JNCIA JNO-201 is the first entry cert in Juniper world, correct?

Where can I find the link of that free pdf textbook for the materials?

I can't find the link on Juniper's website.

Thanks.

    Free materials for Juniper's current JNCIA-JUNOS associate-level exam (JNO-101) and a couple specialist-level exams can be found on the following page. You'll need to register first for full access--

    Fast Track Program - Routing and Switching Certification - Juniper Networks

    Learning Portal -> Training? JNCIA-Junos Study Guide—Part 1 and 2?

    Are these two PDFs sufficient enough to pass the exam?

    Thanks.

    To have a good shot at passing, you should do all four steps that they recommend. If you only do step two, and you don't have much networking experience, I can almost assure you that you will fail the exam.
    Associate (JNCIA-Junos) Certification Steps:
    1. Take the Networking Fundamentals eLearning course
    2. Review Study Resources
    3. Take the pre-assessment exam
    4. Take the live exam at a Pearson VUE testing center
    To clarify, step 1 covers basic networking, while step 2 covers basic JunOS.

    Is "Networking Fundamentals - WBT" the only video I need to review? on top of PDFs and step 3 and 4.

    In training portal, there are many more videos like "switches," "Junos as second language," etc.

    I suspect you are on a different webpage? If you are log in.. and click on the link I presented.. you should see precisely the four steps I quoted above. Those should be all you see, and they're all you need.

    Well, besides some hands-on practice of course. :)

    I do recommend CBT Nuggets for a quick review. At only $24/day it's a bargain!

    For hands-on practice, did you find a simulator or buy the actual equipment? For either answer, could you list what you have bought?

    Thank you very much!!

    I used Junosphere. The hardware is simulated. The OS is precisely the full-blown real JunOS and supported by JTAC. I reserved a two-router topology for two days ($20) and mirrored what they were doing on CBT Nuggets ($24).

    A few hours of practice was sufficient and extremely helpful.

    Could you describe which option you chose when buying and which commands you ran?

    Thanks.

    For CBT Nuggets and Junosphere, I chose their cheapest purchase options. As far as what commands I ran, as I said, I mirrored what they were showing in the CBT Nuggets videos. I also did minimal RIP and OSPF configurations.
  • sendalotsendalot Member Posts: 328
    Did you simply rent 2 Juniper routers and copied CBT commands?

    2 routers are enough for all?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I activated two Junosphere routers for two days. You purchase credits for $5 each, and that cost me four credits.

    I mostly typed the commands I saw in CBT nuggets, sometimes with minor variation or a ? to see other options. I explored where the folks in the video said, "This would be a good area to explore on your own." I also setup minimal RIP and OSPF configurations to explore import/export policies, one area that seemed somewhat different in a counter-intuitive way from what I was familiar with working with other vendors. I suspect this gave me a better feel for JunOS and helped improve my retention.

    Did you use any manual for this?

    No. This is only an associate-level exam.

    I just posted a blog article on the JNCIA-Junos. You should find some useful information in there.

    I just passed mine a month ago, and I have to say that I probably got more out of the "JunOS for dummies" book than anything else I found. The "Day One" series put out by Juniper was a good supplement to that. My company has quite a bit of Juniper gear in our core, so I was able to poke around a little bit to get familiar with the CLI without Junosphere.

    Are we supposed to know how to setup RIP2 and OSPF?

    Thanks.
