I have seen a lot of mix reviews of the Cisco Press books as far as getting study material for Cisco Certification Exams.
Here is a suggestion for all publishers. How about listing the official Exam Topics that each chapter covers. I have the Cisco Press ISCW book and found that there are some exam topics that are listed on Cisco's site, but there is no mention of those exam topics at all in the book. I have also had issues of registering the CD-ROM. The cd wants a 9 digit serial number and my book came with a 10 digit number. I also noticed that there is a newer edition of the ISCW book. The ISBN numbers are different & the publishing dates are a month apart. The table of contents does not have anything different from the original book. Does any one know the difference between these two editions?
