Hi all,
My first participation in this group is with an article that I have
written few months ago. The article is called "The Road to CCNA". This
article gives a self-study road map for CCNA seekers.
I hope it helps.

The road to what? CCNA?  What is CCNA?
Are you talking about the freaking CCNA exam that CISCO uses to rip people
off?
The exam that has to be taken every 3 years?
The exam that does not let you skip questions?

Bitter, party of one, Bitter party of one your table is ready.


I hear you about the skipping and the every 3 years, but Cisco has
made themselves the professionals of Networking and they don't want
their certs being dragged through the mud like MCSE's. Not that an
MCSE isn't worth anything, but you could walk the streets of SF and
bump into an MCSE guy on the corner who's only knowledge of Microsoft
is that Bill Gates is a rich SOB. So they set the tests at a
challenging so that when you say you have a CCNA or above, they know
what it took to get it.
It's annoying and very frustrating, but worth it.

The exam is not setup so you can learn. CCNA is an exam about collecting
money.
Everybody complains about the time; the exam is setup in such a way so you
can fail.
The interface is ridiculous ( cannot even minimize windows); the questions
are setup in a ridiculous way that you cannot even skip them and/or go back
for a review; the content of the exam is even more ridiculous, especially
semesters 3 and 4: if you think you learn about Frame relay and ISDN in
CCNA, you are a moron. The only thing CCNA is worth of is learning about
subnets ( if you are going to use it in real life) - nothing else!

Good luck if you have time and money to waste!

Sorry guys for the late reply, I was out of town.

eager,
man you are way too charged against the CCNA exam. It seems like you
have failed in it before.
I will be honest with you. I am a Cisco Certified Academy Instructor.
I have given CCNA courses for about a 100 person. Only 3 of them
failed in the exam. And they re-took the exam and passed.
This is my first time to hear someone talk about CCNA this way. Man
its only the first step in the Cisco world. I wonder what would you
say about CCNP and CCVP.
