How to Network Tip of the Week #53 – 11th September 2008
Welcome to the fifty third www.howtonetwork.net tip of
There is lots to tell you this week so please read the
Banish Cisco Exam Nerves Forever
I don’t often get excited but this week I have been very
very excited indeed.
I have found that the biggest reason you might fail the
exam is NOT lack of knowledge but exam nerves. You know,
the knot in the pit of your stomach as you drive to the
testing centre. Sweaty palms, shaking hands, nervous
The questions pop up and your mind goes blank. You read
all about OSPF but now the question is there you simply
can’t recall the information. That is $250 you couldn’t
afford to waste gone forever!
Well no more. I have hired the UKs top hypnotherapist to
record a Cisco exam success audio. If you listen to it
every evening you will feel motivated, focused and
confident when it comes to exam day. You may even find
yourself looking forward to it.
Best of all. It is free to members of www.howtonetwork.net

CCNA Simplified – Out Now
If you haven’t ordered your copy yet then it isn’t too
late. The first run of copies are now in the hands of
their proud owners.
CCNA Student Interviewed
I have started to interview students who have passed their
How did they fit time in for study? Was it as hard as
people say or not too bad? How did they cope during the
exam and does the ‘?’ key work on the router simulator
during the exam practicals.
All this and more on the podcast page and more interviews
The site is growing faster than I can keep up with it. I
am looking to hire writers for the below content. I will
let you know more next week but if you know anyone who
can write excellent quality content for me in easy to
understand language then please get them to contact me.
CCNP – All 4 modules
CCNA – Security
CCNA – Wireless
CCNA – Voice
I will be posting an official advert on Elance later in
the week. All applicants must come via that advert. I will
want to see a 5 page sample of their writing if they apply.
Pass Your CCNA in 60 Days
The pilot team have started on their 5 day prep sessions
and then will move onto the full 60 day programme.
Once I have some feedback I will be going live so the
rest of you can get your studies on track. You can
pre-register for the programme via the below link and
of course there is no charge at all for this. If you want
to do anything to help me then please tell your friends.
Coming to Boston – USA
I will be in Boston MA for an internet marketing conference
from 2-7th October. If any of you live around there we
can catch up for a coffee.
I will be looking to do some sight seeing as well.
Cisco Exam Syllabuses
We have added clickable Cisco syllabuses to the site. This
means you can follow your study time in line with how
Cisco are going to structure your exam questions.
I have noticed that there are a couple of areas which
they appear to have left vague and there are a few other
areas which we don’t have labs for (such as RSTP+). I
really don’t think you would ever be asked to configure
some of the stuff they are asking for in the exam but we
will endeavour to add more content nonetheless.
