CCIE R&S/SP Switching Study Plan



Here today I am gonna share the study plan which I used myself to prepare for R&S/SP lab switching portion preparation. It worked pretty well for me and now I feel quite comfortable with this section. During this preparation I used Narbik's workbooks as I didn't have INE/IP Expert Workbooks, but if you like INE/IPX too much like many others then there shouldn't be any problem with that :)


So here we go:
1. CCNP BCMSN EXAM Cert Guide  - From David Hucaby
    skip following chapters including TCAM Details

a. Network Design
b. Wireless portion
c. Multicasting portion


2.while reading any topic in the workbook make sure 

you can find all these topics in the DOC CD under 
3560 Configuration guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3560/software/release/12.2_52_se/configuration/guide/3560scg.html

3. Go through the following switching articles:
