How to Network Tip of the Week #52 – 4th September 2008
Welcome to the fifty second www.howtonetwork.net tip of
Where did August Go?
Who stole August? It was there a minute ago. I just went
off to Starbucks to get a coffee and it went? Sheesh. Well
then, it must mean autumn is on the way and if the
weather is bad you might as well stay in and study for
your CCNA. It is either that or watch re-runs of Friends.
CCNA Simplified – Out Now
Finally. I feel like early retirement. Writing the CCNA
Study Guide was easy. The hard part was all the cover
design, typesetting and then setting up the distribution.
CCNA Simplified is in my opinion the best CCNA study guide
available. I have stripped away all the useless jargon and
irrelevant information you get in most CCNA manuals and
left a manual designed to not only get you through your
CCNA exam but give you the confidence to use your skills
on a live network.
You also receive over $400 in study software including my
CCNA cram guide, flash study cards, practise exams, videos,
seven mini-quizzes and the Subnetting Cheat Chart I
created which lets you answer any subnetting question in
the CCNA or CCENT exam in a few seconds.
For those who have not joined the site yet, there is a
special offer if you decide to do so. You get 20 rack
hours instead of 10 so when you join, buy the book and drop
me an e-mail.
Members price is £27 in the UK and $47 US dollars. If
you buy the book as a member you also get an extra 10
rack hours so drop me an e-mail once your order goes in.
Make sure your rack account is set up if you haven’t
gotten round to doing that yet.
Non-members price is £37 in the UK and $67 in US dollars.
We can deliver at the moment to the UK, USA, Canada and
Australia. If you live elsewhere, please drop us an
e-mail and we can calculate postage and add it to the
Please let us know if anything is not clear on the order
page or if you experience any problems whilst ordering.
I have tested the pages and links but there may be
something I have missed.
Thanks to all of you who visited the below site and filled
in the feedback. No doubt you are now enjoying your exam
or cram cards.
Pass Your CCNA in 60 Days
I have chosen the pilot team now.
We will be going ahead in a few days and once the scheme
has been tested it will be going live for you. For those
of you who are struggling to get some structure to your
studies or find the time then this programme will be
a massive help to you.
CCNP Boot Camp
We have a Cisco CCNP boot camp starting in November this
year. Any reader of this newsletter can come on the CCNA
weekend for no charge when they book on the CCNP. That
means you save £397 and you still have plenty of time to
pass your CCNA in time for the CCNP.
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.
