Hi everyone, I go to TechSkills and have virtually aced all of my exam
prep materials for the CCNA.  However, I know that the vendor exam
won't be anything like my coursework. So, can anyone give me an idea
of what I should really study hard on for the next couple of days? I
plan to take the vendor exam next week. (Access Lists? OSPF?
EIGRP?....just give me some ideas that way I know I'm solid all
around. Thanks!)

I just re-certed last week and pretty much need to know all the areas
covered in their exam topics. Can not say that one topic is covered more
than any other.

I would say study what ever weak areas you have, you should know them. Also
be very quick at subnetting and hex/binary/decimal conversion. Exam time
does not give you much time to fart around and you may get stuck in a hard
simulation, so the more time you can save on subnetting and converison
questions the more time you will have on the simulations.

Thanks. Luckily I'm good at subnetting quickly. Hex is a relative weak
point.

What kind of $$ do you think I should/can expect to make (salary) per
year in Kansas City (with the CCNA cert)?

Once you answer a question you cannot go back.  Most help commands/keyboard
shortcuts are enabled in the sims.  Wouldn't hurt to know the full command
syntax tho...

thanks for that-could I use shortcuts ?for example
pass cisco-instead of password or
int s0 -for interface serial 0,etc?
sh run
copy run star ?
Thanks-I have been using these commands for about a year-I know the
full syntax but ...:)


Re: What can I expect on CCNA exam?
shortcuts work just fine. Don't expect too many simulator though. I
only had 2, maybe 3 at the most.  Be very familiar with Switching, MAC
addresses, show mac-address-table!  I had a simulator that was a 5
part question...very tricky. So, like I said, be very familiar. I did
pass though!

With no experience and only a cert you can expect to earn entry rate
dollars.  With moderate experience and a degree you can expect to make more.
And with extensive experience and a higher degree you make the most.

I've seen some Cisco jobs which pay only $17/hr.  Others pay $80k/year.  It
all depends...
