If you feel like you know a fair amount about professional-level routing topics already (at a level that makes taking the BSCN course not very worthwhile), but you are worried about the few topics that you simply just have not worked with, then this strategy is for you. This book is designed to help you figure out what IP routing topics you need some help with, and then help you learn about them. Here is the simple strategy for you:
• Strategy 1—Use this book exactly as described in the opening pages of Chapters 2 through 10. Each of the core chapters begins with a quiz that helps you assess what you need to study. It then directs you to the appropriate sections in the chapter rather than requiring you to read the entirety of each chapter.
• Strategy 2—Use the directions at the beginning of Chapter 11 to direct your final study before the exam. Chapter 11 is designed to review many concepts; in addition, it outlines a good process for study in the days leading up to your exam.
You will be able to fill in the gaps in your knowledge this way, and not risk being bored in the BSCN class when it covers the topics that you already know!
