CCENT/CCNA Hangout Study Group

NytrocideNytrocide Member Posts: 225
I've seen some study groups here and there in this section, but haven't seen anything similar to this. I got my CCNA back in September right before the deadline, and I'm trying to catch up a bit and refresh myself doing some material. I see a lot of people on here clamoring for an active, close-knit study group, and I'm proposing a CCENT/CCNA Google Hangouts study group/chat where anyone can ask a question or chat about a subject at any time. Keep in mind you can shut off notifications whenever you want.

Most of us have smartphones, and all have computers, so this is easily do-able from anywhere. With the video feature available on both as well, maybe we could set up a weekly (or more frequent) group video chat. Google Hangouts is available on PC (and integrated in Gmail), Mac, iOS, Android, etc. so it's more of a viable platform than say iMessage or something similar that's platform specific.

If anyone is interested, send me a PM (or post your thoughts here) and I'll add you to the chat/group! Been wanting to do this for a while...just when you seem to drift off into la-la land, you get a message from someone to get you back on track and in the Cisco state of mind! icon_wink.gif

    Yeah I remember that (I joined too!), and I feel the whole Google Groups thing threw it off. I'm aiming for a Hangouts group only, for file storage we'll get it situated once we have a group going.

    Also, there's no need to participate in the video chats if anyone feels uncomfortable. While the video chat is active you can just text chat and we'll see it and respond just like anyone else doing video.

    I'll gladly start the group, just start PMing me your info and I'll add asap. I have this thread subscribed with instant email notifications and my phone is considered an additional organ on my body, haha.

    We're doing both the CCENT and CCNA, all levels. Friendly discussion where you can ask about an issue or bounce a question off anyone. Those interested please PM me your Google email. UK, US, Mars, doesn't matter! :)

    As far as stages, I passed my CCNA back in September but forget almost all of it besides the basics. Life was a little hectic from October to very recently and I'm wanting to dive head first and familiarize myself with everything once again.

    Ah, yes.. the Google Groups didn't last long. The TE is better situated towards what the CCENT/CCNA Google Group wasn't. Looking back at it now and wondering where all the time went and I have yet to have my CCNA completed or even the CCENT.

    I'm interested in joining the Hangouts. Can we do a mini-assignment at the end? Like a lab of some sort, depending on the users knowledge they can participate or not. If they don't then whoever did can explain the way they went about it and so forth.

    Sign me up!

    Added everyone who sent me their info, nine people so far!

    @Santa - Yeah I was thinking that maybe we can find some lab/problem files for Packet Tracer, etc. and compare configs, etc. Be sure to send me your info and I'll add asap

    Sign me up!

    Taking CCENT on 03/18, just have a few protocols I need to review.

    Do we ask our questions on this thread or do we send emails?

    Any updates with this or did it simply die out?
