This was one of my first Cisco Press books and the quality and detail of the info is great. Very detailed network information and I wish I'd have read this before I studied operating systems.
If you study for the CCNA certification, this guide would probably be all you need to pass the test. I would also get the Lammle's book as well to cover any blank spots... If you are ready to take it beyond the CCNA level, I would also look into getting the following books: 1. 'Cisco IOS for IP Routing' by Andrew Colton. A lot of information on IP routing protocols (EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, etc.). 2. 'Routing TCP/IP, volume I' by Jeff Doyle. Covers just as much as the Colton's book. 3. 'Interconnections: Routers, Bridges...' by Radia Perlman. Good academic info on routing and bridging. Overkill for the CCNA to CCNP level though.
This book has an excellent study program built into it, however it is not an easy read for someone who is just starting cisco studies. I'd recommend it for reference purposes but not as a study guide. It will put you to sleep.
Worst book I ever read. This book is written for experts and has many missing gaps of information. The testng software that comes with the book is extremely bugged, providing the wrong answers to a question.
FOR THIS BOOK I WOULD SAY, Its the silent teacher! bravo to the writers for such indepth Info.
