    Default Subnetting: Wendell Odom vs CBT's Jeremy Cioara

    I have read through Wendell Odom's CCENT book (Official Exam Certification Guide)
    a couple times.

    I have now gone through the CBT nugget videos by Jeremy Cioara.

    on the topic of subnetting, I noticed Wendells book goes into great detail and there are some topics he gets on that Jeremy does not.

    one is Boolean ANDing
    the other is VLSM

    CBT Jeremy says you dont need to know VLSM until ICND2 and manages to explain subnetting without mentioning Boolean ANDing.

    If I am comfortable with the way Jeremy teaches subnetting should I just go with it?

    using the book it takes me much longer to get familiar with the described subnetting techniques, probably because every step has to be written down and a video can go through it much faster.

    Use as many sources as possible until you feel completely comfortable with it and can subnet in your head....

    I had read many different opinions on how to do it, but this one drove it home for me.

    once you have the concepts down, then you need to practice, practice, practice.

    Subnetting clicks differently for different people. If you are comfortable that you are quick, accurate and have it all covered, why learn a different way ?

    Subnetting is something that will be at the core of your networking brain throught your career so having a mechanism that sits well with you personally is most important.
