    I would highly recommend the Wendell Odom books. The set is $30-something off amazon

    Thanks 4 the recommendation :) The exam will be writtened, so hope i can remember what I have revised.
    My lecturer says the exam will cover the same material as the previous one, but there are new questions, so does this mean the exam will almost be similar to the one that was taken in Jan 2012?? Also out of curious, i see your from Irish, are you in any chance a Westlife Fan??

    Welcome to the board. Most of us are helpful. There's no stupid questions, and asking questions helps other on the board. Either by refreshing old knowledge, reinforcing knowledge, or by asking questions that appear odd. For CCNA prepared to do a lot of studying if you don't have some hands on experience with the material already.
    In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

    I wouldn't take the exam lightly to the point of being too confident. The CCNA may not be professional level, but it's still a tough little exam. Don't just revise, revise very well. If you know the stuff well, you shouldn't have a problem. Just make sure to read the question. Also, read the question. Just to be safe, read the question. :) Good luck.

    The question pool is large enough that the questions and focus can vary quite a bit from attempt to attempt. However, if you know the topics well, and practice enough on a simuated or real IOS device, you'll be fine. :)

    Welcome to TE.

    For the CCNA, be sure to check out the CCNA/CCENT section of the site.

    Learn to be able to subnet in under a minute per question, how switches and routers make their forwarding decisions (and why), and whatever else those who've taken the exams recently have to say.

    So how do you like networking, Mallow? Are you enjoying it? Do you have a network simulator to use?

    It is enjoyable, but i just don't like subnetting only :)

    I've known a lot of people to dislike subnetting that start networking. I think eventually you brush it off and embrace it. It starts to become natural to you at some point. :)

    Subnetting was a pain to me too until I started doing labs. It starts getting easier as you start to apply it or you're given a situation create subnets in. Keep going! You'll get there :)

    I used Todd Lammle book for CCNA, I'm not sure if it's still relevant, but he explained subnetting in a very nice way
