    Awesome thread. I'm getting ready to embark on this journey (6 months is the goal/requirement set) and it was nice to stumble onto a well organized post on how to do it!

    This weekend I'll be ordering a set off books (most likely these - Amazon Link) and trying to start on my lab. Luckily we have piles of 2960s at work so I'll be able to get those easily, not sure on the routers quite yet. Is the biggest requirement iOS 12.4? The reason I ask is I may be able to get newer equipment through work...

    Keep the updates coming!

    If you got links, suggestions, make them known! I'm trying to make a single source of information for CCENT/CCNA/None of the above!

    I drink black tea. It's been a while since I've had BAWLS, a couple months. Im not sure which to pick up actually - RootBeer, Original, or Cherry. I liked them all - except for the sugar free! AMP has been my staple drink for the latest. Monster isn't drinkable for me.

    I know it's been said but this is a great post. Thanks to this forum and members like you I have finally gotten off my arse to work on completing my CCNA studies by the end of this year. I check the forums daily and there is never a shortage of good help here. Thanks again for this post. I know plenty of people that aren't techexams members that I will be directing to it.

    Here's my small contribution (the more experienced ppls will probably chuckle at this). But I found it a useful setup for following ICND1 CBT Nuggets, especially the routing section. And it helps CLI practice in general.



    This virtual contraption I made from a Virtual Box XP machine (that has on it Tftpd32, Tera Term, Cisco SDM) attached as a "cloud" onto GSM3 topology as shown in the pic (which is pretty much the same as used by Jeremy Cioara throught the first CD of CBT Nuggets - I had to change some details). On the other end of topology I attached another cloud, this is a "Microsoft Loopback" interface (on the actual host PC) that is bridged onto the actual PC's Ethernet interface which is connected to the Internet.

    With this setup I am able to practice RIP, telnet and SSH, the use of SDM for setting up NAT, and the like. And, yes, tftp operations, as well. Now it all works a treat, but in order to set it up, I've had to jump through some hoops. (Note: there are some useful YouTube videos on setting GNS3 up. Search for them).

    (For anyone inexperienced who attempts similar use of GNS3 an important note - always run it as administrator. I've actually changed the properties of the GNS3 icon on my Win7 Desktop so that it will always start as run by admin. On the same note, if you add / change any interfaces on the host machine, you'll have to restart the PC, otherwise the GNS3 won't "know" about them).

    Well, so much for my lab fun for today, I've got to go back to now, this Odom book is endless.

    I did a boot camp for my CCNA (Which I need to renew) After I had finished it my head was a shed. But I had the hands on knowledge that I needed and a idea of what I understood and what I did not. I then spent a month and a half re-reading the CCNA Books and labbing my ass off.

    I had just left the military and not knowing any better I did the boot camp. To be fair am glad I did as it gave me a good grounding to plan my own studies.

    I am planning on labbing my ass off during my exploration course. I will have to get around to reading the books.

    I'm focused on getting my CCNA within 6 months. My current goal is to get a lab setup this week and begin my studies (GNS3 and 3 2960s sound ok?). I just received my book order from Amazon (went with the set from Odom) and also have the INE bootcamp downloaded. My goal for ICDN1 is to work through a chapter a night and pair that with a matching video and lab the next day. With 24 chapters in Odom's ICDN1 book that puts me at about a 48 days to get through all the material. Does that seem like a decent plan?

    ICDN1 in 50-55 days and then another 60 for ICDN2, which will leave me with some fudge factor if I get stuck on a subject or don't pass a test

    The best way I find is to watch the videos (if it's like CBT nuggets) first. They don't go into enough detail but are good at explaining the basics. I wouldn't set a 'chapter a night' target because some chapters are longer than others. I'd set a page target instead. That way you can target 60 pages for example and if you feel up to it you can read more. Some chapters you'll fly through and this method allows you to keep at your own pace but still maintain a minimum completion time.

    Slightly off-topic, Why isn't this thread stickied already?

    If you take pictures of your ccna pass score as santa. I will take my CCNA:Security as Link. Without the sword... or shield. pointy ears might count as weapons too, or cheating. But I doubt they have "ear shapes" as cheating.

    So...building out my lab I basically have my choice of switches. We have everything from 2950s up to 3750x's at my disposal. The problem is a lack of routers. If I take my workstation and slap 3 more NICs into it can I just run GNS3 and be done with the router piece?

    You certainly can. You miss out on the fun of WIC/NM cards and getting all the right cables though.

    If I didn't have such a tight deadline I'd love to do that. My plan is to use work equipment while I slowly phase in my own equipment. So GNS3 and work switches until I can buy my own equipment!

    Staticz, choose the 3750 to connect GNS3 to your other switches. You will thank me later.

    (To learn why and good ways to do so, Google 3750 & GNS3 & "breakout switch".)

    So instead of getting 3 NICs (one for each router) I can just use the 3750 and trunk back to my PC?

    EDIT: Ok the more I read about that...I'm pretty stoked to use it.
