    Long (read VERY) day. It's one of those work days where you would prefer it to be Friday. I'm hoping I can muster up a little bit of study time tonight.

    The Todd Lammle CCNA book came in the mail today. This has me excited and I'm feeling the urge to get the CCENT out of the way. I'm going to book an exam date tonight after my studies

    Back to the books...

    Tech Republic Subnetting B Class article is very good. While the teacher was teaching the class how to do it I just read that while she was talking and understood it.

    Another night of Subnetting. I'm becoming sick of seeing 1s and 0s like I have never been before... It seems to be sinking in though.

    I tried Boson a little yesterday and was frustrated by some of the networking questions. That is some hard stuff!

    I've learned a valuable lesson tonight that I would like to pass on to every other Cisco newb. Don't try to avoid binary! Once you learn to subnet using binary everything starts to make sense! I'm getting to the point where I can look at an IP address and see 1s and 0s.

    I have the rest of this week off. I'm going to take full advantage of this time and study commands and subnetting.

    Exam is scheduled for 4/13

    I'm gearing up for the exam as well. At the point where I'm starting the practice exams and hitting the labs hard. Hopefully will schedule the ICND1 before months end.

    Keep on keepin on but make sure you give your brain a little rest here and there.

    Default Ya, Good luck

    I'm also trying to get as much study time in as I can and I, like you, have a family. I was working 2 junk jobs (50-60 hours a week) to make my ends meet. When we got our taxes back I payed 2 months of bills in advance and quit my day job so I can spend my days studying. It's great right now but man, I better make this work QUICK!

    Anyways, as far as subnetting goes, here's what I found. Learn the binary first! You HAVE to understand that. Once you "get" the binary part, then the thread on this forum "Subnetting made easy" really made most everything click for me. And as far as it not covering the "hosts/subnets" questions, it actually does. Just read like 4 comments down. Infact reading that entire thread is well worth it. After 4-5 days of practicing I can now go to IP Subnet Practice and do them in my head and get them right every time.

    Anyways, again, good luck. I'm taking the 1 part test the first week in May.

    I'm finding my ability to add quickly is lacking...

    Anyhow, I'm going through the ExamCram book and than plan on hitting the Chris Bryant chapters on commands. Practice time here I come...

    Just realized I don't need to add every stinking number...

    Yes, if you know the power of two it just works!

    LOL, you guys have been trying to tell me this stuff for a while, but now it just makes sense. I feel like it all just fell in place now.

    Congrats, you've arrived. It's funny how we can all express a sentiment similar to this about the "clicking" effect.

    Finishing off reviewing the Todd Lammle's book. Going to look through the ExamCram after that than finish with Chris Bryant. I have to say that of three I've used Chris Bryant's material is the best.

    My weaknesses:

    • Frame Relay
    • WAN configuration
    • Troubleshooting network (Improving my subnetting skills has helped with this)

    Man... I finally got to some hardware at school in the lab and boy was I in for a treat with Frame Relay. I hadn't had a chance to configure it it it was one of those things I STILL have to get used to. Seeing as you can't turn a router into a Frame Relay switch in Packet Tracer, I gave GNS3 a try and spent A WHILE configuring the many different options. While I have only used GNS3 for a very short time, I feel that I am not really as held back as I was when all I had was packet tracer.

    When I was taking my CCNA, WAN was my weakpoint. Frame Relay dominated me. It is worth taking the time to get down, the best solution for all of those is to LAB LAB LAB!

    Oh man, don't you just love it when the light bulb pops on above your head when it all makes sense?

    Lab, Lab, Lab and keep up on the subnetting.

    Veritas,
    Hopefully you're busy celebrating. I'm up to chapter 9 in the Odom ICND1 book and finding packet tracer sorely lacking to learn switch configs. I've got a couple 2950 switches but work is hectic right now. Actually some days we're busting a@@ and other days I have my book with me to fill the idle time. I'm trying to finish up my Capstone during my free (what there is) time. Can't take a laptop to work or use the internet there as I'm not clearedso all my off time is used to try to finish WGU.
    I don't actually work for NASA but I'm a contractor hired by a recruiting firm that subcontracts through CSC and we're doing work at a DHS datacenter that's at the Stennis space center. They tested a rocket engine on site yesterday and the building where I'm at (probably a couple miles from the test site) was shaking a little.

    Nice job earweed.
    Guys, if you need any help learning the stuff, just give me a shout. Apparently I'm not a bad teacher.

    Well I'm back on board. I skimmed Todd Lammle's book yesterday to see what I remember. I've decided to start with Subnetting, and then move into commands, etc. OSI, TCP Three-Way, etc. I still remember well from Network+ and college.
