I used this study guide in preparing for the CWNA certification (which I passed). Prior to getting the CWNA, I had already obtained a few other WLAN certifications and had purchased several other books. I can honestly say that this program and, in particular, this study guide present the most information and in the clearest way. If you want the certification, then you will have to get this book. Even if you just want a good WLAN reference or to learn more about WLANs, this is one of the books that you MUST have. I consider this to be

Well....were do I start. I took this exam twice before passing it. I think the problem was that I really didn't read the book from cover-to-cover. So on the third try I read this book 6 times.

In short READ this book from cover to cover. A hint: foucs alot on chapter 11 because it hits about 30 percent of the objectives and you cannot check your answers after you move on to the next question. Now thier are some questions that are not in the book like 802.3af standard(s), so read some white papers.

This exam is very hard. The question all seem to be right so you MUST know the aswner like you have worked in the field and that is why this certification is a good one to get.

Well....good luck in your testing and take your time.

I can't state it more directly: this text covers exactly you will see on the test. This was my one and only study source, and I got ~90% on the test. Nuf said on that. Even if you're not interested in the CWNA certification, this text is quite adequate in serving as a reference for wireless technologies.

For those who are debating whether this is a worthwhile certification, think of it as a compliment to your Cisco or CompTIA certifications that will give you an edge over those Network Engineers who are only trained in cabled-networks.

This is probably the most comprehensive and detailed book about wireless technology that has been written. Everything is from FCC rules to RF site surveys are covered in this one book. I passed the CWNA exam on my first try. Everything you need is covered in this book. Well written.

If you haven't done it already, get more information at cwnp.com.

If I was building Wireless LANs at home and for my friends and had no interest in doing the exam, I don't know if I would still shell out for this book when you can google search what you need to know. There is a lot in this book you would never apply in this type of situation.

There are two other well written books in this series for Wireless Analysis and Security and they are filled with about the same level of information (pages) as this book.

I was surprised by how little information was "doubled up" across these volumes. Although it is rare, when it does happen the author's make mention that they will go into detail in later volumes, emphasizing many times that you have enough here to get through the PWO-100 exam. Combine this with what you learn using product and maybe through additional Vendor training, etc., let alone what you can draw on through previous I.T. experience, you will get a sense of just how much there is to know in this specialized I.T. field. It's bizarre to me that there is way too much here for the novice and not nearly enough for the I.T. Pro.

Simply: Read + Absorb this CWNA information and you will be armed with just enough information that *others* may consider you a wireless expert, but you will (likely) still feel like a beginner on the subject. Sure, you will be quite knowledgable, but just browse through even a few other books and you will soon discover that there yet a lot more to know.

Everything here is what you need to pass the CWNA exam if you only want to buy one thing to get that job done. If you are looking for The Definitive Guide to Wireless LANs, this ain't it.

Why limit yourself to vendor specific wireless networking certifications? This book covers all aspects of wireless networking not just specific vendor specifications and protocalls. This is the book to read to prepare yourself for the CWNA exam. This book will cover all areas on the CWNA exam as well as provide you with complete practice questions. The CWNA is quickly becoming the industry standard certification for wireless networking, because it encompasses all aspects of wireless networking and is one of the first networking certification that is not vendor specific. So why limit yourself to vendor specific training and certification when the CWNA can help you prepare for all aspects of the rapidly growing wireless networking industry. I would greatly recomend this book to anyone thinking about entering or expanding into wireless networking. I would also recomend that anyone thinking of entering the Networking industry highly consider training in wireless networking because it is a constantly and rapidly growing.

This book really is two (at least) books in one.

First, it is the best reference manual I've seen on the wireless lans. It seems to cover everything from the FCC rules (through the July 2004 revisions), to all of the various 802.11 standards (a, g, e, f, i, n), to the technology and the mathematics behind the technology, to the equipment such as antennas and the devices that drive them, site surveys, and of course the all important security aspects.

Second, this book was written by the technical team who developed the CWNA exam and certification, Planet3 Wireless. It is written as an Official Study Guide for the exam. It talks about the test in a general sense, i.e. 12% of the exam is on Regulations and Standards. As an exam guide there are study guides, practice questions, and all the rest you would expect.

The final surprising thing about this book is that it is very well written. The English makes sense, and you can understand what they are talking about.
