After months of studying, I am proud to say I am now CCNA certified. I would like to say thank you to David Bombal and his courses on Udemy. I also spent alot of time watching CBT Nuggets and watching Paul Browning’s CCNA cram.
I spent some time reading through the Cisco official ICND2 book however, I found the material kind of dry and found myself not reading through everything in the chapters. So if you love raw material, go for the Cisco official book. Otherwise, I recommend reading through Todd Lammel’s “CCNA Routing and Switching Complete Study Guide”
All in all, it was a long and difficult study period for the last few months but I believe it was well worth it. Onto the next certification!
So hacker summer camp is over and it’s time to get back to reality. This was my first Defcon and it was amazing. I learned alot, got some ideas for new projects, and met some new friends. I didn’t grab as many pictures as I’d like to hope but I would like to show one; the “Ohio Defcon meetup” group that we had.
This trip made me realize that I have alot of learning and tinkering around to do to make myself better as an infosec professional.
Next year, I plan to partake in some CTFs and events, until then… I will be studying.
I passed the Cisco ICND 1 this week. After months of studying, I am proud to say I am now CCENT certified and looking towards passing the ICND 2 test to hold the CCNA certification.
