I have both too. I read half of Sybex book and now got Cisco book so I
don't know if I put Sybex aside and take on with Cisco book. My instructor
told me that I stick with only one book that is the best, so...  What
others think?

Re: CCNA, what book?
I used the ICND book to renew. It doesn't cover all of the 640-801, only the
811

I see nothing wrong with many books. Just figure out the method of
subnetting that works for you and stay with it.

Both are fantastic books.  One is definitive cisco book.  The other is
a great accurate 'study guide' style book.  If you like computer books
then buy both of course.

And for cisco press, it'd be Odom's   CCNA INTRO and CCNA ICND.    For
the 2 exam method of the ccna exam.


Re: CCNA, what book?
Different writers present the information in different ways, I have never
relied soley on one book to study - I agree that ciscopress is top notch,
and so are Lammle's books.

Don't forget, you also have the internet as a tremendous resource :-)
Google is your best friend!

If you value accuracy - then you really are very limited in ccna books.
I tried richard deal's book (the osbourne one)  but there were a great
many errors , not listed in the errata.

Even the definition of internet(lowercase i) was wrong. He defined it
by in terms of less serious marketting terms that came much later -
intranet and extranet! There were many so many other big problems even
in the first chapter.

Odom(writing in official Cisco press style) and lammle(Lammle style)
are both clear and accurate.  Very different styles.  But both
accurate.

What other books are there?

that is just pathetic.

cisco press books, we know. Actually, if you check amazon, you see some
of those cisco ones labelled 1&2  3&4  have accuracy issues.
Other cisco ones mentioned there are Old Editions. The new editions are
by Odom.

That list included a dummy guide.  We know they don't compare to
lammle. Not In accuracy.

Maybe the exam cram one is accurate.

Why not read my post again and use your experience to list good
accurate books. Based on this, I wouoldn't  trust your experience.
Maybe others do though/
Maybe you do have a useful contribution to this thread.


Re: CCNA, what book?
They are good books out there, as well as ebooks which are of good quality.
Lammle's books are topnotch, so is 'The Bryant Advantage' series...

Don't limit yourself to one single book as some books are better than others
and use the internet.

That's my contribution - like it or not.
