Welcome to ICND1: Cisco Certification and Getting the Most From This Series

00:00:00 - >> Welcome to ICND1.
00:00:01 - My name is Jeremy Cioara and I'm going to be with you
00:00:04 - for the entire CCNA series, which is awesome.
00:00:06 - Because CCNA is awesome in itself.
00:00:09 - It's just such great technology.
00:00:10 - As well as one of the most valuable certifications that you can get.
00:00:13 - And actually let me take that as a springboard to talk about what's in this nugget.
00:00:17 - Welcome to the intro.
00:00:19 - I want to go through a frequently asked questions, like,
00:00:21 - what's up with Cisco certification?
00:00:23 - Why do I want it?
00:00:24 - What is CCNA?
00:00:25 - Where does it fit?
00:00:26 - How long does it last?
00:00:27 - How hard is the exam?
00:00:28 - You know, all those kinds of things.
00:00:29 - Let me just kind of put together a packed question and answer on Cisco Certification.
00:00:34 - I'm going to look at CCNA 2013.
00:00:35 - This is the third time I've rerecorded CCNA since I've been with CBT Nuggets.
00:00:39 - Because Cisco is always adding more, changing it, updating the technology,
00:00:43 - so we'll look at what's new there.
00:00:45 - I want to talk about how we change at CBT Nuggets.
00:00:46 - You're probably like, 'Dude!
00:00:48 - You've had too much coffee or something!
00:00:50 - Settle down!"
00:00:51 - Actually I haven't had any coffee this morning.
00:00:52 - It's all CCNA adrenaline buddy!
00:00:54 - CBT Nuggets just has a completely different way of training,
00:00:58 - which sometimes takes a little getting used to.
00:01:00 - Most of the time people are just like, "Woohoo!
00:01:02 - Enjoy the ride."
00:01:03 - And then finally, I want to talk about how you can get the most from this series.
00:01:06 - How can you take this, apply this straight to your job, straight to the certification,
00:01:10 - and walk away with the most you can possibly get from this series.
00:01:14 - So let's dive right in to Cisco's certification and all its glory.
00:01:17 - First off, who is this company, Cisco?
00:01:19 - Well, Cisco is the inventor of the router many moons ago, which strung board them
00:01:25 - into getting their network equipment into just about every internet service provider,
00:01:29 - every business, even a lot of homes all around the world have some form of Cisco technology.
00:01:34 - I mean, their technology spans [pause] product line after product line.
00:01:39 - VoiceOver IP, security appliances, routers, switches.
00:01:43 - There is so much that they create that I can't even put it in a nutshell.
00:01:47 - There's just a lot.
00:01:48 - I think of them as like the Microsoft of networking technology.
00:01:51 - Now, Cisco certification is immensely valuable
00:01:54 - because not only are they the market leader, but everybody's following Cisco.
00:01:58 - I mean Cisco's real claim to fame.
00:02:00 - If you really want to know the secret sauce of Cisco, it's all called IOS.
00:02:04 - Internet Work Operating System.
00:02:05 - It's their software that runs their products.
00:02:08 - It's not even the hardware, the boxes themselves, it's the software that runs it.
00:02:11 - It's kind of the de facto standard and everybody kind of follows that.
00:02:15 - I mean if you've ever seen, obviously you've seen Microsoft Windows,
00:02:18 - well if you look at the latest renditions of Linux,
00:02:21 - they're starting to gain a little traction because they've made themselves look enough
00:02:25 - like Windows that people are starting to accept them.
00:02:28 - And a lot of other network vendors out there are like, "Man, well if we're going
00:02:31 - to play this game, we've got to make our operating system, our way of interfacing
00:02:36 - with our devices, enough like Cisco so somebody would be willing to take the jump and not have
00:02:41 - to relearn everything that they've learned at Cisco."
00:02:43 - So, knowing Cisco is just a huge benefit.
00:02:46 - Also, employers are looking for this because Cisco incentifies them.
00:02:50 - Is that a word?
00:02:51 - I just made it up.
00:02:52 - They have incentive to hire you.
00:02:55 - Cisco says, "You know what?
