Cisco CCNA 200-301 How & Why We Subnet Workbook
Over many revisions we have seen thousands of candidates take the CCNA exam. Time after time we come to the same conclusion on the number one reason that even the most prepared candidates do not pass. The reason is very simple... They run out of time!
The biggest place that we have found that time is lost on the actual CCNA exam is on the subnetting questions, when the majority of your time should be spent on the more difficult configuration questions. For this reason, we decided to build the ultimate Subnetting Workbook to get you up to speed on manual subnetting and blow right through these tedious questions! Our subnetting methods have proven themselves to work through generations of CCNA success stories. This is our best revision yet and this time we even raised the bar by including our brand new IPv6 section. This will prepare you for any curve-balls Cisco may throw you on the exam and have you one step ahead for the real world.
Not only does this guide provide you with tons of practice questions, scenarios and answers, but also builds a firm foundation and understanding of how and why you subnet.
This 120 page workbook was designed to walk you through the theory of subnetting partnered with enough sample and practice scenarios to have you mastering subnetting in no time. Armed with the knowledge and practice in the eBook, you won't miss a single subnetting question on your CCNA 200-301 exam! Subnetting is the most heavily hit concept on the CCNA Routing & Switching 200-301 exam and there is no magical calculator allowed, so make sure you are prepared by fully mastering the skill of subnetting.
