    Good luck! It's a lot harder than it used to be, to my understanding.

    If you pretend that the old CCNA exam was in Kansas... then for the new one you have to act like you're not in Kansas anymore -- but we won't call you Toto. icon_lol.gif

    If you've got the Cisco Press books, you should be okay. If you have the Sybex book -- download the updates. I think NAT is one of the old CCNP topics that moved down to the CCNA. The Sybex book is weak on NAT -- but they have the new downloadable chapter.

    If you have the 5th edition Sybex book it should have the NAT stuff on the CD already.

    I have the 5th edition but one of my rottweilers at the cd... The chapter was rather sparce in the book.
    But then again, I didnt really think that the cisco press book really went into huge amounts of detail.

    The second edition book is very out dated.