00:02:56 - If you hire certified people and certified people with depth to them, you know,
00:03:00 - multiple certified people, we'll give you discounts on our Cisco equipment.
00:03:04 - You'll move up in your partner relationship and get 'X' percentage points
00:03:08 - of discounts off on our equipment."
00:03:09 - So businesses, especially people that deal specifically
00:03:12 - in Cisco technologies are very interested in people that are certified
00:03:15 - because it's an immediate return on investment along with knowing
00:03:20 - that when people pass a Cisco certification exam, they know what they're doing.
00:03:24 - I mean these certification exams are not just, "Oh, I read a book and now I can pass it."
00:03:29 - I mean, you really got to know your stuff to get into the Cisco world.
00:03:32 - Now, how do you get them?
00:03:33 - I haven't mentioned, you pass a certification exam or more.
00:03:37 - For instance, to pass, to get the CCENT certification, you pass the ICND1 exam,
00:03:44 - which is actually what this series lines up to.
00:03:46 - It's kind of the foundation of every Cisco certification out there.
00:03:50 - [Laughing] Yeah.
00:03:50 - It's important.
00:03:51 - Then as you move on, for instance, the CCNP currently has three exams.
00:03:56 - So you have to pass three individual exams
00:03:58 - and now you're a Cisco certified network professional in routing and switching.
00:04:02 - You can see all of these different tracks that are there.
00:04:03 - So, as you pass these exams you gain certifications
00:04:06 - and you can use their credentials, get their logos on your business cards and all that.
00:04:11 - These exams all last three years.
00:04:14 - Now that immediately raises some red flags for people.
00:04:16 - They're going, "What do you mean?
00:04:17 - I put all this time and money and effort into all of this
00:04:19 - and it's going to expire after three years?"
00:04:21 - Well, yes, but keep in mind, number one, that Cisco realizes technology is always changing.
00:04:27 - So if you don't keep your certifications current,
00:04:29 - technology 10 years ago isn't the same as it was today.
00:04:32 - And they don't want you to go out and say, "Oh, I'm a CCNP .
00:04:35 - I'm a CCIE and give people the wrong impression are up and coming on technology.
00:04:40 - Also Cisco knows that if you leave the career, if you leave the industry for a long time,
00:04:44 - you're going to start losing some of those skills.
00:04:46 - So, what they said is, "Okay, well, let's say you get a CCENT,
00:04:50 - that now has a three-year life span."
00:04:53 - Now, let's say that two years later.
00:04:57 - I would never think somebody would do this, but it can be done.
00:04:59 - Two years later, you pass ICND2.
00:05:02 - ICND2. So, ICND1 gives you the CCND.
00:05:05 - ICND2 with ICND1 gives you a CCNA routing and switching.
00:05:12 - Well what happens when you pass that exam, is now you've got a CCENT that's renewed
00:05:17 - for three years, you have a CCNA that lasts for three years, and you're now, you know,
00:05:22 - ready [laughing] I had my emphasis like there was some grand conclusion, well that was it!
00:05:28 - Now you've got a CCENT and a CCNA that both last for three years.
00:05:32 - Okay, so let's go further.
00:05:33 - Let's say two years later, just as an example, you take the first exam
00:05:38 - of the CCNP routing and switching.
00:05:39 - You take one exam here.
00:05:41 - Well, once you do that and you pass that exam, it automatically renews your CCNA routing
00:05:46 - and switching and your CCENT for three additional years.
00:05:48 - Now it's not cumulative like if you [audible].
00:05:50 - No, you just got a fresh three years on that.
00:05:54 - And as you pass the second exam, you get a fresh three years on the previous exam.
00:05:57 - See what I mean?
00:05:58 - So it's not hard.
00:06:00 - It's not one of those things where, man, let me just give you an example.
00:06:03 - I've been in Cisco long enough that I have all of these certifications.
00:06:08 - I have achieved them all, not these two, but if I had to keep every single one of them
00:06:14 - up to date, that's all I would do, that would be career is testing.
00:06:17 - Because there's so many exams that I would have to take.
00:06:19 - Well instead, what I do is, every two years, the CCIE routing
00:06:22 - and switching was just a different animal altogether, lasts for two years.
