Preparing for the ISCW

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hello again folks! So this time I’m getting ready to write my 3rd exam in the CCNP series of exams. The next exam is called the ISCW ( Implementing Secure Converged Wide Area Networks).  This is exam # 642-825.

The ISCW exam material seems to be smaller to me. I’ve also heard it is easier than the BSCI and the BCMSN. It covers topics such as

  • Basic configurations for Cisco routers when you’re configuring them in a teleworker scenario such as with DSL or Cable Internet.
  • IPSec VPN
  • MPLS
  • Mitigation of Common Network attacks
  • IOS Firewall
  • IPS
  • Hardening of Cisco Devices

Now that does sound like a lot of material but it shouldn’t be too bad considering how crazy the BSCI exam was. I figure if I wrote the BSCI successfully the rest should be comparitively easier (not easy, but just in comparison). So since I was so successful with the last two, I’m not going to abandon my strategy. A combination of the learning from my boot camp combined with the Cisco self-study guide, more lab time and the Bryant’s Advantage study guide should allow me to pass the exam.
