Someone out there who's taken the BCSI this year could please help. I've learnt that IS-IS has actually been off the list of CCNP topics starting January. I have verified that this is true in the case of CCIE but i am not sure if I should focus less on IS-IS as a result for my CCNP. Has anyone come across questions on IS-IS in their BCSI exam this year. Any help will be much appreciated as preparing for something that is not necessary for the exam would just be a waste, considering I probably wont encounter IS-IS. .ever

    Its still on the blueprint for the exam - don't study it at your own risk.

    Describe and implement integrated IS-IS
    • Describe the foundational concepts, features, and benefits of integrated IS-IS operation
    • Describe and configure NET addressing
    • Configure and verify multi-area integrated IS-IS

    Just because someone you know doesn't remember their test questions, or got lucky and didn't get that many hard questions on a topic doesn't mean its off the test.

    The blueprint itself is just a vague guide to the content of the tests, since they clearly state "other related topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam."

    No future in the ISP business? ^^
    I would definately study it anyway. I'd expect to see it in other exams outside of the CCNP.

    Present goals: MCAS, MCSA, 70-680

    I would study it..... And it was only removed from the R/S CCIE....You can face it on others. Also, if you go on to do Juniper, you will be happy that you took the time to learn it.

    I would study it in depth, one of the Guys I work with sat the exam a few weeks ago and said he got loads of IS-IS questions. And to top it all off one of his 2 sims involved IS-IS
    Looking for CCIE lab study partnerts, in the UK or Online.
