Overview

The only authorized Lab Manual for the Cisco Networking Academy Connecting Networks course in the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum

Each chapter of this book is divided into a Study Guide section followed by a Lab section.

The Study Guide section offers exercises that help you learn the concepts, configurations, and troubleshooting skills crucial to your success as a CCNA R&S exam candidate. Each chapter is slightly different and includes some or all the following types of exercises:

  • Vocabulary Matching Exercises
  • Concept Questions Exercises
  • Skill-Building Activities and Scenarios
  • Configuration Scenarios
  • Packet Tracer Exercises
  • Troubleshooting Scenarios

The Labs & Activities include all the online course Labs and Packet Tracer activity instructions. If applicable, this section begins with a Command Reference that you will complete to highlight all the commands introduced in the chapter.
