For example, in the first chapter we begin some discussion on the format of bits in the MAC address. We discuss what determines the I/G and U/L bits. The book describes the I/G bit as the most significant bit, and places it on the right. As a CS major, this sent me researching (and reeling): that is not the standard. After an initial check with wiki (yes, I know it's not the gospel) for verification of the book's claim, I find l have further reason for doubt. From there I go to the IEEE standard and find, "The first 24 bits correspond to the OUI as assigned by the IEEE, except that the assignee may set the LSB of the first octet to 1 for group addresses or set it to 0 for individual addresses." The I/G bit is the Least Significant Bit (LSB)... not the Most as Cisco Press would assert. Yes, when transmitting the data across the wire, it's true that the LSB is sent first. It's this fact the author is confusing with the notation of bit order on paper- from left to right the LSB is on the right. I only can only guess the author makes the leap that "transmitted first" translates to "read first" and from there, that the I/G bit is the MSB. It only takes a few minutes of research to find the facts; I'm not sure why these assumptions get printed. I paid for the research, yet I'm still doing it myself.
This is just one example in the first few pages and, like I said, small- perhaps inconsequential. Perhaps not. I could see the exam asking me a question on this, and I wouldn't know how to answer: with the true answer, or Cisco's. It simply bugs me and, furthermore, I don't like wasting time leaving my studies to determine reality. The truth should be presented to me in the text, it's why I spent money on it. How hard would it be to have a few inquisitive people read these books and make the corrections *before* they go to press? Put the books in the hands of someone trying to learn the subject, not someone who thinks he or she already knows it. Then, perhaps, the right questions might be raised rather than assumptions made.
Also a small note on the matter of Cisco Press vs. IEEE standards: The standard was less confusing. I don't mean from the fact that it didn't lie to me; I mean simply from the perspective of having a better, more detailed explanation, on the matter.
Note: This is for the older version of the exam. Keep a look out for the new version once it releases. This book does cover the material you'll need for the new exam - maybe 80% of it? But you'll need to skip the frame relay sections and update yourself with other materials on MPLS/MP-BPG VPNs, and other technologies which have been added.
Good luck on your studying!
While this has been great for new knowledge, it is very in depth and solidifies the concepts learned early on in your networking studies. This of course is good for the test, but also reminds you of the little things you might not have thought about in a while. While progressing we sometimes forget the simple stuff, this is a good review for that. I will definitely be keeping this in my library for some time.
