I am currently studying Cisco CCNA and have completed stage 1,2,3 exams which are
Network fundamental, routing concepts, and LAN switching and wireless,  next is the WAN ones

After this I understand I need to sit the official exam and get > 85%

has anyone sat it, if so how was it ? easy ? hard ? similar level to the online assignments ?

What mark did you get ?

There have been a lot of changes to the CCNA since I last did it, there are two exam options, take the one exam 640-802 or you can take it in two parts 640-822 ICND1 & 640-816 ICND2.


also No 85% is not necessarily the correct pass rate, with the CCIE exams for example I believe it is also weighted on how many people pass the exam, so they are interested in passing a certain percentage of people rather than all people who score over a set percentage.

taken from cisco: "As a matter of policy Cisco Systems, Inc. does not disclose the content of our certification exams. This includes exam pass marks, the exact number of questions on each exam, as well as the number of each type of question a candidate will see during their exam"

when I did the CCNA exam (which was about 2004) I found it was very highly focused on subnetting, VLSM and CIDR tasks. infact probably 50% of questions were tasks relating to these topics. I hadn't realised we weren't allowed calculators in the exam either so that took me by surprise but I still did ok. CCNP is a bit easier as its a lot more directed on one subject (Except for CCNP 3 remote access which was just h3ll!)
