I've done the first half of the CCNA course. I found the hardest part was working out sub-netting and the calculations involved to work it out. I guess the rule to doing well in this course is the same as any other and that's to study, study, study. If you're allowed extra lab time, get in there and have a play and do the online practice tests.

Agree 100%. Sub-netting is the hardest part. Know OSI layers. Download "Packet Tracer" from Cisco website. It's very helpful. Specially if you don't have access to a router.

Subnetting is the hardest part so far. I agree.
