Collection of Routing & Switching Lab Exercises
for the Cisco® CCNA™, CCNP™, and CCIE™ Exams

This collection contains the challenging configuration and design exercises needed to prepare for the CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE written exams. The Collection contains 81 configuration, case-study, and troubleshooting exercises that address eight major areas found on Cisco exams including, Basic Router Operation, IOS Features, Bridging & Switching, IP Routing Protocols, WAN Protocols, Non-IP Routing Protocols, Multi-Service & QOS, and Security. Up until now, these exercises have been presented online at the Certification Zone website.

The exercises found in the Collection have been developed by Certification Zone's team of 27 highly skilled networking professionals who are committed to providing world class Cisco certification study resources. In addition to the combined decades of experience that these contributors bring to Certification Zone's Collection, they also have a great understanding of Cisco technologies - twelve of which have their CCIE, nine have their CCNP, and several are published authors of best-selling books on IT and networking.

Jason Sinclair, CCIE #9100 and the Technical Editor of the Collection, has developed the sequence of the exercises found in the Collection so that users can study each topic in a series of labs. In fact, the exercises are in a logical sequence that enables users to apply the knowledge and experience they gain on a lab exercise devoted to a particular topic, to solve the following exercises dealing with that same topic.

The Collection comes with a CD-ROM that includes appropriate initial and solution configs. The CD also includes color graphics such as network diagrams that play an integral part in understanding many of the labs. Each exercise is also cross referenced to the applicable Cisco exam blueprint(s) and includes the hardware topology necessary to complete the scenario. The Collection is housed in a sturdy three-ring binder, making it easy to pull out the specific lab exercises. The equipment needed to complete these exercises is commonly found in many home labs or readily available from several remote rack merchants.

Since Cisco is continually making its Routing & Switching exams more challenging, this Collection is a must-have. In fact, Cisco has already eliminated many questions that simply require a good memory of configuration commands and replaced them with router simulation and case-study problems that require hands-on configuration skills. This Collection of lab exercises is designed to prepare you for this new challenge.
