The Exam Cram Method of study focuses on exactly what you need to getcertified now. In this book you'll learn how to:

  • Distinguish the differences between link-state and distance vector protocols, and classfull and classless routing

  • Understand hierarchial addressing using route summarization and VLSM

  • Configure, manage, and optimize routing protocols including RIPv2, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP4

  • Deploy the proper technologies for building scalable solutions using link-state protocols and route redistribution

  • Manage and optimize routing information with filters, metrics, administrative distance, and policy-based routing

  • Review a multitude of sample configurations, deployments, and scenarios for the pertinent routing protocols

  • Master the key terminology, concepts, and commands for the Cisco router

  • Maintain and support a Web application

  • Configure an ASP.NET application for high-performance and security
