New CCNP Books

Yesterday I received my new CCNP books from Cisco Press.  Surprisingly the price was not that bad what I got.  All three courses, 642- 902, 813 and the 832.  I opt for Certs Kits for each as well.

The complete course was around $250 which includes the “Official Certification Guides” , Cert Kits and shipping.

The Cert Kits includes a Quick Reference booklets, flash cards (found online) and a DVD. Each DVD in the same familiar format as the the Video Mentor series is, each with an introduction and roughly 5 to 6 hours of video, each covering the the material talk about in the Certification Guides.

This is makes this series stand out is that the Cert Kits complement the Cert Guides.  I would recommend that you buy them both.  While scanning through the new material I notice that this time Cisco is really pushing hard on the routing and switching.  They have left a lot of the VOiP and security out, which was found in the ONT (642-845) and ISCW (642-825) tracks.

The Last Subnet How2 Doc

Note that this was originally posted in May 2009

I wrote this document to help with my CCNA studies, the intent of the document was to help me quickly convert class A and B subnets for the test.  The CCNA will present subnet questions in CIDR format and you should know how to answer them in less then 90 seconds.

I converted the document from Microsoft Word 2007 to PDF using doPDF6.3 a  free PDF converter.  So far it appears to have done a nice job.  You can find it here >Do PDF

The document is here > The Last Subnet How2 Doc
