Hello all,I'm actually deciding to go ahead with my certification desires. I've been procastinating for 2.5 years, and I probably could be a ccsp/vp/np , whatever by now. . .so I decided to pick up the stated book in the topic, by Wendel Odom. I read the previous revision from 2005/2006 I believe, before CCent was out, and I finished that first book, and gave up, and never went on to the second one.
I'm rehashing whats in ICND1, and refreshing my brain. Subnetting I still remember fluidly, but other topics, I'm just re-glazing to stick it in the brain again....
However, wendel lays out 2 paths, do the ICND1 book *only* , then take icnd1 for CCENT cert, then start the ICND2 book and then take a ccna test.
however, if ccna path is your desire he says to go back/forth between the two books (with which page in book 1 to go from, then to which page in book 2, going from topic to advanced topic back/forth.
is ccent even worth it? or just stick to the ICND1/ICND2 dual(ccna) path?
I dont want to demean ccent, but it seems like a waste of time?
