I bought all four CCNA books in this series, I bought them in my second year of university and am now in my third, they are all great books. They are easy to read, well laid out and contain all the information that you would need to know for this part of the course. I use mine all the time, they also contain all the relevant packet tracer labs for the CCNA syllabus. These are so great, I'm currently using this one to help me write a wireless network security dissertation for my degree, I thought they would be boring reference books, but if you have a genuine interest in the subject you can actually read these quite easily unlike the usual boring textbooks you get in degrees.

I would highly recommend getting one or all of these books, I'm keeping mine for life.

Unfortunately this book, or at least the online material are essential parts of the CCNA qualification. The downside is the book repeats itself a LOT, and 100 page chapters just go over and over the same thing again and again, you think to yourself ... I just read that. You will also find a lot that is NOT covered in this book, and 3-4 times per chapter you will come across "this topic is beyond the scope of this book" Incredibly VTP pruning is only covered over TWO pages.

The packet tracers are a lot better though, and some take hours and hours of pondering without lab help.

This book is esential in order to obtain valuble knowledge not only for ccna exam. The theory is very well explained with examples and is easy to follow. I am dealing with networking in the past 6-7 years and this book is amazing. I will recommend this book if you want to pass ccna and gain vital knowledge about switching and WLAN.

However this book has one problem. The book does not clearly explain RSTP proposal and agreement process. It explains what RSTP is but does not provide clear identification how the port roles in RSTP are elected.

Pretty good. Was able to pass the exam without referring to the online course that much. Some of the diagrams showing how the STP elections based on MAC address worked are pretty cryptic. But understood it well enough from the text. It would be good to get a PDF of the book with the book.

As with all the CCNA publications, this is well writen and essential reading for those working towards the CCNA qualification. The material for the course is all available online when registered with CCNA but having a book to refer to wins every time. Recommended.
