  • A Must Have
    If you are taking the Cisco Academy classes, you will wonder why this book is not a required text. I sure did. One of the other students in the class bought one in and, after taking a look at it, I ordered myself a copy the next week. The book very clearly lays out, with examples, the commands needed to configure Cisco routers and switches. The text does not give you detailed background as to what all the commands mean and the various options for each command, so you will still need to "know your stuff" in order to get the desired results. However, if you are like me and spend time trying to remember the right words to type in on the less common configurations, this is a great tool to quickly get you to the "Oh, yeah! Now I remember." ...more info
  • CCNA Portable Command Guide
    This is certainly a good value. Explicit commands that are used for basic configurations. Worth the investment if you don't normally use these commands every day, or already have them memorized....more info

  • good book which adds additional info
    I found the book extremely handy with the upcoming CCNA exam. If you're looking for some shortcuts and extra info I would recommend this book....more info
  • Awesome guide.
    This little book is what every CCNA should own! It is a great reference not only for exam study but while on the job. I keep one at my desk when I need to look up a command. Its small size lends itself to carrying around.

    I like the fact that it gives full configuration examples and also makes mention of optional commands for the configuation. It can be quite tedious to use the Cisco website and this book fills a much needed void....more info
  • Portable command guide
    This portable command guide is a must for anyone working with CISCO switches and routers. I used this command guide as part of my study for the CCNA, but have also found this book an excellent referral for everyday work. This guide describes everything from configuring a switch at start up to setting up both standard and extended access lists. Routing protocols are also covered, showing you the actual commands required.

  • Great book for a complilation of all Cisco commands
    I'm currently preparing for my CCNA and this book is really good to review everything from simple configuration to complex ones.
    The "Tips" in each chapter are really well done.

    Ofcourse this cannot be your only source for preparing for the CCNA but its worth every penny and makes a great addition to your Cisco book collection....more info
  • Concise and well organized
    CCNA Portable Command Guide (2nd Edition) (Self-Study Guide)
    I am new to Cisco devices and have a a fair amount of them in my new job. This book is great since it balances small size with great information. If you want to do something you just look at the table of contents and pick router, switch, etc. Then you go to that section and it tells you how to perform commands on the device and what ones you need to use. Perfect for the new person or the experienced one that needs help remembering all the commands and there are a lot. I would recommend this book....more info
