CCNA Syntax Questions

Unanswered Question

I got my CCNA back around 2002 and it expired in 2005 so it has been a good while since I took the exam. I can see that the style of the exam has changed, but I am not sure how much. Back then, there were quite a few questions based on memorizing the exact syntax of a command as opposed to principles and general knowledge. Is that still the case or has it changed? What I am getting at here, is that in order to prepare for the exam, do I need to put a lot of focus into memorizing the syntax of commands or will having a good overall understanding be good enough?

I have this problem too.

Pause as I think back to 2002...

The CCNA is still a technology exam similar to what you went through back in 2002. The course materials have changed significantly since then, but it is still the same kind of exam (mix of technology questions, simulations, and questions like what command does such and such?). You will need to know both the syntax of commands and have an understanding of the technologies to pass the exam today.
