Product Reviews

Average Rating: 3.5 stars (8) see all reviews

4 stars Pretty Good, Especially for ASDM acess
8/28/2019 8:18:44 PM - Amanda - Brunswick, OH US

I failed the CCNA Security on the first try but passed on the second. The boson practice exam won't get ya over the first hoop but its still good to have. The CCNA Security is just very broad and Cisco doesn't cover some topics on the Exam PDF. Not Bosons fault. Be sure to review Cisco-specific devices like ISE, WSA, etc.

1 star Cisco is not backing up...
2/11/2019 2:17:35 PM - Jeffrey - Milton, VT US

Many of the question in Boson are not in any Cisco material I have, and I have every book Cisco sells on Security. I've been allow to study at work for the last 5 months 8 hours a day. I purchased this due ot the fact Im having issue reading the questions because Cisco has a way of obscuring what you read in the books. Like Media data flow for PACKET FLOW in Stateful inspection. I guess this makes you a better tech, not makes Cisco richer that's all.
It's like Boson is making up their own Cisco CCNA Security material. I purchased this in hopes of helping pass the exam, which I have taking twice. I haven't seen but 2-3 question on the 2 exam's I took.
This Boson goes back to ASA 8.2, known fact no question on this stuff. I would say save your 99.00 and do like I, study harder on the fine print. Many Cisco question are fringe questions, CLI command based, I.E what is the result of this CLI command string etc. and be ready for the What the IPS/IDS WON'T do.

2 stars Would not recommend

High quality material, as always from Boson.

But it does not cover the topics seen on the actual 210-260 exam.

5 stars Way Better than the OCG books
8/26/2017 11:06:06 AM - Chuck - Jessup, MD US

If you are going for the CCNA Sec exam, every book out there will not help you. Read them yes for a foundation but GET exam max for 210-260 and the practice labs and read all the material from the exam links from the questions. I have really had it with the OCG cert books which do not prepare you at all for the cert exams so don't believe the reviews for them on amazon. Boson is 50 x better.

2 stars I have attempted the Exam today.
7/19/2017 7:24:21 AM - Mohammed Kasheef - Al Riyadh, SA

The material cover with respect to the Actual Exam has partial appearance.
