CCNP Changes

If you're interested in earning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) certification, you should read about changes in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cert. This TCPmag.com article is a nice summary. Basically Cisco removed some old material and added a lot more on security, wireless, and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r modern topics. I would like to test for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNP before my CCNA expires in March 2008, but I'll wait until updated study books are available.

Todd Lammle Teaches CCNA in Denver in June

You may have followed my recent journey towards passing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA exam. My instructor Todd Lammle just told me he will be teaching anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r CCNA class in Denver, from 13 to 17 June. This is a rare event as Todd runs cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 training company GlobalNet Training and stays very busy.

Todd is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 author of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best-selling CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate, Deluxe Edition (640-801), 4th Ed which helped immensely. I highly recommend attending this class if you want to pass your CCNA. If you decide to go, please email me at taosecurity at gmail dot com. I would like to hear what you think of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 class.

Passed My CCNA Test

I just finished testing for my Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. I passed with a 973 out of 1000. The test was 90 minutes long and I finished with only 8 minutes to spare. I think I missed one question, maybe two. The exam was as tough as I expected, meaning it was not easy. I know it was difficult since I usually breeze through majority multiple-choice exams. (For example, I answered all 250 questions on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CISSP exam in 90 minutes, and walked out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 door.)

cannot say enough about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA class I took with Todd Lammle at GlobalNet Training. He was not kidding when he said students need to know everything he writes in his slides and says while teaching. I was amazed how much of my knowledge Cisco managed to test with a 55 question exam. Also, if I did not know Todd's block size method of IP subnetting, I do not think I would have finished cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 test in time.

If you want to pass cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA, I recommend cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following:

1. Take GlobalNet Training's CCNA class. I do not think you will find anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r training source who provides as much gear for each student to configure. The labs are first-rate.

2. Read Todd's book.

3. Practice using Todd's CertSim software. This was invaluable because it taught me to slow down and be more careful. I learned this lesson even though I only had a chance to use cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 software once, 2 hours before my test. I blazed through cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 simulation and scored only a 749 -- 100 points too low to pass! I vowed to be more careful on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 real exam, and it payed off.

4. Practice configuring real Cisco gear, and use Todd's RouterSim Network Visualized software. I did not get a chance to play with this much outside of class, but it's a great way to build, configure, and test Cisco gear in a virtual environment.

5. For deeper knowledge, check out Alex Zinin's book.

Later this year I plan to start working towards cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNP.

Review of CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate, Deluxe Edition (640-801), 4th Ed Posted

Amazon.com just posted my five star review of CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate, Deluxe Edition (640-801), 4th Ed. From cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 review:

"Last week I attended Todd Lammle's CCNA class, where I received a free copy of his 'CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate, Deluxe Edition (640-801), 4th Ed' (CCNADE4E). Todd's class was excellent, and his book is almost literally Todd in written form. There is hardly a wasted word in this book. If Todd mentions a detail concerning a protocol or a certain default value in a configuration parameter, it's important. If he calls out that same item in a 'Note', it's definitely important. This is not 'teaching to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 test' -- it's ensuring students and readers are familiar with material Cisco considers relevant. Cisco started its certification program to ensure administrators could properly configure and deploy its gear. By reading CCNADE4E, you will gain that knowledge."

I test Wednesday afternoon. I'll report cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 results.

Notes from CCNA Class

I'll be leaving for my CCNA class shortly. Yesterday we discussed changes brought about by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 introduction of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ip subnet-zero feature. This allows a subnet like 172.16.0.0/19 to be valid. According to Cisco:

"It should be noted that even though it was discouraged, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire address space including subnet zero and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 all-ones subnet have always been usable. The use of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 all-ones subnet was explicitly allowed and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 use of subnet zero is explicitly allowed since Cisco IOS Software Release 12.0. Even prior to Cisco IOS Software Release 12.0, subnet zero could be used by entering cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ip subnet-zero global configuration command."

Apparently cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA objectives now recognize cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 use of subnet zero, and Cisco expect students to calculate hosts and subnets appropriately. Previous CCNA objectives did not recognize subnet zero.

I also learned that material on OSPF, previously found mainly in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNP exam, is now part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA objectives. This would seem to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA test more difficult. I am not overly concerned, since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA objectives no longer force students to learn IPX, AppleTalk, and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r seldom-seen protocols.

On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA Road

This morning I began training to test for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. I am in a class offered by GlobalNet Training in norcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rn Virginia. My company ManTech agreed to pay my way, as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y support sending engineers to a week's worth of training per year.

My instructor is Todd Lammle, author of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 recently updated CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate, Deluxe Edition (640-801) study guide. Two weeks ago I saw Todd was personally teaching this class, so I immediately signed up. I'm probably not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 easiest student to have in a networking class. When Todd asked if HTTP uses TCP, I felt it necessary to mention Universal Plug and Play Protocol (UPNP) which runs HTTP over UDP. I also mentioned that DNS uses TCP to answer queries when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 response is larger than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 512 byte limit on UDP responses. Todd's tolerating me so far, but he said I have to provide a copy of my book. :)

Why am I studying for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA? Once in a while I find myself working on Cisco routers and switches, and it's been almost seven years since my last formal training on eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r platform. I believe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 CCNA is a fairly well-respected certification, as far as entry-level certs go. By attending this class I also get a free copy of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 latest deluxe study guide edition, which is tough to pass up when you're a book reader and reviewer!

Todd told me today that he's sold somewhere between 600,000-700,000 copies of his study guides over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last five years. That is absolutely amazing, considering that a technical book which sells more than 10,000 copies is regarded as a big hit. I will be reading and studying this book in preparation for my CCNA exam, which I plan to take some time next week. Todd is an excellent instructor, and he's already improved my subnet addressing skills by an order of magnitude. In ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r words, subnet questions which might have taken 60 seconds to answer will probably take about 6 seconds. This speed increase is important, as candidates have about a minute to answer each question. They can't return to skipped questions, so it pays to answer as rapidly as possible.
