There is a tremendous amount of protocol knowledge required to pass the CCNA exam. In this final course of the CCNA training series, Troubleshooting and Exam Prep for Cisco CCNA 200-125/200-105, you will first examine how to set up a home lab with physical gear along with some virtual options if you want to go that route. Next, you will explore sample exam questions to see what your exam questions may look like. Last, you will wrap up the series with a demonstration of a broken network and then use your CCNA skills to troubleshoot and solve the network issues presented. You will be able to download config files, build the broken network in your own environment, and troubleshoot the network along side the video demonstration. By the end of the course and subsequently the other 18 courses in this learning path, you will be ready to take your ICND2 or CCNA exams.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Ross Bagurdes, and welcome to the final course in the CCNA series, Troubleshoot and Exam Prep for the CCNA 200-125 and 200-105 exams. I'm a network engineer with 20 years experience building and managing enterprise networks and teaching people about them. There is a tremendous amount of protocol knowledge required to pass the CCNA exam. This course will examine the lab equipment options you have to prepare for the exam, both physical gear and virtual options. We'll review some CCNA style questions and examine some logical approaches to answer those more troubling questions you'll experience, and then wrap up the course by building a broken network and troubleshooting the issues in it to restore network functionality. By the end of this course you'll have the information to choose the right type of lab for your situation and have new troubleshooting skills after building and repairing a broken network. Before beginning the course you should have completed all 18 previous courses in the CCNA training series. From here you should feel comfortable moving into more advanced networking topics, like in the CCNP series or in many of the Wireshark courses available at Pluralsight. I hope you'll join me on this journey to wrap up your CCNA studies with the Troubleshooting and Exam Prep course at Pluralsight.