00:06:27 - Every two years I take the written renewal exam for that.
00:06:30 - As soon as I pass that it not only renews my CCIE for two additional years,
00:06:35 - but all of the other certifications, essentially all the lower certifications
00:06:39 - that I have get renewed for two years,
00:06:41 - well actually these guys get renewed for three years, as well, right?
00:06:44 - So it's just one exam to rule them all at that point.
00:06:47 - It goes horizontal, as well.
00:06:48 - Let's say you've got a CCNA routing and switching and you say,
00:06:51 - "Oh man, I'm ready to get into voice."
00:06:54 - Well you take and you pass this, you got a CCNA voice that lasts for three.
00:06:57 - This gets renewed for three years.
00:07:00 - I feel like I'm trying to sell you something.
00:07:01 - And then, by now, and then you get, it's not that way, but the reason I bring
00:07:05 - that up is a lot of people are used to the college degree world.
00:07:08 - Where it's like, "Okay, I got a college degree now I'm set for life.
00:07:11 - Right? I now have this certificate that does that."
00:07:14 - Well, certification and college degrees are very different.
00:07:17 - I actually created a MicroNugget, so CBT Nuggets have MicroNuggets that are free
00:07:23 - that you can take where I discuss the difference between a college degree and certification.
00:07:27 - Certifications are more dynamic.
00:07:30 - They take less time to achieve typically, but you have to keep them up and depending
00:07:34 - on what industry you're in, certifications
00:07:37 - or a college degree may be more respected than the other.
00:07:40 - But like I said, that's a whole another topic.
00:07:42 - There's a MicroNugget just on that, so, next question.
00:07:45 - I said that there is two exams.
00:07:47 - ICND1 will get your CCENT.
00:07:50 - ICND2, when combined with ICND1, will get your CCNA, but there's additional one more.
00:07:57 - There's CCNAX, which is an all-in-one exam.
00:08:02 - The X stands for accelerated, to where you can get the CCNA certification
00:08:08 - with just one exam rather than taking the two.
00:08:10 - So two questions on that.
00:08:11 - Some people say number one.
00:08:12 - Well do I get the CCENT, as well, if I pass that exam?
00:08:16 - No you do not, but nobody cares.
00:08:18 - If you say you're a CCNA, nobody will ask you, "Oh, are you a CCENT too?"
00:08:23 - That's just not a question that even comes up.
00:08:25 - The second thing is well is there a financial benefit to take CCNAX?
00:08:29 - Is it less expensive?
00:08:31 - Actually, matter of fact I don't even think I've said yet, there's fees.
00:08:34 - If you didn't know, these cost money.
00:08:36 - You can't just, you know [laughing], take these exams on a whim.
00:08:38 - I went to the view website.
00:08:41 - Actually right over here.
00:08:42 - And checked the exams.
00:08:44 - And they are currently, these prices change.
00:08:45 - Not often, but, you know [laughing], I laughed I was like,
00:08:48 - "Today's price," like tomorrow's different.
00:08:50 - But these exams, they do change here and there.
00:08:52 - So for the individual exams.
00:08:55 - So ICND1 right there.
00:08:56 - ICND2 right there.
00:08:57 - They're $150.00 each.
00:08:58 - The all-in-one exam is $295.00.
00:09:01 - So is there a financial benefit?
00:09:03 - No. Five bucks.
00:09:04 - Okay?
00:09:07 - Why do they have the all-in-one exam?
00:09:09 - Well, it is for people, it is designed for people that already have a CCNA and it's going
00:09:14 - to expire, so they just want to get the CCNA exam.
00:09:17 - They don't want to move on.
00:09:18 - They don't want to have study stuff that they don't know.
00:09:19 - They just want to take it again and get it.
00:09:21 - So, Cisco right on their website say, "This is for people that already have experience,
00:09:26 - they already probably have a CCNA, and they just want to renew it."
00:09:30 - So, is this more difficult?
00:09:34 - What's the story?
00:09:35 - I would say if you're taking a step into Cisco, I would always recommend going this route.
00:09:40 - Take the two exams.
