Recommends it for: Self-Learning IT Masochists
This is what a book would be like if it were written by a computer.

I've read quite a few self-study certification books in my time, but this book, along with CCENT/CCNA ICND1 640-822 Official Cert Guide With DVD ROM (also by Wendell Odom) has to be the driest, most unapologetically boring knowledge-vomit I've ever put myself through.

I don't mean that it isn't comprehensive, because it is most certainly that. And I don't mean that Odom doesn't clearly know his stuff, because he absolutely does.

Shelves: tech
Very informative and the author obviously knows his stuff. Tons of diagrams and code samples. Very repetitive - I feel like about 10% of the book could have been omitted because the information had already been explained at least once. While I do agree that repetition reinforces learning, most of the repetition seemed to occur in the same chapters (ie here's what we're going to talk about, talk about topic, you might recall we talked about this, review of what we talked about).

Together with the ICND1 Official Cert Guide, it helped me pass my exam. There were a number of networking concepts that were explained more clearly in this book than in the official Network Academy curriculum or in the classroom, such as IPV6 addressing (especially stateless autoconfiguration and link local addresses) and the intricacies of Spanning Tree Protocol.
