DAT FEEL WHEN CCENT


FUCK YEAH BITCH, WHO BILL GATES HERE?

Seriously now, coming from a country that has 300$/month average salaries giving 150$ for cisco exam was really a giant pressure for me. I studied real hard and hopefully i will find a job soon when i get my ccna.

Wish me luck anons and thanks for advices some time ago. We're all gonna make it.

If some people want to start learning for ccna or ccent i'm here to answer your questions

man, i'm so happy now.
>>
>>52900384
How long did you study before taking the test?
>>
>>52900397
around 2 months, but i was working on some other things. If you knock yourself out and study all day (and if you're native english speaker) you can do it in a month, if you literally don't know anything about networks before that

If you want i can tell you what materials i used for learning
>>
tfw no ccne 120k salary
>>
>>52900447
oh, ill be happy with any salary, anything is better than being neet
>>
Congrats bro. Ccna booked in a month, definitely helps on the cv. What materials did you use?

Where u from russia?
>>
>>52901599
>What materials did you use?

Odom's and Lammle's books. Plus a little bit of Ine.com and cbt nuggets video tuts

Emulators: Boson Netsim and GNS3 (i surprsingly found Boson much more comfy to work in)

>>52901707
Nah, not even close India
>>52901736
>Good luck OP if this is your first venture into networking.

Yeah, it's my first venture in this world. Quite interesting i gotta say

>>52901966
4 semester course? That's an overkill for sure. Self-studied for 2 months, could've done it in less if i didn't do other work

>>52903979
>Best way to learn for CCENT?

Read above books, repeat in emulator (or real equipment if you have money to buy, but for ccent/ccna i think emulators are perfectly fine). Repeating commands in emulator is REALLY important. Really.

>Also, how hard is the actual exam?

Not that hard (i expected more questions requiring to write commands), if you want i can write this in more detail, it's kinda specific
>>
>>52904058
>what was the testing center like?

Quite professional, considering how shit-tier my country is. You first create profile on Pearson Vue, schedule an exam (you can re-schedule as many times as you want, just do it 24 hours before an exam), choose test center (i chose the one closest to my house), arrive there with ID, they take a pic of you, put you in some kind of room with pc and paper for calculations. Exam is really idiot-friendly, first there's 15min tutorial on how to do it, there's no way to make a mistake of doing something wrong. I got 20 min more for being non english speaker
>>
>>52903636
what does this even mean

Please do, i'm sure it would help a few anons who are lurking this thread.
>>
>>52904414
you didn't use Packet Tracer?
>>
>>52904698
Well, the majority of the exam is standard ABC questions (you often get like 6 answers and they ask for 2 or 3 correct ones). After that, you have questions with pictures (network topologies) where some situation is presented and you have to figure out where the frame/packet will go to or where the error.

After that you have also questions with pictures where console commands are presented and they ask what will happen because of these commands (answers are ABC...)

After that you have questions where you have like 4 empty spaces on the right and bunch of fields in the left and you have to connect the right field with the empty slot. Kinda like draw a line from one right sentence to the other but instead you draw whole rectangle

And finally, the most fucked up ones, actual emulator questions, where you have to enter routers and switches and run commands in CLI to figure out wtf is happening, these are by far the hardest ones. You have to use all of your knowledge to figure out these ones

I think that's all
>>
>>52904731
I didn't even though i have it installed. It's alright, but i already got used to Boson and didn't want to switch. Plus there's bunch of labs in Boson one so i used those ones also. If you dl that one make sure you dl the latest one (i think 10.10)

FUUUCK I'M DUMB

I guess I can do it again, but it costs fucking 2.5 times in here compared to what you paid OP.
>>
>>52904900
Dude, you're supposed to log in into cisco.com (or maybe pearson) and just validate that you have passed and say to send the cert to your home address

I thought the price is the same throughout the world.

Whole CCNA =300$, CCENT =150$
>>
>>52900384
POO
IN
THE
LOO
>>
>>52904792
what's the minimum score to pass, how much time are you given. for the simulator questions can you use the tab button?
>>
>>52904821
oh i already have mine, the courses were part of highschool. we used packet tracer and packet tracer only, but there was a missing feature in packet tracer once, i forget what it was but i think it had to do with encryption or something
>>
>>52904731

Nobody uses packet tracer.

