Hi, I just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know that I have a
new book out that covers the latest 640-801 CCNA exam objectives.

Advanced VLSM design and implementation, summarization, NAT, Advanced
OSPF conifguraiton, implementation and troubleshooting. Also, all new
switching chapters and revised, updated and expanded Access List and
WAN chapters.

The newest question pool is very large, and very difficult.
Please take a look at my latest Sybex CCNA Study Guide.
Also, please don't attack me for posting this as spam...people ask me
to do this so they can find the latest Cisco material.

Cheers!
Todd Lammle



Re: New CCNA 801 uodated exam


Damn.  I just bought one of your books a few weeks ago as the Cisco press
books simply do not cover enough material to pass the ICND.

Are updates available for your existing books that also cover these latest
objectives?

Allan, unfortantly not. However, if you read my existing book, then
study RIPv2, advanced EIGRP and OSPF configurations and troubleshooting
techniques, as well as VLSM and Summarization, you should be ok.
However, for the price of less then a sample testing engine, you can
get the new book. But, the option for studyting via web searches will
work as well.Oh yea, don't forget about the new switching stuff. ISL,
802.1q on the 2950 and 3550 switches. Nothing too hard, but study
VTP...
Cheers!

Re: New CCNA 801 uodated exam


I'm not trying to shoot the messenger, but I think it's pretty sad that
people who have recently purchased the 4th edition have no option to
get the supplemental material without buying the new book.  This should
be added to the Sybex site, as you have for the errata.  The books
might be inexpensive in the states, but they cost considerably more
when purchased overseas. This "value added service" would far outweigh
the negative feedback Sybex may receive from disgruntled readers.

That aside, do you have any specific web resources where the additional
information you mention can be found?  The CISCO site has lots of docs,
but most of them are like novels.  They are quite technical in nature,
and in my opinion, are more of a reference than an educational tool.

Thanks

You're missing the point.  I just bought the book less than 2 weeks ago and
don't see why I should have to pay for the same thing again.  Cisco press's
books are not up to the standards or completeness of your books, but at
least I can download updates from thier website.

You have a very good point Allan, I think Todd should pressure the
publishers to do the honourable thing.  The publicity and subsequent sales
gained from doing the honourable thing just can't be bought.





Re: New CCNA 801 uodated exam


Yes, I am on that. I will have a web site on the sybex web site and at
lammle.com that will have the updates in the future, I just don't have
it ready yet. The masses have been heard and I am going to answer them!

Todd,
Greate news, well done and many thanks.

Dave.




Re: New CCNA 801 uodated exam


Thanks Todd!
I'm very impressed that you take the time to not only follow the newsgroups
but also respond to issues in a timely and fair manner when many other
authors wouldn't bother.  Thanks and keep on raising the bar!

Re: New CCNA 801 uodated exam


I'm taking the CCNA test this friday feb 18th. I studied from the Cisco
press Intro and ICND books plus some boson tests and labs.

I might be mistaken, but as far as I read on this topic, seems like
that the 2 cisco press books are not enough to pass the exam?

I will appreciate your sugestions and I might re-schedule the text.

Thanks a lot

Regards

Ludwing

The book Todd refers to is:

CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate Study Guide, 5th Edition (640-801)
Published by Sybex in January 2005
ISBN: 0782143911

His previous CCNA books are very good, there's no reason to suspect that
this new one wouldn't also be a very good CCNA study Guide.

The book is available at www.bookpool.com for $30.50 (almost $20 off list).

Cheers!

John
