101 Labs for the Cisco CCNA Exam
Your Cisco CCNA or CCENT exam score is made from half theory points and half hands on practical labs. The key to passing your exam is having a good quality theory guide (or site like this) AND a comprehensive hands on resource. Most books just give you one lab per subject but this falls a long way short of preparing you for the three or so hands on labs you will experience during your CCNA or CCENT exams.We hear this story all the time on our forums 'I failed the exam today. I got stuck on the simlet and ran out of time. I am gutted.'Don't make the same mistake 50% of CCNA exam takers make. They underestimate how hard the exam practicals are and how little time they have to complete them.
Some of your practical labs will feature multiple technologies such as NAT and EIGRP (for example). You will also be expected to look at network topologies and diagnose faults both quickly and accurately. 101 Labs for the Cisco CCNA Exam will give you the speed and confidence you need to quickly and easily sail through any practical test. You will also be able to apply your skills to a live network or in any hands on test for job interviews. You will be laying a strong foundation for other Cisco exams such as CCNP and the coveted CCIE.
In order to get the most out of the labs, please print out the lab requirement and complete as much as you can. Then follow through the solution using live equipment. If you get stuck then please watch an expert on the video walk you through step-by-step. Please note that you will not get the same result on products such as packet tracker or route simulators.
Each lab is graded out of 10 for difficulty and marked if it is for the CCNA or CCENT. Any lab marked for CCENT can also be tested in the CCNA as well.
