    Thanks guys.

    LOL jvrlopez you are cutting it even closer than I did! :)

    Hehehe, I was even thinking of taking it around 3 PM CST at first so I could sleep in...then I reconsidered because of the traffic that would be between the testing center and my apartment when I finished. Pretty sure someone in Hawaii will be the last CCNA to test out of 640-802.

    Sorry to hijack a thread guys, but I just learned about this Cisco certification stuff. Why is there a September 30th 2013 deadline for the test? What does this mean for future people?

    CCNA 640-802 has been around for the past few years and will be retired and replaced with a revised and updated version that covers new technologies and expands on some other areas.

    You won't be able to take the 640-802 after 30 Sept 13 but the new version, CCNA 200-120, is now available for you to test on.

    Nothing to sweat, Cisco is just updating their materials and exams.

    Hypethiz, the current exam is being retired at the end of this month and is being replaced with a new exam based on an "updated" curriculum. It doesn't really affect future test takers; if you take the test in the future it will simply have some topics that differ from the pre Sep. 30th exam. CCNA is, and will still be, CCNA. It only makes a difference to those that have already been studying for the exam because if they don't pass the exam before the end of the month then they will have to study the new material which will prolong their studies.

    It updates some things that have been happening in the past few years, which in IT time is light years.

    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.
  • WilyOneWilyOne Member Posts: 131
    Thanks all! Yes it feels good. When I was done I could finally relax. :)

    Yeah that's why I wanted to get 640-802 in before it expired. All my materials and studying is on the "old" curriculum, and I didn't want to start over with new books. That said, I do have the transition material that Cisco provides for the new curriculum. It covers these areas:
    EtherChannel
    HSRP
    IOS 15
    IPv6
    Multi-Area OSPF
    Network Management

    Of those, HSRP and multi-area OSPF I'm most interested in.

    I was able to schedule about 10 days ago at any time I wanted. And then I rescheduled two days ago for any time I wanted. My testing center is always empty, lol.

    Nope, that was the standard free mailing. Mailed 10/7; received 10/11.

    Maybe it helps I live near Cisco HQ? :D
