CCNP library

Unanswered Question
Jun 18th, 2007

I hope to be passing my CCNA here in a few months. On urging by several people that have stated it be best to just run in and get my CCNP while I am at it.

My work has a CiscoPress series of books for passing the CCNP but I have no idea how old they are, as they have no exam numbers on them. They are copyright 1999 so at most 8 years old. Is there a large difference, and would I be putting my studying in jeopardy by studying with what could be older material?

I have this problem too.

The CCNP track was just revised in the last 9 months or so and has been significantly updated. 2 of the 4 tests were replaced. BCRAN has been replaced with ISCW and CIT has been replaced with ONT. The switching and routing tests have been updated with much more security, wireless, updates to the routing protocols, and IP6.

ISCW focuses heavily on SOHO support w/concepts like cable modem/dsl configuration and troubleshooting, MPLS, MPLS VPN, site-to site VPN, GRE....etc.

ONT deals with optimizing converged networks. This is heavy on QoS concepts.

I would strongly urge you to get updated study materials.
