CCNA Notes Thread
UPDATE: Starting August 31st, 2020, I am going to be making notes on the official Cisco Netacad CCNA Courses, starting with Course 1 of 3, working all of the way through course 3. At that point I will not be using the same textbook to take notes on and will instead be using an online textbook. Please forgive me for any inconvenience when this happens. I promise I will get all of the notes I use to get the CCNA into this thread either way. Just know that some concepts may consequently be posted multiple times in different sets of notes. It will still all be organized in this thread. Thank you.

Hi everyone,

CCNA or Cisco Certified Network Associate is an entry level computer networking certification. The numerous courses and books on how to earn it actually go into a lot more detail about how networks work than CompTIA Network+ (a lot more). If you want to learn how networking works, CCNA is the ideal way of doing it. I have gone through numerous books and courses and I have found the best ones are the ones published by the original Cisco vendor that builds the networking tech that you are being certified in.

The material is very difficult. So, I decided to make notes on the textbook I am learning from and publish them on GS for you all to use for your own study purposes. I'm a beginner too, so I'm still learning the fundamentals. I wanted to give my notes to everyone for free just in case it helps someone.

After all, how can putting effort into giving and sharing go wrong?

You will find links to the notes below, organized into each chapter as I make notes on each chapter. I will update these notes frequently for both Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the CCNA Official Cert Guide published by Cisco Press. Cisco Press is the official publisher that belongs to the Cisco company that administers CCNA certs and makes CISCO networking devices, such as routers and switches.




I got a request for all CCNA Notes to be in the same updating thread so here it is. Feel free to reply to this thread with your own comments, suggestions, or revisions.

I will continue updating but here it is so far:

Volume 1:

Chapter 1:

Chapter 2:

Chapter 3:

Chapter 4:

Chapter 5:

Chapter 6:

Chapter 7:

Chapter 8:

Yes, will do right now. I didn't take that into account.

I put up a separate download link for MEGA but I also reuploaded to gofile in case anyone wants to try both.
