Hello.. I passed the CCNA recently and wanted to get the Wireless specialist but can't find any info how to go about it - Cisco press doesn't have the exam guides for these apparently - or am I looking at the wrong places... Thanks in advance

I haven't looked in the last year or so, but the Cisco Press books for Wireless pretty much suck (in a word). They aren't very helpful for the exams, and were too old / out-of-date to be practical references.


IMO, the best general guide / reference is the Planet 3 book for Certified Wireless Network Associate (CWNA) that is published by Osborne.


They have other more advanced books (CWAP, CWSP), all of them are excellent study guides for their respective (non-vendor-specific) tests, and are also useful for reference later when you start forgetting the small details.


Check 'em out, most book stores that have tech books are likely to have 'em.


Good Luck

Scott
