Prepare for - and pass - Cisco CCNA exam 640-607! New from Delmar, this compact test prep manual provides readers with a direct path to mastery of 100% of the networking technologies and product-specific information needed to successfully complete the Cisco routing and switching exam. Cisco CCNA Study Guide begins by introducing and explaining the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) model. Subsequent chapters enable readers to build quickly and efficiently upon this foundation as they hone in on topics covered on the exam, including: IP addressing and TCP/IP protocols, Cisco router configuration and management, high-level data link control (HDLC) and integrated services digital networks (ISDN), Ethernet LAN design and switching, and more! Concise summaries, plus test questions patterned after those on the actual 640-607 exam, are included at the end of every chapter to reinforce key points and pinpoint topics that require further review and study. Clearly written and illustrated with easy-to-understand diagrams, this fast-paced manual is a must" for today's busy networking professionals who want to refresh their knowledge, update their skills, and guarantee their readiness to obtain this world-recognized Cisco CCNA certification. Students participating in Cisco- or school-sponsored network administration education programs will also find this extraordinarily complete study guide to be an invaluable supplement and lasting reference.
