ABOUT THE BOOK

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.


HOW IT WORKS

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.


WHAT'S COVERED?

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.

I originally reviewed this book mid-way through reading it and rated it 4 stars, however today I passed my CCNA exam and need to set a few things straight.

As a University student, I had attended the lectures on CCNA 1,2,3,4, but at that time didn't feel confident enough to take the test (needless to say I was a student and did not have the money). I bought this book with the intention of using it to refresh my memory and provide a good structure for me to follow.

Firstly, the structure set out by Paul is to a very high standard and for that I must give him credit!

However, and I must say it is a big however. Whilst reading the book, I kept thinking to myself "I'm sure there is some detail missing on this part..." "From Uni I remember this too...". I dug up my Uni notes and lectures and I found that chunks of information had been cut from the book which were still relevant and still included in the CCNA syllabus. Quite simply, there is not enough detail in parts of this book to pass. I'm so glad I went back to my lecture slides to revise from, in addition to the book, otherwise there may have been a different ending to my exam today. As an example off the top of my head, I was asked a question regarding VTP and configuration revision numbers, (I won't go into any more detail because I do not want to get into trouble with Cisco), but Configuration revision in VTP is not even covered in the book.

Another negative about the author and of the book is found in the introduction, it asks to give the book a review and you'll be sent a free CCNA exam worth $67. This is why there are so many high reviews, people are not reading the book entirely and writing anything just so they get free stuff - I admit, I am guilty of this, but I making amends now.

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.

I bought this book to compliment a university course that followed the CCNA material.

I personally never had much time to read this book, but in comparison to Cisco's own CCNA material that was provided as part of my course, this is straight to the point and isn't watered down to bulk out a course with nonsense rambling that has no significance in an exam. Unfortunately it was difficult to tie the book's content into my assignments as the order of learning was completely different.

But that said, the initial start of this book is disappointing. While I don't deny what was said is true, but essentially the author stresses about being in a good routine of reading daily and being consistent in keeping it up.

To me, that is a bit of a miss-sell - as if to say nothing special is being taught in the book and it comes down to dedication. This same concept could be applied to any teaching material - spend some considerable time everyday and of course you will be a lot more confident in that subject. To me, when I'm spending money on a book (and one that suggests a short time span needed) I expected a bit more than "dedicate yourself to reading".

Otherwise, the book is well written and I found it a lot more bearable to read than Cisco's "netacad" CCNA content which, in the nicest way possible, is clearly written by someone who has no idea of making such a vast course bearable to read.

Some areas of this book I thought were a bit messy or short, but I'm quite particular in that, once I'm told about something I want to understand it fully right away, not several chapters later as I have already gone over in my head several different possibilities for it by then.

I don't think anyone would be disappointed in buying this book. There are quite a few tables which aren't phone-friendly for reading but I guess this is more of a limitation of Kindle as a mobile application than it is the author.

Firstly a confession, I have not been using the book as intended. I did not want to commit 2 hours a day to studying, so I am not really following the 'in 60 days' ethos. I have previously passed older CCNA exams twice, so I felt confident in not following the book as designed. That said, I can completely understand why the author recommends the 'in 60 days' method. I have seen many friends start studying for the CCNA but give up before taking the exam.

The book is very easy to read and well structured. There are a few mistakes in the book, but they are quite obvious and do not detract from the learning. The book seems more direct and contain less fluff than a lot of the Cisco books I have read.

Overall, I would definately recommend as a great way to study (and pass!) the CCNA. I have my ICND1 exam booked soon and feel confident that I will pass.
