Indispensable as both a router configuration guide and a preparation tool for the CCNP Routing exam, CCNP Practical Studies: Routing will prepare you for the exam and give you the hands-on experience toapply your knowledge on the job. CCNP Practical Studies: Routing provides you with routing and configuration information from IP basics to advanced routing concepts and protocols, such as BGP and IS-IS. Each chapter focuses on a specific routing technology or protocol with a battery of scenarios and practical exercises that you can either configure using your home, work, or remote-access lab equipmentor follow along by reviewing the book’s example tasks. The five lab scenarios in each chapter serve to challenge your understanding of the chapter topics and measure your aptitude as a CCNP candidate, while providing concrete examples of the challenges faced in real-world configuration. CCNP Practical Studies: Routing provides you with practical information on all of the important conceptscentral to the CCNP Routing exam, including basic and advanced BGP and OSPF, EIGRP, route reflectors, IP routing principles, and ISIS. Begin with basic lab scenarios that cover displaying and analyzing IP routing tables and using show and debug commands. Then graduate to more advanced lab scenarios, such as routing between a classful and a classless network; configuring VLSM; and working with multihomedBGP and connections to ISPs. Lab scenarios at the end of the book take you step-by-step through route optimization and redistribution. This book also contains a bonus CCIE(r)-level lab, which takes you beyond the professional level labs and onto the next step in becoming a hands-on routing expert. Whether you are seeking practical knowledge to enhance your preparation for the CCNP Routing exam oryou are a newly minted CCNP looking for hands-on experience to hone your on-the-job skills, CCNP Practical Studies: Routing has what you need to take your practical routing skills to
the next level. This book is part of the Cisco Press Practical Studies Series, which offers readers a means to apply theoretical knowledge through hands-on lab scenarios. This unique approach enables readersto practice and hone their internetworking skills while preparing for Cisco certification exams.
