Hello,

My names Sheldon I'm 16 years old (turning 17 in march) I just got my CompTIA A+ Cert a few months back passed both exams with 90+ mark, and now I'm going to be working on getting my CISCO CCNA( CISCO Certified Network Associate ) for people who don't know CISCO is the holy grail of networking.

IF ANY MODERATORS THINK THIS IS IN THE WRONG CATEGORY JUST REMEMBER I WILL BE ADDING PICTURES OF MY CISCO NETWORK WITCH ALLOT OF PEOPLE WILL WANT TO SEE... I HAVE OVER 300,000$ OF EQUIPMENT.

I am posting this blog to help motivate me and to help other people out who plan to do this certification.

I will be posting the dates on when I started and finished reading books.

I will also be posting Pictures of my CISCO Lab witch I am Currently constructing.

Overall I will be posting as much as I can when I can because I do have a busy schedule I have school, work and family.
then ill start on the second book... I am reading the older books first then I will start to read the newer books I just ordered them. And if your wondering how I am paying for all this i got my school princible to pay for all my books and exams. As for the CISCO Equipment, its my uncle who owns the equipment I'm just borrowing it.

Good luck to you sir, CISCO is not easy stuff, ill probably study for a year or so before trying to test, just to let it sink in, probably read the books at least 2-3 times each.

I wanna gear up for my CISSP which i plan to get in about 8 years (10 years required documented expierence in order to take test, and the test is about 1k dollars)

Good luck! I'm currently in college, and taking Cisco 2. Cisco has a Net Academy, you should check that out to, to see if you can enroll. It has a lot of practice exams and such. Good luck, I'll be taking mine in another year or so. :mrgreen:

Make sure you can calculate subnets back and forth in your head with one hand tied behind your back, and the CCNA is a piece of cake. ;)

not bad gear at all. When I started my CCNA i also got a couple 2501's and later borrowed a friends 2924 and(with a friends advice) got a 1721. I am now working on my switching test for my ccnp. by the way a friend of mine got his CCNA a few years ago when he was a lil older then you(hes 22 now) and hes almost CCIE and without any college makes 6 figures.

Anyway kudos to taking the initiave to take cisco on. If you wanna chat or something about it by all means.

Another thing it might be worth checking out is dynagen/dynamips. If you have the IOS images(and even pix images now), you can load virtual routers(pretty much the same thing as vmware does for windows/linux).

Oh yeah, what are you running on that server?
