This course is for Cisco's newest certification, the CCNA R/S 200-125, that became effective on August 21st, 2016.
Cisco certifications do have an expiration date and they need to be renewed every couple of years.
Laz is notorious for his nonchalant and unorthodox way of teaching, and has quickly become one of UDEMY's top instructors with a student base of over 38K+ students in his old CCNA 200-120 (now a private course), and an overall student base of 53K+ and counting for all his courses on UDEMY.
Not to mention his achievement in being instrumental in getting hris students certified world wide.
Laz's courses are being taught in over 194 countries and some of these have been translated into other languages.
This is why he has become a rising star in Cisco certifications and Networking!
This is his latest course for the CCNA R/S and has everything you needs to prepare for the 200-125 certification exam.
The course was produced in a very effective manner where you, the student, would feel as if you are in a classroom setting and the instructor is speaking directly to YOU. Following Laz's instructions and using his recommendations for other resources like books, etc., has proven to be the key to lead his students to achieve success in passing the certification exam.
In Laz's style of teaching, (and there is a method to his madness), is very laid back and somewhat unorthodox, as you will see for yourself.
However, this is to make the topics covered more digestible and easier for anyone to understand. Even if you are totally new to Networking.
So, whether you are a novice, need to pass the CCNA or just need a refresher for your current job, this course has everything you need.
Don't doubt the Instructor with the proven record, but rather embrace his knowledge and his experience when it comes to this; after all...his reputation depends on your success!
You will acquire the knowledge in this course to make it transferable to real world use, as a Cisco and/or IT Professional.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer & VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. But students have more options that those. They can create their own lab with real equipment, get BOSON or GNS3. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course. Please also NOTE: .pkt files have been up-loadable to UDEMY's site via a ZIP folder. However, I would like to stress that replicating my labs will help students to practice, follow along and will drive down the information in a more precise manner where the students will retain more of the information for the test.
BOOKS USED IN THE COURSE: CCNA R/S by Cisco Press, Sybex CCNA Study Guide by Todd Lammle & The Only IP Book You Will Ever Need!, by Lazaro J. Diaz - These are ALL available on AMAZON.
This course will give you an in-depth understanding of networking, using routers and switches and their various configurations and connections.
