As author Andrew Bruce Caslow so eloquently states, Cisco Certification: Bridges, Routers, and Switches for CCIEs is focused solely on providing a structured roadmap to Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert (CCIE) certification. At the very least, it will help you master the portion of certification that pertains to configuring, monitoring, and troubleshooting the Cisco equipment referenced in the title. A massive volume--the table of contents alone is 34 pages long--the coverage within ranges from general guidelines for port configuration to information on bridging nonroutable traffic to details on navigating the Cisco Internetworking Operating System (IOS).
As is common to this genre, the book is replete with configuration commands, diagrams, and tables. However, it maintains a more pragmatic tone than most as each chapter ends with some or all of the following elements: a summary, a professional development checklist, references for further study, and a "Can You Spot the Issues?" section containing networking word problems. The answers to these problems are found in one of the book's appendices. Also included is a section devoted to test preparation and test-taking techniques that details the skills assessed during the CCIE exam as well as commonly encountered testing landmines. An admirable effort, this granular but well-organized tome certainly appears to meet its stated goal. --Sarah L. Roberts-WittFrom the Inside Flap:
"When we think about the future of the world, we always have in mind its being at the place where it would be if it continued to move as we see it moving now. We do not realize that it moves not in a straight line, but in a curve, and that its direction is changing constantly." -Ludwig Wittgenstein Writing this book was a tremendous challenge. The potential topics of CCIE certification are vast, ever expanding and ever changing. In order to cover the wide range of topics covered in this book, assistance from several associates in the Cisco community was required. In particular, I would like to thank Valeriy Pavlichenko (CCIE) for providing technical editing services. Valeriy is one of the most disiplined and systematic internetworking engineers in the business. Without his feedback, much of the work of this book would not have been done. Secondly, special thanks must be given to Brent Baccala, the editor of the Internet Encyclopedia at. Brent provided key contributions to Chapters Nine, Eleven and Fourteen. Brent Baccala is blessed with a tremendous combination of brilliant technical insight and strong writing skills. Brent's ability to explain highly technical topics clearly has been tremendous inspiration to me. Finally, special thanks must be given to fellow Cisco Certified Instructor and CCIE Rajah Chowbay. Rajah assisted in drafting Chapter Seven of this book as well as provided tremendous influence in the structure in each and every chapter of this book. Thanks must also be given to Mr. Albert Spaulding and his company ARS, Ltd. (Alexandria, Virginia) for providing the time and resources to write this book. Thank you Mr Spaulding and ARS! Specific contributions to the book came from the following associates: Paul Bourghese (CCIE and Certified Cisco Instructor) for developing Chapter Twenty-Four. James Park (CCIE and Certified Cisco Instructor) for editing Chapters Sixteen, Seventeen and Twenty-Five. Fred Ingham (CCIE and Certified Cisco Instructor) for editing Chapters Twenty-One as well as Chapters Twenty-Three through Twenty-Nine. Summantra Roy (CCIE) for reviewing Chapter Twenty-One. Guillermo The Marine!! Rastelli for providing graphics and logistics support. All ARS Bridges, Routers and Switches for CCIEs students. ARS BRS students are the best and brightest students in the internetworking industry! Remember my students, "Can you spot the issue?" Writing this book also required extensive support of friends and family. Special thanks goes out to my mother, my brothers and sisters, my dear friends Spottie, the Constable of France and the Schwarz Graf. Finally, I must thank my wife Lania and two daughters Andreina and Gabriela for their love and support during the long lonely months of writing this book.
