Differences between old and new CCNA
« on: May 05, 2010, 10:10:43 PM »
Old CCNA is based on technology specific objectives as below:

1. Planning and Designing
2. Implementation and Operations
3. Troubleshooting
4. Technology

New CCNA is based on skill specific objectives as below:

   1.  Describe how a network works
   2. Configure, verify and troubleshoot a switch with VLANs and interswitch communications
   3. Implement an IP addressing scheme and IP Services to meet network requirements in a medium-size Enterprise branch office network.
   4. Configure, verify, and troubleshoot basic router operation and routing on Cisco devices
   5. Explain and select the appropriate administrative tasks required for a WLAN
   6. Identify security threats to a network and describe general methods to mitigate those threats
   7. Implement, verify, and troubleshoot NAT and ACLs in a medium-size Enterprise branch office network.
   8. Implement and verify WAN links

The main difference is in the syllabus layout. There appears to be not much of a change with respect to the syllabus that one has to learn to prepare for ccna. The exam is getting tougher each time, and more emphasis is being given for practical experience.
