Join Me Online - And LIVE - In April For My Latest CCNA Mastermind Webinar!

Everyone who attended the March Mastermind Webinar was thrilled with the content and the delivery - and some of them have since earned their CCNA! Let's hear from just a few....

"Hi Chris,

Wanted to write and let you know that I passed the CCNA 640-802 today. I attended your CCNA Mastermind Webinar two weeks ago and really believe it helped make it all fall into place. You did very well in your explanation on switching and routing. I was very grateful that on the first day you didn’t go through the basics, you jump straight to switching and started ripping into it."

Michael Lentner, NEW CCNA!


"Thanks Chris so much for these 6 great but tough days. You really know how to teach.I am now ready for the exam!" - Marco Camacho, CCNA Mastermind March Student


"Chris, I was struggling with some dry texts and finding some concepts a bit hard to grasp. The CCNA Mastermind webinar was thorough and yet you taught it at a level I feel anybody can understand." - Kevin Menke, CCNA Mastermind March Student



Now it's your turn! And when you register for the April Webinar, you can then attend the June Webinar just five weeks later for free - that's right, FREE - for a refresher or to attend a session you might have missed. Whatever the reason, you can attend any or all sessions in June for FREE when you enroll in the April Webinar... so click this link and get ready for over 25 hours of live CCNA instruction delivered straight to your desktop!

"I've already gotten my money's worth after only two days!"

"STP makes total sense now! Thanks!"

We still have four full sessions to come this week, and you can attend any or all of them for FREE when you register today for your April CCNA Mastermind Webinar seat!

Let me sum it up:

I personally guarantee that every attendee of the March CCNA Webinar can attend the April Webinar at no additional cost - whether you attend one April session or all six of them.

That's as good as it gets.

I've added even more value to the CCNA Webinar - now it's your turn to take action.

Hi Group! :)

I want to start today off with some major news about my CCNA Mastermind Webinar for March, which starts next week.

I've heard from quite a few of you who want to attend, but are concerned about missing a session (the course runs Monday - Friday nights and then on Saturday).

So I've come up with a solution for that, and it's a solution that adds even more value to an already incredible training opportunity.

When you sign up for the March CCNA Mastermind Webinar, you can attend any or all of the April Webinar sessions at absolutely no additional cost.

That's right. No additional cost.

You can also attend the April Webinar if you just want a refresher on everything you learned in the March course - and you're going to learn a lot!

This allows you to enroll in the March course with no fear of missing a session, or even an hour - because you can then attend the April course!

And there are no capacity restrictions on this offer - no "gee, there's no room for you to audit" that you may have run into with other training options.

Let me sum it up:

I personally guarantee that every attendee of the March CCNA Webinar can attend the April Webinar at no additional cost - whether you attend one April session or all six of them.

That's as good as it gets.

I've added even more value to the CCNA Webinar - now it's your turn to take action.

Click the link or the banner below, and register for your March CCNA Webinar seat right now - and come back in April for a minute, an hour, or all 30 hours at no additional cost!

Announcing My "CCNA Security Stimulus Plan"!

Studying for your Cisco exams is twice as challenging today, since you've got to watch your money and continue to study and earn certifications.

After all, there has never been a more important time to add certifications to your career, and be ready to use the knowledge that comes with them.

And if there's a more important topic than security in today's networks, I don't know what it is!

The CCNA Security Stimulus Plan is a simple, three-step plan:

1. I've reduced the price of the CCNA Security Study Package by $20, which puts more money in your pocket immediately.

2. You study hard and earn your CCNA Security certification, and learn how to better secure your network.

3. And of course, earning this important certification helps to secure your career and your future prospects as well! :)


This plan worked perfectly for Terry Gilligan and Greg Carbone, who recently earned their CCNA Security certification by using my Study Package!

"Hi Chris, just wanted to let you know I passed my CCNA Security with a pass mark of 966.

Thanks to your excellent study guides I passed with flying colours, I will not hesitate to recommend your study guides to all my colleagues, I now have to start on the CCSP track ... and guess who iIwill be coming to for study guides... YOU!"
- Terry Gilligan, CCNA Security Certified

"Chris, I passed the CCNA Security exam today. Once again I thank you for your great instruction videos and support. As soon as you have the CCNA Voice available I will be purchasing that one as well. Thanks again! -- Greg Carbone, CCNA Security Certified

I want every single one of you to earn your CCNA Security certification just as Terry and Greg did - and it's now easier and more affordable than ever.

Hi Group!

Had a little Blogger issue last night (or rather, Blogger had the issue!), so Monday's Cisco practice exam questions are just a bit late. Here they are!

All of today's questions are short answer. Answers will be posted Tuesday, March 10.


CCNA / CCENT Certification:

Name three differences between RIP versions 1 and 2.



CCNA Security:

You've just run Auto Secure, accepting the Cisco best practice defaults. What is your router's new minimum password length - if there is one?


