You will find your motivation.”

Teach it. You can teach it if you can. Spend some time explaining the concepts in the exam objectives to someone. If the concepts you are explaining make sense to the person you are teaching, you are ready to take the CCNA exam.

Exam objectives. This is a checklist that will help you ensure you have covered all the bases. You should review any areas you are not confident in.
