1.0 out of 5 stars Not what the title says. June 8, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The title is wrong. It is more a review guide for CCNA and less a command guide. The book has no index of commands so if you are looking for a command that you don't recognize, you must know what process is associated with the command first to have any hope of finding it quickly in this book. It is organized in a "how to" fashion as opposed to a command dictionary as the title would imply to me. It has been of little use and a waist of money unless you are just starting your first class of Cisco and need a study guide. Then it might be useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portable command guide March 23, 2009
Format:Paperback
This portable command guide is a must for anyone working with CISCO switches and routers. I used this command guide as part of my study for the CCNA, but have also found this book an excellent referral for everyday work. This guide describes everything from configuring a switch at start up to setting up both standard and extended access lists. Routing protocols are also covered, showing you the actual commands required.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome guide. February 24, 2009
Format:Paperback
This little book is what every CCNA should own! It is a great reference not only for exam study but while on the job. I keep one at my desk when I need to look up a command. Its small size lends itself to carrying around.

I like the fact that it gives full configuration examples and also makes mention of optional commands for the configuation. It can be quite tedious to use the Cisco website and this book fills a much needed void.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have May 18, 2008
Format:Paperback
If you are taking the Cisco Academy classes, you will wonder why this book is not a required text. I sure did. One of the other students in the class bought one in and, after taking a look at it, I ordered myself a copy the next week. The book very clearly lays out, with examples, the commands needed to configure Cisco routers and switches. The text does not give you detailed background as to what all the commands mean and the various options for each command, so you will still need to "know your stuff" in order to get the desired results. However, if you are like me and spend time trying to remember the right words to type in on the less common configurations, this is a great tool to quickly get you to the "Oh, yeah! Now I remember."

Format:Paperback
This book is an excellent companion to the CCNA offical course. I use it almost daily when configuring the lab routers. It was well worth the cash outlay.

3.0 out of 5 stars CCNA Portable Command Guide (2nd Edition) September 28, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It has all the commands you'll need but it's not very user friendly. You have to go through every chapter to find a command. An index would be nice to lookup the specific command you're looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle DX User July 6, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a CCNA instructor and I own a previous edition of this book in soft cover; it is excellent and my students find that it helps them mentally organize the CLI. I downloaded the Kindle DX version of the newest edition and it nicely summarizes the new material in both the CCNA Exploration and Discovery curricula. The only reason I did not give it a five-star rating is that the images that contain tables and text in the Kindle version are not crisp. They appear in gray scale and look like a scanned version of a color page. The CCNA texts books use lots of green-gray in their images and many don't show well in the Kindle version. I even tried landscape and zoom but some of the image text is still not legible, otherwise, it beats lugging 30 pounds of text books to class every day! Both my students and I are waiting for the Kindle DX version of the CCNA textbooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a must to own!!! July 17, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is awsome to have if you are network administrator or working on cisco devices as a portable reference on day to day basis. Also for your CCNA certification reviewer. I just love this on my frequent operation use.

This is recommended.
