  1. Well we can sure say this. He is an author of a book (New
    CCNA 640-801) that has so many freakin errors it will
    absolutely force people to buy another for test study.
    What really shows his apathy for his readers is when they
    send many emails to him requesting errata or for him to
    please contact the publisher to send out errata on the
    book, he can't take a few minutes out of his busy schedule
    to answer the emails like other respectable authors do.
    Funny how he doesn't know how to make a one time post as
    well. But he sure has time to ask anyone for cheap labor
    on test writing so that he can grope the profits like the
    rest of corporate america. Looser!

    Thank you for that information.
    I went to the web site and found that others agreed with your
    I plan to go for CCNA one of these days after I get MCSD and I am looking
    for a good study book on the subject so you saved me from wasting my money
    but more importantly my time.

    One of the reviewers also mentioned that if you wanted to get the full
    benefit from the
    book you had to pay to log on to some web site to use a simulator.
    I didn't see that mentioned in the author's comment either.

    I know that this is a side issue, not related to MCSD but does anyone
    know of a good study book for CCNA.

    Thank you,

    Hey Charlie,
    Todd Lammle's new book is fantastic and it is now
    published. I usually get my books via but
    they do not have these books at least as of today. Hey
    Charlie, email me "" if you want some
    very good information regarding the CCNA test. I am a CCNA.

    Well I just want to add to this as well. I sent email to
    the author and did not get a response.. till today. He
    has taken it on himself to get the errata for his book on
    the McGraw-Hils website by this coming Monday. So this is
    a good thing since there are only a few 801 books out
