Overview

Although it's the first step in the Cisco Career Certifications, the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) exam is a difficult test. The recent additions of performance-based questions have made it even more challenging.

When you're ready to test your skills, complete your knowledge of exam topics, and prepare for exam day, you need the preparation tools found in Cisco CCNA Exam #640-607 Certification Guide from Cisco Press.

Completely revised by CCIE and Certified Cisco Systems Instructor Wendell Odom, Cisco CCNA Exam #640-607 Certification Guide is a comprehensive study tool for the CCNA exam. Updated with new content and features to make it easier to read and reference, this book helps you understand and master the material you will need to know to pass the exam. The instructor-developed elements and techniques enable you to maximize your retention of exam topics. "Do I Know This Already?" quizzes open each chapter and allow you to decide how much time you need to spend on each section.

Challenging chapter-ending review questions and scenario exercises help you assess your knowledge and reinforce key concepts.

This edition of the book includes special features in both the text and CD-ROM to help you prepare for the new simulation-based questions you will encounter on the exam.

In addition to these exercises, the robust exam engine on the CD-ROM includes the new question types so that you can assess your ability to handle this new challenge. The CD-ROM's test engine includes powerful features that enable you to take practice exams that mimic the real testing environment, focus on particular topic areas, track your progress, and refer to electronic text to review concepts.

Cisco CCNA Exam #640-607 Certification Guide 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

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.
