I am taking the CCNA test on 1/10 and not to be a pessimist, but if I fail how soon can I retake it? A friend of mine just took it and he said there was a message that stated you have to wait 180 days to retake the same numbered test. Is that true? Thanks in advance.
If you fail the exam, you only need to wait minimum 5 days (not 180 days) to retake it. See Exam Policies http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le11/learning_certification_exam_policies.html
The 180 days is for those who passed the exam but want to retake it again.