Install Linux and use GNS3 with IOUs
>>
>>52905039

Not anon, but when I wrote it the minimum was 85%
>>
>>52904792
On those emulator questions, is the contextual help available? Do you have to spell every command out?
>>
>>52905039
800+ out of 1000. But the grading is pretty mysterious, i didn't know what questions i did wrong and how much points each question gets

i had around 2 hours but i got (i think) 20 minutes more for being non english speaker.

in simulator questions i couldn't use tab, plus some commands were turned off (for example they clearly wanted for me to use sh interfaces and they forced me that command by turning off sh running-config, sh ip protocols, sh ip int brief etc

i think you can use ? command but i'm not sure because i figured out the right command and i didn't need it
>>
>>52905093

Context help works in CCNP but I can't remember CCNA. You need to type in the full command, no shortcuts, American English. Cisco's emulation software is notoriously picky.
>>
>>52905177
I am so fucked.

>tfw address is "Adresse" in German
>always forget the second D on these questions
>>
>>52904939

>I thought the price is the same throughout the world.

Cisco and Pearson are fucking over us Canadians right now.

A month ago I paid nearly $400 to take the CCNP ROUTE test
>>
>>52905202
Practice in emulators and always type full commands, that's the only solution

>>52905208
I'm now looking at cisco pricing, professional ones cost 250
>>
>>52905243

>I'm now looking at cisco pricing, professional ones cost 250

That's in American dollars tho. They don't tell you that until your payment goes through. I think I had to pay taxes too
>>
>>52900384
Grats!
>>
>>52905202

I mean if you're writing the CCNA most of the commands they want you to run are show commands.

You don't configure too many things in simulations until you get to the CCNP level. Then Cisco really fucks NP takers over by disabling commonly used commands.
>>
>>52905293
>I mean if you're writing the CCNA most of the commands they want you to run are show commands.

Exactly, now that i think of it, i only needed show commands

>>52905291
Thanks matey!
>>
While i'm here, are there any special things in ICND2 that are hard to learn, notorious in the exam or some things like that?
>>
>>52905467

Frame Relay.

Nobody uses it anymore but it makes up a lot of the test.

Know your management stuff like syslog, and SNMP, they ask a lot of questions on those

Really know STP

Know your way around a OSPF and EIGRP configuration
>>
>>52905510
Are those CLI questions in ICND2 the same as CCENT, practically only show commands? Or do you have to configure EIGRP or OSPF or something like that?
>>
>ccent
lmao enjoy your high school level cert
>>
>>52906086
you have to start somewhere i guess
>>
>>52905135
>>52905135
IIRC you can enable those functions right? I guess is baremetal hardware, cisco demands a minum hw to run a class or grant certs

How do you expect to pass an exam and find a job if you can't google simple books to buy/dl
>>
>>52905467

Really know Frame Relay, lots of questions on that and has configuration options that can be asked about.

Nail down STP, you need to be able to look at a switch topology and quickly determine the root switch and port roles based on info provided. If you study with Odom's book, he mostly skips over RSTP but there are questions about it.

Understand OSPF and EIGRP.

Know show commands for all of the preceding and be able to read its output to answer questions.

Just like with ICND1, if you're struggling with a particular topic the test give you more questions in the same area, so if you get RSTP questions wrong it'll pile those on.

Pretty much any job in IT, but i'd rather find networking job

My long term is to get CCNA, MCSA (win server), LPIC and learn scripting in win and linux

If i find Networking job i'll focus on CCNP, Sec and Wireless

Todd Lammel's book, cbt nuggets, NetAcad lab manual.

quick question for you cats:

I'm building a small test lab for CCNA. I have an old 1721 router right now and am looking at getting another one as well as a pair of 16 port catalyst switches. Will this be enough?

(pic related, my 1721)
>>
>>52909336

In case you're serious, most labs require 4 routers or 4 switches for the CCNA

>Tfw working on my Net+ and getting paid. Feels good
>>
>>52909286
I don't think practicing on real devices gives you that much of an advantage.. of course when you going for a job you wont (shouldn't) lie about experiences just because you took a ccna; but i don't see a reason getting into a *junior* position with someone competent/with experience above you while only practicing on virtual environment
>>
>>52907512
This is also how many tests are working
>>
>>52909336
No hardware is needed for CCNA, and honestly doing physical configurations is needlessly time-consuming. If you're going for CCIE then sure you need to have lots of hands-on with hardware, but CCNA all you need is packet tracer or gns3, and hardware will only slow you down.
>>
Congrats! I did the two part exams for the CCNA last year and am currently working on my CCNP R&S. Keep the wheels turning, if you don't use it, you lose it.
>>
>>52909712

not even worth studying its literally A+ for network monkey work. take those books, learn them, self test yourself, and then move onto CCNA, that way its more worth it.
