Used this book to pass the PW0-071 Certified Wireless Technology Specialist exam.Be sure to download the practice tests as they aren't included in a CD with the book, you have to get them from www.sybex.com/go/cwts2e (it's in the product description). I skipped most of the vendor specific training segments in the book since the exam itself is vendor neutral.Very broad overview of wireless networking. Good foundation for the more detailed and complex CWNA exam.
This is a fabulous study guide, one of the better in the IT world. It is straightforward and easy to understand. Using this guide alone as my only study tool, I scored 92% on the certification exam. This book made it so easy. The review questions presented in this guide are representative of those on the exam, and all test questions are covered in here. Diagrams are easy to follow and make the point effectively. I also like that the author occasionally goes into extra detail, and wants to share his knowledge, providing background relevant information and explanation, but clarifies whether such is covered on the exam. My only complaint about this guide is that it is becoming slightly dated, and does not address upcoming standards of equipment, such as 802.11ac and beyond, which are already on the market.
The book is designed as a study guide for the CWTS and is exactly that.The subject is covered well with good end of chapter questions that mimic some of the prep tests I have taken.This is a beginners guide with lots of vocabulary.
This book is great easy to read and follow what author explained and proved by real case scenario. I just passed cwts exam last week and this exam preparing for exam Cwna. If you read this book well and do practice along with purchasing practice on CWNP official website you will pass with confidence. Good luck!
I bought a Kindle Edition and reading it on my Samsung Tablet with Kindle App installed. Everything is well formatted and comfortable. You can download CD Materials which come with paper edition from Sybex.com after free registration.There is no need to say more about what's inside - this is the only source you need to have a good basics in Wireless Networking.
This is great training material for anyone looking to learn 802.11 WiFi Wireless communication. I highly recommend it to anyone working in Information Technology or anyone looking to make an investment in WiFi technology. I acquired my CWTS Certification from CWNP!
It gave a lot of general informative information to give a beginner a good foundation in wireless technology. I've learned a lot thus far, and hope to eventually go on to the Professional level soon, (Security CWSP, or Analyst CWAP).I would recommend this book.
Vendor CWNP is not as advertised as much as some vendor exams out there but being this is a vendor neutral exam it really helped with understanding the basics and fundamentals. I passed my CWTS exam only 4 weeks after getting the book. However if you really want to delve down into wireless technology then read CWNA by the same vendor. That is a really really good book that expanded my knowledge in wireless technology and troubleshooting skills.
