Anyone used Bombal udemy course for ICND1?
This one specifically: https://www.udemy.com/course/cisco-ccent-icnd1-100-105-complete-course-sims-and-gns3/
I've been wanting to study and do my CCNA for awhile, but with a newborn I need something I can do on a computer with labs and this seemed at least a start (My network knowledge is "ok", do you think a network+ is necessary before trying to get a CCENT/CCNA?)
Seems to have pretty positive reviews. If I got this...would CBT nuggets be necessary?

Gratitude:: 948/1000 Passed.
I took the exams yesterday July 23, 2020. It was my first certification and I would like to appreciate every member here for your support. So many people gave me comments when i needed them and even your feedback to other people were really helpful to me.
Let me admit that i took about 6 months preparing for this. i work 9 hours everyday (Not in IT) and i really had to incorporate studying in my schedule and utilize weekends very well.
Materials: OCG , David Bombal, Keith Barker's youtube channel , Boson Practice Exam.
In the last week a member from here shared with me a deck for anki and it was really helpful. Jeremy's IT Lab gave me his time especially when i failed the first boson test A and posted here, I could email Jeremy for each and every attempt (Remember am a newbie in this field so i was scared) Am shouting out to Jeremy. When his free course is complete it will be some nice free material out there. He shared with me this cheat sheets, they are well summarized and free. Hopefully i can find a way to support whoever created them.
Some advice to anyone studying for the CCNA is do not be in a rush, study and get the concepts, for my case i had to read some topics more than once to really have them clear. I guess i was slow to pick some new concepts. Also you need to have some consistency in your studies, there is so much you can do to understand these topics, if you try and read and you are bored, a video may work out, if a video can not help try a lab in packet tracer, by the way packet tracer is enough for the CCNA. Take some breaks and grind again.
I knew i had passed before even completing because of the flow i had during exams, there were no surprises at all for me during the test, more than 95% of the contents in the blueprint were examined. But for some topics you may really need to go an inch deep and a mile wide,I recall David said one time that its hard to understand things like Administrative distance if the only routing protocol you will look at is OSPF. Same is true for metrics and other things in the routing table. Keith Barker made me have fun studying, all his videos in the playlist are good but for me the labs for wireless were remarkable. He has some nice music as well hahaaa.
So if you put in the work then that passing score will have nothing against you. I did everything that i could think of to prepare and it paid off. Hopefully i can land on some panels for interviews in an IT Role now.
All the best to the people studying.

This one (I asked David): Cisco CCNA 200-301 Exam: Complete Course with practical labs

Initially, I was scoring low 70s, after some practice and reading I was scoring high 90s in the last week. I took the test before taking the Dion exams, and i think it helped me with a few questions but I did not make a huge difference for me on this 2nd attempt.
Now I am doing labs through this course in Udemy by David Bombal, hopefully, I will learn more on hands by the end of it and retake this test, which surprisingly is harder than I thought for a basic cert.

Packet Tracer is probably the best free tool to learn networking and how to configure Cisco products without actually buying a home lab. David Bombal's course on Udemy has some really good labs for Packet Tracer. I know it is a CCNA course, but practicing in Packet Tracer would of no doubt helped me understand networking faster years ago.
Another good way to practice is to configure your home router if you can. Even better if you can flash DD-WRT or Openwrt. It can be blackhole with all the configurations and research you may have to do though. If you do try this make sure you do backups of your config and don't disable your factory reset button. You can accidently lock yourself out of the admin console.

Interesting, the link states the wrong course (old CCENT Cert, replaced by the CCNA) but it does actually link to the CCNA prep. Serendipitously, on sale for 14 bucks!
I'm fairly certain it's updated somewhat in regards to the changes to the CCNA in February.
Pro tip: watch at 1.5x speed. :) He got a very slow, South African speech pattern.

any recommendations for online courses?
found these https://www.udemy.com/course/cisco-ccent-icnd1-100-105-complete-course-sims-and-gns3/ and was thinking of buying both the Cisco CCNA / ICND1 and CCNA / ICND2 Courses, they look pretty high rated

To add a little more to my previous comment:
I suggest getting a couple of Udemy courses and/or subscribing to CBT Nuggets.
On Udemy some people prefer Neil Anderson while others like David Bombal. Both courses are on sale until midnight on the 31st but even at the full prices (around $20 each, on sale for around $12 each) they are screaming deals considering the quality of education provided. They both have sample videos available so you can see which you prefer. David is from South Africa and Neil is from Scotland so some people find one or the other easier to listen to. Personally I don't have an issue understanding either of them and bought both.
If you want more labs then David has those, too and they are also on sale until March 31. Even at full price ($20) it's a great deal.
CBT Nuggets is a bit expensive and personally I'm not sure it is worth the monthly cost compared to what you can get on Udemy. Some people swear by them though so it's worth checking them out.
Most people find that the videos alone are not enough to pass the tests and therefore they purchase the official Cisco books by Wendell Odom too. You can get them as PDFs and/or as physical books, whichever you prefer. They're large, thick books with a huge amount of information in them.

These are the three I used from David because at the time they all came as some package deal for $11.

I used the 'Cisco CCNA / ICND1 (100-105) Complete Course: Sims and GNS3' for my ICND1 studies (https://www.udemy.com/course/cisco-ccent-icnd1-100-105-complete-course-sims-and-gns3/).
Currently using his Cisco CCNA / ICND2 (200-105) Complete Course: Sims and GNS3 for ICND2 (https://www.udemy.com/cisco-ccna-icnd2-200-105-complete-course-sims-and-gns3/)
Very thorough IMO (too thorough in some places to be honest) but I'd prefer go in to too much detail compared to exam objectives than not enough. Some chapters can drag on a bit but you can break it up with some labbing and putting videos to 1.5x speed ;)

Hi, I am 75% way through Neil Andersons Udemy course and about halfway through the Lammle study guide. So far Cisco Packet Tracer Software is all is required.
This has also been the advice of may others who have passed the CCNA already.
So don't let the hardware slow you down. Crack on asap!
