    I'm studying the same exam I have been for about 4 years now, CCNA! lol.
    I say I have been studying it for 4 years, I started, as wanted to move into Networks, then got the move without doing the exam, so not needed to certify since, but now due to job issues shall we call then looks like I need to find a new role so back on to it! Yay!
    Sounds interesting! Gotta love EDx!

    I purchased the CCNA Security course when I got the CCNA R&S course last year as it was on special offer. Chris Bryant's courses are awesome. I listen mostly to his videos on my phone while I commute to and from work. How are you tackling the CCNA? Are you going to do the two exam route or just go for the single composite exam?

    VMware Exams, VCP-NV, VCP6-Cloud, VCP6-DCV and VCAP-DCA.

    I will probably do the VCP-NV in a couple of weeks, followed by the DCA or Cloud exam I think.

    Also interested in the LPIC1 just for fun and maybe at some point the CCNA.

    I will go the two exam route. Although I have been working in networking for a couple of years now, I haven't sat a Cisco exam before so want to make sure I give myself plenty of time to do what I need to do. lol.

    I have the Chris Bryant videos as well, actually have CCNA, CCNA Sec and CCNP bought so planning on cramming a bit during this year to hopefully be well on my way to CCNP by year end, but will see how it goes. Currently needing to look for a new job so studying further up might take a bit of a back seat for a while. Defo need to get my CCNA out of the way though.

    That's good that you already have experience with Networking; that should help out a lot. The best of luck with the CCNA. Let me know if you need any advice/help with any questions :)

    Yeah I'm not expecting to have too many issues with it, know my way round pretty well.

    CCNA Security might be a different story though when I start that bad boy! Lol.

    70-410 is the current flavour of the year, with maybe a drop of PRINCE 2 at somepoint soon. Really need to clean my decks of small jobs that are hanging around so I can get my new test rig sorted out.

    Hi All
    has anyone taken the above exam? Can anyone recommend any good resources other than CBT Nuggets please? Work give me full access to those, and I've found some study guides on the MS site, but just wondered if anyone could recommend anything.
    Thanks
    James
