CCIE certification is the most difficult and most rewarding of the Cisco® certifications. Although the professional and financial benefits of a CCIE are excellent, attaining this level of certification takes years of experience, study, and effort. Serving a dual role of networking reference guide for configuring Cisco routers and preparation tool for the CCIE Lab Exams, CCIE Practical Studies, Volume I, is an ideal resource to help you achieve and earn the coveted CCIE designation.
CCIE Practical Studies, Volume I, provides you with the knowledge to assemble and configure all the necessary hardware and software components required to model complex, Cisco internetworks based on the OSI reference model-from Layer 1 on up. Each chapter focuses on one or more specific technologies or protocols and follows up with a battery of CCIE exam-like labs for you to configure that challenges your understanding of the chapter topics and measures your aptitude as a CCIE candidate. The final chapter of the book provides five CCIE "Simulation Labs." These labs not only test your knowledge but your speed as well-a crucial aspect of the new one-day format of the CCIE exam. Among the many resources you will need to study for the CCIE exam, you will find CCIE Practical Studies, Volume I, to be an indispensable preparation tool.
This book is part of the Cisco Press Practical Studies Series, which offers readers a means to apply the theoretical knowledge they have accumulated from other sources through hands-on lab scenarios for key networking technologies. This unique approach enables readers to practice and hone their internetworking skills while preparing for Cisco certification exams.
