Welcome to the sixty-first www.howtonetwork.net tip of
Phew…just over seven weeks to Christmas! Arrggghh. But
if you want to set a goal and work hard for a few weeks
you could be a CCNA or CCENT well before that.
More Students Passing
Congrats to Daniel Collins who passed his CCNA with 930
and Nigel Edwards who also passed his CCNA.
New CCNA Audio Cram
The new version of the CCNA audio cram guide is out in
mp3 format. You can download it at the download centre
and happily listen to it whilst driving, on the train or
enjoying your morning workout.
New YouTube Videos
There is a cool new intro to our YouTube videos. I love it
and I hope you do too. This is the first of many videos
showing you the most useful commands you will need to know
as a CCNA and how to use them on a live network.
Cisco SDM Simulator
Thanks to James Carroll, one of our most active students
who found a great SDM emulator which you can download
and use for no charge at all. And it is supplied by Cisco
themselves so you can be sure the quality and features
will be great.
This is a great way to get some SDM hands on experience
for your CCNA exam.

Any comments or suggestions for the next version is very

Live Cisco Racks
Due to lack of use, I am going to have to open the live
Cisco racks to the general public. I aim to open them up
in the next few weeks.
There are over 60 empty rack hours every day between the
three racks so you should still have no problems booking
a session. If they get too busy I will close applicants or
add more racks.
There are now only 2 places left on my private coaching
programme. It includes 100 hours on the rack plus a set
of CD ROMs with over 7 hours CCNA videos. Not to forget,
phone coaching from me to get you through your CCNA ASAP.
If you want to snap up one of the last places and pass
your CCNA this side of Christmas then please visit the
CCNA Simplified – Out Now
