  • Passed CCNA

    Today, After months of studying, I managed the earn my CCNA certificate.
    The recommendation I can do is quite simple: Practice!!!!!
    Use the CCNA prepcenter and practice the questions. Know what cisco can Ask.
    Buy a couple of routers and switches. Or just unplug them from you're network
    Practice with OSPF, RIP, EIGRP. Know exacly how thoose routing protocols works.
    Practice with VTP. Learn to subnet.
    Know how Access-lists work and where to place.
    Also practice with the show commands.

    I hadded 53 questions, where 2 of them where simulations. I needed to find out which machine was the VTP server, and I needed to create an access-list.
    My passing score was 872 while the minimum required was 849.

      Thnx David.
      If anybody want's to do there CCNA, I really recommend to practice as much as possible on routers and switches.
      Also practice the questions found on the CCNA prepcenter.

          I only can recommend you to study very hard and practice as much as possible. If you do that, the exam can be done. Before i started on my masterclass i never touched a cisco device before

                Re: Passed CCNA

                I also passed my CCNA yesterday with same score, I didn't care for the cisco press book by wendell, labs were not setup in proper order, cisco book went into details that were not really necessary for ccna, good reading. I found Sybex book more helpful & labs were better structured.

                I would have to agree that praticing subnetting, acl, switch commands specially show mac-address-table
                show spanning-tree
                show vlan
                show run

                routing protocols Rip, IGRP, Eigrp &OSPF.

                      Re: Passed CCNA

                      Pass it last mth. But its 801.
                      Cant be help i failed this CCNA last year and have a fear in taking it again. Finally pluck up some courage again. Studied for 2 mths and Cisco announce the new exam. But i think its not reasonable for me to go for the new exam. Ya because for fear too.

                      Anyway, I only got 2 simulation questions in this 801 exam. Both VLAN, unlike the previous exam I got 4 routing simulation questions.

                      Thanks to the prep for CCNA. I believe my network knowledge has strength by a great deal.

                      Now need to start on my CPTS .. study study study..
                      Just another MCP

                          Re: Passed CCNA

                          I also successfully passed CCNA exam last week. Surprisingly with the same score!!!!!

                          First of all it was harder than any previously passed MCP exam. AS it was already mentioned, there is no way for review and return to answered questions. Second, I totally agree with "more practice is a better CHANCE for SUCCESS"

                          I remarked that candidates have to be good in math. Most of the questions were based on calculation. ( IP subnetting, routs summarization, wildcard mask).Only one or two questions were related to ISDN and frame relay. VTP, STP are also the target
                          I used Wendell ODOM books from Cisco Press. I was very satisfied by this guide. The "easy math with easy masks" method as an alternative to binary calculation is very usefully not only for the exam but in day to day network administration also.
