I was working on a Cisco WLAN project recently and later I passed CCNA Wireless using this book. The author did a good job explaining concepts in plain English and the questions after each chapter are also helpful to ensure the understanding the topics. The diagram on page 295 was very helpful for me to understand various interfaces used in Cisco WLC. It was a challenge for me until I used this book.

I wish in later edition of this great book:
1. include newer WLC models such as 5500 and OfficeExtend APs
2. need to explain the "order" of AP Discovery steps instead of listing them on page 246
3. include a console capture from a brand new AP that discovers Controller IP via DNS
4. Include screen captures of WLC when a new AP was first registered.

It is not just a book for the exam but also a great resource to understand WLAN better

I heard that the official certification guide from Cisco Press has a lot of errors, so I went with this book instead. I used Todd's CCNA Fast Pass guide before so I knew what to expect. This book isn't without its share of typos and errata either, but I thought it was well-written overall. There are some errors that haven't been corrected in the errata yet, but they are generally far and few in between.

The accompanying CD has a self-test engine which is mostly just a re-hash of the exam questions from the end of each chapter, but it certainly does help to reinforce the material. In addition, there are a couple of bonus exams. It would be better if the question pool was much larger, however.

I spent a solid month going through this book (along with some other materials) and I managed to pass the exam, although I wasn't a complete newcomer to 802.11 and already had familiarity with 802.1X and 802.11i which helped quite a bit. I got quite a bit out of this book though as it was my main study source, so I can definitely recommend it.

After attending a bootcamp for my CCNA three years ago and passing my CCNA exam, I looked to continue my Cisco knowledge and certifications by going for my CCNA Wireless. Originally I had tried to prepare with the Cisco Press CCNA Wireless book for self study and felt that it did not adequately prepare me for the exam. Once Todd's book became available I got a copy and retook the exam and passed with flying colors. I definitely recommend the Lammle CCNA Wireless exam guide to anyone who is looking to obtain their CCNA Wirelss credentials.

This is the second book I have read cover to cover from Todd. If you are reading other books to study for the CCNA Wireless, be prepared to take it more than once. Do yourself a favor and buy this one instead, it will save you $150.00. Do yourself a bigger favor and attend his bootcamp. Four days in his bootcamp of hard reading and studying, and I scored a 956...tough to beat that. I would love to see a CCNP wireless book by Todd, but I'm not so sure that one is coming.

I took the Wireless Course through Globalnet training in October. I'm telling you this is the only book that will get you through it. Todd is spot on on all subject matter in this book. After this book I scored a 940 on Cisco's test. The question's I did miss was do to sheer ignorance on my part.Good luck to the rest of you who choose Cisco Press!

I purchased this book after reading so many negative reviews concerning the Cisco Press CCNA Wireless book (and after reading nothing but Cisco Press books to obtain my CCENT, CCNA, CCNP, and CCNA-V). Cisco Press books are great, but they do contain many overlooked mistakes -- both grammatical (just annoying) and technical (coding and figure/table mistakes that can cause confusion). So, I thought I'd give Sybex a second try (I read their ICND1 book over a year ago).

I've read three chapters now, and I wish I would have just stuck with the Cisco Press version. I found more errors in the first few chapters of this book than I found in the entire last Cisco Press book I read. With that, I'm surprised to have read so many reviews suggesting that I purchase this book instead of the Cisco Press book. To support my observations, here are some of the errors I found (these are a few from Chapter 1):

Page 7, first paragraph: "If you look at Figure 1.1 again, you can see the connection back to the wired network is called the distribution system (DS)..." The problem: Figure 1.1's DS is not labeled.

Page 11, first paragraph: "The AP is not connected to a wired network in this example..." The problem: there is clearly a wired network connected in the example, which is right above this sentence.

Page 12, last paragraph: "A good to thing to know..." How do mistakes like this get overlooked?

Page 14, last paragraph: "The uWGB will establish a single wireless connection..." That's supposed to be "aWGB". At the end of that same paragraph: "Good to know is that the uWBG..." That should be "uWGB".

Page 15, last paragraph: References a "Repeater 2" in Figure 1.10, but there is no label for Repeater 2.

Page 23, first paragraph: "...

Best choice for this subject, I think. I have attended a seminar with Mr. Lammle...outstanding...he knows the subject well with a wealth of experience and he can explain it so that it is easy to understand
