HASH(0xa67e5648) out of 5 stars Great Book, but the Cert is History Aug. 31 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is great. I need to learn about Cisco ASA's and this is just the right book for that. Even though it's a CCNP-level cert, the book doesn't start out expecting much more than a basic understanding of IOS. I didn't get very far in this one yet. Why? Because it turns out that this particular cert has been discontinued by Cisco. The cert is gone, but the technology covered here is essential for any CCNA. I will definitely get back to this book, and I'm likely to buy the CCNP VPN book for the same reasons.
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.

HASH(0xa83127bc) out of 5 stars Great book for CCNP Security Firewall exam Oct. 20 2011
By Drake - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book about a week ago from another source.

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!
