    Cisco certification candidates, particularly CCNA candidates, must master binary math. This includes basic conversions, such as binary-to-decimal and decimal-to-binary, as well as more advanced scenarios involving subnetting and VLSM.

    There's another conversion that might rear its ugly head on your Cisco exam, though, and that involves hexadecimal numbering.

    Newcomers to hexadecimal numbering are often confused as to how a letter of the alphabet can possibly represent a number. Worse, they may be intimidated - after all, there must be some incredibly complicated formula involved with representing the decimal 11 with the letter "b", right?

    Wrong.
