I am currently studying for the CCNA. I have taken the -801 in the past once and failed. I am going to go the two test route now and it will be the new test with the CCNET certification. I was just curious if anyone had taken it and if it was basically the same format?

It will be more difficult because they have added voice and wireless. Be smart and pass the 821 before the 6th of november. The ICND2 (640-816) is simpler than the old ICND because RIP1 and RIP2 have moved to the ICND1.

The 821 will be valid for 3 years and 821 and 816 are a valid combination for the CCNA.

That would definately be the way to go, but I don't think I will have time to get all that studying done before then. I work full time and I am back in school at night to get my Bachelor's. I have time to study for the Cisco but not enough to be ready by then. But that is definately an option. So if I take the old Intro(821)and then take the new ICND2(816) then that will also net me the CCNA? Maybe I will just have to allot more time to study. Thanks

Right. Maybe I will go that route. I have never taken just the Intro. Is there any configuration to do? Is it just initial config? I supposed subnetting will be big on there and the OSI?

I might have a solotion for others in finding more time during the exam.

Subnetting should cost you 10 sec a question there are some 10 questions about subnetting so that would not cost you more then 2 minutes. Subnetting in 10 seconds?

Yes its simple.

Write down the bitnumbers of the last 2 octets and the sequence of 128 64 etc.




for example give me the subnet and broadcastadress of

it's simple look at the table 22 is step 4

Divide 61 by step 4 and multiply the WHOLE NUMBER 15 by step 4 the subnet is 60 next subnet is 60 plus step 4 = 64 so broadcastadress is 63.255 (B-class)

61/4=15*4=60 next subnet 64 so subnet is 63.255

or look at the table. 19 is step 32

61/32=1*32 subnet= 32 next subnet is 32+32=64 so broadcast is 63.255

or /28

15/16=0 0*16=0 so subnet is 0 next subnet is 16 broadcast is 15 (C- class)
