I'm currently studying for the CCENT, i really want to get this certification and set myself on a new career path. But I'm finding myself struggling a bit trying to understand Wendell Odom's Book "CCENT/CCNA ICND1 Official Exam Certification Guide".
I also bought a Boson version of the CCNA, and have absolutely no idea what it was on about to the point i was wondering if it was written in english.
The only other material i have is CBT nugget's video mentoring, which i had the most success in, but after doing some practice test, i find that I'm still lacking in a lot of "in depth" knowledge.
Can someone please recommend any other books for beginners? i have very limited knowledge in Networking, but i have been working in IT for the past 5 years mainly as help desk and desktop support.
Many Thanks in advance,
PS: Can someone please kindly tell me What is the average/expected time frame to study CCENT and passing the exam?
