As promised I have begun posting new updates to the CCNP Lab Workbook, for customers of the CCNP Bootcamp Class-on-Demand. In addition to the previously available BCMSN section, the EIGRP portion of the BSCI section is now posted. I should be posting another batch of updates tomorrow which include OSPF and possibly IS-IS, along with the rest of the topics to soon follow. Current customers can find these updates on the members site.

Stay tuned for more!


The first beta release of our CCNP Lab Workbook is now posted for all customers of the CCNP Bootcamp Class-on-Demand.  A sample of it can be viewed here. Current customers can find the workbook on the CCNP Bootcamp Class-on-Demand page of the INE Members Site.

Currently the workbook covers BCMSN.  Within the coming week it will be incrementally updated with the lab content for BSCI, ISCW, and ONT.  There is a timestamp on the members site page that you use to access the workbook, so make sure to take note of this as there will be a large amount of updates in a small amount of time coming shortly.  The current outline of the BCMSN section is as follows:

  • VLANs
  • Access Ports
