    Default New CCNA Exams Really Announced just now! Take a look...

    Take a look - I have TWO posts up my blog for the CCENT....Take a look at the labs in the new CCENT course! Tell me this isn't a BIG change!

    Understanding Cisco’s new Certification Path | Lammle.com

    Check out all the IPv6!

    This is the first book I am working on since it is MUCH harder and covers what the ICND2 and CCNA covered in the past!

    The new ICND1 looks considerably more robust..glad I got it out of the way first!

    That said, I'll still pick up some of the new material once it's made a few rounds/updates and study up for my own knowledge

    Very true, but I am disappointed that you dont need a CCNA to obtain other certification tracks. It just doesn't make any sense to work on an engine without the knowledge of basic tools. Well I guess cisco makes good money on test retakes so I guess they are banking on the fact that test takers without the foundational knowledge of routing and switching will bomb tests left and right. $$$$

    Definitely. I already had a game-plan with WGU to have the CCNA in September... now I guess I really HAVE to.

    I wish the CCNA syllabus had been this when I was taking my CCNA. The course topics are MUCH more relevant to the real world than what it used to be. If any of you actually plan on working in networking in the real world, these exams will prepare you a bit better.

    As far as not needing a CCNA as a prerequisite for other specializations, I might not agree with it but the candidate still has to have at LEAST a CCENT so it's not exactly like they can be CCNA:Security or CCNA:Voice without ANY Cisco knowledge whatsoever. From the sounds of it, Cisco beefed up the CCENT a bit so it's not going to be completely easy to pass

    Why would you want to 'hurry' to take a test?

    The point of the certification isn't the certification in of itself. It's merely a validation of what you know, and you can prove it. I don't think it should be the goal. Afterall, a certification isn't a golden ticket for a magical realm of happy money-place!

    The goal, and correct me if I'm wrong, is to get a firm, unshakable foundation in the topics that CCENT/CCNA gives you. These are topics that are true, and will carry you throughout your Networking Job.

    Sure, a certification is a checkbox in HR. But behind that checkbox, you're saying you know something about cisco. You'll be able to find the CONSOLE port, you'll be able to log into the router/switch and perform basic troubleshooting.


    Don't hurry the knowledge. My advice: Go through the exam topics, see the differences. Study what's the familiar parts: Know them. Enjoy their company.

    I think that they made a mistake and the exam descriptions are reversed for ICND1 and ICND2. Being sarcastic of course...

    Ah so if you have a the old ccent, you can take the new ICND2 or the old ICND2 and still be a CCNA.

    The new ICND1 looks indeed very robust.

    Are they going to make changes on the NP side?

    How does Job Market will treat Old & New Certifications ..Are they of equal value ? or Old certification will be treated obsolete & New CCNA exam certification holders will have any edge ?

    At First I Was Wanting To Get It Done, ButI Think I Could Benefit Myself More By Taking The New Test. It's Not About Just Passing The CertificatioB.C. It's Gaining The Most Relevant Knowledge.

    Todd how long does it usually take for you to get a book released when a new exam version is released? Also, how long does it usually take Cisco Press to release their version?

    Is it me, or does the ICND2 (the new exam) seem much, much easier than before?

    It takes about 4-5 months. Seems like a long time, but I'll have it out asap. I'm working on them now.

    If you have a CCENT then you can just read up on the parts that you are currently missing.

    If you want to know the differences just compare the exam topics of the new and old exams. No one can tell you anything further than that.

    As far as job market, it's no difference. Either way you are just plain old CCNA certified.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    Brett Lovins from Cisco said the following in a thread on the learning network: "There's a really nice delta document (what's different) going up tomorrow too. It will be easy to see the differences."
