Product description

Network Fundamentals, CCNA Exploration Labs and Study Guide is designed to support your classroom and laboratory experience in Version 4 of the Cisco(R) Networking Academy(R) CCNA(R) Exploration curriculum. Each chapter contains a Study Guide section and a Labs and Activities section. Study Guide The dozens of exercises in this book help you learn the concepts and configurations crucial to your success as a CCNA exam candidate. Each chapter is slightly different and includes multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, and open-ended questions designed to help you: * Review vocabulary * Strengthen troubleshooting skills * Boost configuration skills * Reinforce concepts * Research topics Labs and Activities Hands-On Labs-This icon identifies the hands-on labs created for each chapter. Work through all the labs as provided to gain a deep understanding of CCNA knowledge and skills to ultimately succeed on the CCNA Certification Exam. Packet Tracer Companion-This icon identifies the companion activities that correspond to some hands-on labs. You use Packet Tracer to complete a simulation of the hands-on lab. Packet Tracer Skills Integration Challenge-Each chapter concludes with a culminating activity called the Packet Tracer Skills Integration Challenge. These challenging activities require you to pull together several skills learned from the chapter, as well as previous chapters, to successfully complete one comprehensive exercise. Use this book with: Network Fundamentals, CCNA Exploration Companion Guide ISBN-10: 1-58713-208-7 ISBN-13: 978-158713-208-7 Companion CD-ROM The CD-ROM provides all the Packet Tracer Companion and Packet Tracer Challenge files that are referenced throughout the book as indicated by the icons.
