    If you are somewhat new to security, especially in the Cisco world, this book is the book for you and deserves 5 stars.

    This kit does a great job on going over much of the Cisco security portfolio. It goes over the Cisco firewalls, AAA, NAC solutions, IPS, MARS, VPNs, etc. It gives some basic configurations for most of these.
