CCNP(R): Cisco Internetwork Troubleshooting Study Guide (642-831)
Arthur Pfund, et al

December 5, 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
CCNP: Cisco Internetwork Troubleshooting Study Guide offers a comprehensive study of the topic but relies on practical experience as well. The book covers all of the stated CIT objectives, beginning with a theoretical discussion of troubleshooting methodology and generic troubleshooting tools followed by coverage of Cisco's relevant tools and commands. Then troubleshooting is tackled for TCP/IP, Novell, ISDN, AppleTalk, and other environments.

Like other study guides in this Sybex series, the CIT Study Guide includes chapter review questions and clearly states the CIT objectives covered in each section. However, laboratory exercises for troubleshooting are difficult to construct and are less frequent in this installment. A companion CD-ROM includes the EdgeTest CIT software with 200 questions and a trial copy of Visio...

Book Review
It's not perfect, and using the CCNA Virtual Test Center as your sole study guide for the CCNA exam would be foolish--but as the finishing touch to a study plan, it's a good value for the money. The Test Center is a test engine with well over 300 sample questions. But there's only one question that you should ask when you're evaluating testing software--namely, how good are the questions?

I'm pleased to note that most of them are close to what you can expect to see on the final exam, and there are no filler "idiot questions" to waste your time. There is a nice mix of command-line questions ("You have been asked to change the name of a VLAN on a Catalyst 1900 Series Switch; which command do you use?") and general technology questions ("How does the operation of VTP differ when a switch is configured for Transparent...
