The Cisco CCNA is one of the most widely recognised and respected qualifications in the IT industry. Every year, tens of thousands of people embark towards taking the exam via private study, Cisco Academy courses, or online training. The sad truth is most students quit along the way, and for those few who actually do attempt it, only 50% pass. All that time, effort, and money wasted! If there are so many manuals, CBT courses, lab simulators, exam engines, and study resources out there, then what goes wrong? This is the question Cisco trainer Paul Browning wanted to get to the bottom of. After interviewing thousands of students, he discovered that most people quit because they are simply overwhelmed with the sheer volume of material they need to digest and, of course, the large number of hands-on skills they need to be able to demonstrate in the exam. Add to that the day-to-day stresses of commuting to work, bringing up a family, and the distraction of everyday problems and challenges; it's no wonder people quit. This is where Cisco CCNA in 60 Days can help.Devised by two industry experts and countless Cisco students just like you, the 60-day programme breaks down every exam requirement into a daily study task.
