    Default Which CCNA self study books are good?

    https://www.google.com/search?q=ccna...ih=673&dpr=2.2

    There's a lot.

    How long might it take to self study CCNA and pass the test?

    I would go with one of these:

    https://www.amazon.com/Routing-Switc...&keywords=ccna

    https://www.amazon.com/Routing-Switc...&keywords=ccna

    Lot of debate about which one of these is best, but most will tell you to go with on of these 2.

    I think it is more important to pick one and start rather then to find the best information.

    If you start google searching you will find an unlimited amount of info on CCNA. It becomes overwhelming. I would recommend buying a single book and read it from beginning to end. Even if you don't understand it all the first time it will start to make more sense as you move along. A lot of people give up after the first few chapters because it seems like to much at the time.

    I personally use Odem's book the first time I took the test. If I renew it I am going to use Lammle.

    Good Luck!

    The exam cram for 125 was the best book imo. I read nearly every ccna book on amazon too. Id say its the main reason i passed.

    I'm currently using Lammle's book for my CCNA studies. Read each chapter, take the assessment tests at the end, re-read the chapter on the areas that still a bit fuzzy, then move on. You can then use Google, Youtube, etc. to help clear up certain parts that just don't make sense. I wouldn't recommend purchasing INE, CBT nuggets, or any of those type of (GREAT!) online video resources until you have a solid foundation of networking. I've read through Todd Lammle's CCNA book a couple of times, & then supplemented my learning with MANY online video's. Like Jon_Cisco said, it can be overwhelming. Just try to stick to one particular hardback resource, then use Google/Youtube to clarify any blurry topics.
