2-0 out of 5 stars TAC Monkey
The author does not waist words when explaining the various 802.11 features.Extremely dry and boring... Kudos to the person who can read this book and absorb the information.I felt like I was reading an RFC.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fundamentals of Wireless LANs
"Fundamentals of Wireless LANS", published by Cisco Press, is a most appropriate title.Having read other books that were intended to have a similar fundamental-in-nature content, "Fundamentals of Wireless LANS" definitely offers more detail.The number of pages alone - almost 800, excluding appendices - are an indication right away that this book will contain a sufficient amount of detail.The reference about the book being authorized for the Cisco Networking Academy Program is also appropriate.The book is definitely geared toward the use of Cisco wireless networking equipment.
5-0 out of 5 stars A ton of info to head soak in
OK, this book is great. If you are looking for general non vendor specific wireless info this is THE book. The gentleman that wrote it Im told worked for aironet before cisco bought them and supposedly WAS aironet from an engineering point of view. As a result the book is chock full of info but , at times, it will put you to sleep. This is not the fault of the writer , rather, it is the fault of the execellent info. Lets face it folks, a lot of this is about as exciting as counting sand at a beach. I highly recommend this book for the level of detail it provides in a relativly short read. You might have to review some of it twice, but again, that is the nature of the beast. Anyone who has studied TDM or CWDM knows what I am talking about ;-) ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay to use but not as your only book
This book does cover the material however, it is organized somewhat funny, a little difficult to follow and the IPv6 section is very weak. If you are new to these subjects this book is not for you. It is easier if you have years of hands on experience or have read other books first.I used it as a complement with the Doyle and new Cisco Press CCIE book plus my own lab to pass the BSCI in a couple of weeks. The CD test engine is too easy. One tip to pass the BCSI, practice, practice, practice.
3-0 out of 5 stars it doesnt cover everthing..
I did read this book entire, my practice tests score were average of 98 to 100%, but I did not pass the exam.
4-0 out of 5 stars Required reading
Studying this book finally enabled me to pass the BSCI.Make no mistake though; this is not a great book.It is poorly organized, it is full of errors (even ones not stated in the errata - I can rattle off quite a few) and basically hard to understand.

2-0 out of 5 stars A LOT of the stuff on my A+ hardware exam was not in this book
Before I took the test, I thought this book was ok, but after taking the A+ hardware exam last week and only barely passing, I have to say that a lot of the material on the exam were MISSING from this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars A+ Certification
I have two books.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent source for exam study.
I purchased this book to use for a+ exam prep (2003 objectives) after conducting a lot of research on Amazon.

5-0 out of 5 stars for the very beginner only
This is a great book for the very beginner person who has no experience at all in SQL. It is very in details and very easy to understand. Unfortunately, I have to return this book since it is not what I am looking for.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK, overall, But Very Incomplete Index
I was looking for more PL/SQL than this book offers (misleading title, I feel), but it contains good material.My biggest frustration, though (and unfortunately, this is shared by many technical books) is that the index is very incomplete.I would say that 80% of what I want to find in the book turns up empty when I use the index.Eventually I can find it by turning many pages, but I'd prefer not to waste so much time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Title Misleading - Very little PL/SQL
I bought this book to learn more PL/SQL, but 95% of it is about SQL. The titlesuggests PL/SQL. If you want to know more about PL/SQL, this is not the book to buy. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars a bit informatin here and there
The book has some useful information about J2EE here and there, but since this is a book serves a guidance for the SCEA exam, most of the contents are either too shallow or irrelevant for that purpose. Don't expect that you can rely on this book only and pass the exam.
1-0 out of 5 stars Copied from Sun Documentation
The statements in the book reads as a SUN document. So if you dont want to take the trouble to sit in front of a computer and search through all the links for certification objectives in SUN website, you can purchase this book.
1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly written book with many redundant and confusing info
I am using this book for J2EE study. After reading chapter 1 and 2, I have to say this is one of the worst tech books I ever read. The materials are harshly composed, often without a consistent and clear framework on various topics (what an irony on a book about a framework). From time to time, I have the impression that the authors just pulled some paragraphs from various articles and piled them together. This gives me the further impression that the authors don't really understand those subjects well enough to distill the essentials out and present them in an organized manner. Unless you are already an expert in those subjects, you will find yourself confused by this book and walk away with more questions than before.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good base
This is a good book, it will get you studying in the right direction.The contents do cover what you will expect in the 70-297 test however I strongly suggest that in addition to this book you use an online test preparation tool (I used Self Test).You will need the practice when facing the verbose (-vv) questions on the test.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Study Guide!
This book was excellent in preparing for the 70-297 exam.Each chapter introduces new concepts, and builds upon the previous chapters in a very logical and easy to understand method.There are many real world examples, and great practice questions for review after each chapter.The CD included with the book has excellent additional materials as well.I would purchase more books from Brad Price and Sybex for my future study needs!A+ all around. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!! Great for Fundamentals
Storage Networking Fundamentals: An Introduction to Storage Devices, Subsystems, Applications, Management, and File Systems
3-0 out of 5 stars Misleading book title
This is a good storage book overall but... released under wrong title. If you erase "networking" part out of the title, it will be exactly what the book is about. Author himself emphasize the book is not really about "connecting function". He also introduces some new terms and even though these are quite acceptable for the discussion matter those terms barely might be seen somewhere else.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent at the Fundamentals
This book was not what I expected...I pre-ordered it as soon as I saw that Cisco Press had a new storage book coming out, and I expected that at least some of its content would cover Cisco's storage products (the MDS line in particular).I got the book the week it came out, looked at the TOC and was immediately disappointed.That's the bad news.The good news is that I read the book anyway and was very pleasantly suprised.This is an awesome book about "storage networking fundamentals".Had my expectations been in line with the very clear title, I wouldn't have been disappointed.The title is not misleading, I just assumed that it would have MDS content.

