Book Recommendation

I stumbled across a book today - Network Warrior, by Gary Donahue.

It is quickly shaping up to be one of my favorite Cisco Networking books.

Anyway, it received great reviews - definitely worth a look.

    I was looking at that book a few weeks ago, I will have to get it soon with all the great comments I've heard about it. :)

    Stay away from Todd Lemmle books altogether. There are serious issues with his books as they lack practicality.

    For example, I have access to his newst book 640--802 through my company's website and it is seriously flawed; it seems to me that he just rephrases RFC's. To give you an example, his chapter on VLANs is a total failure; it describes what it is (of course Wikipedia describes that too), but it can't tell you how to do it, except few commands. That's why I posted VLAN questions here, as it has no labs/excercises to learn from. I suspect, he's been able to using marketing tricks to mislead pepole his books are the best, but at least I would give him good grades in some parts, e.g. subnetting, but an F overall.

    All in one: If you take my advice, stay away from Todd Lemmle'b books.
