    Default CCDA Exam Passing score?

    I am trying to find the answer to this, but am striking out. Call me dumb, but what is the passing score for the CCDA exam?

    Thanks

    I saw 790 as a passing score after looking around further.

    Can't recall what it was when I did mine, but the majority of Cisco exams are in the 750-850 range as a rough guide.

    Sorry guys, but I believe that's violating the NDA. Yeah, I'm not happy about it either.

    Apparently the score floats depending on how many people are passing. That's the rumour I've heard, and I'm sure others will have heard similarly and differently.

    Yep, sharing the passing score is a violation of the NDA. It seems silly, but they make the rules.

    It does break the NDA to share pass marks.

    I usually work on the rule of thumb of 800 points, give or take a few on each side, to pass most cisco exams. Besides, exam passing scores can change without notice i believe.

    BTW: Is the CCDA a tough exam? I have the Cisco Press book, but I could never get through a full read.

    I was the same. I managed one full read, well its was a pretty forced read! In the end i said stuff it, took the exam and thankfully passed.

    The exam itself isnt too tough and is poorly written in areas. i also had to memorise alot of facts, acronyms and figures in prep for it as its all theory based. Overall, i did not enjoy the CCDA and thought it was more of a sales pitch at times. However, the ARCH exam is a much more interesting read! i would def recommend the ARCH but you need the DA to get there.

    The CCDA press book is a bit dry. You may find this one a bit easier to follow:

    Sharing passing score = NDA violation.

    But I think it's okay to let you know that CCDA exam does not have any simulations. Which might make it easier depending on what kind of learner you are.
