    This sounds cool, I just downloaded the pdf and I'll look over it later and tell you what I think. I had an excellent Cisco teacher back in my college days.

    I was looking forward to reading it, but for some reason I can't open the pdf. Have you updated or made any changes to it lately? I'll try downloading it again.

    I just finished reading the guide.

    I'll start off from the beginning;;

    I read the entire thread here before reading the guide, and noticed that you mentioned "I'm only 21!" several times just in this thread. Okay, that's rather pretentious and kind of bothers me but I suppose you're proud, so thats good. Then I read the page long About Me where you're basically gloating about things once again and I had to say something.

    Just make the about me a bit more professional, IMO. It's great to be proud of something, but putting it in peoples faces isn't the best course of action.

    I'm 22, and I know 3 CCIE's, Americans, in America, under 25 -- well, they might be over 25 now, but they received theirs at 22-23. Also a JCIE too. Kids are getting their CCNA's in high school nowadays.

    Anyway, on to my editorial recommendations;;

    Page 7/8; There is the diagram at the very bottom with the processor information, and your breakdown is on the NEXT page. I'd recommend moving this image down to the page the details are on.. There is actually a good 70% of the page free. It'd be easier to read if these were together.

    Also make sure you do a contributions section, while this isn't a commercial guide, it's still respectful to recognize the people who have helped to provide additional content.

    Also, you might want to explain what WIC's are since you go so in depth with the IOS naming, and just toss out the "You'll need xyz IOS with this WIC to do xDSL." I'd imagine most people reading this would go....WIC? Candle? I'd also think a good section would be one on the various router/switches and features. As a newbie one fo the most confusing things to me was the various WICs and figuring out which router/swtiches to use out of the 30k you find googling.

    Well first off I am proud of my age and where I am at in life, not many can say they are in my shoes, being raised around technology, it has became my 2nd language. I am however disappointed in the field because many current employers do not recognize the potential of the comming generation.

    This guide was not meant to be a commercial guide, it started as a simple post and grew into several pages of helpful information. Unfortunately, this information was getting copied word by word onto other forums and other people claiming the work as their own, I was forced to secure this guide so recognition of its orgin is noted.

    When I retire my work on this guide, all materials and complete ownership will be given to johan.

    I am sure along your pursuit of your CCNA, you will learn what a WIC is, as well as the new 802 track clearly goes in depth of new integrated service routers, wireless, ipv6 and I beleive touches on IPv6 routing protocol technologies.

    I wrote this guide with the techexams community in mind. The material in this guide is simple material that I teach in my courses. While most of it is not required material to know for the CCNA, it is helpful in the field.

    With that being said, the credit goes to techexams.net community.

    But now that you've mentioned, my next section can be on general router descriptions, functions and limitations.

    So with that in mind, section 1.8 will discuss 2500, 2600, and 3600 series routers in detail. I may touch up with some switching technologies as well. I will have to dig out an old document I made for one of my previous courses discussing what 2500 series routers had what ports. This is very helpful.

    As for the empty space between sections, I do this to seperate each section and start with a clean page for the comming section. You are the first person to complain about this, ill take this into consideration.

    Also for the record, this guide reached 10,000 views according to freewebs

    Also I will revise some other parts of the guide and add a few things that people have suggested, such as dtlokee's post, and a few others.

    I always thaught this forum was designed to share information rather than building egos.Seems like you need to work on other area's rather than focusing 100% on tech stuff.

    As I said "I was forced to secure this guide so recognition of its orgin is noted."

    Is it such a bad ideal to direct traffic here?

    I find it interesting that every 2-3 weeks you post somthing about the upcomming releases to the guide to bump this thread back up to the first page.

    Who is driving traffic to who here? Techexams is driving the traffic to your guide, not the other way around, and you know this. You're trying to make a name for yourself and that' fine, but at the same time be honest about it.

    BTW: the guide is not secure, it can easily be decrypted.

    What one man can do another can undo

    Gentlemen, we've had enough of unprofessional comments in this forum recently, let's not start another one. Matt is trying to help and has something worth sharing. We were all young once, so cut him a little slack on any ego you percieve coming through.

    Carry on with courtesy please.

    I agree with sprkymrk, this negative energy is unnecceary. I simply try to help by providing what I know freely to benifit everyone.

    I am in the process of updating it with a new section that mrj would like to see, which has information about 2500, 2600 and 3600 series routers, wics, nms, aims, etc... Which will definately help in designing a lab. I hope to have this posted before the weekend is over.

    Also for fake Cisco "chisco" section, I still would like to do this but no one has provided me enough detailed pictures and I thank those who have provided what they can, this is greatly appreciated.

    As long as he remembers that when he becomes rich and famous.


    Matt and I pm-ed about this topic and his guide some time ago and I don't have any problems with how things are going right now. It doesn't exactly fit as the usual forum contents, so it is an exception to the rule, but I consider it a useful and original contribution for Cisco certification students in general. If he eventually wants to sign it over to us I'll be happy to put it online here, and it would remain in the same format (so not in a TechExams.net jacket for reasons I explained earlier in this topic).

    I'm working on a solution to make it easier for members to upload 'their own original' material and share it through TechExams.net (which basically means we host it, not publish it), of which Matt's guide would be a good example, but also Paul's subnetting chart, and dtlokee's access lists practice lab.
