From Barnes & NobleAs of November 2007, there's a whole new CCNA exam. And, while routing and switching are still important, you'll need to know far more than that to pass it. Cisco will now test you on everything from VoIP to security, DHCP and DNS to IPv6. It's a much tougher test. If you're working from an old study guide, it's obsolete. The good news: Todd Lammle has written a great new one.
Lammle is arguably the world's No. 1 CCNA expert. (Forget "arguably." He just is.) In this book/CD package, he covers all you need to know to pass the new CCNA: from VLANs, WANs, and wireless to troubleshooting and administration.
In so doing, he leverages everything he's learned through more than 25 years of networking experience, and decade-plus of experience training network professionals and preparing them for certification. That means plenty of real-world examples and scenarios. And it means content explanations that have been thoroughly tested in his live seminars.
Short of stuffing Lammle himself into the box, this Deluxe Edition delivers training in every way imaginable. Each chapter contains tough review questions. The CD-ROM contains eight full-length practice exams, 400-plus electronic flashcards, and the whole book as a searchable PDF. Lammle himself shows up in a series of audio and video movies. And you get the "Platinum" version of CCNA VirtualLab, superb preparation for CCNA's hands-on simulation questions.
Incidentally: As with the last version of CCNA, you can achieve certification by taking one huge exam or two smaller ones. If you pass the first of the smaller exams, Cisco will now bless you with its new entry-level CCENT credential. Whichever path you take, this package will help you from start to finish.
