A few people have heard about a study sheet I put together, well here it is. It is confined to one page, so it isn't a learn from scratch tool, but when it comes to preparing for the test it is very helpful.
I put this guide together while preparing for my CWAP, and I was fortunate enough to pass it the first time.
I am always open to comments and suggestions. I am by no means a document creation expert so it may look a bit funny. I am very interested in knowing what you think. Thanks!
If you want to print it, you will need a high resolution color printer for it to look good.
P.S. There is one on the way for Control and Data frames if anyone is interested.
Thank you. This looks very helpful. I'm looking forward to your other study sheets.
Thanks GTHill, anything you can post or suggest that aids us is MUCH appreciated. I personally am struggling with CWAP and am learning from all relevant sources. I have read in and out of my war torn CWAP book, Matthew Gast's 2nd Ed, the IEEE 802.11 2nd Ed. , numerous white papers from numerous sources and experts . If you saw them (books), you'd say" Who let the dawgs out, Though I haven't master it,I am determined!
Again thank you for your study tips, echoing, moe looking forward to your other study sheets.
If first you don't succeed, defer, retry... your backoff algorithm/ contention window has plenty of time left.
GTHILL those are awesome, I was considering doing something like that but you beat me to it. Great job. I did post somehting like what you have to help me pass the CWAP last January, but for the PHY. To reciprocate here are the links:
Can you post all of your sheets?
Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. I still have some work to do on the other sheets, so I won't be posting them for a bit. Nice work on the other sheets jsicuran. My eventual plan is to create an entire 802.11 poster, but that is still a ways off. Anyway.. thanks again!
No probs GTHill, actually fluk networks has a poster and after going through the CWAP you now have the knowledge to see that there are a couple of errors on their poster.
you can get the poster at www.flukenetworks.com/wireless
