    CCNA Exploration

    I have got Ashman91 taking CCNA Exploration after the half term, and ideally I want him to do each semester in 4-6 weeks, is that a reasonable expectation or not?

    I myself have had to fit everything in around my home life and I am on Semester 3 now (did 4 chapter exams this evening alone!)

    Would you guys think that this is too much too fast or would you say it is about right considering some courses do it 1-2 weeks for all 4 semesters.

    I guess it would depend on various factors, eg:

    1. How fast Ashman91 learns & what style of learning Ashman91 has
    2. How much experience Ashman91 has with Cisco kit &
    3. How different the CCNA Exploration course is different from the 6 day CCNA course (see here for an example of it), considering that both route leads to the CCNA.

    Well I am now on Semester 4 (and did all chapter exams, just waiting on final exam for EWANs, then CCENT and CCNA qualifications )

    Ashman91 has some experience but not much, however I have him building virtual labs with packet tracer, as we have no Cisco Equipment in school, and its ideal for him to learn on!

    Depending on how much time he has to study it could be reasonable. If i remember correctly the first semester is fairly simple and shouldnt take long to get through, giving him more time on the other semesters. Depending on how much experience he has with networking as well could be a big factor.
    I loved packet tracer when i was doing my ccna, however it's still nice to play with real equipment if you can..!
