New CCNA exams, which books?


I need to buy some new books for the new CCNA exams, but I'm not sure which to pick.

Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching 200-120 Official Cert Guide Library has two editions a green academic edition and a blueish edition. Are both 1 big book or do they contain two smaller books? Is it suitable to use these books for the ICDN 1 and 2 exams, or would you suggest buying the books per exam?

Kind regards,

Hey Tom, you might want to check out the free resources at 100Questions.

CISCO 640-822 CCENT (100 Questions) is the Cisco Certified Networking Entry Technician exam, and covers the skills required for entry-level network support positions, and is the starting point for many networking careers. CCENT is the first step towards CCNA, and our exam volume prepares you to ace your exam.

CISCO CCNA Exam (100 Questions), or the Cisco Certified Network Associate validates the ability to install, configure, operate and troubleshoot medium-sized routed and switched networks. This includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills.

The other good thing is that you can test your Cisco knowledge and prepare for the exam via the exam library, which contains free-to-try exam questions. The Cisco reference section could be accessed from the drop-down menu, and because the portal covers several topics, it could be confusing initially due to the enormous amount of data, but if you spend some time navigating the contents you might be well-rewarded!

I hope this is not against the rules.

I have Todd Lammle, very good for CCNA. All exams.

For the CCNP you will need more books than Lammle. I think.

Good luck.
