This book covers the WAN concepts that you will encounter on the CCNA Exam. It has chapters covering Basic WAN Concepts, PPP, Frame Relay, Network Security, ACLs, IPv6, NAT, DHCP, and Network Troubleshooting. The beginning of each chapter lists the exam objectives in the format of questions, and it also lists the key terms that you can look up in the glossary. I found this helpful because I could easily look up whatever term I was unfamiliar with before I started reading each chapter. I could also get an idea of what I was expected to learn from this chapter by reading the exam objectives. The diagrams in each chapter were explained in an easy to understand format, and that really helped me understand the concepts. The activities with each chapter helped me reviewcthe concepts that I learned in each chapter. There is also a "Check Your Understanding" and a "Challenging Questions" part at the end. These really tested me and helped me make sure I understood the concepts in each chapter. I was easily able to figure out what areas I needed to improve in. After going through this book I'm very confident of all the material I learned in it. I now have a clear understanding of WAN concepts, access lists, and network security. I highly recommend purchasing the CCNA Exploration Accessing the WAN Labs also for hands on experience.

Used this to study while I was doing the CCNA course . Helped me those few times I couldn't go online to study the material .
Very detailed in some instances as well as long -winded in other cases but the information is invaluable .

I know they say " print is dead " but in some cases it's a lifesaver .

I'm currently in the Cisco Networking Academy and the books they give you for each module are basically just softcover written versions of the Academy's online course, without the pictures, illustrations, tables, or diagrams . No index, no glossary and no end of chapter review questions and answers.Dull.The hardcover companion guides have everything and last forever. Yeah, they cost more, but to me they are worth it.

This text was very useful throughout the CCNA 4 course I was enrolled in. This material, along with the instructor's information and the Cisco online material/PacketTracer labs provided an in depth look at WAN issues. I am keeping this book as reference material for any future projects that may come up.

I bought this book for my college Cisco course. It (along with the Study Guide) was exactly the same as the book(s) from the college book store, but cheaper. I got both books for the price of this book in the store. Delivery was fast. So all in all. It is what I ordered and wanted. No surprises.

This series is very well done and by the time you finish the book and the exercises you've pretty much learned what you needed to know. The packet tracers on the companion disc are very useful. The size is convenient for reading and studying.

good it was good, what else is there to say, it was a pretty technical book if you know what I mean. If you don't go to sleep by reading it you are going to learn something. Actually, it is mostly for my computer technician wife.

This book is good for class but also needs some more detailed instructions, not leaving out steps.
Step by step hands-on instructions would be a great gift in anyone learning networking.

I was taking Cisco4 in the Cisco CCNA Academy and this book helped me out tremendously. If cisco recommends it, it must be good....I even reference the book now in CCNP classes. Good Buy!
