    For the CCNA you will need to know and understand the following routing protocols:

    - RIP, which is a 'hop count' protocol
    - OSPF, which is a link state protocol (probably most common protocol)
    - EIGRP, which is a Cisco properiatary protocol but has all the features of OSPF but the easiness to configure as RIP.

    Oh and don't forget about static routes.

    What are you using to study? if its a CCNA study guide then as long as it's current you can be sure you need to know anything that's in it.

    IGRP is no longer one of the exam objectives mate. Safe to skip it. If you ever come across it then by all means do a bit of research, for now you have enough to keep you busy.

    Routing protocols to cover:
    RIP
    RIP V2
    EIGRP
    OSPF
