Product Description

Product Description


Completely revised and updated for the new Cisco exams:

200-120 CCNA
100-101 ICND1
200-101 ICND2

This book has been used by thousands of Cisco students to study for their CCNA exams. Written by a CCNP and three CCIEs it's all you need to pass the new style exams.


The book is supported for free at www.in60days.com so just come over and register your copy to get free access to over $400 worth of videos, exams, cram guides and a friendly forum.


Do any of the following problems sound familiar to you?

“I just don’t know where to start studying. I feel overwhelmed by the information.”

“I’ve bought all the CBT-style videos and books, and have even been on a course, but I don’t feel ready to take the exam and I don’t know if I ever will.”

“I’ve been studying for a long time now, but I haven’t booked the exam yet because I just don’t feel ready.”

For every ten students who start out towards the CCNA qualification, nine quit. They don't quit because of laziness but because they became overwhelmed with information and didn't even know where to start. They sat down to study from one of the 'big name' manuals and half an hour later found themselves staring blankly at the same page. Can you imagine how frustrating that feels?

You see, most authors throw you in at the deep end and expect you to get on with it. They forget that you have a full time job, a long journey back home, family commitments and any number of challenges going on in your life. The last thing you have time for is to write out a detailed study plan with plenty of review sessions.

If only somebody could tell you what to study each day, every day. If only you could open your study guide and see which bit of theory to read, which lab to do and which exam to take. You could then get on with the task of studying and getting that exam nailed.

This is where Cisco CCNA in 60 Days comes in. Written in response to feedback from thousands of students using my online CCNA in 60 days program, my classroom courses and my other online Cisco training websites this book is the final piece in the studying puzzle.


Every day you read your theory module, you review yesterdays lesson, do a lab and then answer some review questions.

The next day you do the same until you reach the review sessions where you cement all your knowledge with more labs and review as well as some practise exams. If that wasn't enough, you have a cram guide to read daily and an online Subnetting review site to really hone your subnetting skills.

At the 30 day mark you can take your CCENT exam and move into your ICND2 study sessions or just take your CCNA exam at the end of 60 days. If you fall behind no problem, just pick up where you left off.

Having a problem with motivation and distractions? No problem, just read the detailed goal setting guide to turbo boost your productivity and motivation.


Every subject Cisco want you to know for your exams is covered with labs, theory, exams, reviews and crams. From RIP to OSPF, from VLSM to CIDR, IPv4 to IPv6, STP to CDP. Every exam topic is covered in detail many times over.

Just when you think you are ready you are hit with challenge labs and more exams to ensure you are more than ready for the tricky Cisco exams. There are over 60 labs in total. Some with careful explanations and some you have to work out for yourself.


Paul Browning used to work at Cisco TAC but left in 2002 to start his own Cisco training company. He has authored several Cisco manuals as well as created one of the biggest online Cisco training websites used by many thousands of students.

Farai Tafa is a dual CCIE who consults for large blue chip companies in the USA. He is an expert in network design and installation as well as an acknowledged expert in voice and security.

Daniel Gheorghe is a CCIE in Routing and Switching. He is

Stick to this schedule - 2 hours per day for 60 days and there is a very good likelihood of passing the CCNA exams. Normally this could take 2 years, but this book is FOCUSED, clearly written and to the point. The excellent "motivational" appendix/chapter which was in the 1st edition as appendix F is now online only (I think) once you have purchased this book. Regarding value for money, this is incredible. Even if you don't want to go for the full CCNA course, it is a very useful book for Infrastructure and Solution Architects

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! 23 Oct 2014
By David
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book a few weeks ago and I cannot recommend enough! Using packet tracer for the lab work and writing out notes as the chapters (split into days) went along as helped me grasp a good level of knowledge but easy to understand concept when it comes to whats expected to pass the exam. I previously done one year part time course to help me prepare for the exam and I can honestly say I have learnt more in the past few weeks than I did in the space of 9 months. Really well written and easy to understand. Every day I go through my notes to really let the information sink in. The lab work took me a few days to get used to but Iv worked hard at it and flying now. This book is extremely well written, easy to understand and split up into manageable chapters. After having used 2 other study guides in the past, I can safely say this is the best I have ever used. Theres some great tips and the end of chapters questions and labs are a brilliant edition. The illustrations really help to make you understand what the text is saying. I wish I found this book months ago! Big big thanks to Paul, Farai, Daniel and Dario!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CCNA Study guide/resource 17 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have held off writing a review on this book until I got a good way in to ensure that my review was based on experience of the content. Over the past year I have attended a local college and completed the four semesters of Cisco's CCNA Discovery, this was delivered one evening per week for 3 hours, plus access to the curriculum at home. Whilst the CCNA Discovery gave me a better understanding of networking I still felt that I was not confident enough in the CCNA Discovery to take the CCENT or CCNA, Cisco sometimes makes understanding concepts and theories quite hard, especially for someone who is not an academic, like me.

I bought the kindle version of this book in the hope that I would improve my networking knowledge further still, and I'm extremely pleased with the book, it is perfectly written for someone like me, Paul has structured the requirements of the exams into individual daily content, he explains concepts in layman's terms as much as he can, and I must say it does help, the fact that the book is called "CCNA in 60 Days" motivates you, each day he outlines the goal of that particular day, and each day ends with mini exam questions and labs for you to go through to gain experience, for the labs, use either a physical lab or Packet Tracer/GNS3 simulation software. I found the "personal trainer" approach keeps you motivated and on track.

It's a great book, that with your effort could result in you gaining a Cisco certification.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for passing ICND P1 & 2 or CCNA exam 8 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not the most confident when taking exams but after reading the reviews on the first Cisco CCNA in 60 days I obtained my ICND P1 with ease as the content was excellent due to the info supplied within book and online giving you the structure to study. hence opting to purchase the new version to prepare for my part 2.

I just found the layout of the book great coupled with the spoken videos made me feel at ease when taking my exam.

A must to prepare and study for the three exams.

great job well worth it

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to pass the exam 25 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the first 'Cisco CCNA in 60 days' book and choose the material because of the great reviews from those who share the same goals. Having passed my CCNA exam with the 1st book and the use of a PT simulator, the book provided guidance for self-study and straight to the point material, making it easier to know what to learn. An easy choice at such a competitive price.

I've not quite finished reading yet, so this is only a thoughts-so-far review.

This is a good book. As simple as that. It deals with everything you need to know, so far, about the CCNA course content and has done a good job of preparing me to sit the individual Chapter exams on the Cisco Training Academy learning site. I like it and I'm enjoying reading it. I like the format, I like the way it's written and I am in general (apart from the really complicated stuff) enjoying the content.

Certainly worth the price - bought on kindle.

By Michael
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brilliant book, it works like an absolute charm. The overall structure of it is excellent, it's easy to read and take in the information, unlike other study guides. The OCG (WO) for instance it goes in depth and uses various analogies to understand the content, but it sometimes entirely misses the point.

I don't have a goal to achieve my CCNA within 60 days, since I'm using a wide variety of resources, but this is my main resource by far.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone that wants a resource that is straight to the point
