Studying for your CCNA R/S (200-125) exam? If so, a perusal of the exam topics list can be daunting. Clearly, you’re going to spend a significant amount of time getting at least a passing familiarity with the myriad of topics. However, your focus should not be spread evenly over all topics. Rather, there are some topics that need a disproportionately large amount of study.
That’s the focus of this blog post, identifying 3 of the topics likely to appear multiple times on your 200-125 exam. These topics won’t come as any surprise, but I hope this will be a reminder to expend that extra measure of effort when reviewing “the big 3.” Let’s check out the list:
To be prepared for IP addressing questions on the CCNA R/S exam, you need several skills, including:
This version of the CCNA R/S requires you to know how to configure, verify, and troubleshoot the OSPF interior gateway protocol (IGP) not just for IPv4, but also for IPv6. So, if you have access to practice routers (or router simulators or emulators), labbing up a few OSPF topologies would definitely be a good use of your time.
Similar to OSPF, you’ll want to know how to configure, verify, and troubleshoot EIGRP for both IPv4 and IPv6.
Of course, all of the above topics are covered in my CCNA R/S (200-125) Complete Video Course. However, I do have some freely available YouTube videos covering these and other Route/Switch topics available in a playlist. Just click HERE to access the playlist, and enjoy the videos!
