    Hello all

    Passed the CCNA today. Basically, between 2004-06 I took the academy course, passing INTRO with 90% after semester 2 and failing ICND in May 06 with 77% (I was gutted. very hard exam).

    Last month, I finally motivated myself to get certified, so I booked the full thing (ICND scared me). 1 month of studying (although I found it hard to commit time) with the McGraw/Hill book as my main material and I passed it today with 87%.

    My main reason for posting is to give the McGraw hill book a big two thumbs up. Very understandable and clear studying material and I would recommend it to all here.

    So yeah, now for my MCDST and CCNP/CCSP

    1 thing though. McGraw hill seems to think there are 5 TCP/IP model layers...strange, but apart from that, everything is top notch.

    Congrats!

    Yep, as Sam60 mentioned, don't confuse the TCP/IP model with the OSI model...

    hehe I know all i need to know about the OSI, however I thought the TCP/IP model was only 4 layers?

    Application
    Transport
    Internet
    Network Access?

    Im sure thats what the Cisco Academy course teaches...

    And yep, thats the book.

    One question. How long is it before the certificate actually gets to you usually?

    EDIT: Actually looking at the wiki for the TCP/IP model, it states there a 4 and 5 layer versions. Highly confusing, and very inconsistent to test on.

    In the 5 layer model, the Network access layer is replaced by the Physical and Data Link layers.

    There is also the original ARPAnet model (RFC 871), that desribes a THREE layer model.

    Remember though, these are only learning tools, not actual Implementations. The acual protocls within the layers for a given implementation are what is important.

    EDIT: Whoops, Congrats on the pass and the best of luck with the rest.

    hehe thanks, but nevermind anyway, HOPEFULLY I won't need to think about that model again for a while now
