Hi all,

Please believe me that i have been searching for a while now on how
best to get on the CCNA train but i'm still slightly confused and
really don't want to spend any money before being confident that i've
got a plan!
I'm fairly comfortable with networking etc. so i'm not starting from
scratch.
As i can't afford real equipment or time off work to attend courses i'm
already bound to rely on books and simulators, that much i do know.
Also, it seems that you can take the CCNA exam in 2 parts (640-811) and
(640-821) or in one go. So i'll decide now i'm going to go for the
single exam (640-801).

It seems there are 3 routes that are generally recommended consistently
in these forums for someone like myself.

1. Get Sybex/Todd Lammle books with certSim software and follow up with
mock exams/questions etc from numerous sources.
2. Cisco press books with Boson simulators and follow up with mock
exams/questions etc from numerous sources.
3. Both of the above together for a more complete understanding.

My confusion however is pulling it all together, it seems there are
many books from both Cisco press and Sybex, some come with CD's etc but
seemingly with light versions of the simulators etc. Then there are
companion guides and all sorts of other books that in the end make me
wonder where exactly should i start?

Lets say i go for option 1, would it be recommended then to buy:
CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate Study Guide (640-801) + certSim
direct from web.
OR
CCNA Certification Kit: Exam 640-801 with CCNA Virtual Lab Platinum
Edition (is this a lite version of certSim????)

Or for option 2:
CCNA preparation library (2 book bundle from Cisco) + Boson netSim
direct from web.

Any comments welcome!
Sorry from the long mail but it would be good to get a definitive plan
together before spending money.

Thanks in advance!!!!

You're a f**king fool!!! Hmmm...lets see, steal from Cisco, steal from
Cisco, and steal from Cisco...is that what you're suggesting?

Do you seriously think that someone who has spent time researching
(legitimate) ways to *legally* EARN his certifications would want to STEAL
and use STOLEN material???

Where do you get off coming into a Cisco newsgroup and recommending ILLEGAL
material??


Your IP Address and other information have been logged at CertGuard, and you
have been reported to Cisco for Cheating.


I suggest you LEARN a little more about the people you're F**KING while you
cheat.

It was merely a suggestion-no need to get all uncool and heavy. You
must be commission based,I can understand your anger, and to a lesser
extent feel your pain.
Merry Christmas

Merry x-mas to you too. No, no commission, h3ll, no profit even. It just
p!ss3s me off that you lazy bastigs can't figure out that stealing test
questions, cheating to get certifications that you haven't EARNED, and
sharing stolen material, is what is screwing up this industry.

Look at it this way. Let's just imagine that YOU spent hours of your own
free time, after a full 8-hour day of work, everyday, for months, preparing
for an exam. You go in and take that exam and pass it, then you come into a
newsgroup like this to find that people are passing around the actual
answers to the exam that you just busted your @$$ to take.

Now, think about all those idiots that are taking the exams, with little to
no knowledge of the equipment they're working on. How would you feel if you
had to work next to one of those morons? How would you feel if one of those
morons was your boss and you had to do what he told you to do? Would you
take the heat for his screw ups?

So, for future reference, please don't 'suggest' the use of illegal
material, cheating, or stealing.

No problem-I am doing as you are saying-I work all day and then study
at college , I suppose everyone wants a little help-I find the test
questions ok ,but not a great help-as you have to understand the
concepts first-through hard study.
Peace to you sir.

Just make sure you understand the material you're trying to pawn off on
people that really do want to EARN their certificates. And if you can't take
the time to figure out if the material you're suggesting is legal or
illegal, then leave it to people that do know.

Sir-one must protest, "Pawn off" is a very strong statement, I receive
no ,nor would wish for, any fiscal gain from these links-if knowledge
is now hard currency then I would be guilty only of insider dealing-NOT
embezzlement.
I consider the matter now closed-good day 2 i sir.
Happy New Year ,foshizzle

FYI, by definition, "Pawn off" means "To dispose or get rid of deceptively".
Which is exactly what you were trying to do. Now please, stop trying to pawn
off illegal wares onto people that would prefer to EARN their
certifications.

When you try to pawn off information that was acquired illegally, you are in
violation of the Non-Disclosure Agreement that you signed when you took the
exam.

Please RE-read them:
http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le11/learning_certification_exam_policies.html

Now, if you continue to dispute the fact that what you have done is in fact
*illegal* and you continue to pawn off illegal material, then I will be
forced to report you to Cisco.

DON'T do it again!!!

No need to quiz me, I'm not here to pretend that I know everything. Yes, I
have completed all four of the CCNA courses, but that was over 3 years ago
and I haven't been actively working with it.

My goal here is to make sure that people like you don't try to pawn off
illegal material. Something tells me that you STILL haven't learned though.
Your information is being kept for future record. Thanks.
