Good content, terrible Kindle format 19 Aug. 2013
By Downingtown - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Kindle version of this book has every single table of commands formatted as an image, and not text. That means it cannot be scaled, and reading the book on a PC results in very difficult to read tables. The tables are the real content of the book - ALL of the commands reside in these tables, and not a single bit of it is formatted as text. Other books in this series, like CCNA Portable Command Guide, have at least the vast majority of tables formatted as scalable text. This book is almost entirely image-based. Hopefully this will be changed in an updated version.

Good for command line lookup. 7 Mar. 2013
By Kahntraddiction - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As the title states, if you have questions about certain commands you can easily look them up in this little guide.

Only complaint is that (and again with ciscopress) they don't offer you a digital copy. There are other companies that give you a CD loaded with FREE extra content and a PDF copy of the book.

Good Quick Command Reference 25 July 2012
By Nathan Gilliam, VCP - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been a great easy reference for learning Cisco switch commands during a new datacenter project. It's well organized by function. As an improvement, I would suggest expanding on real-world syntax examples.

Good book 31 Jan. 2011
By Jeffrey O'donnell - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Book is useful and contains numerous helpful command-lines and examples of how to configure various tasks. Some of the examples seem rather basic and I've had to dig through them to apply them to some situations I'm encountering at work. A very useful reference guide.
