CCNP - BCMSN syllabus

Unanswered Question
May 14th, 2009


I have checked out the syllabus for CCNP-BCMSN exam 642-812 on cisco's website.

I am studying from the book "Foundadtion learning for CCNP 642-812 BCMSN" by ciscopress.

I am finding some gaps in these two documentations.

Website mentions a single line for QoS Like this : (Configure and verify basic IP Phone support - i.e. Voice VLAN, Trust and CoS options, AutoQoS for voice).

For this there is one full chapter in the book which mentions many algorithms for QoS with commands to implement and verify.

Website do not mention for Multicast configuration on switches but in the book there is one chapter for multicast.

Safest way is to study the superset of both the documents. But that amounts to lots.

Any experience please share.

Thanks in advance


I have this problem too.

I recently passed the BCMSN to recertify ccnp. I can say the QOS section you really need to know. The multicast section you should read over and have a basic understanding at least with the way multicast works but not as critical as the QOS section.