CCNA Voice:


The Cisco command call park has a timeout value. What happens when the timeout value is reached?



CCNA Wireless:

What type of wireless network is defined by the IEEE 802.15.4 standard? (And yes, there really is such a standard!)







Here are today's CCNP questions!


BSCI Exam:

Cisco's best practices for OSPF includes a maximum recommended number of OSPF neighbors. What is it?



BCMSN Exam:

What command is used to verify a Cisco router's HSRP values?



ISCW Exam:

What's the basic operational difference between stream algorithms and block algorithms?


ONT Exam:

What common term refers to the process of process of assigning the packet a value reflecting the level of QoS it should receive and then placing that packet into a queue in accordance with that level of QoS?

Studying for your Cisco exams is twice as challenging today, since you've got to watch your money and continue to study and earn certifications.

After all, there has never been a more important time to add certifications to your career, and be ready to use the knowledge that comes with them.

And if there's a more important topic than security in today's networks, I don't know what it is!

The CCNA Security Stimulus Plan is a simple, three-step plan:

1. I've reduced the price of the CCNA Security Study Package by $20, which puts more money in your pocket immediately.

2. You study hard and earn your CCNA Security certification, and learn how to better secure your network.

3. And of course, earning this important certification helps to secure your career and your future prospects as well! :)

I want every single one of you to earn your CCNA Security certification - and it's now easier and more affordable than ever.

Hi Group! :)

Hope those of you being hit by this big snowstorm here in the U.S. are well! We have about eight inches of snow here in Central Virginia, but the power's on, and that's fine with me!

Be sure to scroll down in the blog - I posted several new Cisco training videos here and on the main website over the last week, links can be found below.

I have over 100 new videos on the way - that's right, over 100 videos - that will be posted in March, April, and May.

That includes new CCNA Voice material as well as my Cisco Certification Video Training Resource Page!

Quite a few of you have asked for more details regarding the CCNA Mastermind Online Webinar - well, I heard you! I've just added additional information to that page that I want to share with you here.

I run over 70 live labs during the Webinar - that's right, 70 live CCNA labs - and point out vital details that will help you pass the CCNA exam and build the skills you need to become a world-class network administrator!

And what are those labs? Glad you asked - here are just some of them!

Directly Connected Serial Interfaces and Point-to-Point links:


Change the encap from the default of HDLC to PPP

How to detect an encapsulation mismatch – and how to fix it

Configuring PAP and CHAP on a point-to-point link

Debugging PAP and CHAP to detect password mismatches and other connection issues

Configuring a Serial interface to use both PAP and CHAP

PPP multilink and compression options


Frame Relay Labs:


Configuration of Frame Relay on physical interface, multipoint subinterface, and point-to-point subinterfaces, with careful attention paid to which commands are appropriate for each of those interface types

Debugging and showing the Frame Relay LMI to detect and resolve Frame Relay connection issues

Configuring a specific LMI type rather than using LMI Autosense

Enabling and disabling Frame Relay Inverse ARP

Using the frame relay map and frame relay interface-dlci commands

Exploring the “0.0.0.0” Frame Relay mapping – what it means and why we should or shouldn’t be concerned

Verifying and troubleshooting Frame Relay map statements

Configuring frame map statements with and without the “broadcast” option – we’ll see what the exact (and slightly misleading) result is

Solving split horizon issues in three different ways, including using frame relay subinterfaces
Viewing BECN, FECN, and DE statistics

Viewing and verifying Frame Relay PVC statistics, and using these statistics to locate Frame Relay problems


Switching:


Illustrated discussion of the “forward/filter/flood” decision process

Viewing the MAC address table

Changing the aging time for dynamically learned MAC addresses

Testing IP connectivity between hosts in the same VLAN, and then we’ll see what happens when the hosts are placed in different VLANs

Placing ports into VLANs – even VLANs that have not yet been created - and using show vlan commands to verify these settings

Port security configurations, including viewing the default settings, configuring additional secure MAC addresses, changing the violation mode, and viewing the results of a port security violation

How to verify Spanning Tree Protocol statistics and defaults, including identifying root ports, forwarding ports, and blocked ports

Configuring STP timers, including Hello Time and MaxAge

Changing the results of the root bridge election

Changing port speed and duplex settings with the interface range command

Portfast configuration, verification, and proper use

Trunk configuration between two Cisco switches – we’ll see dynamically created trunks and learn how to statically configure one as well

VLAN Trunking Protocol configuration, including viewing the defaults, setting a domain name, setting a password for the VTP domain, and configuring switches in different VTP modes

Watching the VTP Configuration Revision Number in action

Etherchannel configuration – why we configure them, the options and limits for Etherchannels, and their effect on port costs and Spanning Tree Protocol

.. and that doesn't even mention literally dozens of other labs! Head over to my CCNA Mastermind Online Webinar page for the entire list, and reserve your seat today!

There's never been a more important time to earn your Cisco certifications, and I'm ready to do everything I can to help you get there!
