Hi, I'd like to thank everyone who posted to this site.  I've been
checking this Newsgroup for about 1 month and it really helped.  I took
the 640-801 and failed (by 5 points) the 1st time.  I just took it
again today and passed with 922/1000.  It feels really really good to
pass!  I studied for about 2 months (about 4 hrs per day), and it's
finally over (I still can't believe it).  Here's my two cents on how to
pass the exam:

(1) Purchase the router/switch simulation software (if you don't have a
good lab).  I purchased a used copy of RouterSim NetVis4.1 from a guy
in Missouri for $100.00, and that was the key to passing the sim

(2) Purchase the 640-801 sample tests from (
There are about 800 questions.  Go over it two to three times.

(3) Purchase the Sybex 640-801 and the Cisco press book.

(4) Know NATing well.

(5) Study for 4 hrs a day for 1 month.

I almost had a meltdown during the exam (2nd time), but I kept it
together.  Visualize success and you will conquer it!

Best of luck,

When you purchase the 640-801 exam from, you have a
one year download access to the exact same exam.  They update the
sample questions about every 2 to 3 months.  I just downloaded the
latest sample questions (in PDF format) from the site (I think the
latest update for 640-801 is dated 08/25/05).  You may want to call
them up also just to double-check my info.

Good luck,

I have never seen such hijacking. This forum is horrible.
Congrats on the CCNA. I agree with your suggestions.
Most people fail the first time because they run out of time.
