There is no need to fear the test. There are no negative marks for wrong answer. All answers are final; you cannot return to a question once you have answered it. Thus each question has to be carefully considered. The practical can be done at your convenience. Practice as often as you can and save time during the certification examination. Good practice will provide better time management and make sure that there is sufficient time to answer the multiple choice and theory questions.
The CCNA Certification Exam (640-802 CCNA) has evolved over time and it is no longer sufficient to just rely on one kind of CCNA study material (usually books) to prepare for the exam. I will outline several CCNA preparation materials which are essential if you wish to ace the exam through self-study.
CCNA Lab Simulation or Lab Equipment
Given the amount of emphasis on the 2-3 CCNA simulation questions in the actual exam, it is important to get some hands-on experience in the configuration of Cisco IOS devices. If you’re lucky enough to get access to actual lab equipment, that would be ideal. However, for the typical CCNA candidate real equipment would not be an option. Thankfully there are a few cost effective CCNA simulators around which cover sufficient ground for the exam.
Time management is extremely important during the CCNA exam. Typically you will have to answer 50-60 questions in a 90 minute period. This includes 2-3 simulation questions and several other time consuming questions. The best practice exams have a simulation engine to allow for you to get a feel for the real exam. Some of the good CCNA books also come included with a simulation engine and practice test questions.MCITP Training
