Studying for the CCNA exam often requires detailed knowledge of Cisco specific terminology or skills. This course will cover Cisco design topologies, troubleshooting IP addresses, examining switchport errors, and using CDP.
The CCNA exam tests the user for very specific objectives. Most of these objectives involve understanding complex topics which are universal to networking. In this course, Cisco Topologies and Troubleshooting for CCNA Studies, you will focus on some of the skills required to be successful with the exam, which are also universal, as well as some topics, which are specific to Cisco.
First, you will look at virtualization, building a foundation of how virtual computing works. Then, you will build upon virtualization by discussing cloud comping and how they are implemented into a network.
Next, you will shift gears to more technical topics. You will understand how neighbor discovery protocols work, then use CDP to map a network using a free open source drawing utility called https://draw.io.
Finally, you will wrap up by examining issues that can occur with cabling and interfaces, looking at misconfigured IP addresses on routers and workstations. By the end of this course, you will have the skills and knowledge necessary to take with you to be properly prepared for the CCNA exam.
Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Ross, but Curtis and welcome to my course Sisko to apologies and troubleshooting for CCN studies. I'm a network engineer with more than 20 years experience building enterprise networks and teaching people about them. The CCN A exam requires knowledge of a wide variety of objectives. Most of these objectives are universally applied to networking, regardless of the gear is Cisco or not. However, there are topics and skills that are unique to just Cisco, which are required to pass the CCN a exam. This course will focus on both critical skills, universal to networking as well as some topics that are specific to the CCN A exam objectives. These topics include virtual networking and cloud computing, making use of Cisco Discovery Protocol, or CDP, and interpreting errors on routers, switches and workstations when configuring and troubleshooting interfaces. By the end of this course, you'll understand what a bad mask error is and how to use draw dot io to map a network using CDP as well as understand terminology to describe how the cloud is integrated into a network. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with router and switch configuration. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Cisco apologies and troubleshooting skills with the Sisko to apologies and troubleshooting for CCN, a studies course at Pluralsight.
