All You Need to Pass the CCNA!

Awesome book. I have moderate experience and a lot of this was childs play, but he goes further than what you need to know, which is good because it will help you with the trick questions which are probing you to see if you just memorized answers. I'm going for the gusto CCNP and CCIE for the next 6 months so i bought the simulator. it's cool, and is a cheap way to get a lot of hands on experience without your boss screaming at you for bringing the network down (I had that problem, jobless now though). If you just want the CCNA and are on a budget then you don't need the simulator if you can visualize doing the commands. but get it if you're going further than CCNA. my only beef with the book is that a CCIE obviously didn't proof read it, the author shouldn't proofread his own work because things slip and about 4-5 times i found myself stumped and going through the book to find some correlation only to found that it was a typo, not a misspelling but a false double negative statement (he must have changed his mind on how he was going to say it and didn't complete it), i found a couple of them, and a couple review questions with the answer being contrictory to his explanation. so if you're find a contradiction, look it up and write/scratch the sentence.Good luck!

The Bottom Line

I have 2 books about ColdFusion. This one and Dreamweaver MX 2004 with ASP, ColdFusion and PHP: Training from the Source.
This book: Great if you want to learn how to hand-code applications using ColdFusion MX. Very in-depth covering all aspects of ColdFusion. This book does not deal with dialog based apps like Dreamweaver. You can hand-code with DW, however.
The other book (DW MX 2004 w/ASP, CF and PHP: TFTS): Wonderful if you want to learn how to create applications with DreamWeaver specifically as it goes through all the dialog based application development.
Both books are excellent. I have both because I want to know the code behind my apps but I don't necessarily want to have to always type code.
