CCNA 640-801 VS 640-802

 

26 June 2007 - Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), Cisco’s most popular certification indicates a foundation in networking and the Cisco environment.

One of the most highly sought entry-level certification exam was updated. There are now two paths for CCNA certification: CCNA 640-802 or Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1  ICND1 640-822: CCNA Part 1/CCENT  AND  Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2  ICND2 640-816: CCNA Part 2

According to Cisco, “The 640-802 Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is the composite exam associated with the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network.“

This piece takes a look at the one exam path – the old CCNA exam (640-801) and the current one exam CCNA path (640-802), as well as related developments with Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP)..

What is the new content? What has changed? How does the new compare with the old CCNA and CCNP? What remains the same?

It is hoped that this table will give you an idea of the basic differences and similarities in the two versions of the single-exam CCNA, and how both versions of CCNA compares with the CCNP.  Although this is an analysis of the CCNA one exam path, proper interpretation and understanding should help in your certification preparations.    

All the best!

DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!

     
1.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.

 

 
2.

Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.

 

 
3.

You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.

 

 
4.

But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.

 

 
5.

"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.

 

 
6.

Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.

 

 
7.

GO on the offensive now with your Cisco Internetwork PLUS.

 

 
8.

What is the use of ideas without action?

 

 
9.

Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.

 

 
10.

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
