5. 101 Labs for the Cisco CCNP Exams by Farai Tafa, Paul Browning 

 

 101 Labs for the Cisco CCNP Exams

Knowing the theory alone is no longer enough to pass your Cisco CCNP exams. Cisco has recently made some very big changes to the way they test CCNP engineers. You are no longer required to pass four theory-only exams. Instead, you are faced with three very difficult exams, which concentrate on routing, switching, and troubleshooting knowledge and your hands-on ability. Some of the exams are now heavily weighted on practical elements, where you are faced with complicated multi-technology labs in which you must configure routing protocols and network services. You are also tested on troubleshooting scenarios where you must quickly and accurately diagnose and repair network faults on routers and switches. Of course, this is all while being timed in an exam that may feature up to 90% of hands-on scenarios and only 10% based on theory. 101 Labs for the Cisco CCNP exams has been designed to equip you with the skills and confidence you need to plan, configure, and troubleshoot a multitude of protocols and network services, which will enable you not only to pass your exams but also to use your skills as a network engineer in a job or as a freelance consultant. This guide has been compiled by two very experienced Cisco consultants and educators who know how hard it is to find the quality hands-on labs you need in order to study for and pass your exams effectively. The 101 labs include the following subjects: VLANs, STP, HSRP, and DTP Switch Security OSPF, EIGRP, and BGP (10 each) IPv6 Policy-based Routing Multicast 5 Multi-technology Labs 15 Troubleshooting Labs And much more
