This book helped me understand not only the basic networking fundamentals but also the core functions of these devices as well. After reading this book I've gained a better understanding and practical knowledge of functions, features, and commands to utilize within these interfaces as our business grows.I thoroughly recommend this book to beginners and experienced people alike. It's scope is large but it explains everything in a satisfactory way. It has greatly enhanced my knowledge of IP technology. If you are not particularly interested in Cisco equipment, it is still well worth reading as you can skip over a lot of Cisco specific stuff or just read it as realistic examples.
This is an ultimate guide to acquiring the needed knowledge one needs to passing the CCENT exam. Have always wanted to learn how to configure and operate Cisco equipment. In a clear and concise way this book reveals the most important information about the Cisco in a simple and easy to learn way. A very helpful piece on getting started and excelling at Cisco networking.
Pros:a) This book is a total of 134 numbered pages. I can see this as being appealing to people who don't want to wade through the usual imposing tomes (both of my other CISCO books are around five hundred pages, and I have a three volume set on TCP/IP).b) He has diagrams throughout the book.c) I like the way he sets up review questions after each section.Cons:This is poorly written . . . I'm not sure if the author had a poor grasp of the language or if he was a beginning student himself and he merely published his class notes. I'm not saying this as the grammar police - he had many unclear, ambiguous and vague statements. I was left with the feeling that he did not seem to understand the subject well. If you are really a beginner, I don't think you'll be able to follow what he was saying. If you know as much as I do (NOT an expert, but someone who is familiar with the TCP/IP stack layers and some networking), you will know what he means, but you won't learn anything. Obviously it cannot be held to the standard of a much larger book, but I feel that a) it misrepresents how much you will learn, and b) the writing is so unclear you will need another book anyway. I did not feel that this was useful in preparing for a Cisco CCENT. I do think a re-write with an eye for clarity could be a nice introduction to the subject.Chapter 1: Fundamentals of NetworkingNetworking Model of TCP/IP & OSIEthernet LANsWAN FundamentalsIPv4 Addressing & RoutingChapter 2: Switches & Ethernet LANsCreating Switches & Ethernet LANsOperate & Install LAN SwitchesConfiguring Ethernet SwitchingChapter 3: Sub-netting & Addressing of IPSub-netting is short for subdivided networkSubnet IP addressesChapter 4: IPv4 Implementation
I remember having a subject on CISCO before. And it seems like it is hard to pass and understand but thankfully I got a good mark on it. This is a refresher to me now and it is exciting to know more about it. Sharing this to my best friend in college.
If you want to study computer network, start to read this book. Helpful if you are an IP network beginner and acquiring some fast and easy to learn facts about networking. Adam does an amazing job of explaining what you need to know about Cisco Routing & Switching. This book was extremely helpful, easy to read, & easy to understand!
This book have everything in a really short-clean fashion, also illustrations helped me visualize the way stuff works well than any material I have read. A very helpful piece on getting started and excelling at Cisco networking. Very quick and simple explanations that are easy to understand but are careful to not leave out important details. This is an excellent study aid.
The Kindle version of this book is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. Don't know about the printed version. As far as the content is concerned, I know enough about networking to know that some of the material in this book is technically inaccurate. Don't waste your time.
