great book, cd is trash
this review won't matter anyway since cisco retired this exam, but i think the problem with this publication may be symptomatic with other similar titles. the book itself is great. the cd however has a lot of problems with it. i am refering to the test engine. the answers are wrong, the simulations crash a regular pc, and unless you take it with a huge grain of salt, the test with wrong answers seriously makes you doubt your knowledge and shakes your self-confidence. proceed with caution!

This is the book for the 640-607
I have been studying for the CCNA for about 2 years and have read many good books in preparation for the test. However, specific content relevant to the 640-607 is simply not included in the older books. Of course, I don't think I could have passed without the wonderful books by Todd Lammle who seems to have a knack for making impossible concepts understandable. Heather Osterloh and Anthony Chiarella are other good authors who provide relevant, practical information. And many others. But, for me, this was the book with the current, relevant information needed to pass the test. The current test will be unavailable at the end of September, so it is impossible to determine how well this information will relate to the new exam. Nonetheless, the practical, understandable material will certainly overlap all of the objectives. Thanks Wendell Odom.

This book is pretty complete, but its a bit overwrought. It makes things seem more complicated than they really are and at times goes beyond the scope of the CCNA exam. As a few other reviewers already stated, its a good reference book, but not the best study guide. The Todd Lammel study guide from Sybex is better suited to preparing you for the CCNA exam in my opinion.
