    Have you used the blueprint to study? If you are getting killed on topics you've never seen before it's time to hit the blueprint.

    Sorry to hear/read! Like others have said, your right at the cusp of passing with those two previous scores. I think the third time will be the charm and you'll get it next time. Just remember, you were at the doorstep and - next time - you'll have the right lock combo to get in. That's what I told myself after my .0001 fail and 1 point fail on ICND1.

    It's a new test....
    So there's Not a Lot of good material out there yet. (Quite a few people said the official cisco material sucks)


    If you want to make a "Career" in Security... then go ahead and do it.
    You don't need a special 'security' Degree to control that.

    You just a need a degree.

    You can always come back for the cert AFTER you graduate....

    I'd hit the other classes and then come back to it. That way you won't have those other ones hanging over your head and you can come back at it fresh. If you get desperate like me and you have the cash or work will reimburse you, the Cisco course really helped me out:
    https://learningnetworkstore.cisco.c...ns-v3-0-019451

    Super pricey but lots of good labs and practice.

    $350 to make sure you understand the topics even more and don't have to pay another $250 to retake again (and again). Worth it imo. Understand it could be alot for someone starting out though... Then again it isn't a gaurentee pass. I'll be purchasing this once I finish the CBT Nugget videos though.

    I'm going off noahp's word that it is good, haven't heard anyone else who has bought it. So I'll be going after him if it isn't!

    The other option(if you can get your company to pay for it) is to take the Cisco course through a partner like Global Knowledge. They have their own course and lab manuals not found anywhere else.

    Yeah, if I attempt again, then I think I'm going to purchase this. I asked the course mentor if WGU could get access, but he only basically said maybe, that it would depend on what price cisco is willing to sell it to them for.

    Download the demo and try it out. It's got 26 labs. That combined with CBT and Boson really helped me out. If you lived nearby, I'd tell you to come by and try it out. I'm starting to sound like a company shill, ha!

    @Aderon just curious, did you have problems with the big sim not working? I still see people complaining about it on the Cisco forums and I couldn't get it to work even though I was able to recreate it later and get it running at home after the test.

    @NetworkNewb I actually found a couple folks on the Cisco forums talking about it but I could never find a real solid review for it. Anyway, if you have problems with the exam and see that noahp34 stopped logging in but a noahq34 pops up on the forum, it's definitely a different person.

    Do you get discount if your company is a Cisco Partner? It was US $350 until i logged and now it's US $297.50.

I spent 20 mins trying to get it to work.

    Anyway, the Boson test is very similar to the real thing. If you understand all the answers and read all the explanations you will pass. Also, the Cisco training course is definitely sufficient and the sims in it are great it's just really pricey.

Just looking to get what I need and nothing more.


    .
    i am going on a bootcamp and it turns out it will be Implementing Cisco Network Security (IINS) v3.0 and so If that is what you need + i have cbt nuggets + chris bryant, and i will do labs as well and I have kit at work i can use, i am looking forward to this. please follow me on my own topic where i cover my journey for the CCNA Security

    Alright, so I finished up all the other classes on my degree. Time to come back to this and go for a third attempt .

    I probably won't be posting in this until after I pass this time, but I'm curious if any new study materials have come out since 02/01/2016? I'm going to buy the Cisco learning program, Implementing Cisco Network Security (IINS) v3.0 that everyone recommends. But, I was curious if maybe there's better books out now or anything like that as well?

    Apparently CCNA Security (210-260) Portable Command Guide (2nd Edition) is fairly new. I just got a copy of that and I've only glanced through it, but it seems to be a lot more to the point than the OCG. It kind of just looks like a giant book of study notes.

    I took the 210-260 exam on Friday and passed with a score of 980/1000. I had purchased the Implementing Cisco Network Security (IINS) v3.0 course and went through all 20 modules in order to prep for the test. I can truly say that it was a great investment and all that one needs to successfully pass the exam.

    I'm using that material as well now. How did you get labs as they are hard to come by haha.

    I need to know your strategy methods (everything you did and used) because I got my exam very soon

    what i mean by that is that i did the course via global knowledge and the labs are no longer available as they were only there for the week, but i got the book it came with and there is a 31 days before the 210-260 book, which feels like a condensed version of it; problem is, that book doesnt come out til June and Chris Bryant cant refresh the course til early May!

    so @greeneon, what was your strategy and materials used in total?

    how long did you study for and how hard was it?

    Anyone know of any other books coming out for this subject?

    Thread has been a good read thus far, starting my studies this week.

    This ones probably a little too far out to be useful. But on July 1st this will be available:

    http://www.amazon.com/Days-Before-Yo...ywords=210-260

    No idea whether it's going to be any good or not though.

    I can say however that I am thoroughly enjoying Implementing Cisco Network Security (IINS) v3.0. Having only just started on it, I can already tell it is going to help immensely. In the first 10 pages it's already covered some subjects that were on the exam, but were completely absent from the official course guide book. The explanations and diagrams are a lot easier to understand and overall I'm pretty excited about it. It is expensive though O_O ($350).

    No idea whether it's going to be any good or not though. - it is amazing from what i was able to read from it! i read everything up to the parts that in dev! however, i realized that the book is a abridged version of the book you get in the IINS course! which made me laugh!

    - it is but it is worth it. however, note that the labs you can only do while on the course and that is it.

    gonna look to take the test next friday!

    Thanks! I'm trying different resources.

    One good tip for people is to use the free trial of safari books online for the books like the ones listed and also for the 640 one as it fills in gaps

    also, one book that everyone needs to check out on SFO is CCNA 210-260 portable guide - it is very good - also i will be providing my own study guide that is condensed from all the material i have come across - i will make it public on google docs after i take the test..

    it is getting bigger and bigger, but i feel its very necessary as it is going by the blueprint and covers EVERY topic.
