I deal with Cisco ASA firewalls on a daily basis and have installed over 150 of them. This book is a great addition to your library. Although, I'm only on chapter 4 page 140. I can honestly say the book is VERY easy to read. Lots and lots of information in the book that will help you on your daily job, manage and maintain Cisco ASA firewalls. This book is also a great source of study for you to pass your CCNP Security Firewall exam. I'm currently pursuing this professional certification.
All in all, it's a great book, easy read, lots of examples, easy to understand, and a whole lot of info that will help you pass the exam.
5 stars for me! =)
Great job with this book!
I've read parts of four Cisco OCGs so far, and they're all extremely well-written, and easy to use for learning the technology whether your future includes a certification, or even if it doesn't. IMHO, these are the books to own to learn the technologies whether you care about certs or not.
