The main CCNA exam objectives include:
- Networking basics
- OSI Reference Model
- LAN and WAN technologies
- Routing protocols
- Wireless LAN
- Using Cisco’s IOS to configure and troubleshoot Cisco equipments
In our courses, we will explain each topic in higher detail and we will provide you with hands-on examples. We will cover every concept, protocol or technology required to pass the CCNA certification exam.
Taking the CCNA exam doesn’t have any prerequisites. However, before you take the exam you must be sure you fully understand the topics presented in our lessons.
The questions in the Cisco CCNA exam have multiple formats: multiple-choice single answer, multiple-choice multiple answer, drag-and-drop, fill-in-the-blank and simulation.
The CCNA exam has a heavy focus on Routing protocols, Switching, Access lists, subnetting and simulation. You must fully understand how routing protocols and switching works, how to create access lists, you should be able to subnet in your head and you definitely must be able to configure Cisco equipments as required for the CCNA exam.
In addition to learning you should do some simulations before taking the exam. Setup a lab or rent one and experiment some network scenarios. This way you will better understand what’s going on with your network and how to configure and troubleshoot on different scenarios.
We, at CiscoKits, help you achieve the knowledge required to pass the CCNA. We are offering you instructor-led training, cram sheets, test engines, study guides and lab kits. Our instructor-led classes are held by highly-skilled certified instructors which will explain you in detail every topic you should be aware of for passing the CCNA exam. We are also offering you cram sheets so you can easily find the information you need without searching through the whole study guides. Our study guides are written by certified instructors and professionals and are covering all CCNA exam topics in an easy to understand fashion. We make our best to describe every topic as detailed as it can be and as easy to understand as possible. We are also offering you test engines. We carefully made these test engines to cover all topics in the CCNA exam. You will find hundreds of questions in our test engines. We are proud to deliver lab kits. With our lab kits, you will be able to setup different lab scenarios. Practice makes perfect and our lab kits help you achieve perfectness.
You may think why not studying for the CCNA exam with simulators and brain dumps. You could, but this is not guaranteeing that you will pass the exam. Simulators can be able to help you setup some topologies, but until now, no simulator is able to really simulate what happens in reality. Cisco’s IOS is very a very complex Internetworking Operating System. Simulators do not use the IOS, the only thing they do is to try to simulate it, and there’s no simulator out there who’s doing it well. Using real equipments, you use the real IOS, with all its features. Using brain dumps is also not a good thing to do if you really want to pass the exam from the first time. Brain dumps do not include all the information covered in the CCNA exam. You must have some previous knowledge or you must learn from other sources too. When you learn from our study guides you don’t need another external source of information. We are covering all you need to pass the CCNA exam.
When you take the CCNA exam, you will have only 90 minutes to answer all questions. It’s up to you how you manage your time, and you must do that well. Be careful because if you answered a question you can’t go back and review it. But, if you don’t know the answer to one question don’t spend too much time trying to figure out the correct answer. Simulations will usually take more time, but their score is higher. Take your time and do the simulations. Most important when you take the simulations, don’t panic. As we already told you, you will find a lot of subnetting questions. Before you go to your exam, practice subnetting properly until you are able to do the calculations in your mind. And you have to do that fast.
The Cisco CCNA exam can be taken in the Prometric or Pearson VUE testing centers. You must schedule the date when you’ll take the exam with one of these two testing centers. On the exam day, we strongly advise you to arrive earlier than scheduled and have a valid ID with you, such as a Passport or your Driving License. You will be required to sign a confidentiality statement. You can’t disclose the contents of your exam to other people. In the exam room you will not be allowed with books or notes, phones and calculators. Food or drinks however, may be allowed, depending on the training center. If you are not alone in the exam room, do not talk with the others. This can disqualify you from the exam. After you finished the exam, your supervisor will give you the certified copy of your exam result.
Because Internetworking technologies evolve very fast, the CCNA certification is valid for three years from the day you passed the exam. If three years have passed, you must recertify. However, if in these three years you attain a higher level certification such as CCNP or CCIE, you must not take the CCNA certification exam again.
In our lessons we will teach you everything you need to know to pass the CCNA certification exam. We will also give you real-world examples to help you better understand some concepts, technologies or protocols. This way, not only you will pass the CCNA exam, but you will also have hands-on experience on the topics covered in the CCNA exam.
