    A reviewer

    The CCNA Discovery Learning Guide is a great book for your CCNA Exam Preparation and also for learning about tasks you will be performing when you're working as a CCNA. It covers the routing and switching concepts that you are expected to know for the CCNA exam and it also teaches you how to implement certain tasks in the enterprise. This guide supplements the online Networking Academy curriculum, and does a great job implementing everything that was on the online curriculum in two books. Part I of the book is just theory and concepts, and Part II of the book has labs. You cannot succeed in the networking world if you just know the theory or just the labs -- you must have knowledge of both! The beginning of each chapter in Book 1 lists the objectives in a format of questions. I found that helpful because after I read each chapter I was able to go back and check if I really learned the objectives. At the end of the each chapter there were also review questions and challenge questions that made me think and find out what areas I was weak in. There were also packet tracer activities in the included CD, and that really helped because I didn't have the equipment to perform most of them. Book 2 had a lot of labs that helped you enforce the concepts that you learned from Book 1 and figure out how to perform certain tasks. There were challenge labs also that tested my knowledge from all the previous chapters. This CCNA Discovery Learning Guide definitely helped me prepare for my CCNA Exam and improve my hands on skills!
