video trainings

other docs
– Cisco.com
– INE articles (esp. MSTP from Petr Lapukhov)
– Cisco Learning Network community
– a lot of patience and courage
– Incantations (yes they DO work, if done properly)
– track down your uninterrupted study time with Excel
– use 25minutes sessions with Egg Timer
– MUST use mind maps! Don’t be lazy, or think they’re a waste of time! It’s totally the opposite, they help you retain information with all their colors and pictures.
I hope this would help the community out there.
