About CISCO exam Preparation

A good place to start is, of course, the Cisco Networking Academy. Taking courses that align with your certification path will be instrumental in you building your foundational knowledge. Getting your time with certified instructors, lab practicing, and learning from your peers.

Cisco also offers the Cisco Learning Network with a wealth of online resources including:

  • Certification pages
  • Exam topics
  • Study materials
  • Study groups

On the CLN you will also find online study forums which will expose you to Cisco certified professionals and other exam candidates; great places to ask questions, exchange information and get clued up about exam topics and approaches.  You can team up with study partners, attend classes, or even register for a self-paced boot camp.

Another good resource is the Lab Exam Tutorial, which can help you understand the different kinds of questions you might come across in your certification exams.

Beyond CLN you will find a world of online groups and communities focused on Cisco certification. From social communities on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to Cisco User Groups, through forums, and even online study guides or books, it is a good idea to gain as much information and advice as you can. Following hashtags that are dedicated to the certification topics can be a great way to find a community.

Jamal Sheikh Construction Engineer

I did PMP exam preparation from Netkom Learning and it was an exceptional experience. Honestly, I was very skeptical earlier either to enroll in this course or not as I have heard many rumors about PMP preparation as most of the educational institute fails to deliver what needed to clear exam. However, I am glad that I enrolled in Netkom for this course. My experience went exceptional. The training approach is completely practical and the trainer is highly professional and possesses knowledge and skills that needed to clear PMP exam in 1st attempt.

I consider Netkom Learning as one of the best training institute in Pakistan where you can learn from practitioners and real strategists. For me enrolling for data science is the best decision of my life. My instructor is passionate and keen to teach not just base on his experience but also about the world’s best practices in different sectors. What I find best about Netkom is their case study approach where they share real time client’s cases to help us understand concepts and scenarios of the modern world. I highly Recommend Netkom Learning. You can blindly trust them.