00:09:41 - It's just, I mean, if you've ever missed an exam before.
00:09:44 - If you've taken these before and you miss it, it's just so, like, ugh.
00:09:47 - Especially when you're like, "Oh man, I just lost 300 bucks."
00:09:52 - I mean, that's painful.
00:09:54 - As well as knowing the fact that you didn't get it and you have to go back again to take it.
00:09:57 - So I always tell people, take the two-exam route.
00:10:00 - Why? Time.
00:10:02 - It's the same questions.
00:10:03 - CCNAX is the same questions that you're going to get on ICND1 and ICND2.
00:10:07 - However, it's just, I've taken all three of these
00:10:11 - and it's just CCNAX is more time constrained.
00:10:14 - You gotta not only know your stuff, you got to be quick at doing it.
00:10:18 - So, if you're going this route.
00:10:21 - I mean you also get the feeling of like, "Yeah!
00:10:23 - I accomplished a milestone."
00:10:25 - Where CCNAX is like, man, it's like a sledgehammer.
00:10:27 - You either score big or, you know, it's like gambling, right?
00:10:30 - You either score big or you lose big.
00:10:33 - So, can I retake these exams?
00:10:35 - Another question.
00:10:35 - If I fail it, can I retake it?
00:10:37 - Yes you can.
00:10:38 - They will have a waiting period.
00:10:40 - It's like a couple weeks before you can schedule the exam again,
00:10:42 - but you can take them as much as you want.
00:10:44 - Obviously, at $150.00 or $300.00 a pop, you're not going to want to retake them that often,
00:10:50 - but you can take them again and again and again and again.
00:10:52 - Now I know there may be more questions on certification, but I'm hoping to answer those
00:10:56 - as I can go and I've also made some more nuggets I'll tell you about at the end of the series
00:11:00 - to help in your certification prep.
00:11:02 - So, CCNA 2013.
00:11:05 - What is new?
00:11:06 - What has changed in this environment?
00:11:08 - Well, this has been the first major revision of CCNA since 2007.
00:11:12 - I looked back and said, "Okay.
00:11:14 - What was new in 2007?"
00:11:15 - 2007 was where they first split the CCNA into two separate exams.
00:11:20 - To where originally there was only one CCNA exam.
00:11:23 - Then they decided to say, "Okay, well let's create this CCENT and CCNA."
00:11:27 - And so now we've got the two exams.
00:11:29 - So we have to say, "Well what did they do beyond in the CCNA?"
00:11:32 - So now in ICND1 they've just made it more complex.
00:11:35 - They've added more subnetting, introducing topics that were never there before,
00:11:39 - like variable length subnet masking.
00:11:41 - They've added more depth to the topic.
00:11:43 - For instance, they started getting into network address translation, access control lists,
00:11:48 - and VLANS, which those used to be all in the ICND2.
00:11:52 - Like, they mentioned NAT previously in the previous version of ICND1,
00:11:56 - but they never really got into the deep configuration, as a matter of fact,
00:12:00 - Cisco really expected to you to NAT configuration only by using the SDM.
00:12:04 - Security Device Manager.
00:12:07 - That is the graphic interface.
00:12:08 - The GUI that Cisco created to work with their devices.
00:12:12 - Now you will find out quickly, in the Cisco world it is all command-line based.
00:12:17 - Now Cisco has started putting their toes in the water on creating graphic interfaces,
00:12:23 - but when it comes down to it, to really do troubleshooting,
00:12:26 - to really get nitty gritty configuration, which is where Cisco specializes,
00:12:30 - you have to go beyond the GUI, which is why Cisco has gotten rid
00:12:35 - of all of that in the certification.
00:12:37 - They said, "Okay, we're not going to teach you the GUI.
00:12:38 - You know, if you want to go do a GUI, a Graphic Interface, you can learn that yourself."
00:12:43 - That's why it's a GUI, you can go, "Next, next, finish," and configure things,
00:12:47 - it's just kind of scary to do it that way and I'll explain why
00:12:49 - as we get into the series itself.
00:12:51 - So now we're doing command-line configuration of NAT, access control lists, and VLANS,
00:12:55 - which never even was able to get into the ICND1 before.
