    Default confused about CCNA (SEC)

    Alright, I have reading a bit on the new CCNA security and really want to go for it. I am already preparing for my CCNA, plan to take CCENT soon. Now the question is that do I have to take both 640-822 and 640-816 and earn my CCNA and then go for CCNA security, or could I just pass the CCENT and then go for 640-553 (IINS) and earn my CCNA security. From what I understand, the way it works is that you have to earn your CCNA first and then go for CCNA security. Please confirm if this is correct? or can it be done the other way?

    The way you are thinking is correct. You have to have you full CCNA first.

    If your goals are to get the CCNA and CCNA-Sec why don't you just change the scope of your studies to take the 802 ccna exam then take the CCNA-Sec after? That way you only have to pay for and take two exams.

    Didn't the price change make taking ICND1 and 2 separately the same price as taking the CCNA?

    Yes it did. You will end up paying $250 total when you're taking the ICND 1 & ICND 2 or just the CCNA 640-802 exam.

    Ah I missed that. Either way, taking one exam is less time consuming, fuel consuming, and less of a hassle
