The official book for studying for your CWNA-106 exam. I have read the book cover to cover and will attempt my exam soon. The book does a great job at covering all topics required for the exam in depth. It is a little dry, but it is a textbook after all, so no marks off for that. Real-world examples of topics are included to help to enforce these. These examples were one of the most enjoyable aspects for me - to see how the ideas, technologies, problems or solutions are experienced in real life.I did notice that information is stated over and over again: "As you learned earlier in this chapter...", "In the previous section, we mentioned that...", etc. This happens a lot. I just skimmed through again and can find a reference to a previously discussed topic on every fourth page or so. I can see the benefit of this every once and a while, to help reinforce topics, but found that this happened too often. I bet the book could shed about 50-75 pages without these. This is my only gripe, and it is a minor one.I had the Kindle version and I found it to be great. I thought I would hate a textbook in Kindle format but the search and highlighting tools on Kindle for PC were a breeze to use. I found it faster to jump around, and the fact that I can search keywords was great. Because of this, I actually preferred it over a physical textbook. That being said, I think it would be too cumbersome to search and jump around on my physical Kindle Keyboard.Essentially, if you are planning on writing the CWNA-106 exam, this book is a must-read. I wouldn't attempt the exam without a cover-to-cover read, along with some practice exams for good measure. Make sure you do the 20 question tests at the end of each chapter as well.
