Beyond CCNA - CCNP Primer Lab Workbook

Desktop & Mobile Compatible!  IOS & Android friendly!

This is our second offering in our growing Beyond CCNA Series.  With this 230+ page lab workbook we built a strong collection of labs that we feel serve as a good introduction to many of the technologies you will see in the CCNP Enterprise Curriculum.  The goal and focus of this lab workbook is to smooth the transition from CCNA to CCNP.  With this lab workbook complimenting your CCNA training, you will already have the building blocks in place to charge right into CCNP fully prepared.  If you do not have serial connections (cards and cables) in your CCNA Lab, you will need those to work on these labs.  There are also some labs that work with an ASA Firewall, which is another easy addition to any CCNA Lab.  If you need help matching that hardware to your gear, just let us know and we will be more than happy to get you set right up!    

With this release as well as all of our other eBook offerings, we took things a step further by upgrading to our new awesome eBook reader through LockLizard.  This is the same engine that Cisco actually uses to protect and distribute their corporate documents. This makes it extra cool because it is a format you will see in the field as a working network engineer.  This new ebook reader works on multiple platforms such as PC, MAC, IOS, Android, etc. We include 2 activations with each purchase so you can install it on a desktop AND a mobile device, for example. On top of that you can highlight, make notes and work directly with your document.  We know you will love it!

The CCNP Primer is designed to work hand-in-hand with our other CCNA offerings listed in the Training and Media Section of the site.  We highly recommend pairing these books together for the best experience.

There is also an option to pay a small up-charge to enable a single, one time printing right so you can print this off yourself.  If you go this route, we highly recommend that you use a laser printer with adequate toner and have lots of paper on hand.  It is a lot of pages.
