Exam Requirements

I read on the forums posts from 2013, and am just trying to clarify the requirements on the CCNA Security 640-554. I have visited the Cisco site as well. The prerequisite for this exam is just being CCENT for instance, passing 100-101 ICND1?

I believe the cisco site answers my question on the following page, but I would just like clarification.

CCNA Security Certification - IT Certifications and Career Paths - Cisco Systems

I appreciate your time.

    You will need a valid CCENT *OR* a CCNA R/S *OR* a CCIE as the pre-reqs. The CCENT can be fulfilled by passing 100-101 ICND1.

    Thanks! I was wondering because I recently passed my security+ (a few weeks ago) and was reviewing material for the CCNA Security, I figured strike while the iron is hot in regards to security. I had a voucher expiring so I took my ICND1 and passed the exam today.

    I appreciate the information.

    Back in my day we used to route packets on 56k lines, through the snow, uphill both ways.

    Indeed. I noticed that the first couple of chapters in the CCNA Security book was mainly an abridged Security+. So I intend to hit CCNA RS and then Security+ before I go for CCNA Security.

    Any hardcover books that are being pushed as good study materials for CCNA Security? I have access to hardware to work on, just know that it is a newer test so not as many relevant books for it.

    The Chris Bryant series I think is still $22 if you google the promo code for his Udemy course, and I think he is a great teacher.

    +1 for Chris Bryant. He's very, very knowledgeable on the topics and a great teacher, too.

    Does Chris Bryant teach anything but boot camps? When I was using his CCNA 200-120 video boot camps, they seem quite abridged. If I didn't have any prior training with routing and switching, I'm quite sure I would have been lost. I would probably use his CCNA Security videos for review after I do my own studying.
