CCNA certidication ways ...

Unanswered Question
Jan 26th, 2009


I know that it has been discused before, but I did not find an answer tha satisfies me :)

I bought CCNA books (ICND1 and ICDN2). How can I get CCNA certification?

I know this:

1) learn at home ICND1 and ICND2 and take the final exam #642-802

2) learn at home ICND1 and ICND2 and take #642-822 exam an also #642-816 exam. In this case do I have to take another final exam #642-802 to become CCNA certified?

In other words: Can I become CCNA cetified with just these two exams: #642-822 and #642-816 ?

Can I learn these at home, or I must enrole in an CISCO academy?

thank u!

I have this problem too.

You have a choice of two ways of getting your CCNA 1) pass the 640-802 Combined exam or 2) pass both 640-822 ICND1 and 640-816 ICND2

You don't NEED to enrole in the Cisco Academy.

You can find more info here:

Also the Cisco Learning Network is a good place for training information. You'll have to create an account for yourself.

I used Train Signal's CCNA Video Mentors by Chris Bryant who is a CCIE. He is the best in my opinion at expaining the concepts in the easiest manner and doesn't overcomplicate things.')">')">')">')">')">')">')">

It's not the cheapest but once you go through it all you will see the value return.

I also used GNS3 for IOS simulation on my PC to do anything the included simulators don't cover or for practicing.

Hope this helps, Please rate if so
