The official self-study test preparation guide for the Cisco BSCI exam #640-901

Coverage of the CCNP/CCDP/CCIP BSCI exam topics enables you to identify and fill your knowledge gaps before the exam date. You'll learn about:

  • Key routing information including classful and classless routing protocols, distance vector and link-state protocol operation, and the fields of the routing table
  • Extending IP addresses using VLSMs and route summarization and configuring the IP helper address to manage broadcasts
  • Configuring OSPF in a single area and interconnecting multiple OSPF areas
  • Configuring and managing integrated IS-IS, ISO addressing, and Level 1 and 2 area design in IS-IS
  • Configuring EIGRP, how EIGRP supports the use of VLSM and route summarization, and how EIGRP operates in an NBMA environment
  • Configuring and implementing BGP in a scalable network, including how BGP policy-based routing works within an autonomous system, configuring route reflectors, and BGP synchronization
  • Optimizing routing update operation by controlling routing update traffic, configuring route redistribution, and configuring policy-based routing

CCNP BSCI Exam Certification Guide is a comprehensive self-study tool for the CCNP/CCDP(r)/CCIP(tm) Building Scalable Cisco(r) Internetworks (BSCI) #640-901 exam, which evaluates your ability to build scalable, routed Cisco internetworks. This book, updated with over 100 pages of IS-IS protocol coverage, addresses all the major topics on the most recent BSCI #640-901 exam. Master the concepts and technologies upon which you will be tested with this guide, including extending IP addresses, routing principles, scalable routing protocols, managing traffic and access, and optimizing scalable internetworks.

Each chapter of the CCNP BSCI Exam Certification Guide focuses your study on and tests your knowledge of the subjects through specially designed assessment and study features. "Do I Know This Already?" quizzes assess your knowledge and help you decide how much time you need to spend on each section within a chapter. The well-organized Foundation Topics sections detail all the exam topics you need to master. Each chapter includes a Foundation Summary that highlights essential concepts for quick reference and study. Challenging chapter-ending review questions and exercises test your knowledge of the subject matter, reinforce key concepts, and provide you with the opportunity to apply what you've learned in the chapter. In addition, a final chapter of scenarios pulls together concepts from all the chapters to ensure you can apply your knowledge in a real-world environment. Finally, the companion CD-ROM's robust testing engine includes powerful features that enable you to take practice exams that mimic the real testing environment, focus on particular topic areas, randomize answers for reusability, track your progress, and refer to the electronic text for review.
