When choosing a book of this kind to purchase I find that there are some things to consider other than just the accuracy of the information presented. First and most importantly, I found most of the material presented to be accurate. Two of the errors I found are typos. On page 230 the author is trying to make an example while talking about digital circuits and while he clearly meant to say “T1, E1, E3, or T3” it is printed in the book as “T1, E1, T3, or T3.” Very minor, yes. What is not so minor is the very obvious misprinting of almost an entire table. The table for “number of supported hosts given a specified number of host bits” not only mistakenly calls the host bits borrowed bits, but the formula is printed completely wrong as well. To Pearson’s credit, if you follow a web address they have printed in the book you can get a Word document (not the PDF that the book describes) documenting some other errors that have been identified, and corrected. The book has several features that I find common place in this type of guide; the importance of certification, who should read this book, chapter quizzes, as well as how to prepare to take the real exam. Unfortunately there are several common features missing as well. The most glaringly obvious is a lack of a printed practice exam. Most books of this type offer one or two printed in the book itself, there is none here. Another testing issue is the answer key for the end of chapter quizzes. The answer key for every test question in the entire book fit on three pages. It lacked a detailed answer key which would explain both why the right answer is right, and why the wrong answer is wrong. Another almost completely missing feature is any kind of hands-on-lab. Only chapters 5 & 13 offer anything similar, and they’re really just math problems. I also found the “goals & methods” section to be missing some content at the beginning of the book. It mentions there are 2 goals of the book. The first is to help you pass the certification test. The book then goes on to briefly explain how the author intends to do that. Goal number 2 is never stated, though one can assume the author intends the reader to gain a full understanding of the topics covered. My biggest complaint about this book is the practice exam(s) on the included DVD. I can understand how Pearson might want a more secure way to protect their practice exams, but I believe they’ve gone too far. The book claims the included DVD contains 2 practice exams (among other features), but reading of the fine print confirms that the statement is a lie. Pearson includes proprietary software on the DVD which allows you to download the exam(s) onto your PC using the provided code. 1 code provided, 2 exams promised. That means the book owner can’t access the test(s) without internet access. Despite my various complaints about this book, there are several things that impressed me. Chapter 10’s explanation of command line utilities was extremely thorough, including both Windows and UNIX versions of the commands. The DVD includes 10 videos which cover the OSI model and the topic of IP Addressing. The DVD also includes printable appendices, Cisco sample content, and a demo of a Cisco networking game. My favorite part of this book was the Binary-to-Decimal and Decimal-to-Binary conversion discussed in chapter 5. It was presented in such a straight-forward and easy-to-understand way that I feel comfortable doing those kind of conversions in my head now.

I have tried to read this book but really cant get into it. Some of the ways he explains are difficult to understand & these are some of the I already know because I have prior knowledge of some network fundamentals. The author expresses to much about things that are going to be discussed in later chapters which is annoying. I see a lot of great reviews for Mike's comptia books so Im going to check that one out.
