    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone can confirm that the original CCNA exam is set to end on the 31st of July?
    I have been studying for the CCNA at college and just recently heard that this is to end soon :( I have been using the official CCNA book and online academy , can anyone recommend any other good books so I can get this passed?

    Thanks in advance
    Leo

    Not aware of anything m8, nothing when Googled either - sure it's not just your college that's making changes ?

    Books :

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/CCNA-Certif...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243251430&sr=8-1

    No vouchers around I'm aware of tho' rumours from the instructor on my CommSupport course that there is supposed to be a "second shot" type thing available from Pearson Vue (can't seem to find it on their website tho') - you just buy the exam as normal on Pearson Vue, book the test centre and off you go.

    The second shot thing is quite limited as far as I'm aware, in that it is only available for people whose certs have expired to retake... :cry:

    ^ Do you know if the re-take has to be taken by 20th July or the first exam has to be scheduled before then?

    just got word back from Cisco,
    the 640-801 exam is retiring on the 31st july 2009 :(
    because the college has screwed up my CCNA course ( sems 1-3 were done in v 3.1 and sem 4 in exploration) theres no way i will be ready to sit this exam before time runs out :( two years basicly wasted as I will have to start from scratch again on the exploration course so i can sit the 640-802 exam

    The 640-801 was retired on Nov. 6, 2007
    The current CCNA exam is 640-802

    The only exception that I know of is if you were enrolled in the Cisco Academy before the expiration took place, an extension was permitted to write the older material. Though, I don't have the details on that.
