1. There does not seem to be a location on howtonetwork.net that highlights book errors. There were a couple of labs that I had to modify to get working and it would have been nice to know if these were printing errors.
2. In several of the labs the answers point to other areas of the book that don't have the answers. For example, Challenge Lab 7 requires you to create 12 extended ACL Statements. The answer key points you all over the book and now all examples are covered. In this case it would have been very helpful to have the expected ACL List values in the answer key so that you know that you got it right.
3. SSH wasn't covered :(
4. The price is very very high; especially since all the labs are on the website anyway (no answers though).
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lab book to iterate through in preparation for the CCNA.
I took the self-study route and have invested in a few routers and a couple switches but wanted a solid lab book that would help me prepare for my exam. There are plenty of free materials online but I wanted a hard copy that I could take with me and accidentally stumbled upon this book. [...] While shipping took a little longer than expected, I was pleasantly surprised when it finally arrived.
The labs are completed on modest equipment and, at the most, with 3 to 4 routers and a couple switches. The labs start off with the basics: vlans, STP, etc. then naturally progress to more advanced topics. There are a couple labs which, while not directly related to the exam, shed light on areas of IOS that I never knew existed. Learning how to create macros and alias commands are a couple tidbits that I was excited to learn about. Also, the book helped expand my knowledge of IOS and the use of subinterfaces and loopback interfaces to mimic extra subnets. The authors use of different routing protocols on multiple subinterfaces gave me another perspective on how much can be accomplished with just a couple routers and a single cable!
I've made my way through the first 60 labs and will continue them until I've completed them all. I know that I will be well prepared come test day thanks to the guidance of this book. I would like to point out that there are a few grammatical errors and instances where the diagrams used in a given lab are not 100% correct. If you've come this far along in your studies, you should be able to spot them and make the necessary changes on the fly. Even with a few minor blemishes, this book shines bright. If you're in the market for a lab book that will test your knowledge, please give this book a try.
I have worked my way through the 101 Labs and have found them to be very, very helpful in my preparation for the CCNA Exam. The labs are in logical succession and the diagrams are easy to follow.
I would definitely recommend this resource!
