CCNP Cisco Networking Academy Program : Semester Five Companion Guide, Advanced Routing
Authorized Companion for the Cisco Networking Academy ProgramComprehensive Lab Exercises at the end of each chapter lead you through important configuration concepts step by step to prepare you for CCNP certification and advanced study. Each Lab Exercise conforms to the standard lab pack that Cisco requires CCNP Academy sites to maintain. Labs are optimally configured in a three-router pod to maximize your time in the lab and prevent wear and tear on the equipment. Marginal Notes, Warnings, and Tech Notes highlight important information, alert you to configuration pitfalls, and offer background information on related topics and real-world implementation issues. Authorized Companion for the Cisco Networking Academy Program Chapter Summaries, Review Questions, and Lab Questions reinforce concepts and help you evaluate your understanding before moving on to new material. Answers to Review Questions are found in the appendixes, along with a glossary of key terms used throughout the book.CCNP Cisco Networking Academy Program: Semester Five Companion Guide, Advanced Routing completes your learning experience by providing instructional material that builds upon the most current Cisco Networking Academy Program online curriculum. This robust body of content provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to pass the CCNP Routing Exam and further your career opportunities in computer networking.Author and Academy instructor Mark McGregor combines personal Cisco Networking Academy Program teaching experience with real-world applications to produce dynamic in-depth learning.
