If you haven’t decided what CCNA test to take, read this post first.
The author created this free CCENT and CCNA study guide by collecting various free multimedia resources from the network, including a lot of youtube videos. Also check out the CCNA Lab for the labs corresponding to this tutorial, and verify your knowledge with pre-make Practice Exams .
Do It Yourself (DIY) is the best way of learning TCP/IP network, therefore, I highly recommend you to download wireshark and packet tracer. With wireshark, you can capture your network traffic and see exactly what’s going on under the hood; with packet tracer, you can set up LAN and WAN virtually and do experiments on them.
Good luck with your CCENT and CCNA test!
(CCENT – ICND1)
Introduction to Networking and the Networking Models
Cover the theory needed for the exam, to accelerate Cisco networking career and for troubleshooting experience
Ethernet Standards and Cable Types
The CCNA Exam will Hammer You with Questions About Ethernet… so this course breaks down everything you need to know about cable types. this is also crucial for setting up and running a network in the real world.
I Explain How (and WHY) Switches Work… in theory, for real world application and for the exam.
Common Router and Switch Commands
Typical Switch (And Router) Commands are Broken Down. This information is necessary both on exam day and also when working in the real world as a network admin, as these commands are used daily.
IP Addressing and the Routing Process
This section covers must know (and memorize) fundamentals, which are needed for the exam and necessary for future videos: binary math, subnetting, and working with network and port address translations.
ARP, DNS and DHCP
This section will teach you these fundamental protocols which are necessary for use within any network.
Memory Components and Config Files
This video introduces the student to basic password and security configurations, as well as assigning privilege levels; so, it’s really the foundation for their knowledge of router security as well as the basic password recovery process.
Intro to Wireless Networks (WLANs)
Learn the standards of wireless, which relates to all wireless, not just Cisco. This is the fastest evolving and growing field. It’s also necessary to memorize this information for the exam.
Binary Math and Subnetting
Fundamentals for the exam. Also, essential for IP addressing and IP address conservation. #1 topic that causes otherwise well prepared students to fail CCNA.
Static Routing and RIP – Part 1
More fundamentals for the exam, and you will see the work done over a Cisco router. You will learn how to manually set up routing. This video will pave the way for future exam and real world success.
Wide Area Networks (WANs)
Learn to link routers with other routers for communication.
Introduction to Network Security
You will learn about network attackers and intruders, how they get in, and how to keep your network save by keeping them out.
95% of work in the real world is troubleshooting, so it’s necessary for real world success.
