    You get more points for SIMs. You get partial credit on SIMs. Those are the only two things Cisco has admitted about exam grading. Anything else you've heard is just someone's best guess (or joke to mess with you).

    Sounds like wishful thinking out of the desire to have more control over the outcome of the sim - somehow reminds me of an old friend pressing buttons on a slot machines in a certain order he was convinced would lead to better results.

    There's no trick for passing the sims or getting the max score. The help features in the Cisco exam sims have actually been expanded/improved since they added sims to the exams. It would make no sense to punish exam candidates for using them.

    You may get partial credit on a sim if you haven't completed the configuration, but deducting points for additional actions that don't even show up in the eventual configuration is highly unlikely.

    if you have ccna with 1 year remaining in the expiration date and you recertify it does the 3 years will add up in the expiration date?

    It resets the clock to 3 years, Not more than 3.

    For example, I took and passed my CCNA tomorrow. I'd be certified for 2015, not 2018

    It may already be planned but, with the upcoming changes to the CCNA could we get a refresh on this sticky? I have no clue where to start and would like to pursue my CCNA after the changes.

    From everything I've ever heard, using ? is allowed on the sims. I've never taken a cisco exam myself, but I know plenty of people who have, and were able to use ? and passed with good scores.

    Hi guys,

    I might have one of the most basic questions ever, but I couldn't find any answer neither in the Cisco web nor here. I am studying for the CCENT, and I would like to see what the available dates are for taking such exam. Where can I see it? I tried to schedule an exam at the Cisco web but I'm not sure if i press the Schedule button it will schedule the exam for a specific date without letting me cancel it.


    Thanks for the help.

    Are you trying to schedule it through Pearson Vue - https://www6.pearsonvue.com/testtake...e=CISCOTESTING ?? If so, you can go through the steps by selecting your testing center, date, and time you want to test. Your exam will not be scheduled until you pay for it.

    This FAQ is in serious need of an update. Many of the linked articles are five to ten years old. I understand that things move slowly in the networking field but this is ridiculous. Hasn't there been two revisions to the ICND exams in this time? There's also been a few changes to the IOS commands as well. A big change is in the pricing and availability of used Cisco gear and software simulators/emulators. If people followed the advice in the FAQ on purchasing gear they'd be wasting a lot of money.

    Looks we all need to pitch in and update this for the newer exams, though I imagine most key concepts are the same or similar. Anyone got any good links or updates? I got the Laz Diaz CCNA course on Udemy for a bargain, seems pretty good so far but I don't know how it compares to other material, can any Cisco pro's out there advise? Got the Odom book as well which seems thorough.
