I use this study guide in conjunction with another Cisco CCNA study guide since no single guide can truly prepare you fully for the difficult CCNA exam but reading this book first makes reading the other study guide much easier to do.
The addition of the lab guide really makes this a very valuable package because the Cisco exams are using simulations the make sure that you can actually "rock the command line" and not just able to answer multiple choice questions and it really prepares you for the job interviews where they sit you in front of a small rack of routers and switches and ask you to configure them, if you don't have the practice and experience that you get from doing labs the chances of getting the job (at the pay you want) goes down.
The best practice I have found for studying for any exam is to have a primary study guide and a secondary study guide since they cover the topics but each book will have some further information or detail that the other book wont and it helps reinforce the information in your head.
I liked Todd's explanations better, especially his subnetting chapter - I've never had it explained so well. I'm definitely glad I read Todd's book first and would recommend that path to others.
But this book also has a hidden gem: The "Super Subnetting Chart" is absolutely amazing! It's worth buying this book for the chart alone. I can now answer any subnetting question almost instantly, without having to do any math in my head or on paper. This will definitely help me make the most of my time during the exam.
Now I've just found out that Paul has another book with 101 labs, also $10 on Kindle, I think I'll read that before sitting the exam. No such thing as too much practice!
I rewised the concepts that I forgot from this book, because I studied the CCNA with a very slow pace. All-in-all I spent about one year from the moment I initally logged in to the netacademy and got certified. I wouldn't use this book as a only source if I would start studying networks from a scratch and wanted to get certified. Also I recomend the 101 Labs book along with this. Great value for the money.
I picked up alot of Cisco Press books and could never read them past the first Chapter. CCNA Simplified I think read the whole book at least twice...and the chapter reviews and exams helped me learn the material and ultimately pass the exam.
Anyone wanting to learn about Cisco routers and swtiches should read this book.
Thank you Paul Browning for writing CCNA Simplified.
I found the printed book to be a bit bulky, but I don't think that can be avoided given the amount of information presented. I did spring for the extra $10 to get the Kindle version as well for times when the regular book wouldn't be practical.
I passed the CCNA exam on the first attempt! I'm now continuing towards CCNP using the books from the same author.
