Knew you'd blaze it. Feels weird to walk in, punch the test out like a boss, then see over half the time remaining on your clock when you've finished. It's almost anticlimactic if you build the test up too much.
Congratulations; you'll have that CCNP in no time with the way you're going ;)

They went to the park and out to lunch. The place wasn't kid friendly, and there were several training groups going on.

Congrats Scott. I was confident in you the whole time. Seeing some of your posts around the forum and having taken the CCENT myself, I knew it would be a breeze for you. I just hope you don't come up from behind and beat me to CCNP before I do :)

Congrats again!

Great job scottsee. What's the pass mark? I'm sure you were confident of passing, must be a weight off!

I don't know why but I thought Scott took the CCNA.

Obviously I was too excited for him and just started blurting out certificates. If it's all the same though Scott I'm looking forward to you passing the ICND2 exam and getting your CCNA.

If the ICND1 exam topics include configuring then I'd go with yes.

The requirements are the same. It's the question that's different.

PROTIP: If a simulation asks you to put a password on a router, make sure that you write the password down nearby, and spell it correctly!

What do you mean by "practical assessment"? As far as I'm aware the only Cisco certs that require access to real hardware are the CCIE practical exams. However, all the 'written' (theory) Cisco cert exams usually include some type of simulation questions. This tutorial demos all the question types. http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/l ... orial.html

apologies il be more specific.
at the moment i am doing the netacadamy course at my local college. its split up into the 4 chapters and at the end to pass each chapter i have to do a theory test and a practical assessment, ie for the last one which was routing i had to set up a 3 router/ switch setup with 3 hosts and enable ospf.
the theory test is a 50 question test which includes all the simulations , multiple choices, but so far these tests themselves havent included any actual configurating. they are more of a case of " which is the correct command" , " why dont the commands in the figure work" etc. which is what is in the tutorial.

i think my question has been answered though, thanks

It's actually 4 courses in either CCNA Exploration or CCNA Discovery, and each course has a number of chapters. And yes, the Final Theory Exam for each course is a 50 question multiple choice exam. Your instructor has the option of also setting you an online pratice skills-based exam using Packet Tracer, but as you said, this should not replace the practical Skills-Based Assessment using real equipment.
In your last CCNA course your instructor can also enable Practice CCENT and CCNA Certification Exams for you - these do contain drag-and-drop, and simulation questions similar to the examples in the tutorial I linked to in my last post.
