When my company was in sold in August of 2015 I decided to purchase some used networking gear and become CCNA certified. I spent the next year on various forums, networking site and reading different books until I was comfortable with the topics. Network Lessons was one of the primary resource that helped me successfully accomplish that goal. My goal now to complete CCNA security, CCNP switch, route and tshoot before the CCNA expiration date next year. Then add CCNP security.
Having been a member of other sites gave me a chance to compare the quality of the content offered by each which if the main reason I have chosen to return to this site.
