    Before exam starts Cisco asks some questions. They ask about your experties. Just click on "I dont want to answer" option.
    I dont no if they make exam hard if you select "I can handle this and that independantly". Just for your information.

        I used CBT Nuggets. And everyday I work on Cisco SDM. So the exam was easier.
        Do lots of practice on cisco router using SDM. SDM has many features and its GUI based.
        If you are using SDM or ASDM for PIX then no worries.
        Get familier with protocols & algorithms and there functions.
        Also make sure you are well known about theat's and defence technic using Cisco devices.
        They are more concentrating on VPN & securing environment using Cisco ASA.
        They no longer prefer to ask questions about PIX.
        SND isnt difficult if you are interested in "Security" area specifically.
        I think SNRS is little difficult compare to SND....SND is just a general exam which tests your knowledge about normal security concepts. Not much to worry about this exam ...

        Cheer's,

          I just took this the other day and scored a 927. I used the CBT Nuggets and the Cisco Press book. Honestly the test was very basic from a general security standpoint. I'd call it a ciscoized version of the Security+. I had virtually no experience with the SDM and on my test I ended up with 2 simulations on it. I pretty good in the command line though and it wasn't hard to figure out the gui.

            Very Well done and great score......I am a different story did all courses and have exam freezes. Completed Windows 2000 and Server did well on PDA, but bottled the Microsoft exams.
