CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide 3.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is a glorified version of Cisco's CCIE written exam blueprint. Most of the switching subjects aren't given more than a page or two of recognition. Not even useful for a reference book. Save your time and money. Buy Caslow/Doyle books and use Cisco Documentation.

CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide ISBN: 1587200538 CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide by Anthony Bruno is a very good reference for those preparing for the CCIE Routing and Switching Qualification exam. The book is broken into the following chapters: 1. CCIE Certification, Test Preparation, and Using This Book 2. Networking Concepts Review 3. Cisco Equipment Operations 4. Local-Area Networks and LAN Switching 5. Wide-Area Networks 6. Internet Protocols 7. Static Routing and Distance Vector Routing Protocols 8. IP Link-State Routing Protocols 9. Border Gateway Protocol 10. Administrative Distance, Access Lists, Route Manipulation, and IP Multicast 11. Traffic Management 12. Multiservice Networking, IPX Networking, and Security The chapters structure of the book follow the exam blueprint very closely. The main thing to note with this book is that it was originally written for the previous version of the qualification exam. So every thing that is included in this book is not necessarily still on the new blueprint. The idea behind this guide is to provide key information pertaining to the items that are the exam blueprint. This guide was not meant to provide in depth detail on every topic. This is the main reason that the author included detailed lists of reference material at the end of each chapter. The content that was included was presented in a very clear, easy to follow format. Plenty of configuration examples were provided as well as debug and show command output. One chapter that was well put together was Chapter 8. It did a good job describing the features of both OSPF and IS-IS. It covered the deployment and basic configurations of both protocols. It did not cover the advanced features of the protocols but it did include references to other books (that a CCIE candidate should already have) and links to CCO pages. I was kind of disappointed with the material in chapter 12. Multiservice is fairly new to the Qualification exam so I am assuming that is the reason for the lack of information. Most topics just had a paragraph or two providing a definition of the service. Hopefully this will be corrected in the next version of the book. The book provides different methods of testing you knowledge. There are questions throughout the book that allows you to tell if you grasping the content. A CD is provided what contains testing software that simulates taking an actual exam. I found the testing engine easy to use and the question clearly written. There is no ¿one book¿ that can provide everything that you need in order to pass the qualification exam. I feel that Bruno did a good job putting this book together. As long as the reader has the idea that this book is just a tool to aid in learning the material, the reader should be able to get a lot out of it. If the reader is looking for a ¿one book¿ solution, this book is not for them.

The CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide (ISBN 1-58720-053-8) is the Cisco Press official exam guide for the written portion of the Cisco CCIE Routing and Switching Exam. The Guide was written by A. Anthony Bruno who is a CCIE (No. 2738). This guide was written in 2003 and addresses the current exam blueprint as given by Cisco for preparation of the written exam. This book focuses on outlining for the reader the objectives for the written exam and then proceeding to tackle each objective in an orderly and sensible method. The book begins by providing and description of the CCIE certification and then forms and outline of the objectives with an extremely handy reference to the appropriate chapter that addresses each objective. This helps during reviewing of the objectives by allowing the reader to quickly locate the subject in the book saving precious time that each CCIE candidate tends to appreciate more than anyone. Each chapter begins with a ¿Do I Know This Already¿ Quiz so that the reader can check on his knowledge of the chapter¿s material prior to reading the chapter. Performing well on the quiz will allow the reader to ¿skim¿ the chapter or skip it altogether (though I strongly recommend at least skimming the chapter as you never know what extra piece of information you might get that may help you on the test). This is another time saving idea that has been used successfully before in many other Cisco Press Exam Certification Guides. The Chapter then provides the material in a way that allows the reader to focus on items that are likely to be exam related. Each topic is presented with plenty of illustrations and examples so that the reader can get a good understanding of the topic and see how it might be used in real applications of the technology. Each example and illustration is clearly laid out and detailed. Each chapter continues with a summary of the chapter consisting of the most important and exam related items of the chapter. Finally, a Q & A section completes the chapter providing a bank of questions related to the chapter just completed. Answers and explanations to the question are provided in an Appendix section at the end of the book. Lastly, the book comes with companion CD-ROM with a practice test consisting of over 200 practice questions. This test is customizable to allow the reader to focus on those topics that require more attention. The CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide is a well written and concise book providing the reader with the necessary information to guide the reader to a successful attempt at the CCIE written exam. A. Anthony Bruno does a wonderful job in attacking each exam objective in enough detail and examples to provide the reader with the foundation required for this difficult test. I would rate this a definite 5 out of 5 and would recommend that anyone serious about taking the CCIE written exam add this valuable book to their library.

This book is excellent if you have broad, but in depth, networking knowledge. It's laid out well, with sample questions at the beginning of chapters, the relevent material, then a repeat of the questions with more added, and finally scenario-based questions. It's not meant to be an all-in-one book (that's impossible), so expect to buy other books as primers and references. Like the title states it's a certification guide, nothing more, so don't expect to come away with networking knowledge: you should already have it when you read this.

This book covers the most of the CCIE Written topics but does not cover detail enough to prepare for the real exam. If you are planning to take the CCIE exam by preparing with this book, you are most likely running for the failure. It is very shameful that they use the term ¡°Official preparation guide for CCIE Written exam¡± on the cover page. Save your money for something useful¡¦.
