Questions for the CCNA Professionals - August 19, 2009, 08:14 PM

Three part post here..

1 or 2 of your favorite of the following:

- Books
- Forum
- Bootcamps (for when I get comfortable enough with everything.. cherry on top)

Running GNS3 at home, and have a lab of 1 Catalyst 4500 (helluva switch, but still does layer 3), 2 2500s, and 2 2600's at work.

Love studying "bowlersp"'s videos on youtube.. HD and he breaks it down even for us dummys

Friend suggested an ICND1 book from amazon but I haven't bought any books yet.. just been watching videos and reading text online.

What helped you guys the most? Have some reallllly good consultants at work who are willing to teach anything so that's an option but I'd rather them be the last option (how am I going to learn right?).

When I was studying for it I used the Sybex book. I believe its Sybex, the front is white with red letters. I have all the materials at my job, but been to lazy to study for it. Its either MCSE or CCNA for me next.

+1 for Sybex books, I used those for MCSE. For Cisco I mostly used the Cisco Press books.

If you want to know what you're doing, read the books and/or take a class. I have had lots of success with Global Knowledge classes/bootcamps, but I don't have anything to compare it to....

If you just want to pass the tests, check out these:

http://www.net130.com (its Chinese, but type an exam number (try 640-801) into the top right search box...you'll see lots of useful downloads)

Read up to get the basics, then practice hands on or mentor one of the guys at work. If your job will pay for a bootcamp, do it!

I got my MCSE from Vigilar Intense School(bootcamp), I did my CCNA in college and never took the test. I plan to get my CCNA from Intense School next spring.
