Hi Guys,

I just passed 640-802! :D

For me i found that I had studied wider breath of knowledge than was needed for this exam. The WAN and routing protocol questions were fairly basic. However I still found it tough time wise. I had a few easy sims and one killer sim that took me 20+ Mins!

1) Beyond the Cisco Press material my advice is look through the nuggets, i even found some of the more basic CCIE nuggets really useful for the CCNA. I know it sounds silly but those nugget focus more on the practical side, also Jeremy Ciora is legend (and an Uber geek!)

2) Use the Exam Cram book as well, the practice tests and practice sims are extremely useful.

3) Focus on fairly basic router and switch commands, using the CLI to discover your network but making sure you can do them FAST!!

Anyways, i'm off to curl up in a corner....maybe gone a while
