CCNA books

By aellingson ·
I am currently trying to obtain a CCNA cert for work, but I am not sure what books to get. I have looked at Ciscopress.com, but there are several books to choose from. Which one in your opinions are the ones that are the most comprehensive.

Sybex, by Todd Lammle

by ghstinshll In reply to CCNA books

The Sybex books written by Todd Lammle are awesome. I started a couple months ago with the book and a good simulator, and I've been able to do very well with it. He writes them so they're very easy to read, and the logic behind them is pretty good. It's not totally dry material the way he wrote it. I'm taking a class where they're using the book, and they have some CBT's that he did too, and it works well together. If you already work with the equipment a little and/or have others you work withwho you can resort to for questions, then you'll be in good shape.

Makes a good comment about simulator

by davidpmartin In reply to Sybex, by Todd Lammle

Jason makes a comment about a good simulator - and I have to echo the remark. Many people sitting for the CCNA think they can get by using a good CCNA book. With the arrival of simulator questions on the exam, and the passing score now above 840, if you don't work with routers or have access to a lab or good simulator, it is VERY hard to pass the CCNA exam.

BTW the Sybex book by Lammle is a good text - most of Lammle's Cisco Cert stuff is pretty first rate.

CCNA Books

by Clint_naidoo In reply to CCNA books

Hi Aellingson

I used the Cisco Prep guide for 640-607 and Sybex CCNA guide together with a Real-exam transender.I passed the 640-607 exam the first time with a score of 988.These three guides got diffrent ways of explaining things, which makes it easy for the user to have a broad concept of whats going on......

hope this helps
