    Excellent Job Brian, you are the best person have in depth knowledge and great teaching skill.

  2. JIBhatia says:

    When will the workbook be updated for ISCW?

  3. The ISCW section is included in the workbook with more updates coming.

  4. Tony says:

    What about the ONT section of the Lab workbook?

  5. Tony says:

    Also, Why are there only 3 topics covered in the ISCW lab, what about MPLS VRF instances ?

  6. Deepak Arora says:

    How about ONT QOS & Voice Part ?

  7. FrozenEyes says:

    is there MPLS section in the workbook ??

  8. MPLS VPNs are not part of the scope. “Configure and verify Frame-Mode MPLS” in the blueprint simply means the one command “mpls ip” at the interface level. Watch the videos in the MPLS section and you’ll see what I mean by this. The MPLS VPN videos are a bonus to show what the real scope of MPLS is.

    For the QoS portion, since only SDM configs are covered, it’s basically just 2 or 3 screens to click through. This is already covered in the videos for those sections, but I’ll add it into the workbook anyways.

    Remember that the vast majority of the CCNP exams are theory based, not implementation based like the CCIE track. If you want more configuration examples to go through, I would recommend the Cisco IOS Cookbook, Second Edition ( and our CCIE Routing & Switching Lab Workbook Volume I (

  9. More updates have been added to the ISCW and ONT sections.

    @ Brian McGahan

    Great work
    I think INE CCNP Workbook is far better and very much focused to real world issues.

    Yes, I do agree with you on INE R&S Vol-1 WB. If some really need to learn hardcore stuff then why not go for it.
