The only Cisco-endorsed study guide for the Cisco Internetwork Design Exam
#640-025, Cisco CID Exam Certification Guide covers all of the major
topic areas and objectives for the exam. Organized to help you make the most of
your study time, this book focuses on review of the concepts involved in
advanced network design, principles of network-layer including addressing,
traffic management, and performance considerations.
Foundation Summary sections concisely outline major concepts for quick
reference while chapter-opening quizzes enable you to evaluate your knowledge of
chapter topics. Scenario-based exercises and chapter-ending review questions
reinforce retention and recall of exam topics. Finally, practice questions on
the companion CD-ROM enable you to build and take random sample tests.
