Title: CCNP BCMSN Exam Certification Guide (CCNP Self-Study, 642-811), Second Edition
Publisher: Cisco Press
Authors: David Hucaby
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good Book!

This book has some interesting stuff about the new switching features that a CCNP must know but does not cover all the exam objectives. Also chapters lack depth. Multicasting chapter is a disaster compared to Karen Webb's BCMSN good old book. Generally most chapters are more like summaries and nothing more.

Not worth it

This book is quite disappointing. It's coverage is both narrow and shallow. If you're after some code to do serial programming from Visual Basic it's probably ok, but any different or deeper than that, you're better off with what you'll find on Google.

Trivial Pursuit book

This book is a must-have in learning .NET because of its in-depth coverage, tips, and great examples. Its discussions on exceptions and garbage collection are the best I've seen anywhere! *Note that an understanding of C# is helpful to get more out of the book since almost all of the examples are in C#. Although this book does a great job at covering the fundamentals and internals of the CLR, I was surprised by the lack of interop and Framework Class Library coverage. Therefore, I must say that this is one of *three* essential .NET Framework books that you should buy. So if you have this book for CLR coverage, ".NET and COM: The Complete Interoperability Guide" (by Adam Nathan) for COM interop and P/Invoke coverage, and "Developing Applications with Visual Studio .NET" (by Richard Grimes) for FCL and VS.NET coverage, you'll have all the materials necessary to be a .NET expert!

Excellent Book

I really like the teaching style adopted in this book. I have read a few books on EJB about 2 years back and I still got this book since due to its excellent reviews and I am really impressed. I have just started with the 1st Chapter and realy feel like going back and reading the book.
