ICND1 Study Guide (Exam 100-101) with Boson NetSim Limited
by Bob Larson, Matt Walker
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media - Certification Press
Publish date: September 19, 2014, 2nd edition
Note: Neither the 1st edition nor used versions will work for this class. This book has a network simulator that requires registering online that will be used in the course for all assignments. There is no way to do the assignments without it. The full version of the simulator is $99-$149.
The books is consummer market book and should cost substantially less than most textbooks. Current Amazon price new is $27-33.07.
Note the Kindle versions and rental versions sometimes are often missing resources like Appendices and sample files, BUT we can generally work around that by me adding the materials to the Web site – so let me know if that happens. Make sure it comes with the simulator, I have no way around that.
