Simplified is the wrong name for this series!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cisco CCNP TSHOOT Simplified (Kindle Edition)
Having used cisco press books before i fancied a change and went for this one instead. The text is very thorough and covers just about everything you need to know. In many respects it is more detailed than the official cisco press series but therein lies its downfall. When studying for an exam i do want to know the subject matter, but only what is relevant. This book goes in to too much detail on certain subjects which whilst interesting, consumes valuable study time and can also be confusing. There is a lot to learn for the cisco exams and introducing extraneous material can be a distraction form the task in hand. I can see why the authors have done it, they want to give you a thorough learning experience which is good but i feel a bit more focus would have been helpful. Maybe they should do 2 series, a simplified version focusing purely on getting you through the exam and a 2nd more thorough series delving deeper in to the subject.
