The Cisco CCNA is one of the most widely recognised and respected qualifications in the IT industry. Every year, tens of thousands of people embark towards taking the exam via private study, Cisco Academy courses, or online training. The sad truth is most students quit along the way, and for those few who actually do attempt it, only 50% pass. All that time, effort, and money wasted! If there are so many manuals, CBT courses, lab simulators, exam engines, and study resources out there, then what goes wrong? This is the question Cisco trainer Paul Browning wanted to get to the bottom of. After interviewing thousands of students, he discovered that most people quit because they are simply overwhelmed with the sheer volume of material they need to digest and, of course, the large number of hands-on skills they need to be able to demonstrate in the exam. Add to that the day-to-day stresses of commuting to work, bringing up a family, and the distraction of everyday problems and challenges; it's no wonder people quit. This is where Cisco CCNA in 60 Days can help.Devised by two industry experts and countless Cisco students just like you, the 60-day programme breaks down every exam requirement into a daily study task. All you need to do is open the book at the relevant day (from 1 to 60), read the theory, and complete the lab. Every lesson is reviewed several times in the form of exam questions, review sessions, a handy exam cram guide, and, of course, hands-on labs for you to follow. You can choose to take the CCENT after the first 30 days and the ICND2 after the next 30 days, or you can take the CCNA after 60 days of study. Here is what is included in your study guide: 60 daily study tasks Full explanations of theory Real-world tips and advice Over 47 hands-on labs, plus 15 bonus CCENT and ICND2 labs CCENT and ICND2 cram guides Bonus VLSM guide Motivational goal-setting guide Downloadable videos Free support via www.in60days.com Author Paul Browning is a former police officer who used his CCNA qualification to help him make a career change to IT. He worked for Cisco in the UK for a while, and then went on to start his own Cisco training company, which he ran for 8 years before moving into online Cisco training.He is the author of several Cisco study guides.

AMAZON BESTSELLER Version 3 - Completely revised and updated for the new Cisco exams: 200-125 CCNA 100-105 ICND1 200-105 ICND2 This book has been used by thousands of Cisco students to study for their CCNA exams. Written by a CCNP and three CCIEs it's all you need to pass the new style exams. FREE SUPPORT The book is supported for free so just come over and register your copy to get free access to over $400 worth of videos, exams, cram guides - in60days.com/free/ccnain60days/ ABOUT THE BOOK Do any of the following problems sound familiar to you? "I just don't know where to start studying. I feel overwhelmed by the information." "I've bought all the CBT-style videos and books, and have even been on a course, but I don't feel ready to take the exam and I don't know if I ever will." "I've been studying for a long time now, but I haven't booked the exam yet because I just don't feel ready." For every ten students who start out towards the CCNA qualification, nine quit. They don't quit because of laziness but because they became overwhelmed with information and didn't even know where to start. They sat down to study from one of the 'big name' manuals and half an hour later found themselves staring blankly at the same page. Can you imagine how frustrating that feels? You see, most authors throw you in at the deep end and expect you to get on with it. They forget that you have a full-time job, a long journey back home, family commitments and any number of challenges going on in your life. The last thing you have time for is to write out a detailed study plan with plenty of review sessions. If only somebody could tell you what to study each day, every day. If only you could open your study guide and see which bit of theory to read, which lab to do and which exam to take. You could then get on with the task of studying and getting that exam nailed. This is where Cisco CCNA in 60 Days comes in. Written in response to feedback from thousands of students using my online CCNA in 60 days program, my classroom courses and my other online Cisco training websites this book is the final piece in the studying puzzle. HOW IT WORKS Every day you read your theory module, you review yesterdays lesson, do a lab and then answer some review questions. The next day you do the same until you reach the review sessions where you cement all your knowledge with more labs and review as well as some practice exams. If that wasn't enough, you have a cram guide to read daily and an online Subnetting review site to really hone your subnetting skills. At the 30 day mark you can take your CCENT exam and move into yourICND2 study sessions or just take your CCNA exam at the end of 60 days. If you fall behind no problem, just pick up where you left off. WHAT'S COVERED? Every subject Cisco want you to know for your exams is covered with labs, theory, exams, reviews and crams. From RIP to OSPF, from VLSM to CIDR, IPv4 to IPv6, STP to CDP. Every exam topic is covered in detail many times over.
