642-642 QoS (books n switches)

Unanswered Question
Apr 13th, 2010

There aren't any recent QoS books covering the 642-642 topics, except one by Wendell Odom dated 2005.  The access switch used for LAN QoS discussion was Cat2950-EI.  Is the exam still based on this access switch?  To what extent are CatOS (eg. Cat6506 queues) and voice-related topics like dial peers covered in the exam?

Have you tried the learning network?


I believe the test has not been updated since 2004/2005 and as far as I know the book you mentioned is the most recent version from cisco press.

You can also check out the boson exam prep for the 642-642 or any CCVP exam:

Thanks, Ryan.  Do u also happen to know whether Cat 2950, IOS 12.1 and CatOS (for the Cat 6500) are still the platforms for the test scenarios?  Or are newer hardware/firmware like Cat 3560, IOS 12.2 are used instead?  The queue structures for the Cat2950 and Cat3560 are different.  BTW, I borrowed Wendal Odom's book+CD from the library but somehow the  password to the testing machine is no longer available (lost).  It will be much appreciated if somebody can help me.  Thanks.
