Do I need taking CCNA course prior to exam?


I'm considering making the CCNA certification. But the course it self is more than $2500 in my country. During my research I found plenty of material so I could do self study for this certification. I also have basic knowledge about routing and most topics related to CCNA. So my question is: can I go directly to a testing center (after scheduling) and make my test paying only the exam?

Yes you can, many people do it that way. Consider spending some money on Cisco routers - there is no better preparation for exams than playing with your own home lab.

hi~ i'm very sure that you CAN pass the CCNA exam by selfstudy it's really simple~~ ^_^ indeed , i finish all the ccna and ccnp course by myself i think the most important thing is to have self-confidence once you think you can make it , then you can

by the way as another guy replied , you really need some device to practise but as known , cisco device is really expensive(at least to me ^_^) you can try Cisco 7200 Simulator
