Training this week

This week I'm fortunate to be in training. Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices, to be precise. Regular readers may recall that I took the prerequisite Introduction to CCNA course last summer. So, hopefully I'll be taking the CCNA exam sometime in the next month and a half or so.

So far the class is pretty good. We're using the CCNA Self-Study ICND book from Cisco Press, along with the Boson Netsim software, rather than having a lab setup with real equipment. This would be too expensive, as this course is being run in-house. The Netsim app has its quirks but it seems good. All the students are getting a Boson license, as well as a Transcender test prep software license, so they can install both programs on their home PC. So it's a good thing I haven't blown away XP on Bagend yet. {grin}
