Did Cisco remove subnetting from their CCENT?CCNA exam? I am using Cisco Press books and only found converting decimals to binary and finding host portions, broadcast address and next network.

Is that it now? where is subnetting done now?

Hi There

I cannot imagine that subneting has been removed from the CCNET/CCNA exam.

The ability to subnet is a very important skill and not just for exam day. If you choose to work in the IP networking field, then you will need to be able to subnet.

Exams only show that you have a certain level of understanding of a subject. They do not infer that you have expereince.

IMHO you should study and learn what is required for you job and to increase you knowledge. Not just what is on the exam blueprint.

Best Regards,

No they did not. Based on your question....finding host portions, broadcast address and next would have to know and understand subnetting to get to your answers.

No, I can tell you first hand that there are still subnetting questions or questions whose solution is dependent upon your ability to subnet.
