Cisco Press Authorized Self-Study Guide, 2nd Edition by Diane Teare: Just use this book exclusively. It has much more detail.
Cisco Press Official Exam Certification: I didn't think this book had enough detail to pass the exam.
Cisco Press CCDA Quick reference Sheets: If you read the Diane Teare book, the sheets are pretty useless.
My advice for someone starting their studying for this exam, I would recommend the Diane Teare book exclusively. Read it front to back particularly if you really want to know the material and if you're relatively new to the Cisco networking world.
