  • Anyone studying for your CCNA ?

    Who out there is studying for their CCNA? Maybe the petri forums can be useful in connecting study partners.

    Besides the Cisco Press Wendell Odom ICND books- what is the best CCNA prep material available??

    -------------------------------

    I hope this forum can be useful to all prepping for the CCNA/CCDA.

    If you have questions, please post them here!

    Thanks,

    My friend Rick has been putting it off for a few years. I've been trying to motivate him to get it in gear and pass that sucker. I'll ask him what book he is reading and post back here.

        Okay, I'll throw out one training source, how about TrainSignal's CCNA video guide? Here is the URL:
        http://www.trainsignal.com/index.asp...PROD&ProdID=35

        Has anyone used it yet? If so, what did you think?

        The URL above has a 9 minute demo and a demo of the lab book if anyone is interested.

          Here are a couple of other sources-

          TrainSignalTraining.com
          http://trainsignaltraining.com/freet...cisco/ccna.pdf

          Cisco's new CCNA Prep Center
          http://forums.cisco.com/eforum/servl...nter?page=main
          It has Cisco learning games, among other good CCNA study material.

            Hi David - I am studying for the CCDA right now. I have completed the first class(Intro to Network Management Design Concepts). Just taking it one small step at a time.

                    its not hard, really...but im not sure about my job, cause in Bosnia...ppl dont have sense for those things yet and i think im gonna wait for my job for a long time , i am also certified HP IT2 essentials, thinking about CCNP already cause i have some materials and after CCNA i think CCNP is much easier because actually you just upgrade your skills on networks about which you already know enough...and wanted to hear from you about that...is that true?How much are CCNA certified ppl wanted there in your countries? (here...the situation is really bad about that) and i think its time for me to start learning to make web sites,cause i never did that....can anyone give me a link for some good begginer guides?for example for Dreamweaver...???thnx

                      Hi emirz,

                      Yes, I would recommend going for the CCNP after the CCNA. It would distinguish you more. It isn't that much more difficult, really, just more detailed. You just dive into each topic (switching, troubleshooting, routing, remote access, etc) more.

                      CCNA Certified people in the US are valued and the job market is good. I think a CCNA and some experience would go a long way to getting a decent entry-level job. Of course, if you have more experience you could get more than an "entry-level" job. You can get just about any job with any certification, as they say "depending on experience".

                      Yes, making web pages is fun but goes down a completely different path of the IT industry.

                      Best of luck to you!
