Description Reviews Special Offer
This book serves as both an exam preparation guide for the Designing & Troubleshooting Open Standards Networks (HP0-Y32) Certification Exam, and as a valuable reference guide for designing, configuring, managing and supporting HP Data Networks. Not only does the book address technologies such as: OSI Layer 2 switching, STP (both proprietary and standard), Link Aggregation, IRF, IP Addressing/Subnetting, Dynamic IP Routing, NAT/PAT, QoS and Access Control Lists, but it also provides guidelines for getting these technologies to effectively interoperate among multiple vendors, as well as troubleshooting common issues with implementing these various technologies. Organized along the HP0-Y32 Exam Objectives, chapters can be studied independently or comprehensively when preparing for the HP ASE certification HP0-Y32 exam. Once you have passed the exam, it will continue to serve as a valuable tool when studying for further certification exams (e.g. HP Master ASE), and when solving problems in your day-to-day responsibilities of supporting data networks.

Typos, cannot understand Tables and Figures

Alonso Roman


I read this book to prepare for the HP0-Y32 exam and even considering the latest errata, this is my feedback:

1. I found some typos that were not included in the latest errata

2. Some of the Tables cannot be understood well, because they do not have the internal horizontal and vertical lines, dividing the different rows. Without these internal horizontal and vertical lines, it is very hard to distinguish where each column ends and the next one begins; or which lines in one column, corresponds to which lines in another column. These tables are a big problem at least on this ebook

3. Some of the Figures cannot be understood well, because they are in a very small size. It seems like they are exactly the same figures from the slideshow used for the official HP courses for this exam. Some of the figures do not even have any drawing, it is just text from the slideshow used for the official HP courses.We cannot expect a simple "copy and paste" from a course on this ebook, without paying attention if the figures can be understood well

4. The commands on how to configure, and verify functionality for a single topic on Cisco IOS, HP ProVision and HP Comware should be explained in a single table similar to this one:

Description Commands on IOS Commands on ProVision Commands on Comware
Configure OSPF in a single area IOS(config)# router ospf <process-ID> ProVision(config)# ip router-id <router-id> [Comware] ospf <process-ID>[router-id <router-id> <area-ID>]
IOS(config-router)# network <network address> <wildcard mask> area <area-ID> ProVision(config)# router ospf [Comware-ospf-<id>] area <area-ID>
ProVision(ospf)# area <area-ID> [Comware-ospf-<id>-area-<id>] network <network address> <wildcard mask>
ProVision(config)# vlan <VLAN-ID>
ProVision(vlan-<vlan-id>)# ip ospf area <area-ID>
Verify an interface is enabled for OSPF IOS# show ip ospf interface ProVision# show ip ospf interface [Comware] display ospf interface

I used the “Add note to text” function from Adobe Digital Editions on the working copy of the ebook that I read to indicated them. If you would like to have the annotations file from my ebook, I would be more than happy to provide it to you. I could also provide screen shots of the Tables and Figures if you want

As a Network Engineer, I have too little time to study for certification exams. Therefore, I think the Certification Guide books should be as much as concise as possible (not repeating the same text)

If as HP, we want to improve the market share on the Networking field against competitors (mostly against Cisco), I think we first need to improve the books to prepare for the certification exams. In this, I think that for example Cisco is already ahead of us, because Cisco Press has very good Certification Guide books, for the different Cisco certification exams

All of this feedback is just my personal opinion, with some personal suggestions, and it is intended to improve the quality of the books from HP Press. Please don’t take it personal against you, or against the author or reviewers of the Y32 Certification Guide

If you have any questions please let me know

Thanks in advance

This book helped me pass the HP0-Y32 exam, and for that I'm pretty happy. If you have some experience with HPN equipment, you can pass with this book, and maybe a couple of technology-specific PDFs that you can download for free from HP (e.g. on IRF).

If you're aiming to pass HP0-Y32, make sure you pay attention to the exam objectives listed here - they are spot-on with telling you exactly where you need to study.

A couple of quibbles:
* There was quite a number of typos and minor errata - I've submitted these to the publisher
* Compared to the bundle pricing for physical books, the Kindle prices don't make sense.
* It is a shame that the books are not available via Safari books, and/or in a DRM-free format. Kindle format is OK, but I can't easily search all content across all files on my laptop.
Valuable in Preperation

This was invaluable in my preparation for the exam, providing me the final bit of rounding i needed to successfully pass.
