Command Reference is just that... it's just the commands. It doesn't give you (much) of a context.
I haven't worked with the Self Study Guide series personally, but overall, I wouldn't limit myself
in terms of reference / study material -- ie. if you can afford it, get the full NA study and lab books
from Cisco Press.

where can I acquire Cisco IOS images I've heard that the images are free for the access points and switches? I assume I can purchase a support contact to get the images but does that give me access to all router images or is it just for that one specific model?
IIRC, full IOS images for AP and switches still fall under smartnet and are SPECIFIC to what is put
under your CCO ID. "Free" switch software, if that, wouldn't be likely unless it were a SMALL
BUSINESS series device.
