So the situation is, a new contract at my job requires me to have CCNA.. Sounds like If I don't have it by september, I could/most likely get replaced. I'm worried, not because of my knowledge, but because of the time frame to prep. I am also in the middle of moving and work full time, so that makes it suck even more.

I'm studying now out of a Tom Lammle book and a Cisco Press book... Also hoping my work will pay for training. Whats the best prep software to use? (Such as router sims and what not)

Give me any study tips you guys can please.

I am going the route of the CCENT because i have been studying out of that book a few months ago...

This is my second day of cramming and I got a 60% on a prep test on Cisco's website (since we are a partner)

if you have the experience then CCNA is a doable in a month
look at the objectives and see if you can get some gear to play with (depending on partner level you can get it from Cisco)

Does the contract state you must have ccna in order to do the work or was it more of your empoyers decision? I ask because if it's just your employers request and if it wouldnt breach the contract, you could mention to them about the two test route.

Maybe they would agree to you getting your ccent first and allow a little more time to complete the second test. It's worth a shot especially if employer isn't aware of the two test route.

If it is required, the employer may have to pay for it.

It is a very, very grey area. Depends on how the contract is worded.

Then again, it tests you to see what you really know.
