How to Network Tip of the Week #97 – 30th July 2009
Welcome to the ninety seventh www.howtonetwork.net tip of
Welcome to another weekly tip.
I’ve just realised that I am two tips away from 100 tips!
That is a wake up call for me. 100 weeks of sending out
this weekly tip.
Since the first tip the site has really evolved and we
have had well over 100 students contact us to say they
have passed their exam. I suspect a lot more have passed
and not told me.
This weeks tip is pretty short because I am filming CCNA
videos for 8 hours per day at the moment.
CCNA Security Labs Done
We have a CCNA security course running this coming weekend
in Milton Keynes so we decided to do the labs first.
The labs will be added to the site in about a weeks time
once our coder has finished adding the 25 or so new CCNP
As the theory is done we will add one module at a time. I
really do encourage you to take your security exam and
also your CCNP if you want a long term career as a Cisco
Note on Practice Exam Scores
There is only one reason people fail the CCNA or any other
Cisco exam. No matter what they say such as:
Ran out of time
Couldn’t get the network up
Didn’t understand the question
Nerves got the better of me
Got stuck in multi-part question

What to do After Your CCNA
So when you pass and have your shiny certificate hanging
on your wall what next?
More exams? Go for jobs? Have a rest?
Here is what I think:
Note on the Live Racks

wish. You do need to type the command out in full:
and so on.
New CCNP BSCI Labs
We have reviewed the current BSCI labs and want to make
some improvements. After speaking to Farai..our dual CCIE
he felt that they needed improving on.
To this end, next week we will be upgrading some, removing
some and adding another 15 or so. Please keep a look out
on the BSCI labs page for those.
Once they are all up we will be filming the videos.
101 Labs Book
I have filmed 50 of the 101 labs. The other 50 should be
done for next week. Once we get the book cover done it
will be ready.
I’m hoping for around 2 weeks time.
Free Rack Hours
Thanks to Doleman who asked a question about the
port security command.
