To become a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), you must learn the hundreds of IOS commands used by Cisco routers and switches. This handy reference from Cisco networking authority Todd Lammle is just what you need to master those commands. From a thorough introduction to Cisco's basic operating system to making the transition to IPv6, Todd Lammle walks you through hundreds of commands with short, to-the-point explanations and plenty of figures and real-world examples.
Lammle takes you from the basics (booting a router, entering setup and router configuration modes, configuring hostnames and passwords) all the way to sophisticated IP routing, VLANs, and security. Using hundreds of commands and output examples, he helps you work with EIGRP and OSPF; configure Layer-2 switching and STP; set up static and dynamic NAT; and securely configure Cisco wireless technologies. There's even a full chapter on IPv6, which is on the CCNA exam even if it's not in your network yet.
If you're still looking for alternatives to the command line, Lammle thoroughly introduces Security Device Manager (SDM), Cisco's free web-based tool for device management and troubleshooting. Whether you're a command-line maven or not, you'll find something useful in SDM -- probably, quite a lot.
Lammle, of course, is singularly well-qualified to write a book like this. His CCNA prep guides have been translated into 12 languages; his company trains thousands of Cisco certification candidates every year. Lammle and his colleagues know more about CCNA certification than anyone -- and few people know more about IOS, either. Bill Camarda, from the December 2007 Read Only

I bought the book per recommendation that it would help me with my CCNA studies. After reading the Odom book and using other study materials, I don't feel I got my money's worth out of this book in particular. I used it to look up a couple commands, but in the end, it wasn't worth it for my studies. This would likely be more useful for day-to-day use at work.
