    Both Lammle and Odom explain the basics pretty well. If I had to pick one, it would be Odom.

    Easier to read would probably go to Lammle.
    But better book for a novice would probably go to Odom.

    Take that as you want..

    Yes, these books are sufficient.
    You also can watch CCNA INE, Nicholas Andre, danscourses in youtube. Very useful tutorials.

    To provide focus, you might want to invest in the CCNA in 60 Days book by Paul Browning.

    Why not read both? I used Odom as my main source and used Todd's for review.
