CCNA certidication ways ...

Unanswered Question
Jan 26th, 2009

Hello,

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: http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le11/learning_all_certification_exams_list.html

Also the Cisco Learning Network is a good place for training information. You'll have to create an account for yourself. https://cisco.hosted.jivesoftware.com/index.jspa?ciscoHome=true

Hi,

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

Regards,

Justin