00:12:58 - More modern.
00:12:59 - As in the only routing protocol that you would learn in ICND1 previously was one called, RIP.
00:13:06 - Rest In Peace, is what it now stands for, it's gone!
00:13:09 - And not gone from technology, it's still out there and will be for years and years to come.
00:13:13 - But nobody really uses, very few people really use RIP in a production network.
00:13:18 - And Cisco realized that and said, "you know what,
00:13:20 - why are we teaching people this legacy old protocol anyway?
00:13:23 - We're now going to teach OSPF, which is the most popular routing protocol in the world."
00:13:28 - Looking at the future, Cisco is saying, "Okay, we're also going to start moving IPv6,
00:13:33 - which is becoming more and more popular worldwide.
00:13:36 - The United States is a little slow to catch up to IPv6, but it's becoming more
00:13:40 - and more popular worldwide to address the IP address shortage
00:13:44 - and really open the door for innovation in the future.
00:13:48 - It's going to be creepy scary of how much stuff is going to be connected in the world
00:13:52 - as IP addresses no longer become an issue.
00:13:55 - So IPv6 is being added and now Cisco, you know, is kind of like, "Well,
00:13:59 - they've added all this stuff, what have they taken out?"
00:14:02 - Well, they got rid of a lot of taste testing technology.
00:14:04 - That's what I call it.
00:14:05 - It's where instead of, in previous editions of ICND1, Cisco would say, "Well,
00:14:10 - we're going to test you on kind of the foundations of Wi-Fi,
00:14:15 - Wireless Network Technology," because, you know, Wi-Fi is a big topic.
00:14:19 - So they put enough in there to where you kind
00:14:21 - of get your toes wet, but not really know much at all.
00:14:23 - So they started yanking stuff like that out.
00:14:25 - They're like, "You know what?
00:14:25 - Now we've got a whole certification dedicated to wireless.
00:14:28 - If you want to know wireless, go take that certification."
00:14:31 - They got rid of serial connections to where ICND1 truly is kind
00:14:35 - of like local, land-based configuration.
00:14:38 - They don't get into point-to-point WAN links anyway.
00:14:40 - Because that was kind of duplicated over here.
00:14:42 - You learned about it in ICND1 and then learn about it more in ICND2
00:14:46 - and kind of repeat that information.
00:14:48 - So they said, "Let's move all that over there."
00:14:49 - They also got rid of security.
00:14:51 - They're like, "Ah!
00:14:51 - That's not good."
00:14:53 - Well, security [pause] is a huge topic.
00:14:56 - I mean, you saw in the certification you had the CCNP Security, CCNA Security.
00:15:00 - It's a huge topic and it really, you're going to learn that there is some security in here,
00:15:05 - but there's just a lot of fluff stuff on security.
00:15:09 - It's the best way I can say it and ICND1 previously, that was kind of like, okay,
00:15:12 - they give you a knowledge of security, but not really enough to do anything with it.
00:15:16 - So they said, "Let's get rid of all these taste testing topics to make room."
00:15:19 - Now, that being said, did they remove enough to justify all the stuff that they added?
00:15:24 - No they did not.
00:15:26 - Cisco removed a massive amount of, or I should say, added a massive amount of stuff to ICND1.
00:15:34 - Honestly, as they released ICND1 the barrier to entry in this technology,
00:15:39 - I think, moved significantly higher.
00:15:43 - If you think about it, Cisco is now teaching their curriculum,
00:15:47 - their technology, even in high school classes.
00:15:50 - To where kids going into high school are able to learn Cisco technology
00:15:53 - and Cisco is just saying, "You know what?
00:15:55 - We're now expecting that people are going to have a fairly good technology feel
00:16:01 - because we live in a technology world."
00:16:02 - And, and couple that with Cisco did some studies and said, "You know what?
00:16:07 - We're finding a lot of people getting their CCENT or their CCNA and stopping."
00:16:12 - Like they're not going any further.
00:16:14 - So, they said previously, "Well, you know, it gives them enough to be dangerous."
00:16:17 - They're kind of like, "Oh, you know what?
