    CCIP consists of Route, BGP, MPLS, QoS.
    No QoS discussion here ?

    Hi, I have done ccnp 642-901. I’m planning to do CCIP. So i have to complete only BGP, MPLS and QOS right. No need to write 642-902 right. Pls clarify.

    hi all. passed with a mark of 1000 last April 13, 2011.
    all labs and D&D from this website are valid,,,, i’ve commented some tips on each of the category (check them out).
    for the multiple choice questions, i used 642-691 Cisco.CertifyMe.642-691.v2010-11-04.by.DoDo.80q.vce

    materials used:
    Cisco Press BGP Design and Implementation eBook
    CBT Nuggets BGP video from the CCIE combo pack
    Cisco Press MPLS Fundamentals eBook

    but then again, you can get a perfect score by just using iptut and some dumps,,,using materials are there for additional knowledge. so if you are currently working hands-on with these technologies like me, then i suggest reading books/materials, it will really be helpful to you!
    g’luck guys!

    @idan and @Prajai
    in that case, you dont need to take ROUTE anymore.
    you can take BGP and MPLS separately but why not just take 642-691 BGP+MPLS composite, its like hitting 2 birds at a time.
    and of course the QoS exam. you can take which ones first, either way you can only be certified as CCIP once you completed those all. gluck!!

    Hi Guys, I passed TSHOOT and became CCNP certified. So I hv decided to prepare for CCIP certification. Thanks a lot to Networktut for this portal. Now I hv started studying for BGP+MPLS composite examination.

    The reason for which I decided to prefer CCIP certification is that currently I am working on BGP and MPLS technology. We migrating the existing lease line to MPLS-VPN. So I am very much excited to learn about BGP & MPLS in deep. BGP is the most tunable protocol in the world and MPLS is the industry standard CEF technology. So the study will be lots of fun and excitement.

    Good luck everyone.

    Hi Guys,

    Hopefully someone can answer this for me…

    The sims on this website are for BPG + MPLS exam. OK I understand that… but are the sims for the individual exams the same? OR are they completely different?

  13. iptut
    April 20th, 2011 at 07:52 | #13

    @Anon: The two sims posted on this site belong to the composite MPLS + BGP exam. In individual exam, for example MPLS 642-611, besides the MPLS TDP Neighbor Lab Sim (http://www.iptut.com/bgp-mpls-642-691-exam/lab-sim/mpls-tdp-neighbor-lab-sim) you will see another MPLS VPN Sim (which hasn’t been posted here).

    Welcome guys who have decided to go for CCIP certification. Once again thanking to admin for this amazing portal.

    Now my BGP study is going on. What I saw that BGP attributes are the backbone of BGP study which give the flexibility to choose one route over another when multiple paths are available for same prefix.

    Following are some materials that you can prefer for your BGP study.

    1-Knowledgenet Configuring BGP 3.0(642-661)
    2-Internetwork Expert BGP Bootcamp
    3-NetMasterClass BGP Video on demand
    4- BGP case study from cisco site.
    5-Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP) v3.2 Volume1/Volume2
    6-CiscoPress BGP-4 Command and Configuration Handbook

    Check the following web site where you will get useful labs for CCIP( BGP/MPLS)

    Ena/Dinesh 🙂
    Good to see you here,I am done with CCNP, I am planning to do CCIP too, I have a question: in order for me to be CCIP, do i have to take test for BGP+MPLS and QoS all three or just BGP+MPLS?

  33. SC
    May 2nd, 2011 at 17:59 | #33

    To get the CCIP Cert you must pass 3 more exam out of 4 (the ROUTE exam you already passed when you passed the CCNP)
    The 3 exams are: QoS, BGP and MPLS
    one way to get the CCIP is to pass by take them one-by-one (3 exams)
    the other way is to pass the composite exam (BGP+MPLS) and QoS exam (2 exam)
    either way have a good luck 🙂

  34. chris
    May 3rd, 2011 at 03:16 | #34

    Should take separate MPLS module because you will learn
    Traffic Engineering..quite interesting topic.

    I was wondering if anyone has the CBT link for BGP+MPLS+QoS?

  36. myself
    May 3rd, 2011 at 22:09 | #36

    From CBT Nuggets there’s only QoS. Now as much as I like Jeremy’s teaching, I think INE’s offerings are better. Try searching for “INE 642-611 MPLS” , “INE 642-642 QoS” and “INE 642-661 BGP” on the following site: http://ebookee.org/ and choose the first links.
    http://www.careercert.info/ has a lot of good resources for those exams as well.
    Good luck.

    3. this site site
    4. BGP_642-661_P4S_v2.75_194Q – 100% valid

    95% from the exam Question covered in the Student Guide but there are some topics like “bandwidth like dmzbw something issue ” that arent covered there

    May 5th, 2011 at 03:41 | #42

    Congrats on passing, I have been using the same materials that you have been, but without the P4S. I usually only go through the dumps 1-2 days before I sit the exam to make sure I know everything. Thanks for filling me with a bit more confidence that I am studying the right stuff.

  43. SC
    May 5th, 2011 at 05:23 | #43


    i hate using p4s but there is alot that you can learn from them. lot of them questions i answered wrong caused me to investigate the topics again, create a lab to understand y i was wrong. p4s dump is another good resource to learn from.
    either way have a goood luck

    You can only see 5 q’s because you are using the shareware version of VCE. Try getting the cracked version (Visual.CertExam.Suite.v1.9.978-ZWT).

    After doing all the test, I can see that there are some redundant questions. So for me 642-691 v2011-05-19 by Bliss 87q.vce and 642-691.v2010-11-04.by.DoDo.80q.vce are the same.

    Best regards,

    There is no cracked version of a dump. What you need is the cracked version of the program Visual CertExam. I can’t remember where I downloaded it from, but search the Inet for “VCE cracked”.
