The Cisco ICND books are only good until February, when the new version of the exam replaces the current version.
Might not be the best place to ask for this but I recently started a job on first line support and I'm looking for some kind of reading materials/books to increase my IT skills. Anyone have any recommendations? Or anything from humble? Things like MS365, AD, Skype etc, any other skills I could start learning, just managed to get my foot into IT but overwhelmed

It can be very overwhelming in the world of IT.

If you're just starting out in first line support now, try and work out where your passion is. You could naturally progress on to second line support by being the best you can be in your current role; have a clear minimum data set and diagnostics done from what you're restricted to do.

If you know what you want to do, (i.e, networking), start to look up the Cisco roadmap and start with the CCNA A+ certification. You can then divert down a speciality once you've achieved that.

The only thing I'd say about the latter is you won't really have a chance to use those skills on first line support so as the old saying goes, use it or lose it.

I wish you all the luck!

Definitely agree with following your passion, but luck favours the prepared!
if you can't pass this exam give up.

If you can't answer a question after 4 weeks of study such as which one of these is fibre :

100 base T
10 base t
50 base T
or 100 base Fx

Then yeah just forget it.

In fact i'll add to that, CCNA is quite easily achievable without having a clue how to set up a network.

Search up devops and do not silo yourself to solely to operations but try to get some on both sides of the equation.
Thanks

Plugging two computers together with a crossover cable is considered a network and if you can’t do that you definitely won’t be able to pass a CCENT exam never mind a CCNA.

The industry is crying out for Cyber Security apprentices at the moment, I work for a government owned company and see it hear it all the time. It’s heavy going but if you have any interest in that area I’d maybe check out the apprentice schemes available.

If you want to get ahead in the field, focus on Cyber Security as mentioned above and also Cloud services such as Azure or AWS.

Is it’s case of just googling for the apprentice schemes or would you recommend a particular place to look?

Up here in Cumbria there is a company that does it but I’m willing to bet you’re not from up here... I’d just google cyber security apprenticeship schemes for your local area and see what comes up. Good luck mate

"’I'd maybe check out the apprentice schemes available."

But that's purely depends upon your age though, etc etc, right?, or ...
