Here's your all-new CCNA and CCNP Training Post for Tuesday, December 17!

A quick word before we get started...


Do NOT let your studies slide during the holidays -- no problem with taking a little time off, but if you let your studies totally drop over the next few weeks, you're going to have a hard time getting started again in mid-January.

I've seen it happen to others.  Don't let it happen to you!

With that in mind, let's get to today's EIGRP practice exam, and I'll see you Wednesday with another new exam!

Let's get started!


1.  Let's start with the fundamentals. What routing algorithm does EIGRP use?



2.  Identify the true statements.

A. EIGRP is no longer Cisco-proprietary.

B. You can only run EIGRP on Cisco routers.

C.  The AD of an EIGRP internal route is higher than that of an EIGRP external route.

D.  An external EIGRP route is one that's been learned via route redistribution.


3.   Which of the following do potential EIGRP neighbors have to agree upon in order to become actual EIGRP neighbors?

A.  AS number

B.  They must reside on the same subnet.

C.  Area number

D.  EIGRP neighbors don't have to agree on any of these factors or values.


Answers right after this brief, important break!

Time to make a choice.


You can choose to put off your studies until 2014 and lose your momentum totally ...

... or you can be wise and keep hitting your studies now.

My CCNA Video Boot Camp is the best way to keep your success momentum rolling!

You receive over 27 hours of downloadable, info-packed CCENT and CCNA instruction from yours truly for just $44!

Over 7000 students are already there. Join us now!




And now -- the answers!

1.   EIGRP uses DUAL to calculate routes.


2.   Checking out each choice...

A is true.  EIGRP was once Cisco-proprietary, but that's no longer true.

For that reason, B is false.

C is false.  The AD of an EIGRP External route is 170, where the AD of an EIGRP Internal route is 90.

D is true.  When EIGRP learns of a route via route redistribution, that route is marked as External.


3.   A and B.   Potential EIGRP neighbors must be in the same Autonomous System and they must reside on the same subnet.



Great work!  See you Wednesday!

Always Be Passing,

Chris B.

Hi Chris,

Regarding Question 3:

It says ".. NOT have to agree upon in order to become actual EIGRP neighbors"

So shouldn't the answer be
C. Area number

Sorry if I'm missing something, in really sleepy mode! :) Happy Holidays! and thanks for the post
