    I am looking to obtain my ccna and I have not taken any cisco courses or anything and was curious if there is a rough estimate of time one would expect it to take to be well prepared for the ccna? This aside from the common factors or a persons learning potential and the speed at which someone learns. Just a rough estimate is what I am hoping for. Thanks.

    I have decided to start looking into the ccna and would like to know what people have used and thought was helpful in passing the ccna exam. I do have access to the cisco academy training site and all of their materials but was just wanting to see if there are any other study materials that might be helpful??? Thanks.

    I would suggest you look at cisco press (www.ciscopress.com) for books - it all depends on which route you going to take: 1 or 2 exams or cisco academy, on the books you need. The site is very helpful in which books are need. Also look at www.cisco.com for more info on the options for ccna.

    As far as i have heard CCNA requires alot of hands on so i think you should also look into investing in routers and switches - if someone could help out here on the kinds need plz? I think your best places to look would be ebay and www.ciscokits.com

    Go with Cisco Press mate, they're the dog's wotnots for the Cisco Certs!

    For an overview the CCNA for dummies book was good reading for me. Lacks technical depth though.

    Would say more, just been a looooong day.
