Amazon Review

Preparing for the practical portion of your Cisco Certified Internetwork Engineer (CCIE) examination, in which you have to configure and troubleshoot networks on Cisco equipment in a testing lab, can be scary. There's simply so much the test proctor can throw at you, and you have to be prepared for it all. CCIE Practical Studies Volume 1 does a fantastic job of preparing you for much of what you can expect to see on the first day of your CCIE lab exam (when you build a system to specifications). Karl Solie, a CCIE himself, approaches each subject on the CCIE syllabus first with a quick academic overview ("here's what frame relay", for instance, "is for, and here's how Cisco equipment thinks of it"). That gives way to a series of examples ("here's a typical set of customer requirements, and here are the IOS commands and configuration files that satisfy them"). Finally, a series of subject-specific lab exercises (which are shorter than a typical day-long CCIE assignment) drill you on the Cisco skills related to the technology at hand. Solie explains how he'd solve the lab--in wonderful detail--immediately after the pages that describe these small lab tasks.

At the end of the book, you'll find five full-scale CCIE labs, very similar to the ones you'll have to complete in eight-and-a-half hours on test day. There are instructions on how to pre-stage your equipment (as the exam proctor would normally do), and what you need to accomplish. You can time yourself on these labs and get a very good idea of your preparedness. Solie could make the next edition of this book better by devoting even more discussion to the troubleshooting techniques appropriate to different kinds of systems. Problems inevitably crop up in CCIE configurations, and there's rarely time to start over in the lab. Regardless, provided you have the equipment and discipline required to work through his exercises independently, this book is a better deal than almost any commercial training course. --David Wall

Hands-on preparation for the CCIE Lab Exams Prepare yourself for the CCIE exam through five complex lab scenario exercises designed to simulate what you will encounter on the CCIE Lab Exam Magnify your network configuration abilities with over 40 lab exercises on LAN and WAN protocols and technologies Increase your CCIE preparation abilities through creating a simulated internetwork for hands-on practice Hone your Catalyst(r) switch configuration skills through practice with VLANs, VTP and trunking protcols, and Spanning-Tree Protocol Enhance your WAN skills through configuration of HDLC, PPP, Frame Relay, Voice over IP, Voice over Frame Relay, Voice over ATM, ISDN, and ATM Gain valuable insight and configuration skills on the primary interior routing protocols-RIP, IGRP, OSPF, and EIGRP Perfect your Transparent Bridging, Integrated Routing and Bridging, Source Route Bridging, Remote Source Route Bridging, and DLSw+ configuration skills Build your security knowledge with information and lab practice on configuring and applying standard, extended, named, and dynamic IP access lists Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) certification is the most difficult and most rewarding of the Cisco(r) certifications. Although the professional and financial benefits of a CCIE are excellent, attaining this level of certification takes years of experience, study, and effort. Serving a dual role of networking reference guide for configuring Cisco routers and preparation tool for the CCIE Lab Exams, CCIE Practical Studies, Volume I, is an ideal resource to help you achieve and earn the coveted CCIE designation. CCIE Practical Studies, Volume I, provides you with the knowledge to assemble and configure all the necessary hardware and software components required to model complex, Cisco-driven internetworks based on the OSI reference model-from Layer 1 on up. Each chapter focuses on one or more specific technologies or protocols and follows up with a battery of CCIE exam-like labs for you to configure that challenges your understanding of the chapter topics and measures your aptitude as a CCIE candidate. The final chapter of the book provides five CCIE "Simulation Labs." These labs not only test your knowledge but your speed as well-a crucial aspect of the new one-day format of the CCIE exam. Among the many resources you will need to study for the CCIE exam, you will find CCIE Practical Studies, Volume I, to be an indispensable preparation tool.

This book is extremely impressive. If you have taken and previously failed the CCIE lab exam then this book is a must. If you haven't taken the lab yet then buy the book! Many of the scenarios within the book actually closely represent the real lab environment. If this wasn't a Cisco Press book I would have thought that the non-disclosure agreement for the exam had been breached. Speaking from experience, this book explains the "tips and tricks" that you will need in order to pass. Sometimes a great knowledge of IP routing and switching is just not enough. When things start to go wrong in the exam you have to quickly know what needs to be re-configured and where it needs to be done. Through practicing with this book in your hand on a rack of routers you should be able to enter the exam with a good degree of confidence, especially now that the exam has taken a single day format, doing away with the troubleshooting section where most people fail. I can't recommend this book enough. Although it seems expensive its a lot cheaper than forking out another $1200 to take the exam again when you fail.

An extremely good technical reference, an ideal companion for anybody attempting to tread the CCIE path. The contents will enlighten even the most weathered network professional. It is designed to be a practical guide to assist with the CCIE Lab, however, its easy to use format and in depth explanations will still assist those with the written exam still to go. It is not the only book you will need to help you through the CCIE, as many topics, notably BGP are not covered. True there are spelling mistakes, and this can be tricky to cope with when reading technical script, but this shouldnt detract from that fact that it is a v. v. good study guide.

Fantastic reference with detailed examples and easy to read. The book is definately at CCIE level, unlike many other texts I've read. Labs are well ordered and demonstrate points clearly.
The downside is that BGP, Voice and Multicast aren't covered and you will have to await Vol 2 for this.
Despite this, the book easily merits five stars !!

This is one of the best Cisco Press books I have read along with CCIE Lan Switching and Routing TCP/IP Vol 1. Each chapter of the book starts with a well written, clear and concise overview of the technology theory, followed by detailed configuration labs for each section. To complement the section labs, there are several full CCIE labs at the end of the book to fry your head. To complete the labs you will need a lot of Cisco kit which may be hard to come by for most readers, such as Cat 5000 switches, token ring switches and ATM modules. Even if you don't have the equipment it is still worth reading the labs as they follow real world configuration scenarios, and will give you a good idea of how to configure the equipment. The book does not contain any multicast or BGP information as this is supposed to be in Volume 2, but at over 1200 pages of information, you will find all you need to know for LAN, WAN, IGP's and other technologies such as NAT and HSRP. Buy it !
