    I'm two years away from finishing college (finance major) and currently working as a full time system admin. When I graduate I'll have about four years of experience as a system admin. I'm trying to complete my MCSE and CCNA certifications before I graduate, that away I can fall back on IT if I don't get into Investment Banking. I was given by the previous admin, CCNA materials for exam 640-507. I know that exam has been retired, but are those materials still good for the CCNA exam? What should I supplement my current materials with?

    Thanks

    How much networking experience do you have...and be honest...???

    The CCNA is a cake walk of an exam.

    640-801 is what you want. It's quite easy to find resources online, if you have to resort to that.

    And CCNA is a breeze, if you know your stuff.

    you talk'n about exams? Either way...

    They are out there, but don't discredit the CCNA and yourself by falling into that trap. Have respect for your craft and learn it!

    I was referring to stuff like the CiscoPress books, which are amazing and should be bought, but that isn't always an option for some people.

    In regard to brain dumps - if people want to use them to get paper, let them. They won't make it through the job interview when they're asked to configure routing between vlans, or to redistribute EIGRP into an OSPF route, etc.
