Passed the CCNA. icon_cheers.gifGlad that I did not wait until I "felt" ready. I covered the blueprint and took the exam.

Can't say how long it took because I started 4 years ago and got sidetracked by life, medical issues and other certs.
I used Pluralsight vids and the OCG to fill in gaps, and labbing of course.

I saw a lot of what I didn't think would get emphazied, and very little of what I thought I would need to be hyper focused on....I guess you never know until you are sitting for the exam.

Next is CCDA and CCNA Security

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    HAZELOR13 Know the items on the blue print, be sure to lab. Then lab again. For example, setting up an EIGRP network once is the fun part, doing it 10 more times from scratch is the painful part that will help you pass.
