Beyond CCNA Serial Lab Workbook

Desktop & Mobile Compatible!  IOS & Android friendly!

This is our first offering in our growing Beyond CCNA Series.  In this Serial Lab Workbook we explore a wide range of technology that involve serial connections.  Many of you may have purchased serial cards and cables with your lab kit or already have these available in your existing lab.  These labs are a perfect pairing for that hardware and provide an in-depth, well-rounded experience.  The CCNA exam technically no longer requires deep knowledge of serial connections, but CCNA Security, CCNP, etc. still cover this side of the networking world.  So, this ebook not only increases your CCNA knowledge, but also acts as a primer for moving up the certification ladder.  We still consider training in serial connections as an essential networking skill.  Just because serial connections are not prevalent on the CCNA exam does not mean they just disappeared from the world.  They are still very common in data centers and networks and you are sure to encounter them in the field.  This is especially true internationally.  Don't just study for CCNA.  Study BEYOND CCNA

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 Serial Lab WorkBook 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.
