ONLY INFORMATION ON WHAT CCNA IS -waste of time.

this is a 4 hour book on why you should take the exam and what to prepare for - literally informative only if you don't know what the exam or certification is. No networking/routing substance is included in this book

Don't bother

Most of this is a sales pitch for Cisco and CCNA certification. There are a couple chapters explaining exam types, versions and recertification. There is not one study topic in here.

Nothing useful.

LITERALLY just tells you about Cisco and the CCNA exam. No "educational" material at all.

Heard of Cisco? Know the CCNA exam exists? Good, you now know everything pertinent in this book.

Deceptively Advertised!

Will not teach you switching and routing material. Just drivlles endlessly on about Cisco's history and the different types of certifications. those exams are HARD esp. for beginners. How this got the rating and recommendations that it did is baffling. audible needs to do better on assessing its books' standings. this shouldn't be on top of the list. what a waste of my time and money. Very disappointed. Do not buy if you're serious!
