Get Your CISCO CCNA or CCNP

A lot of people ask me how to get certified in CISCO. Here are my recommendations for your studies.

Cheers!

FIRST:
Go to this site.

Build an account.
Go to the free CCNA streaming broadcast.
That is about 30 hours of free education.
I paid for this class years ago.
It is worth $2000 if you take the class in person.
This will give you a taste of what the technology is about.
The material in this class is the first CISCO exam to earn the CCNA.

SECOND:
The emulator/lab tool is:
http://networksims.com/

This installs on Windows and has a lot of labs. This does CCNA and CCNP and other emulations.

This site has a free CCNA lecture series. Just register and watch online or download them:

GNS for building labs. You’ll need a strong computer system to run this on, and a copy of the CISCO IOS for the device you are trying to emulate.
