with v3.1 of the CCNA 1 online curriculum of the Networking Academy. As a textbook, this
book provides a ready reference to explain the same networking concepts, technologies, proto-
cols, and devices as the online curriculum.
This book goes beyond previous editions of the Cisco Press Companion Guides by providing
many alternate explanations and examples as compared with the course. You can use the online
curriculum as directed by your instructor, and then also use this Companion Guide\u2019s alternate
examples to help solidify your understanding of all the topics.
First and foremost, by providing a fresh, complementary perspective on the online content, this
book helps you learn all the required materials of the first course in the Networking Academy
CCNA curriculum. As a secondary goal, individuals who do not always have Internet access
can use this text as a mobile replacement for the online curriculum. In those cases, you can read
the appropriate sections of this book, as directed by your instructor, and learn the same material
that appears in the online curriculum. Another secondary goal of this book is to serve as your
offline study material to help prepare you for the CCNA exam.
This book\u2019s main audience is anyone taking the first CCNA course of the Networking Academy
curriculum. Many Networking Academies use this textbook as a required tool in the course,
while other Networking Academies recommend the Companion Guides as an additional source
of study and practice materials.
