Cisco Certified Network Associate – CCNA Routing and Switching considered one of the most valuable certificate in the Network field. There are other CCNA certificates as well:
- CCNA Security
- CCNA Voice
- CCNA Wireless
- And CCDA for Design
To be CCNA R&S certified:
Two Shots Deal:
- Pass ICND1 Exam; and
- Pass ICND2 Exam
Or, One Shot Deal:
- Pass one CCNA Exam
Basically, CCNA (R&S) has been divided for 2 sections ICND1 and ICND2 to make it easier. I believe Two tests (ICND1 and ICND2) are easier then taking One Compact Test (CCNA Test). However, I recommend visiting Cisco website for more information, every new version of CCNA (R&S) books covers the most important Foundation Topics for either ICND1, ICND2, or CCNA Levels. Besides, don’t forget to download the Exam Topics Blue Print for both ICND1 and ICND2.
CCNA Exam Topcis:
- Network Concepts
- LAN Switching
- IPv4 Suite
- IPv6 Suite
- Implementing and Configuring LAN and WAN networks
- LABs, Troubleshooting and much more…
Cisco Certified Entry-Level Network Technician (CCENT) is very valuable as start-up in network career. ICND1 training concludes CCENT requirements and meant to be the level1 of CCNA certificates. Passing ICND1 and ICND2 results of CCNA certificate.
CCNA HUB got one of the most known IP Fundamentals Courses to start with beside your CCNA books. I recommend focusing deeply on the Concept of each topic to grasp it properly; take your time to go through all Understanding IP Fundamentals sections. Understanding every article by order will prepare you with a solid foundation for ICND1 and ICND2 Exams.
