What was that whizzing sound? It was you, passing the CCNA certification exam. After you've covered all of Cisco Systems' exam objectives in CCNA For Dummies, such tasks as following network protocols, routing, and maintaining network security will be new tools to add to your skill set.
First, expect to become familiar with the language of the exam with the expert guidance of your certified authors.
