Hello ITPro TV instructors! So I have been through the entire CCENT course ICND1 v2 and v3 class through ITPro (great time to get started right when they retire an exam I know...) and finally scheduled my exam for later this month. I've been through all 300 practice test questions provided through the ITPro site and plan to hit them multiple more times.. I've been trying to stay disciplined and not venture into CCNA related material and just prep for the task at hand, CCENT.
I've been reviewing other online resources just as a sanity check and have been somewhat alarmed at some of the content I've come across that I didn't see in the ITPro course or practice exams.. For example,
Found a question related to the multicast address of an IPv6 router on your local subnet.. Forget how the question was worded exactly, then they gave various answers A-E:
I went back and reviewed the IPv6 ITPro course in CCENT 100-105 and my notes. It looks like you touched on the network prefix for multicast addresses in IPv6 (FF00::/8), but I don't recall ever hearing anything about something as specific above. Any idea if the CCENT 100-105 exam will expect us to know information like this? Is there more material you would recommend I review on IPv6 to be better prepared?
Another question I came across was related to IP helper in the DHCP config. Again, I went through the class segment on DHCP as well as my notes, and it doesn't appear like IP helper was covered.... Again wondering if this is something CCENT will expect us to be familiar with...?
Another question was related to Variable Length Subnet Mask or VLSM. Anothjer term I don't think I had heard at all through the course.. I am familiar with how to subnet at this point and can handle questions like "what is the network ID or broadcast address for the network containing the IP address 192.168.99.4/26", but some of these VSLM questions I've run across have just blown my mind. Any idea if VSLM shows up on CCENT or was the site I found this on turning me over to CCNA or above questions?
