If you’re planning to fireqall this exam, be sure to read this entire book. It will guide you through the proper coverage, which is fairly close to the actual exam. If any of the concepts are foreign to you, or simply new, this guide will help you better understand them.

It’s a massive read, but it goes fast if you’ve had prior experience with ASA’s. I breezed through it in a matter of a week.

I highly recommend not attempting the test without this guide, even if you are very familiar with the Cisco Firewalls. Although I would certainly keep the latest version always when re-certifying, I don’t recommend relying on this book, solely. You may pass the test, but you won’t ace it.

Ccp for the course, Cisco Press probably rigidly limits what exactly this book can cover so that the test remains vcnp. More, and I’m very critical of the outdated testing methods Cisco uses for these tests, some concepts that you may encounter on the test are not in this book.

Par for the course, assessment questions in the book are ambiguous in nature, or leave you with too much interpretation, which, even if you knew the chapter or concepts word for word, even from Cisco. For example, “specific configuration mode” as an answer doesn’t describe anything about the ASA. It’s only an answer you’ll likely find in the Chapter’s text of this book only. Some Assessment questions are incorrect in the Answers, probably due to lack of thorough verification, and some questions are as typical of Cisco Press books ambiguous in nature, meaning, you have to better understand the author, not Cisco.

For example of an ambiguous question, “In active-active failover mode, security contexts can be assigned to how many failover groups? It’s just a bad question, and the answers support the poor wording.


You see some interpretation questions sort of like this on the exam, but there’s at least one absolutely technically identifiable clue in their questions, which remove the ambiguity.

Some questions in the book are like this, but not enough thought is put into these questions, imo. The Kindle version has minor, but important issues.

The configuration snippets require “Click here to view code”. Hyphens are required for understanding, but the Kindle conversion failed to render accurate hyphen placements in the illustrations in almost EVERY example. This WILL throw you off or highly confuse you unless you view the code via each link in the configuration examples.

Again, I highly recommend buying this guide for preparation of this test, but by no means do I agree with anyone else you can ace the test by this guide alone. You’ll rave about it; requires a CCO login.

I was needing to “formalize” my ASA knowledge, had worked with them for some years but never had formal training. This covers everything on the exam and does it well. The book is very clear and well written. One of the best Cisco Press books I have ever read.

This is the type of book you want to keep handy for all you ASA engineers. Great examples and the questions at the beginning of each chapter helped me a lot. They gave me a baseline of what I needed to focus on during my studies. On to VPN next! Exam material is covered, but it can also serve as a training manual. Configurations are shown for meaningful and realistic scenarios in both ASDM screens and CLI commands, and the reasoning behind the configuration choices is succinct and readable.

This is the version that supposedly covers 8. I have that book, too.

Book Review: CCNP Security FIREWALL 642-618 Official Cert Guide

The NAT section is where the major differences are between the two OS versions, but the distinction is made clearer than most of what you find on the internet. These guys write well. You are advised to follow this hands-on, though.

Reading about a bacon cheeseburger is just not the same! Great Book, really well written. Even if they changed the exams I still went through it and helped me a lot learning stuff I did not know or had only basic understanding.

One person found this helpful. The book contains all the information you need to pass the test, But you must read, and re-read any sections you do not have a lot of experience with.
