CWNA and CWSP Exam

Hi All,
I am beginning to prepare for CWNA and CWSP Exam. I am based out of Bangalore, India.

Actually, I was preparing for CompTIA Mobility+ Exam and reading up about it, I got to know that lot of material is similar to CWNA exam. I am also from Information Security background and currently hold below certifications:

RHCE | HP-UX CSA | VCP4-DCV | CISSP | GISP | CCSK | CloudU | CompTIA CE | ITIL-F | ITSM-F

Being from an information security background, I thought, it would be worthwhile to do CWSP as well. Also, currently, I do not hold any network specific certification, so I thought, CWNA and CWSP combined with Mobility+ would be a good mix.

I have started reading the official guide for CWNA and CWSP. Also, I procured the CWNA/CWSP guide from Tom carpenter from McGraw Hill publications.

Inputs:

1) Your thoughts?
2) Are the book good enough to cover the depth and width of what is required on the exam?
3) Are there any other prep steps/resources to be taken to achieve a successful attempt?

Thanks and regards,
Pravin Goyal

    I would really suggest a fundamental networking background of the Network+ and CCENT. 802.11 itself is OSI Layer 2, but you need to understand Layers 3 and 4 for it as well. Understanding the difference between hubs and switches and half/full duplex will help you understand how wired and wireless packets differ in how they are handled.
