Tons of lab time, really. Every concept laid out in the books below were set up in a Netsim lab below to better understand. While I have very little practical experience doing these things, I hoped that the lab time would compensate for some of it. I also read the books a few times over because some of the concepts are very complex BGP still kinda blows my mind. The blueprint was also rather handy, although a tad broad at times. The difference is in the exam type.
The Troubleshoot exam, on the other hand, is all about applying that knowledge to fix issues with a known network topology. I spent about a week memorizing the topology, similar to knowing your own network layout in your work or for a client, so that I could more easily solve issues during the exam. The format of Troubleshoot is a series of trouble tickets that were submitted by a user with an issue, and you use show and ping commands to isolate the problem.
Taking the exam while Route and Switch were fresh in my mind was part of the strategy. My main resource for the exam was this site: Contains pretty much anything you can think of as it relates to routing, and is really cheap if you get the Kindle version. I had a lot of trouble reading through this book because I found the material so boring, and the format is very dry.
Contains pretty much anything you can think of as it relates to switching, and is really cheap if you get the Kindle version. I enjoyed this book a tad more, but then again I find switching more interesting than routing. Boson Network Simulator Boson: In addition to the resources above, I also snagged a Cisco switch to work on a physical switch. I mainly used it to practice switch commands by hooking the console cable up to an ESXi host and passing it through to a VM.
Way to go, Chris. Virtualization today pretty much requires a solid grasp of principles in so many areas: Obviously, Layer 2 is king in the virtualized data center, but with the requirements of geographically dispersed, virtualized data centers, perhaps those routing skills will come in handy! If you're considering the purchase, though, note that the book is filled with diagrams and screenshots that are simply illegible on a standard kindle screen, and are unpleasant to view even on a DX.
They look ok on kindle for PC, but I hate that app so use it as little as possible page scrolling on a PC is antihuman. I read the book twice, went through the labs twice, and scored in the 's on the test. I did use some free practice tests and other labs I found online to study with, but overall a very strong book for the CCNP Switch test.
The Cisco CCNP SWITCH exam is one of three exams you must pass on your path towards becoming a CCNP. The CCNP SWITCH exam will not only test you . domaine-solitude.com =sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=&sr=&keywords=sw.
My favorite thing about the book is that the authors didn't overly explain everything and add in a bunch of useless information when talking about topics that won't be on the test. This makes it easier to focus on the core material and gives more time for focusing on the labs. You will get a lot out of it.
Also, I would highly recommend you get this in physical form and not Kindle. One person found this helpful. It is very important that you remember. You can't escape it's grasp, once you think they are done saying the word "important" it shows up again. Every time I came up on this word I broke concentration.
Besides the over use of that word, I found this book to be very informative. Plenty of detail, probably to much at times. The Labs at the end are great. This was my primary book along with a few video resources my work provided.
Watched the videos first and then proceeded to the book. Great good, very easy to read and I like how you learn more than you really necessarily need without going too off topic. It does it in a way that broadens your knowledge and wants you to read more. I wish I would of read this before I did the Cisco Press books, amazed at how poorly they are written. I think this book is great I have the Cisco press book but after the first 2 chapters I didn't like they way they where covering the info.
I heard that this book was better and I would have to say I would agree. The only thing is that it has alot of info that is not covered which could be a good thing if you are taking your time but if you are in a hurry then this will make things more difficult. I have the troubleshoot and route as well and will use them both for the next two tests. Good Luck with your studies. Another great book by Paul and his team. Easy to read and understand.
