CCNA Routing and Switching Practice and Study Guide: Exercises, Activities, and Scenarios to Prepare for the ICND2 (200-101) Certification Exam

Book Description

CCNA Routing and Switching Practice and Study Guide is designed with dozens of exercises to help you learn the concepts and configurations crucial to your success with the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (ICND2 200-101) exam.

The author has mapped the chapters of this book to the last two Cisco Networking Academy courses in the CCNA Routing and Switching curricula, Scaling Networks and Connecting Networks. These courses cover the objectives of the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching certification. Getting your CCNA Routing and Switching certification means that you have the knowledge and skills required to successfully install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a medium-sized routed and switched networks.

As a Cisco Networking Academy student or someone taking CCNA-related classes from professional training organizations, or college- and university-level networking courses, you will gain a detailed understanding of routing by successfully completing all the exercises in this book.

Each chapter is designed with a variety of exercises, activities, and scenarios to help you:

  • Review vocabulary

  • Strengthen troubleshooting skills

  • Boost configuration skills

  • Reinforce concepts

  • Research and analyze topics
