    Hi

    Just signed up and there is a message saying "Why not make your first post today" and the only way I can think of getting rid of it is to post something........ :biggrin

    I am 31, I am from Lichfield in Staffordshire, England. I have worked for ISP's for a number of years and have worked with all kinds of technologies, networks and computer systems.

    I am currently looking to get my CCNA at the moment and discovered this forum.

    I tried to get my CCNA January last year and failed, but not by much. My confidence took a hit and I never re-took it, though now I realise that was a mistake as I forgot most of what I learned, I should have just carried on till I passed. The fundamaentals I am fine with, its all the piles of dry information that gets me there is just so much you have to remember :(

    I have been offered a promotion, it is mine if I want it, but the pre-requisite is a CCNA so I really need to get my arse in gear. I have the books for the Intro and the ICND exams and these are only valid exams till November so I have a really short timescale to achieve what I need and get this promotion.

    I am hoping to try and incorporate some memory teqniques to help me remember stuff, such as loci and linking and others I have read about to help, but I'm not sure if this will help in hte timescale I have.

    Anyway, thats me :blink

    I really hope that this site and all it's fine patrons can help me in my hour of need :biggrin

    Welcome!

    The majority of the concepts in INTRO and ICND are retained for the new versions of the exams (new CCNA, ICND1, ICND2). They'll be missing some things, such as wireless and IPv6, but a lot of it will be the same.

    Best of luck!
