    And said about needing to know logarithms to make life 'easier' doing CISCO.

    Now. I'm not the sharpest tool in the drawer when it comes to maths; after GCSE, I let that particular blade go a bit blunt. And I'd like to brush up before I get to the CCNA/CCNP so that I don't hit a stumbling mountain in my studies. So, you qualified bods out there: what maths is useful to have?

    (we'll work on the basis that I know basic algebra...I can remember trig. Just.)

    Binary and hex are a good place to start, start here:

    I don't know about the higher Cisco certs, but subnetting was the only real "numbers" work I needed to do for the CCNA.

    Thanks for the link, and the relief.

    I may just make my fella teach me logs though. He knows 'em, and hates 'em. And it's not only men that can glaze over and look like they're paying attention :twisted:

    I did (and passed) cisco network and design exams upto and including CCIE written, and I cant say there was anything more fancy mathwise than binary/hex type stuff, mostly do do with subnetting
    not sure where you got your info from :)

    From the sounds of things, a troublesome and mischievous friend. People that know me, know that me and maths mix as well as Marmite and beetroot. Without cajoling, limitless effort, and a small pixie called Gertrude.

    Have you been smoking funny weeds again or is this another example of "UK-isms" that I again fail to understand? :oops:

    Funny weed? I've never touched the stuff! And no UKisms. Just an insane 21 year old that watches too much sarcastic television.

    Cisco Academy stuff covers the basics or logarithms but it's only as background info in relation to signal strength etc.

    Not required to configure a router or do IP!

    Don't worry about it.
