Help with Cisco
Please feel free to post any questions you may have from your CCNA/CCNP classes or your own studying. I would be happy to help out where I can. If I can learn a thing or two as well so much the better!
Where those who know about tech come to share with those who don't
Excluding the Preparation and Certification Series of books from Cisco Press, here are my Top 5 recommended books to help you pass the CCNA and/or CCNP exams (these are MUST HAVE books):
For those of you going after your certs, and even those of you who are not, Certification Magazine is a great addition to your networking library. If you are consulting, this is a must read. And, you can't beat the cost - FREE!
Yes, it seems like Windows Vista finally has a ship date. Good for Microsoft, finally. But, if I can impart any real advice with this blog, let it be this: BUY A MAC.
What's in your library? Cisco Press is celebrating 10 years - Congrats! - and you can choose your top 10 books here
Anyone in need of a TFTP server or a subnet calculator? What network engineer isn't?
When I switched to the Mac, the first thing I googled was "RoboForm for the Mac" - sadly, it does not exist. But, I did not despair long, for there was already a great product for the Mac that supported not only Safari and Firefox, but Camino and other browsers as well: 1Password
If anyone has any real world experience with Cisco's new product, TelePresence Meeting, please share.
I am a long time PC user (over 12 years) and this past June I got my first Mac. All I can say now is.....there is no going back. To the PC, that is. And, I can say more, as well. I have always been a PC user, most likely due to Microsoft's stranglehold on the PC market. I had been aware of the Mac and its reputation for having a superior OS. However, it was really a case of out of sight, out of mind. I had no need for a Mac. If only I knew what I had been missing!
Has anyone heard anything - good or bad - about the new Quick Reference Sheets from Cisco Press? I would be interested to know if the CCNP Sheets (also called Short Cuts) were of any help in studying for the new exams.
