    Good luck Clyde!

    No I'm not off to Luton BTW. This Saturday I will be spending with the other half doing Christmas shopping. Oh the joy's of it.

    On Sunday I'll be hitting the books preparing for my CNAP Sem 4 Practical which I've got before Christmas.

    so far so good. The day schools give you a chance to play with the kit plus, you get access to 'netlabs' which allows planned exercises and free time to be had on real cisco kit - accessed remotely.

    The material is Networking Academy, so slightly different from CCNA, but it will teach you how to use the stuff. I can't vouch for how easy or hard it is as I knew some of this stuff already, but I'd say you would benefit from Network+ certification or equivalent before taking it, or else be prepared to put your thinking cap on and all the extras provided

    Hi Clive

    Thanks for the info. I just failed CCNA by about 5% before I took up my OU studies. When I saw that they were offering the course it naturally had to be on my "to do list". As I am doing the B Eng B24 I need 90 T course points doing T224 in Feb so this should fit in well.
