Great for exam prep, be sure to have hands-on experience,
This review is from: CCNP Routing and Switching Official Certification Library (Exams 642-902, 642-813, 642-832) (Certification Guide Series) (Hardcover)Cisco recently revamped the CCNP track to realign its focus on pure routing and switching. The new exams are SWITCH 642-812, ROUTE 642-902, and TSHOOT 642-832. A trio of CCIEs authored these guides. A valid CCNA is a prerequisite for the CCNP exams, so CCNA level knowledge of topics covered within the guides is assumed. The guides set out to fully cover CCNP exam topics, but often a basic review is included with each chapter.
I recently completed the CCNA certification, and am now pursuing the new CCNP v6 track in addition to the CCNA Security certification. I've typically self-taught and used the Official Certification Guide for each Cisco exam, and they are typically high quality. The books in this library are no exception.
The SWITCH Official Certification Guide includes coverage of Spanning Tree, VLANs, trunking, security, L3 switching, and other topics related to Cisco switching. I found Hucaby's writing style to be very readable and felt coverage... Read more

A good series that delivers where it counts: the exams.,
This review is from: CCNP Routing and Switching Official Certification Library (Exams 642-902, 642-813, 642-832) (Certification Guide Series) (Hardcover)Recently I have had the opportunity to review these books as part of my journey to the CCNP certification. I had high expectations for these books prior to receiving them, and needless to say they do not disappoint.
Recently the CCNP track was updated and now includes only 3 exams (from 4). These books reflect those changes and do so in an effective manner.
I started my journey a bit out of traditional order by starting with the TSHOOT book, primarily because it closely related to some projects I was working on. Kevin Wallace is by far one of my favorite Cisco Press authors and this book continues his tradition of excellence. His writing style and format "just works" as it were. Perhaps my favorite part of these books were the various scenarios presented that give some real-world style networks and issues to resolve. Personally, this is my favorite style of learning. Reading is great, but reading towards a purpose is even better. All in all, I believe this book... Read more

Excellent source to pass the CCNP exam track.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CCNP Routing and Switching Official Certification Library (Exams 642-902, 642-813, 642-832) (Certification Guide Series) (Hardcover)After completing my CCNA certification, I decided to pursue my CCNP using this library. Here is a breakdown of how I felt about each book. In the end, I was able to complete the CCNP exam track with the help of this book and ALOT of hands on lab time. I would not solely depend on these books to pass the CCNP exam track. Overall I would have to rate the set 4.5 stars (due to the switch book, please see below for further explanation). The $90-100 spent on this library is a small investment towards the knowledge you will gain from reading them. Good luck for those pursuing their CCNP!
ROUTE: (4 stars)
Coming from a CCNA certification, I decided to pursue my CCNP starting with the ROUTE exam. I've used books previously from Wendell Odom to pass my ICND1 and ICND2 exams. For those coming from CCNA get ready to have your head explode from the knowledge dropped on you from this book. I was fortunate enough to get a 5th printing of the book which corrected many of the... Read more
