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

The CCNP Flash Cards and Exam Practice Pack (CCNP Self-Study) provides final-stage preparation tools for the new CCNP exams announced by Cisco Systems in April 2003. These exams, 642-801 BSCI, 642-811 BCMSN, 642-821 BCRAN, and 642-831 CIT, have all been rewritten with new topical coverage updated to teach networking professionals what they need to know to manage their networks. The elements of this title have been created to provide comprehensive coverage of the new topics in all four exams.
As a final preparation tool for the four CCNP exams, this product complements official Cisco curriculum, other books, and other exam preparatory material. It marries three uniquely successful and complementary methods of late-stage test preparation. The Pack contains a testing engine with more than 800 questions, including simulation based questions. The flash cards come in a printed format, and can also be downloaded to PC, Windows Pocket PC, and Palm OS via the included CD-ROM for ultimate portability. Fact-filled Study Sheets allow readers to review important exam topics, organized by exam.
