    Default CCNP Switch preparation questions

    Hi,

    I am planning to do the CCNP, starting with switch. I have read the FAQs but I noted most are dated from 2006 - 2008. Has the exam really not changed much in the last 10 years, does this make the exam less valuable today?

    Anyway, I am trying to find out what material is best to use for the exam today.

    Is the CCNP series by Jeremy cioara enough material to prepare for the exam?

    I have very little hardware to use. Whats the best simulation software to use and is it enough to prepare for the exam?

    What is a good book to use?

    I can recommend OCG from Cisco Press and INE Switch course.
    And about simulation - nothing can fully simulate real gear - just buy some time in rack rental - the best solution IMHO.

    For the Switch exam you really need real gear. Virtualization is not that good at re-creating all of the features you will be tested on for the exam

    Jeremy's course is good, but not enough for the exam. I also recommend INE's course.

    Physical hardware is great, but Cisco VIRL would also be helpful for you, if you have a machine capable of running it on.

    VIRL - Virtual Internet Routing Lab


    You can also buy labs from CLN

    Yogiraj an, Please don't spread test dumps. It's offensive to those of us who follow the rules.
