usually, we buy the book and when we start reading the book, we don't really feel it as real time and half of the stuff would be a content filler with no real purpose.But i felt, there is a good content in this book,diagrams are good (thank you..). which are very important for any good book. I had bought all the other CCNP books from them and I'm reading them now.Only downside is, it's bit pricey. It shouldn't cost this much. especially there are other good books costs lot less.

I bought this book based on the keen Kindle pricing and the promise of something different to the Cisco Press books. On that score it delivers, with a discussion on all the CCNP ROUTE curriculum, although a phrase which is worryingly common is "This goes beyond the scope of the CCNP ROUTE exam and will not be discussed further in this guide".
After reading the guide I felt more confident in the CCNP ROUTE topics and feel that with practice can tak the exam, however saying that, there are a few examples of poor spelling and mistakes in the commands, this distracts from the book in places and means that you have to be doubly sure you practice the commands and ensure they are correct.
a 4 star review on this basis and next stop, the SWITCH book.
