Is it legal to write and sell a book about one of Cisco's certificates?


I'm an IT Trainer. I want to help my students to pass Cisco exams. Is it legal to write a book to help them to understand a Cisco certificate (CCNA for example)?
Is it legal to write a book about some parts of the certificate? for example the CCNA commands.

I wont be quoting anything from the official certificate guide.

I'm sorry if I'm posting my question in the wrong section. I'm not sure where I should post it.

Thank you.

No one can answer this question for you here.  You need to speak to a copyright lawyer about your intents.  You don't even mention which country's laws you are worried about.

In essence, copyright has the concept of "fair use" when it comes to reproduction.

Thank you for your reply and

Thank you for your reply and the link.
I live in Egypt but I'm planning to sell my books on stores like Amazon and iBook. I tried to find a copyright lawyer but it seems these laws aren't a big deal where I live so there are no professional lawyers for these matters or at least as far as I searched.