00:16:19 - No more." If you want to claim to be a CCNA and stop there, you're going to know,
00:16:24 - you're going to know a whole of stuff.
00:16:25 - You're going to really have, not just getting your feet wet, but a master of technology.
00:16:30 - So, as you look at these two combined, ICND2 became a huge amount of troubleshooting.
00:16:37 - Now, you might say, "Well why introduce a lot of troubleshooting?"
00:16:41 - Troubleshooting shows a mastery of the topic.
00:16:44 - When you're thinking about levels of knowledge, you kind of start off, okay I know nothing.
00:16:48 - Then maybe you start learning about something and you get to the point
00:16:50 - where you're like, "Okay, I can explain that."
00:16:53 - Right? To where I know the concept, like I know what NAT is, I'm translating IP addresses
00:16:57 - and all that, so I can explain that to somebody.
00:16:59 - But to go beyond that you say, "Okay, well now I can configure something."
00:17:03 - So if I have a clean router and it's no other configuration,
00:17:08 - I can configure network address translation, right?
00:17:11 - So that's kind of like a third level of knowledge.
00:17:13 - Then we come over here to the final level, which is troubleshooting.
00:17:17 - Troubleshooting not only means that you know how to do something in a clean environment,
00:17:22 - but also you can walk into an environment that's messy
00:17:24 - and you can start diagnosing things that are wrong.
00:17:26 - You can look and go, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
00:17:28 - It seems like you're doing this based on these results I'm seeing.
00:17:31 - I know that something might not be configured correctly."
00:17:34 - And so you can back and configure something correctly even in very complex environments.
00:17:38 - So ICND2 really added a whole bunch of troubleshooting on all topics.
00:17:43 - Switching, routing, access control lists, network address translation.
00:17:46 - There's just this big picture mindset of how do I fix it if it's broken?
00:17:50 - They've added more switching topics.
00:17:52 - A lot more on spanning tree protocol, which is a loop prevention mechanism in networks.
00:17:56 - A lot more on EtherChannel, which never even made it into the CCNA before.
00:18:00 - I've actually seen a lot of topics that were previously CCNP level topics migrate their way
00:18:06 - down into the ICND2 now or the CCNA certification.
00:18:10 - Really right here.
00:18:11 - EIGRP in a lot more depth because OSPF used to be only an ICND2 topic before.
00:18:17 - Now it's covered, at its base level,
00:18:20 - in ICND1 and now at ICND2 they're like, "Man, we're going all out."
00:18:24 - You're getting multi-area OSPF.
00:18:25 - Previously only covered in the CCNP.
00:18:28 - You're getting OSPF version 3, which is OSPF for the IPv6 protocol,
00:18:32 - previously barely even covered in the CCNP because it was like,
00:18:36 - "Oh well, IPv6 is still a long way out."
00:18:39 - Not anymore.
00:18:40 - It's here.
00:18:41 - So more routing.
00:18:42 - More management.
00:18:43 - This was a topic that wasn't even in the CCNP before.
00:18:46 - Oh. To where, now, I need to know how do I monitor my Cisco routers?
00:18:51 - That's SNMP.
00:18:51 - How do I make sure that they're up and running?
00:18:54 - How do I make sure that the bandwidth levels and processer usage
00:18:58 - and memory's not being exhausted and all that?
00:19:00 - That's a huge amount of what is part of a day-to-day Cisco administrators job.
00:19:04 - Never was even touched previously in the certification program.
00:19:09 - Assist logs.
00:19:09 - Sending messages to a server that notify you, send you a page, to do whatever,
00:19:13 - notify you if something is going wrong or prevent, provides an audit trail,
00:19:18 - so that you can find out well, "Who did that at 2 in the morning?"
00:19:23 - NetFlow allowing you see, "Well, wait a sec, not only can I see
00:19:26 - that my internet bandwidth is used, but it's all because of
00:19:29 - that guy in the cubicle over the there.
00:19:31 - What are you doing?
00:19:32 - Get off You Tube!"
00:19:33 - You know, whatever the case is, you are able to identify flows of traffic and classify.
00:19:37 - Again, all of this, this is like.
