    Surely 'how hard' will depend on how familiar you are will the material.

    If you've been configuring Cisco kit for years then it might be said to be 'fairly easy'. If you haven't actually had hands on with any kit then the phrase 'very hard' comes to mind! :biggrin

    Harry's got sound advice, but if that doesn't help...
    Assume it is very hard.

    Most people I know that are past the CCNA (i.e. CCxP, but excluding CCIE) find the CCNA much more difficult because the knowledge base is so vast. It's not specific to switching or routing, etc... It's all of those topics in one exam.

    If you're comfortable with the material that the exam covers then I'd feel quite happy with the exam if it were me.

    Dunno what else there is to say... :p

    They don't give you a lot of time. I would advise that you know how to subnet in your head until it becomes second nature to you, and I would also advise that you get very familiar with the CLI.

    In addition you need to know how to troubleshoot and gain information using the various commands

    It is a BIG exam with a lot to know
