  1. I have just seen Your Video on Youtube.
    It is so helpful I can't speak it out. I am a begginer of CCNA. If you upload video continiously as we shoulf read and prepare for CCNA. I am very thankful to you. Make this type of video. And sir if you don't mind I want to help you for your famousness.

  2. Thanx Mr.Ashish , I seen your YouTube channel it's very helpful. I completed my CCNA on 2013. Now I fill l am in completed. So I decide that I ll go through your guidance.
