This book is the bees knees if you want to teach about Networking security. It is very concise, does not leave anything out and follows Cisco's syllabi. I highly recommend it.

The book's content is well presented, easy to follow, and makes sense of a complex subject.

The practice test software on the accompanying CD, however, is unusable. It can't connect to Pearson to authenticate the user, because the programmer(s) made a mistake.

Wireshark reveals that the software attempts to send the user's credentials to http://tempuri.org/ which is a website owned by Microsoft, not Pearson or Cisco.

Wireshark also reveals that the software sends the user's credentials in unencrypted plaintext, which is not very reassuring for a book devoted to network security...

Pearson is aware of the problem, but only acknowledges it if a support request or erratum is submitted. To save a future purchaser time and hassle trying to report a fault, just download the latest version of the software from http://www.pearsonitcertification.com/content/downloads/pcpt/engine.zip

Got this one on Kindle, very good read while on the go. I spend a lot of time travelling, reading this text on my Nexus 7 with Kindle software is great. Book is well organised and written by one of the best Cisco teacher I have have ever seen - Keith Barker. His way of explaining things is almost perfect - almost because there is always something that require extra attention and checking other sources. I enjoy reading every chapter of this book. It is great help in my CCNA Security exam preparation...

This is another excellent guide from the CISCO library. Be aware thats as of the 30th of November 2015 this qualification will retire and you will no longer be able to sit the exam. The guide was good and goes into more depth than is often required but was oddly missing some information that CISCO put into the exam in later months which was acknowledged by the author on the web.

Theres not really an alternative. Luckily this is all you need.

The book itself is great just don't buy it from amazon get it directly from cisco press. The access codes for the practice exams it states comes with the book were not sent and amazons response was that it is not their problem.

No nonsense intro to Cisco Security technologies, established and respected author so no surprise the content quality is spot on. Recommended.

Awesome CISCO book. The information in this book is really helpful not only as a preparation for the exam but also for the real world use.
