    Good luck with the CCNA.


    Having been there, done it blah blah blah, can I recommend you get the Sybex book by Todd Lamle - Deluxe Edition. Read it, Read it & Read it again, do everything on the cd's -- & you will pass.

    Regards Scooby

    thanks scooby.. will take a look..

    we spent nearly 3 hours on binary hex and decimal conversions.. and as i had never really done it before.. it was all like whoa!! :cry: :cry:

    but after practising when i got home.. i seem to have figured it..


    does the math get much more intesne than this?

    Hi Omar,

    How is your Cisco Academy doing.

    Sorry for delay in reply. The Lammle book also covers all the Bin/Hex/Dec conversions you need.

    Also, learn to subnet -- in your head. (The lammle book is great for this; the academy course is dreadful.)
