    Personally I jump to Wendell Odom by default for CCNA studies, which are Cisco Press books for ICND1 and ICND2, http://amzn.to/1FNlnti , http://amzn.to/1ws6reJ, you can't go wrong. I passed CCENT off of the ICND1 alone, and am currently reading his ICND2

    Second Lammle's books. Written in a way to keep you interested and the humor is actually timed right and good to further keep you engaged.

    His explanations of concepts and labs are straight forward and formatted in a manner to make it easy to understand.

    I have used both Odom and Lammle books. Paul Browning also a good book for getting it done in 60 days. It is a lot of material but still good. Also, you may want to consider some videos to go along with the the books. Trainsignal or CBT nuggets or Chris Bryant's videos are fairly good. (I think Trainsignal is presented in a more professional manner) Also, ExamCram is also another book of choice. You have to find what works for you in reality to tackle a certification. Also, you may consider some live equipment or a decent simulator/emulator such as Boson, Cisco' official simulator or GNS3 (you will need the IOS images to use GNS3). I am currently going over a course from Kevin Wallace for the CCNA that I am finding to be a great course. Got it for 99 bucks instead of 399.

    Not only books, you should also consider going for CBT Nuggets :)

    Second CBTnuggets. You can get the free Micro nuggets with Lammles book which is good if you dont have the cash for a month subscription.

    Can never go wrong with the Official Certification Guide (OCG) from Cisco Press.

    I bought How to master CCNA, written by Rene Molenaar a while ago. Good book if you don't have past experience with networking, I feel like it is missing some theoretical stuff for the CCNA though, so I gave it to a friend who recently started working on his CCNA, he loves the book, the way he explains how to configure the switches and routers are great for beginners.

    I like Odom books. Felt like he was sitting next to me when I was testing
