    Hello all,
    yesterday i failed from CCNA exam.
    i got 821 but it should be 849.
    yesterday night i begin to think what to do about it
    actually i was so disappointed
    today i looked for new books from amazon and ciscopress, looked for resources in the web, click after click, then i find myself here.

    Firstly, welcome to the Boards, cifinluk - you'll find plenty of resources and friendly faces to help you through whatever other studies your taking.

    Other than that, sorry to hear about the fail, but chin up, practice on the areas you feel you were weaker in, and knock it down second time around [​IMG]

    a score of 821 is no mean feat, and it shows that practically, you know your stuff
    maybe you got hit with a bad few questions, maybe your weak on one subject and had a few too many questions on it? whichever is irrelivent, the fact you scored so close to the pass mark means you have what it takes, and your doing things the right way, you just need to brush up a little, and you will be ready to resit the exam with new found confidence :)

    good luck, and dont give up!
    were here to help in any way we can :)

    Greetings, cifinluk. Welcome to CertForums. Glad you made it. I'm sorry you didn't pass the CCNA on the first go round. I've also taken and failed cert exams in the past and I know what a disheartening experience it can be.

    Besides studying textbooks, were you able to work on a simulator of any kind or were you able to work with any cisco equipment in your labs? I agree, your score indicates that you have studied hard and you came very close to passing.

    Use your experience with the exam to determine where you need to focus more on your studies. Can you recall any parts of the exam that you found particularly hard or daunting? I know the flash simulations can throw candidates off if they are not used to them.

    Pop down to the CCNA forum to discuss any specific questions or issues you may have on the exam. As I recall, I didn't pass by a huge margin myself, but all that matters is passing even by a single point.

    Again, welcome to CertForums. Hope we can be of service.

    thank you all for the support :)
    you are certanly right, (although it is not a good one) this is an experience for me. i will try to utilize this opportunity.
    there were so many troubleshooting questions. I was not prepared enough for that.
    And subnetting, subnetting, subnetting, i think it was the one that kicked me out at the last second. :cry:
    subnetting and vlsm were embedded in many of the questions.
    I can do the basic ones but some of them was complicated.
    i need more exercises about them.

    That all comes down to binary math really, ignore everything you read about mastering those 'magic' tables, as thats utter shite, and Cisco are doing what they can to get around this technique (as you may of noticed)
    Binary math sounds daunting, but its not, its maths in base2 not base10, really not all that complicated
    Master that, and you will master subnetting, VLSM, supernetting, and anything else relying heavily on binary numerics :)

    Good luck, and pop over to our Cisco forum (currently getting a revamp as im in the middle of revising for my CCNP renewal exam and gathering numerous tidbits and resources to populate the forum with) :)

    Bunchuza sorry to bother you,
    it is true that it is difficult but it is not very very very difficult

    my suggestion to you is
    if you know the subnetting a little bit and think it will handle
    it won`t (that`s what i got)

    and do a lot of simulation
    but just don`t make the configuration blindly
    important thing is don`t forget to examine show commands deeply before, during and after the conf.
    you will encounter these kinds of questions in the exam

    i wish i knew these before i had the exam
