Started out as the guy who would take the extra time to do lunch-and-learns for others at work. Then moved to a job that was 2/3 consulting and 1/3 writing and teaching hands-on workshops, learning what's real and how to do it in a lab. Then to a job as full-time instructor and part time consultant. Finally, started writing it down for all to read. Now writing all the time, with the most most popular CCENT and CCNA Cert Guides since the early days of Cisco certs, all from Cisco Press.

Today, Wendell spends time writing certification guides, textbooks, designing software, and blogging to help those who have all these products. Over the years, the products have ranged from Cisco certs CCENT, CCNA, CCNP, CCIP, and CCIE, all findable here at Amazon.

Format: Hardcover
This is more than just a textbook and study guide. It will join the other members of my career reference library as well. This book covers the material for the new CCNA exam, ICND1 200-101. I like the way the book is laid out. It has lots of colors and diagrams which make it an easy read. Each chapter is followed by a Summary, Review Questions (answers are provided), a review of the key topics, and a definition review of key terms. Command reference tables are also included with those chapters that cover commands. These make nice cheatsheets.
A DVD is provided with this book that contains the following study tools:
• lists and tables from the chapters that are only partially completed which allows you to complete them from memory.
• additional practice problems for some of the chapters. These are great.
• simulated ICND2 and CCNA exams using the Pearson IT Certification Practice Test Exam Engine which works well on Windows 8.1. This simulator gives you lots of practice just as if you were taking the exam.
• lite version of the CCNA Network Simulator from Pearson gives you valuable hands on training without the need for actual equipment. This runs well on Windows 8.1.
• free copy of this textbook in ebook formats, PDF, EPUB, and Mobi.
• videos covering OSPF, EIGRP, EIGRP Metrics and PPP and CHAP which are also critical areas to master.
• mind map solution files and a link to free open source mind mapping software. mind maps help you make put together all that you are learning and see how each piece associates with the others.
• links to install a demo of the CCENT Mind Share Game and a link to install the Cisco Binary Game which is a fun way to build your speed in converting binary numbers which is a vital skill to master.
• helpful links to ciscopress.com and the author's website.

This book is a good resource for those studying for ICND2. I am glad they have updated the graphics, these appear to be brand new, re-worked graphics for Cisco equipment (for previous versions, it appeared as though the author's team just recycled graphics from version to version...).

The IPv6 routing sections are quite comprehensive, thankfully. Also, in this new edition, troubleshooting sections were added for switching and routing.

The only section that I feel is lacking is the WAN coverage, although the materials discussed may be the only items covered on the exam objectives.

Overall, this is a good resource for those studying for ICND2, a great companion to the CCENT/ICND book.

Format: Hardcover
CCNA 200-101 Academic Edition

The first thing I noticed about this book is its weight. It’s over 750 pages, but feels like a book half its size. The paper feels thin yet sturdy. Flipping through the book, I liked the use of color. It could easily have been overdone, but it is used appropriately, and the color helps break things up and highlight the important information. It gives a less cluttered look and makes for a more enjoyable read. The diagrams reminded me of the familiar PowerPoint and Visio drawings I work with everyday. Of course, it doesn’t matter how pretty the book is if the content isn’t there.

Cisco defines the topics for the course, and this book does a good job of logically grouping them. The author does a good job breaking down each topic into sections and explaining each clearly.

Odom has the ability to explain complicated topics simply and clearly. Too often, writers use terms and concepts that they haven’t defined yet to explain a new concept. I find myself flipping forward or googling to figure out what they are talking about. It could be even worse in a book like this, which is the second part of a series, but the author doesn’t fall into that trap. Odom reviews the underlying concepts and technology, before moving on to the subject of the chapter. For example, in the chapter on troubleshooting IPv6 routing, he could have easily just said “if you don’t remember IPv6, go back to the ICND1 book and review.” Instead, he reviews the IPv6 address format and configuration tasks before getting to the actual troubleshooting content. This helps the flow of your reading and helps you learn without a lot of interruptions.

It a good starting point but is lacking information that is asked of you on the CCNA exam. It might be OK for the ICDN-1 exam but I'm not sure. If you do purchase the 2 books Cisco CCNA and Cisco CCENT / CCNA, you might want to look for a simulator that are more accurate to real world scenarios.
