Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Another in Cisco's Certification and Training series, Advanced Cisco Router Configuration picks up where Introduction to Cisco Router Configuration leaves off. Like its sister publication, this book is intended to accompany a like-named Cisco class and provides chapter-ending tests as well as a profusion of diagrams, configuration commands, charts, and such.

However, this volume's six sections tackle more complex topics with an emphasis on network traffic and connectivity issues. Instead of basic internetworking, scalability--particularly in terms of the router--is the idea driving these pages. By this, editor Laura Chappell simply means building a network that is able to expand, while requiring only minor interventions and additions. This leads to another strength of the book: underlying concepts are effectively outlined in the introductory chapter of each section, thereby establishing a context for the remainder of the discussion.

After getting the notion of scalability out of the way, the authors clearly discuss traffic congestion and ways to manage and solve it on Internet Protocol (IP) and Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) networks. They follow with an explanation of which protocol to deploy, be it Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), or Routing Information Protocol (RIP). Also covered is dialup connectivity for remote users and for wide-area connections, as well as how to bridge nonrouted services, such as Data Link Switching. Like many Cisco books, this one wraps up with seven impressive appendices, including a top-notch glossary.--Sarah L. Roberts-Witt

From the Back Cover

Advanced Cisco Router Configuration presents advanced methods and configurations for effective LAN and WAN traffic management. You'll examine a broad range of technical details on routing protocols, configurations, access methods, security, and traffic control. Detailed advice is provided on dial-up connectivity, managing network traffic and access, configuring scalable routing protocols, and integrating non-routed services. As you work through the text, you'll gain valuable insight into effective ways to harness the power of internetworking devices and understand how proper configurations lead to enhanced network longevity and performance.

I used many resources to pass the ACRC Exam. This text stands out as the best by far. I found myself going back to it again and again. If you have a network you can work on and this book by your side, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't pass the test on the first try (but you MUST know this book inside and out).

This book does cover all of the objectives presented. The format and gramatical errors destroy most of benefits. I used this book and failed the ACRC exam 640-403. The ACRC Exam Certification Guide, author: Clare Gough-CCIE #2893 is a much better book. The questions are more difficult, the CD that accompanies the book is harder than the actual test. I couldn't answer some of them, even read Todd Lammle's book. I placed the three next to each other and thumbed through the chapters. The main difference is the ACRC Exam Guide has several CCIE technical editors who are precise. This is the best $60.00 bucks I've spent since the ICRC guide by Laura Chappel. I even noticed that some of the questions presented in this book were similar to the CCIE Written Examination.

This Book Follows the official course chapter for chapter, but adds more detail than the course material. There is no better way to learn the curricullum (except in conjuction with hands-on). The typos are relatively minor and there are no grossly misleading errors. The only element it lacks is more comprehensive end of chapter quizzes to prepare for the exam. A good supplement is the ACRC Exam Certification Guide by Cisco Press. For success on the exam and in your career, this book is a great asset.

I'm not sure if I have an older revision, or if the people giving it 5 stars are... well... asleep at the keyboard. While, yes, it does cover 90% of the ACRC exam, there are MANY errors and typos (checked against CCO). After finding the errors, I passed the exam with an 850... before finding the errors, by relying on this book, I scored 727. My suggestion... if ANYTHING looks wrong, check it with CCO... or check EVERYTHING with CCO to be on the safe side.

Format: Textbook Binding
After passed ACRC exam on the first shot, I would give this book a 5 stars if there were not so many errors. It covers right topics but there are just too many errors everywhere. I agree that it seems no editor at all and they just cut-and-paste from CCO (There are places they even pasted to the wrong location!) It's really painful to read this book especially at first time. First, you need to GUESS what it's trying to say. Then you have to VERIFY whether it says is correct or not.
This is what they say at the preface of the book: "...Each book is crafted with care and precision..." But it doesn't seem true to me!

Format: Textbook Binding
The concepts of this book are great - it explains the steps the router takes to accomplish a task. Unfortunately, the implementation isn't what I expected. Perfect example is setting up NAT. This book explains everything about how nat works, what it does and how it does it, but it doesn't give the OS commands to implement it! For the price, I would think that could be included.

Format: Textbook Binding
Whether or not you pursue the CCNP certification router configuration is something that is a key to ensuring that your network is safe from the outside and the safety of the data is a prime concern of any network administrator.

This 635 page guide is a great addition to my technical library with the information presented I was able to enhance my router knowledge for both network and training purposes. The book is broken into five parts with Part 1 covering the overview the scalable Internetwork.

Part 2 delves into the topics of managing traffic, network congestion, setting up IP access lists, IPX/SPX and SAP access lists and setting up queuing to take care of traffic problems. Part 3 covers VLSM, Classless and Classful subletting, OSPF in both single and multiple areas, EIGRP and BGP protocols.

Part 4 is the Dial-Up section with topics like WAN encapsulations, ISDN, DDR, PPP and HDLC. Finally part 5 the Non-Routing section where you learn about bridging techniques like source-routing, transparent and translational. The book is filled with actual examples of the code to make the understanding easier. Overall an excellent buy for the money.

I believe this is the best Cisco book on the market. It is readable, easy to understand and well written. The chapters follow on from one another while at the same time it is easy to go in and read and understand a specific chapter.
I have read about OSPF, for example, in a number of books. This book provides the best explanation and examples.
ACRC is the first exam I plan to sit and this book has given me a great deal of confidence. The only down point is that the tests at the end of each chapter are good, but in short supply. I would consider purchasing another test book as well as this, like the Syngress Practice Exams one which covers all CCNP exams.
