You CCNA and CCNP candidates alike should take a few mintues to read this one - it's a combination OSPF practice exam and tutorial on OSPF timers.

Hiya Bulldogs!

Here's more help for you on the CCNA exam and the CCNP SWITCH exam as well.

The first practice exam is intended for both CCNA and CCNP candidates, with the second and third for CCNAs - but you CCNP candidates could always use a little review!

And by the way, I'll have a major announcement here on the blog on Friday regarding the release dates of our CCNP ROUTE and CCNP TSHOOT Bulldog Boot Camp DVDs and Study Guides.  Looks like they'll all be done a little sooner than I thought! :)

I promise you this:  All of our new CCNP materials - hard copies, DVDs, ebooks, and other formats - are the best products we're ever issued.  

That's a very high bar.  And we're going to clear it.

And yes, the rumors are true ... I will be back out on the road in 2011 meeting plenty of you Bulldogs in person!  More details on that after we get the CCNP materials finished up.

Let's get to today's tutorials!

*** A Major Announcement From Chris Bryant, CCIE #12933***

Bulldogs,

As many of you know, Cisco's CCNP program recently underwent a major change, and having been involved with Cisco certifications for over a decade, I can tell you this...

... that usually indicates a change in the CCNA program will not be far behind.

In 2007, the CCNP changes were quickly followed by a major CCNA program change - and while I have no official word on this, it's been about three years since the last CCNA exam version change...

... and that's another red flag that a new CCNA exam can't be far away.

I've lived through these exam changes several times, and whether it's the CCNA, CCNP, or CCIE, every time there's a Cisco exam change, there's an absolute stampede to beat the exam change deadline.

Here's your opportunity to get a huge jump on this rumored change and earn your CCNA certification with no worries about upcoming exam changes....

... and then get your CCNA Security certification at no extra cost.

As part of our 5th Anniversary Celebration, I'm proud to present...

... The CCNA Guaranteed Pass.

In addition to our $20 CCNA Security certification special, I'm now offering my famous Binary Math And Subnetting Mastery ebook course at that same price for the first time ever --- and the last time, too.

Of course, you can go ahead and get the CCNA Study Package and get a FREE CCNA Security Study Package!

You can save $50 *and* get Free Priority Worldwide Shipping with my upcoming CCNP SWITCH exam materials - including the debut of our Bulldog Video Boot Camps, available only at The Bryant Advantage!

CCNP SWITCH DVD And Study Guide w/ $50 discount and free shipping

There's something for everyone there, so take advantage today - and I'll see you later today with new tutorials!
