    Hi Guys,

    I took the CCNA back in 2001 and since then i've let my Cisco skills slip a bit as i've concentrated on more Microsoft related technologies.

    I'm quite interested in Networking and my employer is willing to put me through the 4 CCNP courses over the next year or so. Therefore i feel i should re-certify my CCNA as it ran out several years ago.

    Any advice on taking the CCNA these days? Obviously the objectives have changed but does anyone know of any "gotcha's" i should be aware of?? :blink

    Cheers guys! :biggrin

    Depends. Did they do simulations back then ? Because if they didn't, then that's something new you're gonna have to take into account.

    Matt,

    Check, but I think if you go through the CCNP it will renew your CCNA.

    Yeah SIMS are definately something i'll need to look out for.......... Boyce the CCNP only renews a valid CCNA..... but as mine expired in 2004 and i didnt sit it again or any CCNP exams it expired...... so i'm doing it again!! :rolleyes:

    Fun.... if you like that kind of thing! :)

    Rumblings have it that Cisco's about to revamp their CCNA exam. In any case, I'd recommend studying Cisco Press and Sybex, and getting some hands-on practice with routers or simulators.
