    Yes, that will be a nice bonus as well. Hopefully the policy of certs renewing each other won't change.

    Looking at the Cisco website, the new exams will not renew your CCNA. Might just be an omission on Cisco's part but it still says to renew your CCNA you need to take the current CCNA/ICND2 exam or professional series exam.

    "CCNA certifications are valid for three years. To recertify, either pass the current CCNA exam, or pass the ICND2 exam, or pass any 642 professional level or Cisco Specialist exam (excluding Sales Specialist exams), or pass a current CCIE written exam."

    Does any one know whether this is the case?

    I would like to renew my CCNA using the security exam, I was going to do the CCSP SND exam but don't really want to go professional as I do not work with the technology that often.

    I don't think it's an omission. Generally the professional certs re-certify each other because they are multiple-test routes and recertifying would be a full time job itself.

    What we were talking about was the Professional level exams. I wouldn't expect the new CCNA exams to renew the regular CCNA seeing how getting the CCDA does not (and never has) renew the CCNA.

    Anyone got any idea when the new book for the CCNA:Security will be out? I see that on ciscopress it should be released on the 23rd but it still states "This publication is currently not for sale."

    Anyone know where else I can get the book?

    No clue. I don't even see it on Amazon yet, and they usually list things before they're released.

    How's it been going? I haven't seen you around here for along time.

    Yeah, not really listed on any of the usual spots I get my books from.

    Everything is going great! Work has me busy as hell and I havent had much time to actually study but I have gotten enough real-world experience that the BSCI is starting to look a little bit easier. I just haven't touched on OSPF/BGP/IS-IS/Multicasting at work yet but EIGRP/DHCP are my strengths now. I actually want to do security stuff so this CCNA:Security exam would be perfect for me to get before I finish up the CCNP. How have you been?

    I think its a good idea. not too impressed with exam fee's going up though.

    Hopefully it will allow people like myself, who are trying to break into networking without field experiance, to get a foot on the ladder!!!!....This could be my chance

    Does anyone know how much content is in these new certs? are they the same size of the ccna as a whole? or are they the equivelent to icnd1 or 2?

    I would be inclined to believe that it will have more of an "overall CCNA" volume of material. They'll probably be a bit more difficult than the CCNA to be honest. The further you get into a technology the more detail you get. I suspect that these exams will be pretty tough compared to the CCNA.

    I agree with Paul. The deeper you dig into a subject the more intense the learning becomes.

    My guess is compare your overview of OSPF in the CCNA to the depth its covered in the BSCI would probably be along the same lines .
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    They're letting you use the SND (for a limited time) or the CCNA:S to get into the CCSP.

    Do you think the CCNA:S is basically going to be SND? That's kind of what the overview looks like. Here's SND for comparison.

    Paul and networker, thanks for the replies, it would make sense.

    I wonder why they havent went for a naming convention like CCVA or CCSA?

    Either way i will be looking forward to them to see what there like.

    I love how Blog Spot (a part of Blogger) in general is now considered spam and gets blocked. Google sure has made a mess of things since their acquisition.
    I agree, Chris Bryant should host his blog on his own website so we can link to it on TechExams without it getting censored.
    I always use tinyurl.com when posting links to blog articles on Blog Spot. Many good and informative blogs are hosted on that site.

    Yeah, but on the flip side, many dump and cheat blogs exist there. And those sites can last for months at a time before they are eventually removed -- only to spring up again with the exact same content a couple days later.

    Yeah, we should ban Google.com too. Lotsa dump materials available on that site I hear.

    Default Re: New CCNA-level exams + changes to CCNA Exam Price

    [quote="127.0.0.1"]

    Cisco will be INCREASING the price of the CCNA 640-802 exam from $150 to $250! The price for the ICND 1 and ICND 2 exams will remain $125.

    Damn, is that effective immediately?

    To get back on topic...... how about those changes on the Cisco Web Site! It looks like the dust is finally settling on all the changes.

    I haven't check the Cisco Certification Manager yet to see if there are new empty check boxes on my Certification Progress page..... until now. ARGH!!!!!! 4 empty check boxes now instead of just the one CCENT check box!!!! ARGH!!!

    I know, but you can't blame me for trying to be an instigator. An all-out mod war would be intense!

    If I wanted to get involved, I'd say something like, "if you call 2-3 months regular", but I can be banned easy, so I'll just keep that to myself.

    What the heck are you doing posting on here then. Get back to work! The one checkbox that's been laughing at you for a year just spawned 3 children. Wait too much longer and they might each have 3 kids.

    Just out of curiosity, are there going to be new forums created here for the various new tracks or are they going to be lumped into the CCNA general forum?

    Still no word on the books... ciscopress.com is stating the same thing and amazon doesn't have em. I emailed the support address for cisco press to find out but no response so far... I really would love to get the Security book and crank that out over the next 2 months. Come on CISCO! Lets get a move on it!
