In 2000 I successfully passed the old 604-501 CCNA exam however I failed twice trying to re-certify and would like some input on how to improve my weak areas. For the first test I studied with the Exam Cram and CCNA for Dummies and failed horribly with a 796. After that I purchased the Cisco Press Flash Card book and another Exam Cram book full of nothing but questions. I improved my score a lot but still failed with a 829. I have since bought the Cisco Press 2 book study guide.
Would I be better off taking the Intro & ICND test as opposed to the one 604-801 exam? Or should I just focus on improving in Planning & design, and Technology? Anyways, here is a breakdown of my two tests:
Planning and Design 62%
Implementation and Operation 80%
Planning and Design 66%
Implementation and Operation 75%
Any input greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance...
