About a year later inCisco saw the need to really break out different disciplines for their CCNA track. We also had one switch to share between the whole class of 12 students! They also decreased the number of questions on the exam from 60 to 70 to 55 to 65 questions per exam. Well, at least in theory. You may note how they incremented from the previous, numbering system and jumped up to signifying a revamped exam.

Cisco actually called this the CCNA 2. So if you take your time and really absorb and learn the CCNA objectives, it will be something you will be able to use for a long, long time in your computer networking career. Troubleshooting — To marry up with the CCNP revisions that will be introduced about a year later, Cisco starts to introduce the concept of knowing how to troubleshoot a device and not just set it up.

We will see that evolve later. It is significant to note that there were initially no changes to the exam objectives.

You would receive this certification when you passed your ICND1 exam. This was a single exam and the exam number was I have no idea why so many other articles state the first exam was Static Routing — Still a base concept ccnw must understand to vouce a successful network engineer. ATM — An older fixed 53 byte cell technology using virtual circuits.

The CCIE certification was aimed at those hardcore networking geeks in the early days of corporate networking. We will touch on this more in a bit. If you do not understand this, you will not pass the exam.

Four years later in October we see the update of the exam to vooce revision. It never really took off and it was removed about 2 years later while 4600-461 the exam.

As before, we will first note what was removed from the exam which was formally SDM, Wireless, and Security as mentioned above.


This helped to keep the question pool fresh. OSI Model — The foundation of how data travels up and down the data stack and allows for inter-operability. Vocie Switch The reason we are covering what was on the initial exam to the current day exam is so you can see that the core of the CCNA exam has been relatively unchanged in 15 years!

So what was added? Good times though back then. Switch Security — Again, as security is concern, Cisco starts to hammer this home on the exam. Security — Cisco starts to introduce the concept of Security as hacking is becoming more of a corporate concern.

Got to conserve those IPs! However, this left a glaring hole for those who xcna to break into the new and exciting world of computer networking. Due to the simulation questions, Cisco increased the time allocated for the exam from 75 minutes to 90 minutes. As these certifications were introduced, it seems we seen that there was less focus on seeing these concepts on the CCNA exam as they seemed to be phased out during the exam run.

But what changed was Cisco was trying to eliminate the brain dump sites that were starting to pop up. Then in late we had some significant changes and the exam was introduced.
