I passed this exam a year ago with this book and the practice exams. Aside from some work experience or hands on with some equipment, this book, and pratice exams, are all you need to pass. Of course, like all of the books in this series (being vendor neutral) they have great value as references after you've passed the exams.
If you don't own it, buy it now. This is the new Wi-Fi security reference book. As the head of Wi-Fi training and certification for Aerohive Networks, I've put this book, as well as the new CWNA Study Guide by the same authors, into every instructor-led class student kit. Additionally, all technical employees at Aerohive will receive one of these books (as soon as they're finished reading the CWNA book). I know each of these authors/editors personally, and you won't find a more experienced bunch of Wi-Fi professionals. Wi-Fi administration and security is what they do...it's all they do. I think I bought the first 40 copies, and I plan on buying hundreds more. This is the one - just buy it.
This book provides a detailed in depth dive into security for the wireless engineer. A must for the aspiring engineers and a great reference resource for everyone. For the certification you can do no better then this book.
I bought this book as a text book for a grad school class. The information in this book is a lot like that of the CISSP "a mile wide and an inch deep." The information given in the book covers a wide range of topics for wireless security, everything from wireless security policies to wireless security tools. This book is exactly what it is a certification prep study guide and seems to do a decent job of trying to prepare the reader for the CWSP. However if I did not have to buy this book I wouldn't for learning about wireless security and exploits. I'd choose a book specifically geared for wireless penetration testing and exploitation.
This is a difficult but necessary certification to have for an aspiring wireless engineer (wifi). This book does a fantastic job of laying it out for you and helping you "connect the dots." If you've worked with wireless security protocols but don't know/understand the details, this book will help fill in the blanks. It is also exceptional preparation for the CWSP exam.
I found this book extremely informative. The authors have done a thorough job in explaining and repeating where necessary ,the important concepts behind Wi-Fi networking and breaches.The chapters are organized in a logical order. The comparison between various authentication/encryption methods are explained quite well. Whether you are a newbie or a pro in WLAN, you will find this book to be a great resource.
CWSP study guide is a must-read for any wireless professional working in the complex world of wireless Lan design, management and implementation of wireless applications. The authors have created a functional and detailed go-to reference book on a complex subject. Whilst the CWSP book is essential to individuals looking to obtain the CWSP certification; any wireless professional would benefit from having this book in their technical reference library.I have the pleasure of working with Shawn Jackman and David Coleman for a number of years. Both bring a wealth of knowledge and - most importantly - real world experience to the table. I highly recommend this book for anyone responsible for managing, designing or troubleshooting wireless infrastructure.You will not be disappointed by purchasing this book; CWSP study guide will become invaluable and dog-eared, in your day to day life as a wireless professional.
