  • lots of stuff on CLN. https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/ccna

    and study group, discussion, login and search for "pass" under ccna discussions for tips

  • kenmine, I as well will be attempting my CCNA. I would ask, do you do cisco routing and switching daily? if yes, go after the 200-125. if no, (this is me) then you DEFINITELY NEED to take the 2 parts. You will learn more information and the tests are easier. It takes the same amount of preparation time for the two tests as it does for the one single test, but you will learn much more and have a greater understanding of what your are testing on. This will greatly prepare you for the CCNP if that is the route you want to take.

    Me personally, I watched Keiths INE videos on the separate tests and read Cisco Press cert guides by Wendell Odom. Between these two you should gain all your information. You still need more though. Either go on ebay and buy some routers and switches (I did something like this), or you INE Rack rentals. If you dont want the physical devices, do this. I used the rack rentals when I went to the bootcamp and I LOVED THEM! they cost about $3 an hour and if you buy the videos you will get about 50 tokens i Believe. You will want to practice test a bunch as well for this will get your mind into the deep understanding if you know this or not.

    i hope this helps.

    Good luck

  • best of all for practice is either GNS3 or UNL. both are free and ROI (in sense of time) is great for long run. These tools will help you up to CCIE level preps.
