Title: The Bryant Advantage CCNP ROUTE Study Guide

Author: Chris Bryant

Sold by: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.


This exam demands mastery of complex topics from route redistribution to BGP, multi-area OSPF to fine-tuning your routing with route maps and distribution maps, and everything in between!  It's a tough exam - in my opinion, second only to the CCIE written and lab exam in level of difficulty - and I'm going to help you master these topics and earn your CCNP with my crystal-clear, BS-free CCNP ROUTE Study Guide.  I've helped CCNP candidates just like you earn their NP for the past seven years -- let's hear from a few of them! 

"I successfully completed my CCNP requirements over the weekend. I would like to say a big thank you for your training materials. Your teachings are easy to follow. Every topic is fully covered and can be easily understood, especially the BGP section."  -- Adelard Banza, CCNP 

"I passed the Routing exam today at Cisco Live. Your material is great!"  -- Patricia Gonzales-Clark 

"Hi Chris, just wanted to let you know I just passed my CCNP ROUTE exam on my first attempt with a score of 953!  I found your teaching materials to be solid. You really presented these fundamental concepts in ways that were easy to understand. Now I really feel like I have the skills to contribute to an enterprise-level environment.  I would without hesitation recommend your teaching materials to anyone who is planning on becoming Cisco certified. Every penny I spent on your material was worth it. Thanks again!"  -- David Sun

Title:101 Labs for the Cisco CCNP Exams

Author: Farai Tafa, Paul Browning 

Publisher: Reality Press Ltd (August 21, 2011)

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
