Retest - 640-802

I failed the CCNA a few weeks ago, and have booked to take take the retest on Monday.

Does anyone have any last tips to what I should practice? I've been through Todd Lammle's book, completed all the labs (2-3 times). I have also gone through CBT Nuggets and Train Signal's videos.

 

I'm all out of ideas to what i could read, lab and practice. I have an small lab with 2x 2621XM, 2x catalyst 3160 switches, and 3 800-series routers.

I also use GNS3 and PT.

 

The topics i got low scores on was NAT and ACL.

 

I feel i'm in controle of subnetting enough, but practice it daily.

 

 

Last and not least, thanks for a superb learning network, this have helped me out a lot when I have been stuck on something

    Hi there,


    I would do some NAT and ACL practice if thats what you scored low on last time. Take this weekend to skim read those chapters in the book, and rewatch any nuggets or vids you have.

     

    Barry Burdette has a NAT lab on his site, maybe worth going through this. http://freeciscolab.com/routing-labs-2/

     

    One thing I would say is, be confident, and get a goods night sleep beforehand, its obvious but its so tempting to cram loads on the last night. I made sure I did nothing network / computer related the night before. I went for a walk and mulled over some of the concepts and topics. It helped me anyway.

    Hi larsoyvind,

     

    There are some review questions available for the CCNA exam in the Practice page that you can check out before your next exam attempt.

     

    Also, you may want to try the learning games in the Games Arcade page to help supplement your learning experience and exam preparation.

     

    Best of luck to you!

    Here is my recommendation:

    • Build your CCNA lab for ACL and NAT using GNS3, PT or real Cisco devices.
    • Read Cisco Press ICND2 book's sections about ACL and NAT doing all labs at least 3 times.
    • Summarize what you read and practice.

     

    Good luck!

    Hi larsoyvind,

     

    Great to hear that you enjoyed the learning games.

     

    Also, please be advised that the use of braindump material such as Testking is not allowed and can be considered as cheating since it takes questions and answers from the actual exams. Cisco does not condone the use of any form of braindump.

     

    The Cisco Learning Network and its community members highly discourage the use of braindump sites or materials as sources for studying.

     

    The use of such materials may also put a candidate's Cisco Certifications at risk.

     

    Regards,
