*** Part of the Full Course: Cisco CCNA to CCNP Transition ***
Whenever I taught CCNP in the class-room, I found that Students were confused about some topics or commands that they have studied in the CCNA course (with someone else!), and I had to clarify or re-explain these topics or commands to them. This is because these topics or commands are confusing by their nature, or because the way that they are typically explained to the students. Therefore, the idea of this course came in my mind, which intend to clarify those confusing topics or commands.
In this course you will learn about the following topics:
How to understand the network command: How is it related to subnet ID and mask configured on the interface? Do we have to configure this command with that parameters, or we can use other ones?
The OSPF process ID is locally significant: What does that mean? Has the process ID to be the same on routers to form adjacency? Can we configure different process IDs on the same router and why?
Understanding the longest match rule: what is that rule? How is the best path selected and by what order? Are Administrative Distances and Metrics the only factors when selecting the best path?
Understanding the VTP Client Mode: What does propagation in that mode mean? Can a Client switch override the VLAN configuration of a Server Switch? Why have we to be careful when using VTP? and how to properly move a switch from branch to another?
Advanced Configuration of Static Routing: which explains Load Balancing using Static Routing, Floating Static Routes with IP SLA, Getting Help from HSRP and Verifying the Configuration, Static Routing using DHCP, and Configuring Permanent Static Routes. This part is challenging and has a lot of information!.
You do not have to watch the videos in any particular order. You can go directly and watch the videos related to topics or commands that you feel that they confusing or not clear. At the end of the course, there will be a practice test that you can use to find if these topics or commands are clear or still confuse you. You can attempt this practice test after watching the videos as a final check or even before to decide which topics or section you have to watch
I hope that that you will find this course useful, and that it will clarify confusing topics or commands for you, so that you can fully understand the CCNA curriculum, and be ready for your CCNP studies!.
