What’s New in the Cisco ICND1 and ICND2 v2.0 Exams?

What’s New in the Cisco ICND1 and ICND2 v2.0 Exams?

Article Information

Article Description

In March 2013, Cisco released new versions of the ICND1 and ICND2 exams for their CCENT and CCNA certifications. These new versions, labeled ICND1 v2.0 and ICND2 v2.0 include several additions and deletions from the prior 1.1 versions. So, what has really changed, and why were the changes made? Eric Rivard runs down the changes in this article.

Why the Change?

First, let’s discuss why changes were made to ICND 1 and ICND 2 v1.1. ICND1 and 2 v1.1 were released in 2007. During this short time, technology has changed drastically, which in turn has shaped the face of IT in the workplace. For example, the proliferation of smartphones and consumer devices in the workplace has caused IT to shift the way it does business and secures devices. Several years ago it was common for IT departments to provide end users with company issued cellphones and computing devices. However, we have seen a large move towards Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), cloud technology, and a larger shift towards telecommuting. These changes have not only increased the number of devices requiring IP addresses, but changed the way IT departments secure devices and placed a greater demand on networks, both wired and wireless. Never before has the network become so critical to the way we live and do business.

How To Prepare for Salesforce.com Certifications

I’m helping a new group of Salesforce.com Admins prepare for their upcoming ADM201 Certifications (which they’ll be taking at Dreamforce 2011). While preparing to help THEM prepare, I created this quick list of 14 tips, tricks and advice — I hope you find it useful!

1.) Exam Format: This is a timed, multiple choice exam. There are 60 questions you must answer within a 90-minute window. Some questions have one answer, some have multiple correct answers (and you must select all of them correctly). The advantage of a multiple choice format is that all of the information is in front of you. The disadvantage is that additional information is also given to you, designed to confuse you. Some people excel at this format and never have to study. I’m not one of those people. I need to study hard, write down the information, and review / recall it often.

2.) Exam Environment: Salesforce certification exams are taken on a computer and monitored by a proxy. The exam software will present you with one question at a time. You must answer it or skip it, and then move on to the next question. At the end, the software gives you a chance to review each question and verify or change your answer. The exam is pass/fail: you need to score a 67% or higher to pass (hey, for most exams we took in college, that’s an F, so how hard can it be, right?). Exam results are calculated immediately: you will know if you passed or failed before leaving the exam area.
