CCNA Certification: Two Ways to Get There

Exact same topics, just with different exam options.

CCNA Certification!

Pass CCNA 200-125 Exam

Pass One Exam: CCNA 200-125

Making the Case: Taking the 1-Exam Path to CCNA

  • Characteristics of many successful with the 1-exam path:
    • Those already in a networking job
    • Those who know parts of the content already
    • Those good at taking difficult tests
    • Those who can invest in much hands-on configuration practice
    • Those re-certifying their existing CCENT or CCNA certification
  • Other reasons to pursue the 1-exam path
    • Probably faster than 2-exam option
    • You do not care about a CCENT certification
    • You are sure you do not want to stop with CCENT, and plan to complete CCNA
    • Going for CCNA will keep you motivated!
    • Would a CCENT in X months and CCNA in X more (2-exam path) motivate you more or less than a CCNA in 2X months?

Making the Case: The 2-exam Path to CCNA

  • Characteristics of many successful with the 2-exam path:
    • Those NOT in a networking job
    • Those who know little about networking to begin
    • Those who prefer tests with smaller amounts of content
    • Those who would benefit from an earlier concrete goal (passing the ICND1 exam)
    • Those with no experience taking Cisco exams
  • Other reasons to pursue the 2-exam path
    • Easier to stay motivated with two major goals (exams) rather than one
    • Would a CCENT in X months and CCNA in X more (2-exam path) be better for you than a CCNA in 2X months?
    • You may want to stop after completing ICND1 and getting your CCENT certification
    • Would a CCENT in X months and CCNA in X more (2-exam path) be better for you than a CCNA in 2X months?
