ICND1 CCENT (part 1 of 2 for CCNA) Self-Study, Steve McQuery,
This review is from: Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices, Part 1 (ICND1): CCNA Exam 640-802 and ICND1 Exam 640-822 (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)My background so you have some idea that I know of the subject I speak on:
- MCSE 2003/2000/NT CNE 6/5/3 CNA 4 (obviously, I've studied for over 20 exams)
- My mother is a retired English professor with 30+ publications to her name (I've been shown manuscripts as well as the review and correction processes).
Current Status: I read this book, credited to Stephen McQuery, in the past four days. I have begun using the Boson NetSim and ExamSim software to prepare for the exam which I plan to take in 1-2 weeks.
The book repeats itself unnecessarily in several locations. It's almost as if there were different authors with no coordination between authors and no single reviewer to catch the needless redundancy of information.
On occasion (I counted 2-3 instances), the author references an acronym, protocol, or other such important information for the first time, but the writing clearly expects that the reader have prior knowledge of... Read more

Good Content, Poor Editing,
This review is from: Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices, Part 1 (ICND1): CCNA Exam 640-802 and ICND1 Exam 640-822 (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)All in all a good book on networking. The book could be organized better, 6 chapters over 463 pages makes for a little rough reading, they could have broken it into more, less broad chapters.
The end of chapter quizzes are AWFUL. I scored about 70% on the first chapter, but some of their explanations we're glaringly wrong. I went to the Cisco press website and downloaded the errata for this book, and there are 8 MISTAKES IN THE FIRST CHAPTER'S QUIZ ALONE! There are only 50 questions, COME ON! 5 more mistakes in the second chapter quiz...you get the picture.

same as everyone else,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices, Part 1 (ICND1): CCNA Exam 640-802 and ICND1 Exam 640-822 (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)The book has good content, however some concepts are not explained very clearly. I didn't have too much trouble through most of it, but chapter5 offloads TONS of acronyms on you, which they briefly define, poorly explain, and only use the acronym form of it from then on. The end of the chapter review questions are a joke, the answers given in the book are not correct.
I decided to download the errata from cisco's website, hoping it would correct it. Well... you tell me how this is correct:
