In , Cisco Press contacted Scott and told him, albeit very quietly, that there was going to be a major revision of the CCNP certification exams.
The original idea was to create a single-volume command summary for all four of the new CCNP exams. So, Scott jokingly suggested that Cisco Press let him author four books, one for each exam. Well, you have to be careful what you wish for, because Cisco Press readily agreed. Realizing that this was going to be too much for one part-time author to handle, Scott quickly got his colleague Hans Roth on board as a coauthor.
With the creation of two brand-new CCNP exams, the amount of new information out there is growing on an almost daily basis. There is always a new white paper to read, a new Webinar to view, another slideshow from a Networkers session that was never attended. Networking Devices Used in the Preparation of This Book To verify the commands in this book, many different devices were used. Some of the equipment is quite old. Those of you familiar with Cisco devices will recognize that a majority of these commands work across the entire range of the Cisco product line.
These commands are not limited to the platforms and IOS versions listed. In fact, in most cases, these devices are adequate for someone to continue their studies beyond the CCNP level.
There are also some handy hints and tips along the way to make life a bit easier for you in this endeavor. This book is small enough that you will find it easy to carry around with you. Big, heavy textbooks might look impressive on your bookshelf in your office, but can you really carry them all around with you when you are working in some server room or equipment closet somewhere? As educators, we are always interested to hear how our students, and now readers of our books, do on both vendor exams and future studies.
