I used to be a CCNA; I let it expire. Now I'm trapped in the hell that involves recertifying something that I really don't want to! I bought Paul's other book about passing the CCNA in 60 days along with this and I'm essentially bootcamping myself through the material to get it over and done with. In conjunction with GNS3 and some switches, the labs range from the very simple (configuring VTP domains), to more complicated challenge labs introducing a large number of different configuration requirements.

After buying this I found out it's a follow along to their video collection. There is no answers to the labs only brief instruction, so unless you have their video collection or you know what your doing (and lets be frank the only reason why you would buy this, is if your learning) your be left in the dark.

I bought this book thinking it would be a great resource alongside others in studying for my CCNA. Well it may have been but I wasn't prepared to pay the extra $30/month for the videos that book is based on.

This book is actually designed to be used along with the video set. If you have bought the book only then you should consider purchasing the accompanying set of videos from the authors website, be prepared to cough up the monthly fee mentioned above.

Feeling quite screwed over on this purchase, will try get a refund.

Absolutely wonderful to get your practice for ccna route and quite simple to get your points.
Anyhow it's pointless to say and you might get supports for your ccna exam.

Practice makes perfect 10 Oct. 2011
By Pacerfan9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wanted to leave a review to say thanks to the authors. This book is exactly what I needed and is one of the best purchases I have made in my networking career. I passed the CCNA one year ago and I am continuously trying to a clearer understanding of Cisco networking and more skilled in my career. For me the repetition in this book is great for practicing and learning new concepts along the way. All of the other Cisco networking books I have read were focused on concepts (and rightfully so) along with one lab for each topic (for me that was never enough). I plan to pursue the CCNP but before I go down that road I wanted to make sure I have solid understanding of CCNA level material, this book definitely helped. I have purchased the authors CCNP ROUTE and recently released 101 CCNP Labs book and have been very pleased with the material I have glanced at. Nothing comes for 10 bucks in Cisco networking, except this book. BUY IT.

Excellent lab book but with a few typos 10 Jan. 2011
By Raymond Raya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While studying for your CCNA, there comes a time where you need to get some hands on with equipment. Some prefer live equipment, others simulators or rack rental time. Whatever path you choose, you'll definitely want to invest in this book!

I took the self-study route and have invested in a few routers and a couple switches but wanted a solid lab book that would help me prepare for my exam. There are plenty of free materials online but I wanted a hard copy that I could take with me and accidentally stumbled upon this book. [...] While shipping took a little longer than expected, I was pleasantly surprised when it finally arrived.

The labs are completed on modest equipment and, at the most, with 3 to 4 routers and a couple switches. The labs start off with the basics: vlans, STP, etc. then naturally progress to more advanced topics. There are a couple labs which, while not directly related to the exam, shed light on areas of IOS that I never knew existed. Learning how to create macros and alias commands are a couple tidbits that I was excited to learn about. Also, the book helped expand my knowledge of IOS and the use of subinterfaces and loopback interfaces to mimic extra subnets. The authors use of different routing protocols on multiple subinterfaces gave me another perspective on how much can be accomplished with just a couple routers and a single cable!

I've made my way through the first 60 labs and will continue them until I've completed them all. I know that I will be well prepared come test day thanks to the guidance of this book. I would like to point out that there are a few grammatical errors and instances where the diagrams used in a given lab are not 100% correct. If you've come this far along in your studies, you should be able to spot them and make the necessary changes on the fly. Even with a few minor blemishes, this book shines bright. If you're in the market for a lab book that will test your knowledge, please give this book a try.

Excellent labs to prepare for your CCNA! 17 Dec. 2009
By ChrisInPDX - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
To anyone who is considering resources to prepare for the Cisco CCNA exam: BUY THIS BOOK!

I have worked my way through the 101 Labs and have found them to be very, very helpful in my preparation for the CCNA Exam. The labs are in logical succession and the diagrams are easy to follow.

I would definitely recommend this resource!

Great content but difficult to navigate efficiently in the Kindle version. 1 Jan. 2014
By M. Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The labs and the lab solutions are in different sections of the Kindle book. So to check your work, or follow the guided part of the lab you have to go to Table Of Contents, then search for the lab solution that corresponds with the lab you are working on (and the solutions are only listed by lab number in the table of contents, not title, like the labs . . . ). Ideally, they would have had a hyperlink on each lab directly to the solution. Or followed each lab directly with the solution sequentially. Nice book, but difficult to navigate. Makes it nearly impossible to gather any kind of momentum.

great study aid 16 Feb. 2011
By F. D. Munn Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good practice for the CCNA exam. I'm sure some pros out there won't find this very helpful, but for people new to the field, or doing self study, it's great. Book suggest your own equipment, but so far, I haven't had any issues useing Cisco's Packet Tracer app. My only gripe, aside from the price, is the solutions for each lab are at the back of the book when they could have been at the end of each lab section. It's kind of a pain flipping all the way to the back of the book if you get hung on a specific command. That is not a major issue and would by no means deter me from suggesting this book. Nice thing about the labs is they build upon each previous lab for a section. For example, lab 2 includes some steps from lab 1, and so forth, so you don't have to go back to lab 1 to refresh. Nice job, glad I bought this! Now, if the price were a bit lower...it would have received 5 stars.
