As per Cisco Press book - Note: Dynamic VLANs are not covered in this text or in the SWITCH course or exam (at
press time). For more information, refer to the ?Configuring VMPS? section in a Catalyst

Exam Topics

The following information provides general guidelines for the content likely to be included on the exam. However, other related topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam. In order to better reflect the contents of the exam and for clarity purposes the guidelines below may change at any time without notice.
Implement VLANs.

    Explain the functions of VLANs in a hierarchical network.
    Configure VLANs (e.g., Native, Default, Static and Access).
    Explain and configure VLAN trunking (i.e., IEEE 802.1Q and ISL).
    Explain and configure VTP.
    Verify or troubleshoot VLAN configurations.


Conduct the operation of Spanning Tree protocols in a hierarchical network.

    Explain the functions and operations of the Spanning Tree protocols (i.e., RSTP, PVRST, MISTP).
    Configure RSTP (PVRST) and MISTP.
    Describe and configure STP security mechanisms (i.e., BPDU Guard, BPDU Filtering, Root Guard).
    Configure and Verify UDLD and Loop Guard.
    Verify or troubleshoot Spanning Tree protocol operations.
    Configure and verify link aggregation using PAgP or LACP.


Implement Inter-VLAN routing.

    Explain and configure Inter-VLAN routing (i.e., SVI and routed ports).
    Explain and enable CEF operation.
    Verify or troubleshoot InterVLAN routing configurations.


Implement gateway redundancy technologies.

    Explain the functions and operations of gateway redundancy protocols (i.e., HSRP, VRRP, and GLBP).
    Configure HSRP, VRRP, and GLBP.
    Verify High Availability configurations.


Describe and configure wireless client access.

    Describe the components and operations of WLAN topologies (i.e., AP and Bridge).
    Describe the features of Client Devices, Network Unification, and Mobility Platforms (i.e., CCX, LWAPP).
    Configure a wireless client (i.e., ADU).


Describe and configure security features in a switched network.

    Describe common Layer 2 network attacks (e.g., MAC Flooding, Rogue Devices, VLAN Hopping, DHCP Spoofing, etc.)
    Explain and configure Port Security,802.1x, VACLs, Private VLANs, DHCP Snooping, and DAI.
