The CCNA Exam Guide prepares you to pass the CCNA exam. It covers all necessary objectives for the exam. The tutorial text is strictly exam-related and flows with minimal interruption. Key concepts are the only "notes" set apart from the text by special formatting. This series is designed to be used either with or without outside instruction. To help you fully understand the topic, visual cues are used liberally throughout the book: Diagrams put concepts into a visual form that aids in retaining and comprehending, and figures confirm your understanding of procedures. This book also provides additional information, such as addresses for on-line help and supplemental sample tests, testing locations, test-taking tips and strategies, and emotional preparation.