5-0 out of 5 stars A one-step guide
I was able to use this book as an introduction, and more than an introduction, on the world of cryptography. I started reading it with no knowledge on cryptographic algorithms, ad I learned the principles behind cryptographic algorithms and how they are linked with pratical implementation on security products.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Primer for this Subject Area
I adored this book!It's one of my favourite texts of all time.I used it for a computer security subject and it's a great primer.It covers a middle ground in computer encryption and network security that serves wonderfully as a primer for the novice and a reference for the experienced.
5-0 out of 5 stars Smooth and Quick Transaction

5-0 out of 5 stars Renewed Faith
After attempting to read the MS study guide, I had come to the conclusion that the Microsoft Solutions Framework was just a bunch of UML rebranding, hastily cut and pasted together by lone wolf code hacks with no interest in organized software development.This book has led me to believe that I may be wrong.It IS a bunch of UML rebranding, but MSF still forms a lucid useful framework.
1-0 out of 5 stars Digital Rights Management - I am not a thief!
Careful about the eBook version of this book. I downloaded it at home, and unbeknownst to me activated it. When I took it to work via USB drive, it complained it was already activated.My workplace proxy firewall won't let me re-activate it.
1-0 out of 5 stars Good Info but not for Test
Just got back from the test.I failed it.Not because I didn't have the proper knowledge....I was passing every practice test in the book...but because, for whatever reason, this book did not prepare me for the questions actually asked on the test. Due to NDA, I can't get any more specific than that. Wonderful book for anyone wanting a quick overview (400+ pages) but not the tool for passing the test.I've been developing in .NET for 6 yrs now. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything about wireless security
I was preparing for my CCIE Security and was on the look out for a comprehensive book for wireless portion of the exam, something which was vendor neutral and would cover a lot of wireless protocols and authentication solutions.
4-0 out of 5 stars excellent book for WLAN Security
I give this book 4 stars because in chapter four, the review questions are for the wrong chapter...But this book really gets into the wireless side of Security. I have not taken this test but cannot wait. I have my CWNA cert and had to read the book about 4 time due to the fact that I don't work in the wireless field.

2-0 out of 5 stars Oblivion and Perdition
I purchased this book with the expectation that it would help me prepare for the exam. The CD provides practice exams and other resources to give one the impression they are on their way to certification. However, there are numerous errors in the book as well as on the CD, particularly with the "Edge Test" software, which incorrectly grades tests and does not allow users to select the right answers. This issue is actually moot, since the practice tests actually do not address problems presented in the certification exam. I recommend using the on-line resources affiliated with the testing organizations. They also provide discounted vouchers.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very useful book despite all the errors!
Let me just get it out of the way by mentioning first that this book contains many errors - perhaps more than an average technical book.However, most are typographical and do not degrade the value of the book that much.
4-0 out of 5 stars The best book to start
This book was a good way to start studying for the exam. After finishing the book you are almost ready.

1-0 out of 5 stars Junk
A waste of resources and completely inadequate for the Server+ exam; it does not cover all of the exam objectives.I am surprised and disappointed that Mike Meyers would have anything to do with this prime recycle bin material.

