ICND1 Foundation Learning Guide, 4th Edition Chapter List

One of the major changes I made to this 4th edition for Version 2 of the Certifications was to rather dramatically break up the chapters! One of the things that has always bothered me in official ICND1 curriculums is these chapters that run about 200 pages long that cover a wealth of networking concepts all at once. I believe in studying a topic like this in small bite-sized chunks that are very focused to a particular technology.

ShowCoverHere is the list of chapters that resulted. This also gave me a great opportunity to create HD videos for each chapter, and to ensure there were plenty of review and Production Network Simulation questions for each topic.

Meet the Networking Ninjas Tech Editing my ICND1 Version 2 Text!

I was so incredibly lucky to get two of networkings best to Technical Edit my upcoming ICND1 Version 2 text. These two men have been inspirations of mine in networking for some time now and have consistently demonstrated their expertise in the HOTTEST of networking areas including security, route and switch, data center, and both of them cross vendors. This is so important because of course in the real world, you tend to find other gadgets outside of just Cisco devices.
