A Cisco book through and through
As a seasoned student of Cisco and it's long list of educational offerings, this book brings no real suprises. When will Cisco take it's educational books seriously? This book is better than most when it comes to simple mistakes but there are still plenty of mistakes and when you see complete paragraphs duplicated on the same page you know it hasen't been proof read.
There is not the detail that Cisco books normally provide. Some sections go straight to the configuration without any real explanation of what is going on. Screen dumps lack the content to allow you to clearly see the full configuration. There is a real lack of clarity, probably the worst of the books I've read so far, and I've read a few. But, I've come to know that if you learn all that is in the book you will pass the exam. That is the only good comment I can make about this 'standard' Cisco offering.

This book is lacking the quality of other cisco press books.
This book has absolutely no flow to it. It is just a bunch of raw information taken directly from Cisco's site. This raw information is then all jumbled up and thrown between two hard covers.
I have read numerous Cisco Press books, up to this point I have been very pleased. I'm currently on page 187, and I honestly don't think I can bring myself to suffer through reading the remaining pages.

Very dry and not very clear on some parts
If you are suffering from insomnia - your remedy is here!!! Tough to read. Many parts are just there for the heck of it (debug and other troubleshooting commands/explanations) - they simply give you the output - I can do that from my router! You need something alongside of the book if you are a novice in some of these areas. I used additional materials from Cisco website. Why 4 stars? Passed the test. I guess it is good for something.
