    Just wondered if anyone has any advice on revising for my CCNA (Intro) to cement my knoledge.

    I've read the cisco press book and all the way through it it's all be fairly straight-forward.

    Now i've finished it and was wondering what to do now. Read each chapter seperately, then answer the end of chapter questions along with some online ones?

    Any advice would be great - i've never been the revising type :oops:

    Should i be booking my test just now?

    Yeah i have 3 2500 series routers and 2 1900 series switches, but i dont really think they'll be that much use for the intro exam. It's more stuff like which protocols work on which OSI layer levels and which protocols are used in a dsl modem that i'm concerned about.

    Not that i have any problems with stuff like that... It's just remembering it all thats the problem.

    Hi surfer_rosa,

    The first advice I would give is to get the CCNA Library, not for the CCNA INTRO as that is just learning about networking, that can be found anywhere.

    The CCNA library has a good Lab simulation for you to practice with. Finally the best advice is to visit the CCNA Prep Centre on the Cisco education site.

    You will meet a knowledgeable forum (Cisco qualified moderators) and also be able to access a lot of freebies as well as being totally up-to-date.

    No insult is meant to any people on this forum but that is the place to go for CCNA prep.

    surfer_rosa,

    When you look at http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/current_exams/640-821.html , does it look like English or Greek? If Greek, keep studying. If English, then prepare for some questions.

    Yeah that's one hell of an irony- I remember revising for my CCNA and waiting aeons for the Cisco prep centre website to chug along from page to page..

    Have you tried celtic rover as well?

    http://www.thebrightsparkshome.com/CCNAExamStack.aspx

    Very hard theory questions and tutorials. Do the questions and brush up on where you fall short.

    Apart from that the prep centre is very good. I used Boson questions as well.

    Here's another good site for reading around the subjects:

    Good luck

    Yeah very ironic :biggrin

    I've done a couple of the celtic rover questions, haven't found them too bad which is probably a good thing. And cheers for that last link. I'd found that page when looking for something else - i knew it was firewall.something but couldn't remember what :salut
