    Progress Report:
    About to finish the Part II of the book. Learning about basic switch configuration and management. I know I planned on just reading for the first phase of my plan but I feel like I may need to slow down a bit and do some minor labbing so that I can understand the CLI concepts better while it's fresh in my memory. Wanted to finish the reading within the month but life happens. Took a term break from school so I'm not under so much pressure. My goal is to have the reading down and be deep into labbing and running exam drills by November when I start school again so that I can hit the floor running and get my CCENT by end of November/early December and pass my first Cisco class.

    Your progress is going great. Consistency is more important then anything. Try to do a little bit every day.

    Definitely check out www.subnetting.net for practice with subnetting. Just following there little practice questions for 5 minutes a day works wonders for your subnetting speed. Come exam time the subnetting ends up being the easiest questions as long as you can do them quickly.

    Progress Report:
    I'm nearly half way through the book. Things have slowed down even further a bit but it has been an educational experience. Running into a lot of topics I'm familiar with but not fluent, such as trunking and VLANS. Getting ready to head into IPv4 Addressing and Subnetting which is where I'll be pausing a bit on reading. Thanks Jon_Cisco for the site recommendation to practice my subnetting. Wanted to ask, to anyone, what has been a good resource to learn and master subnetting? I've attempted to learn subnetting in the past but haven't really found a method that really stuck with me. Currently, I half understand to topic.

    Honestly looking at subnetting seems terrifying when you first start out but its mostly memorization of a few numbers.

    What I recommend is learning numbers so you can quickly recognize your block size. If you can quickly identify your block size you will figure out the subnet and broadcast addresses pretty quickly.

    MASK 128 192 224 240 248 252
    BLOCK 128 64 32 16 8 4

    Here is another thread discussing it. Subnetting Cheat Sheet

    You definitely will. Took me a minute to get it, but now that I got it. I look it and start counting and it's a wrap. Don't forget about the wildcard either.

    I'm also finding this thread has been very useful with solving other kinds of subnetting questions: Subnetting Made Easy

    I've been working from the questions provided at www.subnetting.net for the past two days and I find my speed and accuracy has been improving little by little. I'll definitely include 30 minutes of subnetting drills from this site before my study sessions every day until the day before my exam.
