This course is for Cisco's newest certification, the CCNA R/S 200-125, that became effective on August 21st, 2016.
Laz is notorious for his nonchalant and unorthodox way of teaching and has quickly grew his student base to over 37K+ students in his old CCNA 200-120 and an overall student base of 46K+ for all his courses combined. Not to mention his achievement in being instrumental in getting his students certified.
This is his latest course for the CCNA R/S and has everything one needs to prepare for the 200-125 certification exam. The course was produced in a very effective manner where the student would feel as if they are in a classroom setting and the instructor is speaking directly to them.
In Laz's style of teaching, the course is very laid back to make the topics covered more digestible and easier for anyone to understand. Whether you are a novice or just need a refresher, this course has everything you need to prepare & pass the 200-125 certification. Students will acquire the knowledge and practice labs in this course to make it transferable to real-world use, as a Cisco and IT Professional.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the student's responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer & VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. But students have more options that those. They can create their lab with real equipment, get BOSON or GNS3. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course. Please also NOTE: .pkt files are not up-loadable to BitDegree's site. This means you would have to replicate the labs here to practice and follow along.
This course will give students an in-depth understanding of networking, using routers and switches and their various configurations and connections.
