    it is too wide and deep - i had to look outside of lab materials to go and prep for this and use some practice questions and it was like "thats very deep of them to ask..."

    true, after all of that, it kinda feels a bit hollow, especially for me as i did cos work needs it to maintain gold partnership with cisco and i need to do a further one that is a specialist cisco cert (another feather in the cap, so why not).

    to add to aderon, DONT USE THE OCG - INSTEAD USE THE 31 DAYS TO SECURITY that i mentioned earlier - it saved me! and also use the portable command study guide and Chris Bryant's material - it is still based on the old exam, but as he says, it covers 70% of the CURRENT EXAM!

    i dont bother with CBT nuggets now - love jeremy and keith, but the whole thing is very high level and not enough really except for revision - sort of.

    SAFARIBOOKSONLINE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND - i use throwawaymail to get email addresses and just keep doing trials (so no paying at all for a week)


    for the practical side, get the demo copy of asdm, cos you need to know how to use it in the exam! and get access to switches and routers as well - ie learncisconet let you use them for free

    @aderon, what is your linkedin as i want to keep in contact with you

    Safari Books Online is amazing. My exam is scheduled for next Wednesday, so I'm going to skim 31 Days Before Your CCNA Security Exam.

    A few of us were lucky enough to grab it while it was $350. I'm not sure what lead Cisco to hike up their prices so much. All of their courses have nearly doubled in price. I remember their CCNA courses for v2 were $499 each at one point in time. The v3 courses are now $1000 each! So looks like I'm going the book/video route.
