    Some will say you should, some will say you shouldn't.

    I personally see nothing wrong with studying CCENT, but at the same time i would be looking for a junior networking role where you can build your experience.

    Yep, you just need to find a job where you can gt a junior role, and the more studying you have done the better you will be at that job when you get it. It will also help (in my experience) if they know you are studying and working towards certification

    I got 3 Cisco routers and 2 switches. It'll serve your CCENT and CCNA studies. I suppose it is quite a lot, but to me its worth it. Like i said it's not neccessary, but i think it is definately more useful.

    Greetings All,

    What are the best simulations exams for the 640-802 ?

    I took the ccna 640-802 exam and received a 785 and needed a 825 to pass (44 questions). I prepared for this exam by making a lab with two 2650 routers and two 2950 switches. I read several books and completed both the Boson and Transcender practice exams with almost 100% correct on all the prep tests the first time around.

    The problem is that the actual exam questions are far more complex then what the Boson and Transcender offered even though these exams are geared for the new CCNA exam.

    Is there a better exam prep option? Iam going to purchase Removed Braindump Reference 640-802 as i heared great reviews about them . aanyone tried them ? . let me know plz
