Hi,
I passed the CCNA with the Sybex book and a class-based training (which
didn't really add to the reading). I'm now studying for the CCNP, starting
with the 642-801 BSCI. The Cisco Press book I've got says it is not designed
to pass the exam without some extra tuition (now it tells me!). I'm not sure
I'll be able to get to more class-based training, and I don't have a lab
(though I want one) or any hands-on usage at work(though I want some). Have
any of you guys passed the 642-801 by just reading the books?
TIA,
Tookalow.

Don't bank on just reading the book. It really depends on your rate of
comprehension. I had to use a couple of 2600 routers to verify commands and
to tie a lot of the reading together. 642-801 is probably the most dificult
out of the suite
