Chapter 7 Question 8 (p252 & 859) - The key says the correct answers are A,E,F, but if you look at the text of the key it describes B,E,F. (A, the BSS should be the IBSS as stated in the key), and (B - ad hoc, is another name for the IBSS as stated in the Key). The letters in the key are wrong but the answers are correct if you read carefully.
Chapter 10 Question 10 (p385 & 866) - The key says the correct answers are A,B,C, but again if you read the text in the key the correct answer is D (Mode 3 - HT Mixed Mode) is the mode that allows association of a/g clients to an ac network. They marked all the wrong answers not the correct one (this is just sloppy editing).
Chapter 13 Question 3 (p530 & 873) - The key says B,D, which are correct but so is E. If you enable 40Mhz channels in the 5Ghz band you will absolutely get decreased range, the RSL is lower read any spec sheet. This is a factual oversight.
Chapter 13 Question 6 (p531 & 873) - The key says E "what type of applications will be used for the Wlan" as a question that needs to be asked during planning but then in the text goes on to describe all the other answers as well. So the correct answer is "F" All of the above. (Sloppy Editing again).
Chapter 14 (page 571). Ladders and/or forklifts may be needed to temporairly mount the access point to the ceiling. I have definitely done my share of unsafe acts that OSHA would not approve of but I never put it in print to new students as a recommendation. This is incredibly irresponsible. You are not allowed to use a forklift as a ladder or platform in any industrial situation and your compnay would be fined if you were caught doing it.
Chapter 14 Question 10 (p583 & 877) - The key says the correct answer is A,B,D, but in our reports we provide "C" a network topology map as well. Why would this be put in as something that would specifically would not provide. I would suggest that again it is sloppy thinking. What makes this wrong?
I really hope that the actual certification test was treated with much greater care given the cost of the exam itself and hope that the authors and publisher have the presence of mind to improve on this product in the future.
There are two versions of the CWNA Guide - the "official" CWNP one and this one from Sybex. Get THIS one. The authors were the authors of the original until CWNP started doing their own. This is the superior version.
This guide is over 1000 pages (1024 to be exact). It includes a lot of updated/revised information plus new info on 802.11ax.
If your are looking to prepare for the latest CWNA exactly (107) then get this.
If you want to learn about wireless, or have a responsibility for managing a wireless LAN, THIS guide is mandatory. Get it now!
Also, if you need something to kill a giant Bird Spider, stop a bullet, or just hold open a heavy metal door, this book'll be your Huckleberry.
Otherwise, this is a great book and I would definitely recommend it for people wanting to learn more about wireless networking.