00:19:39 - I got to change pen colors for that.
00:19:41 - Look at that!
00:19:41 - And that wasn't even in the Cisco certification program anywhere before
00:19:46 - and now it's starting to be introduced in ICND2.
00:19:48 - Last thing is, I said more scandal prevention.
00:19:52 - Meaning IOS 15 is now the new standard version of IOS that everything's running on.
00:19:57 - Cisco introduced a massive new licensing model in IOS 15.
00:20:01 - And so they want you to know about it.
00:20:03 - Because that's a big part of what you do.
00:20:04 - So the last two things and then we'll wrap up.
00:20:06 - How do we train at CBT Nuggets and how do you get the most from this series?
00:20:11 - Well, how do we train you?
00:20:13 - You've been experiencing it.
00:20:14 - You know a lot of white board discussions.
00:20:16 - You'll see a lot of network diagrams.
00:20:17 - A lot of times they'll be prebuilt.
00:20:18 - Sometimes they'll go, "Oh ok, we got a router here connected to the internet
00:20:21 - and it's protecting an internal e-mail server from attacks from the outside.
00:20:25 - You got to block port 25, you know, and lock that down."
00:20:27 - So, we'll go through a lot of things like on the fly.
00:20:30 - You'll see a lot of, you know, key facts presented.
00:20:32 - A lot of live demonstrations where we're doing the real configuration
00:20:35 - of Cisco devices right in front of you.
00:20:38 - And I will say, let me partner that with this down here, there's no script for this.
00:20:43 - You know, you can tell I'm not reading anything.
00:20:44 - So a lot of times the demonstrations as I'm going through will get to a point where like,
00:20:49 - "Well, didn't expect that to happen," which is great because we get to go
00:20:52 - and troubleshoot it together and you get to learn a lot from my own mistakes and we figure
00:20:58 - out the solution together and go, "Oh, well that's how it is."
00:21:00 - And I think that a lot of times it's even more valuable
00:21:02 - than just seeing a pristine configuration pasted
00:21:04 - in that works every single time, for real world experience.
00:21:07 - The sessions themselves are real short and palatable.
00:21:10 - You know, 15 to 30 minutes, sometimes a little more, but not much beyond
00:21:14 - that to just keep you fresh and get a topic.
00:21:16 - And also, down the road when you're in a career in Cisco you might go, "Oh,
00:21:21 - what was that access list configuration again?"
00:21:24 - And you can come right back to it and go, "Oh, there it is."
00:21:26 - You know, in a little 15-minute explanation of access list and your off and running.
00:21:30 - So, my purpose, if I were to say my motivation is two purposes.
00:21:35 - One is knowledge and two is motivation.
00:21:37 - I'm convinced that people really do well at stuff that they enjoy.
00:21:43 - And they really enjoy stuff that they know.
00:21:45 - So it kind of partners together.
00:21:46 - The more that you know, the more you're like, "Wow, that's really cool!"
00:21:49 - I mean I can tell you, you know, going through the certifications that I have,
00:21:53 - I haven't been excited to get into some of them.
00:21:55 - I get in there and I'm like, "Ugh.
00:21:57 - VoiceOver IP.
00:21:58 - What's so exciting about making a phone ring?"
00:22:00 - you know? But before long I'm starting to learn about the Nyquist theorem
00:22:03 - and then showing like, "ugh," resistance.
00:22:05 - I don't need to know about that.
00:22:06 - And as I learn it, I'm like, "Wow, this is really cool.
00:22:09 - I want to explain this to somebody."
00:22:11 - Because it's really neat how you can take a phone call and turn it into bits and 1's
00:22:15 - and 0's and what's that whole process.
00:22:17 - So, that's a lot of my goals is, of course to convey the knowledge,
00:22:21 - but also to show you just how neat this is to be able to set up and build a worldwide network.
00:22:26 - Okay, lastly, how do you get the most from this series?
00:22:29 - Number one, repeat, repeat, repeat.
00:22:31 - The beauty is you have it there.
00:22:32 - It's recorded.
00:22:33 - You can go through it many times.
00:22:34 - I mean maybe the first time you just kick back and watch.
