Global Knowledge Boot Camp - How2Pass practice Exams - CCNA Exam
Hi.  I'm kind of new here at how2pass, so please forgive me if I ask a stupid question here or there.  I recently went thru the CCNA 5 day boot camp that global knowledge puts on in Dallas, TX.  The boot camp was great.  I really feel like I learned a lot about Cisco.  However, when I got back home and signed up for how2pass, I started taking the tests and realized that I didn't know nearly as much as I thought I did...  Smile  I'm curious if anyone else has went thru the CCNA boot camp via Global Knowledge and taken Cisco's CCNA test.  What were your thoughts on the global knowledge class, the practice exams here on this site, and the real exam?  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I've been studying several hours per day getting ready for my CCNA exam. 

I'm ready to have my CCNA cert!
Global Knowledge is a very good institution, but IMHO, any boot camp is not a good way to go, unless you have a lot of experience with Cisco. You should enroll in Cisco Academy, or if you insist on self-study, then get some books and real equipment. A cert will get you in the door, but I guarantee you will bomb the tech interviews. You NEED to know this stuff, and be good at it!


CCNA, CCNP, Cisco Express Foundations Field Specialist, A+, Network+, EIEIO, WTF, LMAO
I took the "Training Camp" 7 day boot camp in Chicago.  I knew nothing about cisco going in.  I am an MS network admin but started cold with cisco.  I agree with the previous reply and that these practice tests from how2pass are really good and the sims are excellent.  I also agree that the CCNA is very hard cert to get, but it is still just a intro course or a little extra to get you in the door.  I dont know how long it would have taken me to get my CCNA if I had not taken the boot camp.  It was the right thing for me to do.  EVERYONE that hopes to do cisco work must get their own rack.  I spent about $200 on ebay for 2 routers and 3 switches plus another $75 for DCE/DTE, crossovers and console cables and 2 transceivers.  Also I believe that anyone wanting to make cisco a career should at least have a CCNP.
