This book is poorly put together, dry, repetative, and does a very poor job of explaning the material. Whatever good there is in it seems verbatim from Cisco's web site.
Save your money.

Very hard to read and understand. May not be what you want!!
I am preparing for CIPT exam. I thought this was the preparation guide for CIPT. I was hoping that this book goes in depth analysis of all components of CIPT clearly. In my opinion, this book is short of explaining VoIP protocols. It needs a little more elaboration on the fundamentals. For example, I read about clusters in this book. I was very much confused. Then I read about the same subject in Cisco CallManager Fundamentals. It was actually a streightforward concept. All discriptions in the book are confusing, and insufficient. I vote strongly against this book if you are planning to buy this book only because you are preparing for the CIPT test. It might be a good reference for using the CallManager menus.

Very Useful Overview of CallManager
I didn't buy this book to pass the CIPT exam. I bought it to fill in some gaps in my CallManager knowledge in preparation for the CCIE Voice. I found it to be a useful introduction to CallManager. It takes the reader through the basic configuration of CallManager using well thought out (albeit fairly simple) examples. It is very similar to the materials found on the CIPT course.
If you are going to have to administer/configure a CallManager for the first time - this book is a good place to start.
If you are going to sit the CCIE voice it is probably too lightweight for your needs (although it is on the prescribed reading list!)
