CCNA Notes Thread
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:
