    A Useful Book for CCNA candidates
    I think this book is prefect choice for the CCNA candidates to learn, prepare and practice for the exam 200-101. This book is quite easy to understand the networking technology thoroughly by it. Also, it provides us the networking knowledge by many figure and lab example. It highlighted the key topic too, I think it is very useful for us. Compare this book from the others similar cert guide, this book provide the most accurate information for us. But in the same time, this book should explain some more extra information to link the concept together, so the reader can remember them more easily. I suggest to buy this book rather than the translated version from Cisco Press, because the translated version is very difficult to understand and pass the exam in English. Overall, I think this book is quite good.

    With Cisco's refresh of the CCNA certification track, Wendell Od

    With Cisco's refresh of the CCNA certification track, Wendell Odom brings the ICND series up to date with this book. Wendell's writing style is easy to follow and makes even some of the driest subject matter interesting. The ICND 2 Guide is not only a great book to prepare you for certification but it also highlights some valuable fundamental knowledge a junior network engineer will need working on actual Cisco gear such as network management, and IOS file and configuration management. Even if certification is not your goal this guide will teach skills that will be invaluable in your day to day work on routers and switches.

    Are you planning on taking the 200-101 ICND2 exam? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Wendell Odom, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that discusses the content and skills needed to pass the 200-101 ICND2 exam.




    Author Odom, begins by discussing the concepts behind the IEEE Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and how it makes some switch interfaces block frames to prevent frames from looping continuously around a redundant switched LAN. Then, the author shows you how to configure, verify and troubleshoot STP implementation on Cisco switches.  He continues by reviewing IPv4 routing, and then focuses on how to use two key troubleshooting tools to find routing problems: the ping and traceroute commands. Then, the author looks at the most common IPv4 problems and how to find the root causes of those problems when troubleshooting. He then discusses the need for a First Hop Redundancy Protocol, how the protocols make multiple routers act like a single default router, and the configuration and verification details of both Hot Standby Router Protocol and Gateway Load Balancing Protocol. Next, the author discusses the need for VPN technology when sending private network data over public networks like the Internet. The author continues by introducing the fundamental operation of the Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol for IPv4, by focusing on EIGRP neighbor relationships, how it calculates metrics and how it quickly converges to alternate feasible successor routes. Then, he walks you through the most common problems with IPv4 routing protocols, while alternating between OSPF examples and EIGRP examples. Next, the author explains the core concepts of how to build a leased-line WAN and the basics of the two common data link protocols on these links: HDLC and PPP. He also explains how to build a Frame Relay WAN between routers, by focusing on the protocols and concepts, rather than the configuration. The author continues by giving a broad description ofmany other types of WAN technologies, including Ethernet WANs, Multiprotocol Label Switching, and digital subscriber line. Then, he discusses the concepts and configuration of three common network management tools: Simple Network Management Protocol, syslog and NetFlow. He also explains some necessary details about router internals and IOS. The author continues by discussing Cisco’s current methods of granting a particular router the right to use a particular IOS image and feature set through the use of IOS licenses. Finally, he suggests a plan for final preparation once you have finished the core parts of the book; in particular, by explaining the many study options available in the book.




    This most excellent book focuses on how to help you pass the ICND2 exam or the CCNA exam. In fact, the primary objective of this great book is to make you more knowledgeable about how to do your job.