1-0 out of 5 stars This book is really worthless
This book is very poor for the content, the exam is based on hardware theory but this book spends more time on the instructions on how to install individual hardware devices which is good if you lost the manual for the device but is not needed for the exam.1-0 out of 5 stars This Book Doesn't Cut It
This text fails to prepare readers for the Server + exam.It contains some misspellings and inconsistencies here and there, but I really began to worry when answers to some of the practice test questions directly contradicted the text, such as the maximum throughput of a ATAPI-4 device.The text says 33MB/sec, but the practice test answer is 66MB/sec.The text also contains pages and pages of codes particular to individual brands of controllers and operating systems.Also, the term ?Windows 98? is mentioned countess times throughout the text, although it is (obviously) not a NOS.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I bought this book and passed the test.
This book is easy to read and well laid-out. I took the practice exams on the CD and downloaded the free Cramsession study guide. I higly recommend this book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not even close to the VUE exam for Network+
I recently took the exam and was shocked how different the exam questions and topics were vs. what's printed in this book.This book is easy to read and you do learn a lot ..but just don't let it be the only book you use to prep for the exam.I don't think any of the sample test questions from the CD (included with the book) were even close to the exam questions.Despite all the negatives, I ended up passing the exam but I'm giving the credit to my own luck and experience instead of this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great review book
This book is a great review book and a great source to give you a feel for the test. It is not a study guide or ref. book. It does have a few technical errors covered by another reviewer but overall it's a book very worth the money and time. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Resource for XML Editing
I have found "Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Microsoft VB.NET" an invaluable tool in XML editor development. It is quite detailed about accessing and manipulating XML data.

1-0 out of 5 stars More confusing
I was reading it as first book for most of the topics, It was total waste of time to read it.
1-0 out of 5 stars Very Poorly Written
Judging by the positive reviews, this book must have some merit but it is certainly not in the quality of its writing or its accuracy.Perhaps the editor was reassigned to Longhorn duties.Here are some examples of what you can expect in the first two chapters:

2-0 out of 5 stars Okay...but don't count on it
I recently started studying for the Security + exam. I have about two years of security experience and about four years total computer experience. A friend of my who has his MSCA, Net+ and A+ has recently failed this test for the third time! After reading this book I know why. He used this as his primary study material and believe me when I say that it is far too shallow to prepare you for this exam. I have been a big believer in Exam Cram up until this point. I've read the book but am also reading some of the CISSP books just to make sure. This test is too expensive to fail that many times.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disturbingly inept
To be blunt, this is one of the worst sources of technical information I've run across. The content is cursory, meandering and frequently inaccurate.
4-0 out of 5 stars Part of what you need.
Exam Cram used in combination with Sybex and Preplogic practice tests from the preplogic website did the trick.By itself, the book was a little short on some topics, but it covered items that the other two I previously mentioned did not. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but still a great study tool
Before you do anything, make sure you are looking at the 2nd Edition of this book.If the top of the book does not say "Updated For Windows Server 2003 R2", then this review will probably not be helpful.
4-0 out of 5 stars Another good one from Sybex
This book is a very good guide if you are looking to take the 70-290 exam. The topics covered align with what is covered on the exam but as always, you should use several sources when preparing for an exam.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book, but you will need more references to pass the exam
Sybex books are usually my favourite books for the exam.

Editorial Review

Every partner company of Cisco Systems needs a number of Cisco-certified people on its staff. While the basic Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) exam will satisfy basic Cisco requirements, the Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) indicates more rigorous training and greater capability. Job applicants with CCDAs will outshine CCNAs every time. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for reference but not passing the test (640-861)
Although it contains useful information but does not come close to covering the exam objectives.The new CCDA exam (640-861) tests extensively on design and other topics such as VoIP and IPv6.I read the book cover to cover, went through all the questions at the end, covered the scenarios, but all that prep just wans't enough to cut the mustard.
1-0 out of 5 stars This book and the exam cover different material
There's a lot of interesting material in this book. It does a good job covering different LAN and WAN technologies, routing protocols and voice over IP technologies. The problem is that it doesn't cover the same material as the exam. I read this book cover to cover and studied until I knew the answers to all of the review questions in the book and on the CD. Then I went and took the test. I was very surprised by the material covered on the test, because it wasn't what I had studied at all.

1-0 out of 5 stars Completely outdated
The exam has been significantly updated while the resources for it have not. This book is seriously out-of-date compared to the exam, and the exam is the reason you are looking at this book, right?