00:22:36 - Second time you start jotting down some questions and some thoughts.
00:22:39 - Doing a little web research on it.
00:22:41 - Third time you start trying it on your own equipment.
00:22:43 - I mean go through it as many times as you need to where you feel
00:22:46 - like you are getting a mastery of that topic.
00:22:49 - And as you're going through it, jot things down.
00:22:51 - I'm not talking, you know, on an iPad or on a computer,
00:22:53 - I'm talking grab some real old school paper and a pen, and write things down,
00:22:57 - because there is just something that engages when you start jotting things down.
00:23:01 - I mean it doesn't even have to be sensible.
00:23:03 - Maybe you've got your paper and I'm talking about configuration and you're like, "Okay,
00:23:06 - he said enable mode," you just write down enable.
00:23:09 - Maybe you just crinkle it up and throw it away when you're all said and done.
00:23:11 - I'm not talking about just having notes for the future to study.
00:23:14 - I'm talking about engaging multiple senses because you're retention will go way up.
00:23:17 - I mean, just draw things as I'm talking.
00:23:20 - Be like, "Okay, so he's got a router," you know, kind of repeat what I'm drawing
00:23:23 - so that you can get in that mode of just engaging in what you're hearing.
00:23:26 - Thirdly, I'm not going to spend too much time on these two topics because if you look at the end
00:23:30 - of the series, I've actually created complete nuggets just on building a lab,
00:23:35 - like what to buy, how much it's going to cost, what to use to study and all that.
00:23:38 - And study tactics.
00:23:40 - To where I say, "Well, here's the best way that you can study for these certification exams."
00:23:44 - But they are valid things.
00:23:45 - How to get the most is to build a lab,
00:23:47 - and I'm talking real equipment, not simulations or emulations.
00:23:51 - At this level, ICND1, I would really suggest having some real gear that you setup
00:23:55 - in your house, in your job, in your workplace, that you can work with
00:23:58 - and configure in a real environment.
00:24:00 - There's just something to having real equipment and non-simulation and nowadays, you know,
00:24:04 - the equipment has come down hugely in price from when I first got into Cisco.
00:24:08 - So, you can do it really on the cheap.
00:24:10 - Last two things go into what I was saying on the previous slide.
00:24:14 - Kind of that knowledge and motivation.
00:24:16 - You will love what you know.
00:24:18 - So, I always encourage you, dig deeper.
00:24:20 - I mean if there's a topic that I get into and you're like, "Well, I wonder if...?"
00:24:23 - I mean go there.
00:24:24 - Go beyond.
00:24:25 - Really get a mastery of it.
00:24:26 - Because you start to get a love for it.
00:24:28 - Think about anything that you know well.
00:24:30 - Like if you know rock climbing or riding a bike or anything that you know well,
00:24:34 - you're excited when somebody starts talking about it.
00:24:36 - Like when you meet somebody and they're like, "Yeah, I ride bikes for a hobby."
00:24:39 - You're like, "Really?
00:24:39 - Me too! Have you been on..."
00:24:40 - I mean you just go off because you're excited about what you know and what you enjoy.
00:24:44 - So, same thing here.
00:24:45 - As you know more about Cisco, you're going to develop a passion and a love for it that,
00:24:50 - I'm telling you, will skyrocket you.
00:24:52 - It's almost like I want to build a flow chart to where it's like, "Okay, dig deeper,
00:24:56 - you know fall in love, you know, land an amazing job,"
00:25:00 - you know it just kind of goes hand-in-hand.
00:25:02 - The more that you enjoy the better and better you'll do in your career
00:25:06 - because you're going to enjoy your career.
00:25:08 - Let me just wrap up by saying welcome to the world of Cisco.
00:25:12 - This technology is awesome.
00:25:13 - You're really going to enjoy this series and I hope when you reach the end you're going
00:25:16 - to be like, "Man, I just can't wait for more!"
00:25:18 - And get into the ICND2, get your CCNA certification.
00:25:21 - I mean there's a lot of opportunity in the future with this technology.
00:25:25 - I hope this has been informative for you and I would like to thank you for viewing.
