4.0 out of 5 stars CCNA Exam Cram Typographical Errors 10 April 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is a good companion guide to the Cisco publications however there are a few errors that leave examples ambiguous or practice questions unanswerable.

Example
----
Practice Exam #1, Page 410, Question 15: There are clearly two routers in the question however the answer (Page 431) states there is only 1.

I could list a couple more but I'm studying for my exam, i know, how cliché.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exam Cram 8 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
I found this exam cram to be exactly what i thought id would be -i.e you're not going to pass with this alone (thought id state the obvious) but this is sooo useful for fitting in your coat/bag and taking it to work/in the car/use on your lunch break just to bang out some quick Q&A's

Fantastic, well worth the investment (plus handy to keep coming back to even once you have passed to keep on top of things)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great supplemental study aid 16 April 2010
Format:Paperback
As the title says, a great study aid. I also have the Sybex CCNA texts and I can say that the Exam Cram book is nowhere near as heavy going but it doesn't cover the subject as in-depth either. Nice to get the same subject matter but from a different perspective than Todd Lammle for a change.

Be warned though, there may be a new edition about to be released as 2008 is referred to in the future tense throughout the entire book.

5.0 out of 5 stars CCNA ExamCram 19 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book for assisting learning for the CCNA exam, whether going for the 2 separate exams or the all-in-one. When used in conjunction with the CCNA Official Exam Certification Library (CCNA Exam 640-802) (Exam Certification Guide Series) and the CCNA Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2) this book will help revise the important parts of the curriculum to make sure that you (like I) pass your exams first time!! Also very handy as a reference guide on the desk once the exam is passed :)

2.0 out of 5 stars A work in progress 21 Feb 2008
By Uncle Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While I am a big fan of the exam-cram series, this is a let down. It still has all the information summarized as much as possible without losing detail but the errors are simply appalling.
As the 640-801 exam has been retired in favour of the 640-802 exam, it seems that the publishers,writers (or whoever) decided to quickly rewrite the previous edition with a few updates and get it out as quick as possible. It seems a shame that they couldnt delay its release by a few weeks and proof read it. Wrong diagrams, missing diagrams and some explanations that are just plain wrong are amongst the errors. Probably most frustrating are the review questions with the wrong diagrams or answers displayed.
Do not use this book without having plenty of other Cisco material handy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't use unless you like a challenge 28 Sep 2009
By J. Mintzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I last got my CCNA in 2003, and was looking to recertify. Since the test has changed a fair bit over the years, I simply got an exam cram book. I suppose the glaring errors, mistaken diagrams that don't agree with the expected quiz answers, and other mistakes are a test in and of themselves: spot the sloppy mistakes that made it past editing, and that will prove to yourself how well you understand the material. The glaring mistakes on the quiz in Chapter 12 alone made me put down the book, and seriously think about getting another one. Especially sad, given that this is the third edition.

A shame, because I've been a big, enthusiastic fan of Exam Cram in the past.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little editing would have been nice... 12 Dec 2010
By J. Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am almost done reading this book. The benefits are that it has been a quick read in order to review some of the most important details on the CCNA before I take my test next week... I guess I should feel pretty confident and ready for my test because I have been EDITING this book all the way through. Either I must be smarter at Cisco than the authors, or the mistakes are SO OBVIOUS that had the authors spent ANY time reading through and editing this book they would have caught them.

As others have said, missing information, incorrect diagrams, and outright INCORRECT information is found all throughout this book. As an example, and the reason why I decided to take a break from studying in order to write this review, on page 322 the authors claim that the four class B networks 172.16.0.0, 172.17.0.0, 172.18.0.0 and 172.19.0.0 can be summarized with a 172.16.0.0/22 route. /22?!?!? Are you serious?!? Anyone with a BASIC understanding of subnetting could tell you that 172.16.0.0/22 would give you a range of addresses between 172.16.0.0 and 172.16.3.255. FAR different than the four networks listed as being summarized. Now, either they screwed up with the subnet mask, or they screwed up with the network numbers (they probably meant to type 172.16.16.0, 172.16.17.0, 172.16.18.0 and 172.16.19.0). But either way the question still remains of how the hell could they miss this HUGE mistake. Even a SINGLE reread should have caught this.

Mistakes like these are all over this book. So, unless you have a pretty good understanding of Cisco already, I would not recommend this study guide. It is fine for what I am using it for--a list minute review before my exam. But, if you expect to LEARN anything more than just a basic review of what you already know, then you really should look somewhere else!

2.0 out of 5 stars Third Edition 13 Oct 2009
By Doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The 16 chapters are full of detailed specifics needed to pass the CCNA without being too wordy. The authors discussed most topics with detail that gave command line and topology examples. However there were also a few topics that weren't given as much attention. For example the RSTP enhancements, port security, and route summarization. The first half of chapter 15 repeats the first half of chapter 7 (the Frame Relay section) and even uses the same end of chapter questions. Chapter 17 provides an example network that needs to be configured. Most of the end of the chapter review questions were useful. A few chapters had wrong answers to questions or were completely missing diagrams. The book includes two practice exams.

The measure up CD had the same questions as the practice exams in the book. There are also router simulations that were similar to the scenarios in Chapter 17. I did find the measure up CD useful. The router simulations were decent because they asked to have more than just a serial interface configured with an IP address.

2.0 out of 5 stars dissapointed 18 May 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just took my 640-802 and failed by 7 points... I feel as though I would have done better with some other guide. I have some major complaints. For one and this is a big one, the test pool is to small, you only get 150 test questions so after you take the exams a few times you basicly know the answers. The formating on som simple tests don't even fit the screen! the simulators are not much of a simulator at all.. You have to type everything out no short hand. All of the errors it's terrible. I spent alot of time trying to figure what i'm doing wrong on the chapter tests only to find out the questions are wrong or the ip address is wrong or they show you a diagram of what looks like a linksys router and your suppose to know that sometimes it is a switch and sometimes it is a router, interfaces inproperly labeled. I'm rambling but it is to prove a point. it really seems like the book is thrown together. the first mistake is on the second page where it says the 640-801 test costs 125.. i don't know about you but I'm interested in passing the 640-802. find something else, you will thank me oh yeah and if your reading this book already i have one thing to say COMEBACK2009 your going to need it!
