Building Cisco Remote Access Networks offers detailed and concise solutions for working with remote access networks. Configuration examples demonstrate management and troubleshooting techniques. Step-by-step configuration and troubleshooting lists walk you though remote access network set-up and management. In-depth discussions teach you how to maintain and scale a remote access network. Finally, chapter-ending questions help you assess your understanding of key concepts and start you down the path for attaining your CCNP certification.

I didn't take the Cisco course - I just used this book with some experience with the equipment and passed the exam first time with 887. Despite what you might have heard elsewhere, take it from me that this is a difficult exam. It covers a large range of subjects - the book covers all these subjects, however, to echo some of the other reviews here, the book is badly let down by typos and some of the configs are downright wrong ! A few of the chapters also don't go into enough detail, for example, the section on compression and queuing. The book should also cover the router models in greater depth since the exam stresses this point.
Nevertheless, this is definitely the book to buy if you want to sit the exam. If you have been on the course, don't bother buying since the content is almost exactly the same as the course notes. Good luck.

Good book for the Remote Access exams, Its all you need to prepare. Ensure you read the Appendix as well, very important. Also a good book to have in your library for reference purpose. There are a few major typos in the book so watch out. The book covers all aspect of the remote access course in-depth and you should not need any other study guide if you get this one. The topics are well laid out, good examples and case studies. Covers WAN Connectivity, NAT, DDR, Queuing and AAA adequately. Top buy for those looking to sit for the exams, all the very best. Don't forget the Boson test questions most useful as well for your revision

This book is well structured and concise. Although it doesn't have proper lab exercises, the case studies are definitely worth reading. I quite enjoyed reading this booking myself and when I took the exam I understood most of the questions. It is important that you understand DDR (and the commands), AAA, NAT, PPP, Sync, Async & ISDN interfaces & concepts, X.25 & Frame Relay, Modem configuration commands.
Overall summary, it is definitely the right book to invest not just to pass the exam but also as a reference guide. Cisco Press should be the only books that is required to pass any of the Cisco exams.

This book is essentially the BCRAN course notes in a book format. I went on the course after having got the book and essentially got the book as a handout. It therfore covers the ground very well and it was good for the exam. It is however solely content and has no exam preparation. It's also fairly heavy going without actually getting your hands on some kit. I'd recommend it - but suggest you spend some time with some routers to try out the topics.

I passed 1st time with 924 thanks to this book. Very well laid out & has a good end-of-chapter case scenario which is very detailed. Subject material is a bit dry & hard to digest. There's no CDROM & qu's in book are too easy. Everything for the exam is covered in this text. The authors have really laid out the material well.
