"Another great book for my technical reference libr" - by lovecamping on 06-SEP-2012
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
My use of this book was more for a technical reference than for certification exam prep. I needed to greatly enhance my knowledge of VPN protocols especially in the area of the SSL VPN protocol.  As a Cisco CCNA student I have become very comfortable with the format of the Cisco cert books and I usually consider these first. This book provided the VPN technologies, protocols and design considerations that I was looking for. It presented the material in an easy to follow, concise, clear format similar to what I have found in many other Cisco Cert Guides.

This cert guide covers clientless remote-access VPN, the Cisco AnyConnect Remote-access VPN, Cisco IPsec Remote-access client, Cisco Easy VPN, and Cisco IPsec site-to-site VPN solutions in great detail. It also covers the Cisco Secure Desktop.

As expected, the material in this book is very specific to the Cisco ASA family of appliances. The book contains many screen shots and command line examples which are always very helpful.  I was also pleased to find that I can also apply the knowledge gained from this book to non-Cisco appliances as well.

If you are using this book as a study guide, the Pearson Cert Practice Test Engine included on the CD is a great tool to use. The CD also contains memory tables which I have found to be very useful during my exam prep. This study guide also includes access to a free online edition for 45 days through Safari Books online. If you purchase the Premium edition of this book, you will have access to 2 additional exams and an ebook version of this guide.

This book is a valuable tool in my toolkit.
