I'm going to break this review down into three sections: 1. The Book. 2. The Extras. 3. The Conclusion.

1. THE BOOK
------------
The book is well written. It's easy to understand, and overall, a pleasant read, albeit dry as expected. It's not as bad as other books I've read though. This one will not bore you to death quite as bad as the rest. It is, however, filled to the brim with useful information, even some that's not required for the exam. Normally I'd say the irrelevant info would be a bad thing, as it would distract you from the objective, but in this book, it's a great thing. The authors make it a point to tell you they are going over the top, but are teaching you very important lessons that will most certainly help you grasp the content at hand much better.

2. THE EXTRAS
--------------
This is where my biggest problems were. It wasn't implied, so expecting it was my own fault, but I did expect a .pdf copy of the book included with the software extras that comes with it. This is pretty much common place now a days, and I was disappointed to see that it wasn't included. There were no extras included physically with the book. They are all a download from either Sybex or CWNP. DO NOT GET THE FILES FROM SYBEX! There are multiple errors on their copy, and it makes following the exercises in the book difficult. The correct version of the files can be downloaded from CWNP from [...]
3. THE CONCLUSION
--------------------
All in all, this is a great book. It is the only official study guide for the CWNA exam, and reading it, following the extras (especially the flash cards), doing the labs, and re-reading this text will ensure you pass the exam the first time.

This book is great. Too bad it doesn't come with a PDF copy (I am taking one star away because of this).

If you want to truly understand Wi-Fi, this is about the best book around. This is meant to be a certification study guide, but I would recommend it even if you have no intention of taking the exam.

Even some of the most experienced IT professionals are pretty ignorant on Wi-Fi. Makes sense since IT folks are used to a digital world, but to really understand Wi-Fi it takes an understanding of RF also.

This book if far from easy, the concepts are pretty hard to master. But the book presents the concepts in as easy to understand way as possible. If you master this book you will really understand Wi-Fi, but if your new to it it's going to be quite an effort. For those of you for this is a bit too much, try the CWTS book in the same series from CWNP - still quite good but less intense, as it's the study guide for the CWNP's entry level test, while the CWNA book is the study guide for CWNP's higher level exam.

good luck,
Huckleberry

I am taking a wireless networking class that required a Cisco book that was outdated and vendor specific. The instructor recommended this book as an alternative for the course so I went ahead and purchased it. I am glad that I took his advice on getting this book. The book is very comprehensive in the subject of wireless networking without promoting a specific vendors technology. The book is designed to get you to pass a vendor neutral certification so it concentrates on teaching you all about wireless technologies across the industry. I recommend that anybody that wants to learn about wireless networks should get this book.

If you are a network admin, you must buy and read this book. So, much of wireless technology is misunderstood and this book makes Wi-Fi perfectly clear. Must have.
