In a way, I may have read this book twice by going on page counts alone.
Due to not having a strong grasp of the concepts after a first read through, I spent extra time on the following topics: In particular, I studied IPv4 to an extent where it was like second nature on how to break an IPv4 address down just by looking at it. The book includes a discount coupon code for Pearson Network Simulator software.
I downloadd it at a reasonable price in my opinion. Just keep in mind, that the labs are hard coded, meaning legit commands on the Cisco CLI may not work in a particular lab because that lab is not coded for those specific commands.
You are also not building custom networks using this simulator. In any case, Google is your friend again, so I recommend for you to seek this tool out for your own learning experience. With GNS3, I was able to freely configure many situations represented in the book, by not only doing it on a lab like basis, but stringing together different configs together in one big network using the book as a reference and the commands I learned from the Pearson Network Simulator labs.
As mentioned earlier, I was using the included practice tests for my studies, but as with any practice test, you start memorizing answers when you do them repetively. It is pricey though, but I was able to catch a summer sale they were having. I used it as a refresher of Cisco concepts in-between labing and test practices as my exam date neared. After all my preparations, looking back at the ICND1 exam, there were a few topics on the exam which I was near clueless on answering.
Thus, I could not imagine someone just using this book only for study and passing the ICND1 successfully. The author does mention for you, as the reader, to seek out other resources, and it is indeed good advice to do so. Time wise, I started preparing for the exam at a snails pace, and ended at a sprint, where I was studying up to hours a day for the last two weeks before judgement day.
I had to delete childhood memories to learn what was in this book. I passed though. The Good: If you have just finished Cisco's Networking Academy and are preparing for the test, you need this book! As many of you NetAcad students already know, the NetAcad material can be long winded and dry.
The content of this book is clear and concise. A topic that would take pages to explain in Net Acad is explained in pages in the Official Cert Guide. I sometimes wonder how Wendell Odom does it. How does he compress all that content into just pages?! The free version of the simulator that comes with this book is great as well. It focuses mostly on part 2 of the book. One thing that I enjoyed about it is that it supports the show interfaces status command a command that is not supported in Packet Tracer.
At the time of this review, the full simulator is not out I would download it if it was. When it does come out, I'd definitely recommend downloading it if you want structured labs that go along with the book. The other more expensive alternative to downloading the simulator is downloading real lab equipment.
Pictures, Examples, Config Checklists: This book has a lot of pictures yay pictures! The pictures really help to solidify the information. The pictures are usually accompanied by examples of how the devices in the picture are configured. Again, this helps reinforce and solidify the concepts. They explain step-by-step what to do to configure a protocol, security, etc.
Don't be intimidated by the size of this book! The bad: Okay there are a couple of errors literally 2 that I've found while reading and fact checking this book along with the NetAcad materials. One is in figure I won't mention what it is so that you can try to use what you've learned to discover the problem.
The other is in table The prompt that you see after entering the vlan global configuration command should be config-vlan rather than hostname vlan prompt as listed in the table.
The hostname vlan command was the prompt that was used with the legacy method for configuring methods. Also, the errors are so small in significance that it shouldn't dissuade you from downloading the book. This book is definitely worth the money. It covers the information needed for the exam and I definitely recommend it for anyone who has just finished NetAcad. There are a couple literally 2!!
I have not taken the test yet, but will take it in about a month. This review is based on my first read through of the book. I will update this review when I pass the exam.
While the book is full of good information the way its written is going to be tough for some individuals to grasp. I manually browsed the dvd and that path doesn't even exist. It looks like other things are intact, just this. I only see one spreadsheet and it says Appendix F Study Planner. Doesn't appear to align with the chapters in the book that I can tell Any suggestions on who I can contact?
Or can anyone share the study planner spreadsheet for this ? See picture attached. This isn't going to help you. However, I wanted to say I am having the exact same problem at the moment and I'm looking to see if there is anything out there on the net about this. Which is so far how I found this thread.
