If you are studying for your Cisco CCNA using only books and videos then you are missing out on one of the most effective ways to learn on the go. Cisco CCNA in 60 Days in audio format (MP3) lets you study while driving, working out or while relaxing at home.
For decades, people have been using audio learning to master new languages but until now, you couldn't study for IT exams using audio books.
This course can be downloaded to any mp3 device or just streamed off the web. You also get over $400 in bonus videos, exams and study tools.
This course is broken into ICND1/ICND2 format so you can take the two or one exam options. It's updated for the latest CCNA exam and more lessons will be added if Cisco ever add topics to the syllabus.
Let Cisco expert Paul Browning help you retain valuable information you can use for the exam and in the real world as a Cisco engineer.
Nothing beats hands on experience. Here's how you build a home lab. Remember that you can always sell it after you pass.
You need a proven plan if you want to pass your exam. Here it is.
Some final important points.
All the goodies you get with the course. Access to videos, exams and the forum.
Let's get started. Looking at network devices covered in the CCNA exam.
You will get some TCP and OSI questions in the exam. Here's what you need to know.
Common standards and cables types you will come across in the exam and the field.
Not really used in modern networks but still an exam topic so here we go!
A core CCNA topic. You will be dealing with VLANs daily as a Cisco engineer.
How to troubleshoot VLAN issues for the exam and for real.
DTP has dropped down from the CCNP SWITCH exam! Let's learn how it works.
VTP is a core CCNA level subject so let's learn it.
Yet another former CCNP level subject. You need to know your options and how to configure it for the exam.
Basic steps to protect your router from unauthorized access.
Now that switches run IOS, many of the security steps are the same as those for routers.
You can expect questions or a lab on port security and CDP. Both core subjects.
Love it or hate it, binary math is in the exam.
You need to be both quick and accurate with your subnetting. Like any still, it takes time to become good at it.
VLSM is an almost certainty for exam questions. Same goes for knowing how to summarize a set of IP addresses.
NAT is what has enabled us to use the internet long after we ran out of IPv4 addresses.
Many people fear IPv6 but once you learn it, you will find it makes more sense than IPv4.
You need to understand the address types used by IPv6.
Let's get down to how it all works.
It will be a few years before we are all running pure IPv6 networks. Until they we need to know how to run them together.
I worked in the police in the UK for 12 years as a patrol officer and detective. While I was in the job I helped teach the new e-mail system to other officers. I took a few IT exams and then left for a career in IT in June 2000.
I took a few more exams with vendors such as Cisco and Microsoft and got a job working for Cisco for two years. I then started an IT training company teaching Cisco and computer networking courses. I built the business until it had several offices in the UK and then sold it.
I now run a publishing business and several websites teaching IT related subjects. I've learned how to build a successful company and how to make it in the world of IT. I hope what I've learned helps you too.
