The above articles don’t cover the entire CCNA curriculum, but what they do cover are done from a practical perspective — not as a memorization exercise. The goal of these articles is not simply to get you to pass your certification exam, but to help you pass job interview questions and be a successful Network Engineer.
There have been many requests for a full CCNA course. And while the idea has some appeal, I currently have no plans to produce my own CCNA training course. In the mean time, however, I wanted to at least provide a recommendation for a complete CCNA self-pace training course.
Content from Previous version of the CCNA
The content below was created for previous versions of the CCNA exam. I am leaving them listed here because many students still find the knowledge valuable. Even for current version of the exam.
