CCNP certification covers an immense array of technologies: IP, IGRP, IPX, route redistribution and summarization, bridging, OSPF, VLSM, BGP, frame relay, ISDN, ISL, DDR, PSTN, PPD, VLANs, Ethernet... Whew, it’s exhausting just to talk about it. But CCNP Complete Study Guide addresses all that, and more.
That’s four exams worth of material: scalable Cisco internetworking (642-801), multilayered switched networks (642-811), remote access (642-821), and troubleshooting (642-831). It takes a big book to cover it all. At 1380 pages, this book is certainly big. But it’s also polished, well written, and packed with examples and diagrams.
You won’t just study from it: You’ll rely on it heavily at work. But when you are prepping, you’ll appreciate its comprehensive study tools: pre-assessment tests, simulated exams, and 600-plus flashcard Q&As. (And the PDF e-copy, for when you’d rather not carry something quite so big!) Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only
