I’ve been thinking of getting my CCNA for a bit now and decided now is the time to get moving. I have a number of books and training material to help me out on my learning experience. The best item I would say is my video training from Train Signal with Chris Bryant. It’s easy to follow along with and he covers all the details that you need. However I learn best when I can get my hands on actual equipment and make it work in a live environment. So I decided that is what I will do.
First I’ll need to get some Cisco routers, switches, and instead of going to easy route (in my opinion) and using the DSL modem from AT&T that I have I’m going to get a ADSL WIC for my Cisco router and configure everything that way. This should get me some great hands on experience as well as allow me to access the internet (assuming I set it up correctly).
It should be fun.
