CCNA v2.0 Review: Critical Concepts of the 640-802 CCNA Exam


According to Eric Vanderburg of, the CCNA is "Cisco's introductory certification and the one in greatest demand. Cisco products often are the first thought when choosing network infrastructure equipment, and they are immensely prevalent, creating a vast need for professionals who are capable of managing them."

On June 25, 2007, Cisco announced major updates to their CCNA curricula, including the new version of the CCNA Composite Exam (640- 802 CCNA). According to Cisco, this new curriculum includes "basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills. This new curriculum also includes (but is not limited to) the use of these protocols: IP, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Serial Line Interface Protocol Frame Relay, Routing Information Protocol Version 2(RIPv2),VLANs, Ethernet, access control lists (ACLs)."

To reflect these changes, we have updated our popluar overview, CCNA Review, to bring you CCNA v2.0 Review. This paper can help students understand what types of information would be required to pass the new version of the composite exam by providing a convenient review of the exam's critical concepts.
