On the whole a fairly good book in my opinion. It helped me pass my ROUTE exam. It's not the clearest of Ciscopress titles, and there were a lot of errors in the published version (although most of these have been picked up - the book contains a weblink to the errata details - definitely download this). Glad to see I'm not the only one who finds IPv6 addresses difficult to write/read! Practice questions and memory tables are good.

The book is way too long, this could be condensed into probably half of what it is, I got bored reading and used CBTs instead. This book is good for reference, but not to actually learn from it for the exam.

Format: Kindle Edition
The Kindle version of this book does not include the CDROM or the Boston Exam Environment BEE activation key(normally found on a piece of paper in the CDROM case on the hard version) which are usefull revision tools. I bought the Kindle version but have now had to buy the hard version as well. Some of the illustrations are not very clear due to quality issues on the Kindle version. I am using Kindle for PC which will make the text larger but will not enlarge the illustrations. I used the Windows screen magnifier which did not improve the situation as the images are of poor quality to start with. Otherwise not a bad Kindle book if you buy the hard book as well. Make sure to download the errata and highlight all issues before reading.

Very nice book to use for your CC NP/IP route studies, if you can afford to do so -- best to use in conjuction with a lab of routers to make sure you can do the practical as well as the theory.

Passed first time using this, without using any nonsense like testking etc .

Go through book and back up the theory on a lab.

When I first picked up the CCENT book by Wendel a few months ago I was dismayed by his technical writing but after a few chapters I fell in love with it and embraced his style. Now studying for CCNP, I find the level of detail perfect and although, as mentioned in a previous review, the book does introduce some concepts early on that are not fully covered until later, it doesn't do so in a way that's distracting but rather peaks your interest.

I've also read Implementing IP Routing (ROUTE) after completing this book and I found it boring, with long chapters (100+ pages) that were just dragging. It truly made me appreciate Wendell's no nonsense, technical, to the point writing that treats you as an intelligent student. I still recommend reading both books as there are a few gems in the later that Wendell doesn't mention in his book, something that seems to be true for all three exams in the current CCNP curriculum - esp SWITCH. One study source is simply not enough to pass the exams.

No offense to Wendell, he must be an expert in his field.

My personal opinion of this book is that it does not help much in passing the exam. Basic concepts are convoluted by complicated examples and wordy descriptions that don't quite explain things clearly. Instead of slowly introducing the theory step by step, the book jumps around, with examples early in the book using concepts that are explained later.

In short, Wendell's method of explaining things may suite fellow seasoned CCIEs but will only confuse lesser professionals.

Having let my original CCNP lapse a few years ago, I'm thankful the new CCNP books place more emphasis on the practical implementation and less on the long-winded verbose format that many Cisco books suffer from. Mind you, at 700+ pages it's still a slog. I'd recommend setting up the scenarios in each chapter via test kit or GNS3 within each chapter to make the exercises much more interactive and solidifying.

As 'T' stated, lots of errors in the published text, particularly with command syntax so be careful!

I read only the first four chapters (EIGRP) and 'till now I think it shows
a good explanations of the subject.
I don't know how the future self-study book will be but, as usual,
you will need to use a simulator or put hands on the hardware to nail
the subject.
