How to Network Tip of the Week #46 – 24th July 2008
Welcome to the forty-sixth www.howtonetwork.net tip of
Live Rack is Still Live
In case you missed the announcement last week, the live
rack of Cisco routers and switches is now operational. If
you want to take advantage of the 15 hours instead of 10
on the rack you need to join the site before the end of
You will need to complete 7 short lessons on how to use
your rack then fill in the form and your account will be
set up for you.
Here is the live Cisco rack site:
And here are the training pages. You must complete the
training before your rack account is allocated.
One last thing. There are sure to be a few bugs in there
still so if you find one, please let us know.
YouTube Cisco Videos
I have added a couple of videos to Youtube. One on password

New CCNA Study Guide
I am putting the finishing touches to a 600 page CCNA study
guide based upon the www.howtonetwork.net website. It will
contain all the things you need to know to pass your CCNA
and CCENT plus over 26 hands on labs. The advantage to you
to having the manual is that you can read it anywhere since
you can pop it in your bag.
I absolutely guarantee it will be the best CCNA study guide
you have ever seen or I give you your money back.
The proofs are due early next week and then it will be
available to you about a week after that I hope.
10 Reasons Why You Must Pass Your CCNA
Yes, I know you have been meaning to get on with passing
your CCNA. You have some books and maybe a few other study
tools but you never seem to be able to knuckle down and
follow the study plan you keep meaning to write.
Now is the best time for you to pass your CCNA. There are
big transitions taking place in the global economy at the
moment and the certified engineer will always have the
advantage over the person who says he or she can do the
job but has never bothered to take the exam to prove it.
Here are a few reasons you need to get certified ASAP:
Well done to Wayne McEvans who passed his CCENT last week
with a perfect score of 1000.
Wayne said ‘just to let you know I passed my CCENT with an
unbelievable score of 1000, it looks as all the sleepless
nights have been worth it thanks for your help i feel a
lot more comfortable now.’
With the right materials and some determination you can
pass your CCNA and CCENT.
Well done Wayne.
Buddy – Can You Spare Me a Link?
I am still very keen to hear from those of you who are
webmasters for good quality web sites.
howtonetwork.net is flying up the Google listings and that
is a good thing.
I am wondering if you have access to a good quality web
site where you can add a link to point to us. If you
fulfil the below criteria please let me know and we can
work out a win/win with either extended membership of
the site or extra rack credits.
If you have a .gov or a .edu domain then I will be
especially interested in chatting with you.
