Based on the course of the same name, and with coverage of intermediate-to-advance networking switching technologies, this book helps CCNP candidates and networking professionals understand switching best practices. The only book authorized by Cisco Systems for early-stage, self-study learning of BCMSN topics, it is the fourth edition of the No. 1 selling early-stage book for the BCMSN exam. CCNP certification indicates advanced or journeyman knowledge of networks. One of the four requirements to achieve CCNP certification is passing the BCMSN exam. Focused on intermediate-level switching issues, the BCMSN exam assesses a candidate's skill at building campus networks using multilayer switching technologies over high speed Ethernet. BCMSN is also a requirement for CCDP certification. About the topic In Aug. 2006, Cisco Systems announced all-new CCNP certification requirements. The previous versions of the BSCI, BCMSN, BCRAN, and CIT exams retire in December 2006. The four new exams/courses are; 642-901 BSCI (Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks) 642-812 BCMSN (Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks) 642-825 ISCW (Implementing Secure Converged WANs) 642-845 ONT (Optimized Converged Cisco Networks)
