The new Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) exams are out, and they're significantly different from their predecessors in style and scope. CCNP Flash Cards and Exam Practice Pack helps CCNP candidates prepare for their exams by reviewing essential elements of routing and switching theory and practice. These cards--which are really pages bound in a paperback book--aren't much good at teaching their subject (though a series of Quick-Reference Sheets aren't bad for building on what you already know). They're meant for pure review, and for identifying knowledge gaps that will require an explanatory text or reference to fill. This book covers four CCNP exams, and includes about 500 questions and a 30-page reference section for each.
A trip through a section of this book involves looking at the right-hand page for questions--there are two of them on each such page--then flipping the page to see the corresponding answers on the other side. Most answers are reasonably well explained (readers get an idea of why the correct answer is what it is), but they do not include citations of authoritative Cisco documents or even other Cisco Press reference books. Also, some readers may prefer a more randomized sequence to this book's grouping by theme. For that, they will have to resort to the quiz software on the companion CD-ROM. --David Wall
