I have taken the old CCNP courses (BCMSN, BCSI, ICSW & ONT) as classroom courses, and this beats them all! Chris has the ability to explain technical detail easily and to point out the relevant information, not just loads of stuff that you will not use. I used this in conjunction with Chris's Udemy courses, and find that watching the videos, reading this book, and labbing up the various scenarios works better than any classroom course. One of my best purchases from Amazon. Just waiting now for SWITCH and TSHOOT.. Get busy Chris...

Bryant knows what he is talking about. and before you write a self study book you need to be a teacher,
otherwise you end up to confuse discourage those struggling to understand difficult materials!! I had read Cisco press material by 28 year old wendell Odom over and over but did not understand even one chapter.
I realy enjoyed in this book. It is must must must any one intend to understand ccnp route exam.

I've used Chris Bryant's books and videos for my CCENT and CCNA and passed first time on both and I can just tell you that I used his CCNP Switch ebook and videos to pass my CCNP Switch exam first time too.
His Books are easy to follow and go into a lot of detail, I always struggled with the official books from Cisco, but not any more, and look at the price, so cheap!
Now I'm starting my CCNP Route and using Chris Bryant once again - 5 stars.
