Binge Study tips?

Thu Apr 10, 2014 11:14 am

So we had a big project at work that has consumed more than its fair share of my time at work, and now with layoffs becoming a possibility I need to refocus on knocking out my CCNA R&S. I have a 4 day weekend. Anyone try and knock out studying for the INCD1 in 40 hours or less?

Could be do-able depending on your level of knowledge experience.

IF your just trying to cram to learn then it wont work. Besides if you have a ton of project time behind you then that will look better on the resume than the CCENT.

Project time was on SAP from a different perspective. I'm semi knowledgeable, but work in another field. I could probably do well on the net+ with a little polish.

Hi Hizzo.

I think the first thing to do would be to review the list of topics covered and rate yourself in terms of your knowledge. like maybe a rank from 1 -5 where 1 is no clue and 5 is mastery.

That should give you a good idea of where you stand and if a cram will suffice.

Yeah, could be doable with experience. Focus on the chapters where you bomb the pre-test.
Take a baseball bat and trash all the routers, shout out "IT'S A NETWORK PROBLEM NOW, SUCKERS!" and then peel out of the parking lot in your Ferrari.

Cool thanks for the tips. I completely forgot about doing a pre-test to identify where I stand on specific topics.

CCNA in 60 days (google it) I have used it and it works. (took 72 days for me simply due to the fact there is only 2 tests centres in Northern Ireland and 1 of them is useless)

To do it in that speed however you need a working background in networking and you need to stick to the study guide (2hrs a day for week days/working days) 4 hrs a day when you are off work.
