My name is Paul Browning and I came up with the 60 days study system after teaching Cisco courses for several years in the UK. I’ve trained thousands of students in my classroom and online courses and it finally dawned on me that pretty much every student had a study guide and access to Cisco equipment or Packet Tracer but most quit before even taking the exam. Of those who take the exam around 50% fail. I realized what was missing, a battle tested study plan. CCNA in 60 Days was born.
The first version of the study guide and website has had amazing results. With the changes to the new CCNA exam I decided to rewrite the book and also hired three world class CCIEs to help make it even better. This site serves as a both a free resource to anyone who wants to pass and wants a plan they know will work. It also has a paid members section if you are looking for a video training course which maps to your book..
Here are the authors and technical editors for the study guides.
