Practice for the new CCNA examas well studdieswith hands-on networking lab scenarios. Understanding the concepts covered on the Cisco Certified Network Associate exam is no longer sufficient to succeed on the test. In order to be completely prepared to succeed on the exam, studiew well ptactical in your daily job as a CCNA engineer, you must be able to apply conceptual knowledge effectively in a production environment. CCNA Practical Studies is the first book of its kind, providing you with a hwap of detailed lab scenarios that illustrate the application of key internetworking topics.

CCNA Practical Studies is a comprehensive reference that helps you cdna essential hands-on experience in home- work- or remote access-based lab environments.

An equally effective supplement to concept-based study guides or stand-alone reference for applying CCNA knowledge pre- or post-test, this book presents numerous examples that cover the entire range of CCNA topics. Starting at the physical layer of the OSI model, you use a layered approach to learn how to build a small network.

Each chapter tackles a major subject area such as router configuration, routing protocols, bridging and switching, ISDN, access lists, IPX, and more. Each subject presents a mini-lab, walking you through the lab scenario and explaining in detail the commands used, why the authors chose the specific commands, and the resulting configurations.

Comprehensive configuration and troubleshooting labs are added to the end of the book, allowing you to understand how routing technologies interact. This step-by-step lab scenario approach is designed to teach you how to apply the knowledge acquired in the process of becoming a CCNA.

CCNA Practical Studies by Gary Heap, Lynn Maynes

Whether you are preparing for the CCNA exam, seeking to enhance your on the job skills, or looking to gain confidence before your next job interview, you will find the lessons laid out in this book invaluable. This book is part of the Cisco Press Practical Studies Series, which offers readers a means to apply theoretical knowledge through hands-on lab scenarios for key networking technologies.

This unique approach enables readers to practice and hone their internetworking skills while preparing for Cisco certification exams. Since Cisco manufactures much of the hardware underlying both corporate LANs and the Internet, network professionals appreciate material covering Cisco basics. Practical Studies targets network professionals studying for their Cisco Certification Network Assistant CCNA exam, focusing mostly on the newer performance-based testing section.

It provides hands-on information about configuring and troubleshooting a complex network using Cisco devices. Although the recommended lab simulation equipment is pricey, the book can be used as a study guide on its own; step-by-step resolutions of real-world scenarios are helpful both as study aids and as practice for network professionals. Complete Reference is a professional-level source on configuring and troubleshooting Cisco devices. Both titles are recommended for larger libraries where advanced networking titles circulate.

Interview: Lynn Maynes and Gary Heap, CCNA Practical Studies | Articles

I need lots of hands on, over and over again. Yes I can understand from 2 earlier reviewers that in order to really get the maximum use out of these practicals you need access to Cisco equipment.

But unlike MCSE, where you can put 2 PCs together and you are off to the races, that is a major decision, no doubt about that. So unless I get a lot of hands on at work, getting the necessary hands on, the amount of practice needed is GONNA be on my own time. One person found this helpful. Not quite what I expected but it is still a good reference book.

I do not have access to all the equipment needed to do the labs. Received as expected by description. I have always wished that there was some sort of lab manual for the Cisco Press books that would allow the student to be able to work with real world examples. Now with the release of Practical Studies you have a handy study companion to work with.

The page book is more than just an ad-on reference manual it is a useful study tool for the new exam. The authors went to a great deal of time and effort to make sure all exam objectives were covered and the material up to date and technically accurate.

One thing I was impressed with is that this book fits right into any ICND training course because not only does it cover the exam it provide information for other CCNP exams as well. The breakdown examples use actual router code and show you what is happening throughout the examples. While this manual is for the intermediate to advanced user the material is tailored made for those ready to take the exam but need just a little more help. One drawback is that you will need a great deal of equipment in order to follow the examples and that’s why a router simulator should have been included.

Also the book does not have nay practice question software and this is something that should also be included in the learning process. Overall a few minor adjustments and this book are ready to use. This book is only recommended for people who intend on going further than CCNA as a guid for building a serious home lab, or else those CCNA candidates who already own good router simulator software.


For everyone else, you can pretty much ignore this book until they update it to be fully conformed to the CCNA exam.

CCNA Practical Studies

This is a decent lab guide on how to set up your Cisco home lab, detailing what sorts of gear you need, how to configure it, and some challenge problems that will not only prepare you for the CCNA, but for real-world work.

By the time you work through the book, you will get setup practice, switching and VLAN configuration practice, routing practice, and even some insight into network design. Measured against that standard, this book is nearly a 5-star book.

But there are two very important flaws the potential purchaser of this book should be aware of: The book gets 1 star knocked off because it still has a lot of reference to Token Ring LAN technology, which is practically extinct. By basing so much material on these two obsolete and non-exam technologies, this book loses much of its value.

So the biggest cumulative deficiency is that the book is in dire need of an update the entire text from the old exam to the current CCNA test standard. As mentioned by others, this book does require access to a lot of lab gear, which is cost prohibitive for someone just starting out in networking. But it’s not nearly as expensive anymore. If you are just grabbing a book and equipment for long enough to pass the CCNA exams and intend to do no further Cisco certification work, then you probably do not need this book.

The most use you could do would be to read it for the examples and solutions, and maybe set up all this in a simulator environment like the Boson router sim. If instead of a simulator, you want actual hardware that’s simply adequate to pass the CCNA exam, then go to Amazon [ However, if you are in the networking business to stay, then this book and the gear involved will be the basis for your continuing professional education, providing you with a source for plenty of hands-on experience across a broad range of problems.

Just be sure to buy the Ethernet versions of the series routers, not the token ring versions. So, yes, by the time all is said and done, you will have laid out some cash to build the lab.

But the cost is not nearly as much as some practiacl said. And you can use studeis to set up and explore network scenarios as a job aid for your day to day work as a network engineer.
