CCNP BSCI Official Exam Certification Guide, Fourth Edition let down

Unanswered Question

Hey all


I'm studying towards the CCNP and have booked the BSCI exam for a couple of weeks away. I've used the BSCI CBT Nuggets videos but I've also just bought the above title (well actually the cert library) and I'm really disappointed with the 'Do I already know this?' quiz.


The first chapter has 12 questions but there is no correlation to the answers for chapter 1 which has 14 answers.


Anyone know if there is an up dated PDF for this book? Given this glaring error I've found IN THE FIRST CHAPTER, I'm now really apprehensive about the quality of the rest of the book.


Thanks


CC


EDIT: Note to self. Think first, type later.

Chapter 3: EIGRP Principles, page 65.


"Bandwidth is defined as 107 kbps divided by the slowest link along the path." Wrong. This should read something like: "Bandwidth is defined as 10^7 divided by the speed of the slowest link along the path."


Chapter 4: Scalable EIGRP, page 118.


The book lists 'frame-relay encapsulation' as the command to enable frame relay on a serial interface. Obviously, this is back to front.

Corrections for all Printings

Chapter 2, Page 41, Under paragraph heading "Reviewing IP"

Reads: 'The far right bits are the network address......".


Should read: “The left-most bits are the network address because all hosts on this network have addresses that start with this pattern. Bits to the right make up the host address because each host on a given network has a different value.


Chapter 3, Page 60, Question 1 - the correct answer is C

Reliably using Real-Time Protocol (RTP), a Cisco proprietary protocol that oversees the communication of EIGRP packets.
