According to the introduction of IT Certification Examination Resource Network, Cisco CCNA is the primary technical certificate in Cisco Certification System. With the continuous progress of society, CCNA Certification Exam is also constantly upgrading, so what is its upgrading road? Learn with me. I will take you to know the upgrading road of CCNA Certification Examination.
Since the establishment of Cisco CCNA Certification Examination, this examination project has experienced many times of upgrading. 640-407, which was first established in 1998, was changed to 640-507 (it came into effect in August, 2000), then was changed to 640-607 in April, 2002, and then was changed to 640-801 in September, 2003. The specific upgrade path is shown in the figure.
Compared with the original 640-407, which ended on July 31, 2000, this version of 640-507 is just a small addition. So the change of this upgrade does not lie in the content, but in the focus of the test site, which has made a big breakthrough. As you can see, the problem of OSI Structure, which was regarded as the top priority in 640-407, has been greatly reduced. However, the focus has been shifted to three parts: Ethernet Switching Principle, Network Segmentation and VLAN. On the other hand, the content of OSI is also greatly reduced. At the same time, the proportion of topics related to Wan Concept also increased to a certain extent. This shows one thing, that is, the focus of CCNA exam has shifted from the understanding of OSI Model to the Switching /Segmentation of LAN.
Now let’s talk about the difference between 640-607 and 640-507 (which ended on April 23rd, 2002). In fact, the main difference between them is that some relatively new questions, namely experimental questions, have been added to the new examination. This kind of question will ask the examinee a question request, and then input the corresponding command on the simulated router control interface, so as to complete the task.
However, today’s CCNA Certification Examination has introduced two different ways to everyone. Generally, many people will choose to use 640-801 and the original 640-607 (which ended on September 30th, 2003). Compared with Novell, the content of IPX / SPX related to Novell is no longer needed, which includes Valid Address and Invalid Address, Judging the Correct or Wrong Configuration of the Sub-net, the correct division of the Sub-net, Hexadecimal and Binary Conversion, as well as the Routing Protocol Debugging and so on. In this part of the experiment, the original two topics have been increased to three topics. The scope of the experiment configuration is constantly expanding, and it will not be like the previous 640-607, which only configures the IP Address and Routing Protocol. For example, the Configuration Access Control list has been added.
Here, I’d like to show you the CCNA Certification Examination List. The specific list is shown in the figure.
Through this CCNA Certification Course, we will learn about the upgrading road of CCNA Certification exam. If you still don’t understand, you can read the tutorial several times. After all, Cisco Certification is still a popular test. SPOTO updates different tutorials every day. Let’s study together.
