HI, I did the exam, but I did not have any luck, I was nerves and I found it difficult, I was wondering if you could tell me about a complete hands-on labs for ccna.

    Sorry to hear that Amir...

    What book did you use? Doesn't it contain full labs/ written labs?

    Any specific topics you found most difficult?

    You might want to buy a router sim, so you can practice pretty much every command you need to know for the exam.

    Maybe we'll be able to create some labs here at TechExams.Net... I'll get back on that....

    Hi, there, thank you for your email, I am a bit sad because I really did not think that I was going to fail, but I believe my weak side is Practice and bit of subnetting ( for example when you have a question where it says that in group b or c they want 700 network and 500 host) I do not know how to calculate that.

    another one was, what do you use for the bandwidth in IGRP:

    METRIC 56000
    BANDWIDTH 56000

    The course that I have is CCNA VIRTUAL TRAINING CERTIFICATION KIT, which I think is a bit light on the practice side, I have seen the ROUTERSIM, but I do not know which one is best, because apart from learning the configuration in detail, I think I need tests for configurations too.

    I was also thinking about an office practical virtual lab or hands on ( which you might know) from Cisco.

    I will wait a few days to find it and then I will start preparing my self again.

    One last thing, do you know the average that a person takes to pass the exam, I have hear from once to a few times and some times maybe more.

    Thank you.

    Subnetting is an essential part of CCNA, CCDA, CCNP and CC... well pretty much for all Cisco certs you need to know subnetting as if it was a simple as counting from 1 to 10. I suggest you go to and practice a lot. Just make up an IP address with the numbers of subnets and hosts and start calculating.

    We should have our CCNA Routing Protocols TechNote online within 2 weeks or so.

    If you want to buy a router simulator, try or

    Cisco does not provide free practice labs as far as I know, but you can find anything you need on including configuration examples.

    I don't know the exact numbers, but I think at least 50% need to take the exam at least twice to pass...
  • amiramir Member Posts: 10 ■□□□□□□□□□ does not exist, also, I can not decide which router is best in in and I am looking for cisco official lab (which you might know) as far as is complate and covers ccna objectives, I do not mind buying it.

    Thank you
