Coming into this course (Networking I) I had no knowledge about networking. The first few chapters laid the foundations, LANs, WANs, are with both clarity and efficiency. Each concept was explained visually, with flowcharts and diagrams. It had just enough examples so that I was able to absorb the knowledge, just enough so that this information didn't overwhelm me.
In the seminar prior to this course, our teacher warned us about subnetting, how it was challenging to alot of people and whatnot. This book, provided the step-by-step instructions that made it seem easy. Each concept is paired with several examples and exercises, along with solutions and explanations. It provided the theory as well as the intuition (extremely rare to find in a textbook) behind subnetting that made it all seem natural.
One thing that you may need to watch out for is that although this includes a DVD, it does not include the simulator software I had to pay for separately, which was about 70 dollars.
2/18/2014, I am editing my original review: I passed my CCENT exam in January, 2014. One small let down about this book was that it did not prepare me for everything on the ICND 100-101 exam and also caused me to focus on areas of little or no importance. I spent a lot of time cramming on IPV6 and did not encounter a single question about IPV6 on the CCENT exam (I don't care that much because I expect to encounter it on the ICND 200-101 exam). Also, I DID encounter complex troubleshooting simlets about Frame Relay, OSPF, and EIGRP (OSPF areas, neighbors, matching ASNs, matching timers, etc). I still feel this is a very good book to help prepare for the exam, but if you are using this book to prepare for the CCENT, also do some extra research on OSPF, EIGRP, and Frame Relay. Know how to find imformation about them without using the show version or show running-config commands. They like to take those away from you from time to time.
I do want to point out that the activation code for the DVD is not at all obvious to find if you don't know where to look. In the DVD sleave itself is a slip of paper, and on it is the activation code. I guess I missed it when I initially took out the DVD because I didn't know that slip of paper was important, but it definitely is, that's how you get access to the practice exams.
Anyway, the book is fine. If you're studying for the certifications, you probably need it, so you should probably get it.
