Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
You won't find Cisco routing explained more concisely or precisely. In barely 300 pages packed with diagrams and sample IOS commands, Robert Myhre reviews everything Cisco's CCNP routing exam expects of you -- from basic routing concepts through EIGRP, and beyond. You'll find a thorough chapter on IP address management (from NAT to CIDR), and detailed coverage of OSPF and BGP (with chapters focused specifically on OSPF and BGP scalability). You'll also find excellent coverage of routing optimization, from route redistribution to policy maps. This book is well written, with plenty of real-world context. In his "other life," Robert Myhre doesn't just teach and write about Cisco. He's a professional network consultant, too -- and it shows.
Booknews
A test preparation guide for Cisco's routing exam 640-503. Each chapter configures one or more routers, and concludes with practice questions on the subject. Coverage includes EIGRP operation, OSPF configuration for LANs and WANs, BGP techniques for connecting multiple independent networks into a cohesive network, maximizing BGP scalability with route reflectors and prefix lists, and advanced routing optimization through route distribution and policy mapping. ^ Annotation c.

PREFACE:

Introduction

"As an instructor in a classroom environment, I have learned there are two types of instructors. The first type, whether likable or not, is proud to show off his or her knowledge, but dislikes anyone learning anything. This type of instructor is more concerned with being better than everyone else. The second type of instructor, again whether likable or not, actually enjoys teaching. This person likes to share knowledge and does so in an informative way. I like to think of myself as the latter type." This is now my second book, and the previous paragraph was quoted from my introduction in the CCNA Certification book. I still feel that these statements are true, now more than ever. Another year has progressed and I still love teaching and learning, a very good combination.

The Cisco certifications are undergoing revision changes, and with those changes, the curriculum has changed. This book was written with the new CCNP 2.0 certifications in mind. As with the first book, I tried to maintain continuity. I feel that a certification book should also be a learning book, and so each chapter progressively (as much as possible anyway) discloses new information. Each chapter configures one or more routers in a logical way such that even without the use of a physical router to practice on, you should be able to see the results of all the actions.

Who This Book Is For

This book makes a quick jump into the advanced technologies needed for the CCNP certification test: Routing 2.0. I assume that the reader understands RIP and IGRP and can configure these two routing protocols and manipulate other facets of the Cisco IOS withoutmuch thought. I also assume the reader knows how to subnet, which means you can actually subnet, not use a calculator or have a chart memorized. As you continue into the Cisco career path, it is important to differentiate yourself from other certifications as well as other CCNPs by having a full understanding of TCP/IP, including subnetting.

If you feel weak in any of these areas, or feel you need a refresher while reading the book, I recommend my first book. Also, I have included part of my subnetting chapter from the first book as an appendix in this book.

How This Book Is Laid Out

The material required for the Routing 2.0 test includes many advanced features of the Cisco environment, most notably routing protocols. This test requires understanding the foundation of each of these protocols and how to configure them for basic connectivity. While I have tried to give more information about each topic than is required on the exam to further help the learning process, I had to restrict myself from placing more detailed information which could lead to confusion due to being overwhelmed. Please realize that any topic in this book could, and has been, a book in its own right.

With that said, this book follows the exam objectives as posted on the Cisco Web site. The only difference in order is that I placed EIGRP before OSPF. I feel it makes more sense to learn the advanced distance vector protocol first, because it builds upon the expected prerequisites for this book.

Although it may be possible to read Chapters 3, 4-5, or 6-7 in any order, it is not recommended. Again, the idea of this book is to provide progressive disclosure of information and skipping chapters may lead to missed information.

How to Obtain Cisco Certifications

To become a CCNP, you must pass either four tests or two tests. Three tests, Routing (640-503, for which this book was written), Switching (640-504), and Remote Access (640-505) can all be taken individually at $100 each, or can be combined into a large test called the Foundation (640-509) for $200. The other test is the Support test (640-506). Please refer to Cisco's Web site for update information (www.cisco.com/certifications).

To register for a test, call Sylvan Prometric at 1-800-204-EXAM (3926). You can pay via credit card, or have them bill you for the test. Note that you cannot actually take the test until it has been paid for, though. I would recommend calling Sylvan Prometric 24 hours in advance of your test for confirmation. Remember to bring two forms of ID, including a photo.

Other Cisco Certifications

The best way to get a feel for the different certifications is to visit Cisco's Web site at www.cisco.com and explore the training and certification paths. You will find there are many other certifications, including:

  • CCDA (Cisco Certified Design Associate) for designing small LANs and WANs.
  • CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) for building and configuring bigger and more complex LANs and WANs.
  • CCDP (Cisco Certified Design Professional) for designing even bigger and more complex LANs and WANs.
  • CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert), which is the biggest and probably most coveted certification in the industry. It requires a minimum of $1200 to pass the exams, and that doesn't include airfare.

It is also possible to specialize in technologies after gaining the CCNP certification. For instance, a person can be specialized in Security or Voice over IP. For more information, again refer to the Cisco Web site.
