Cisco CCNA R&S Certification Exam

by Jerry M. teacher

The CCNA R&S exam tests the core networking skills of a candidate in terms of IP routing and LAN switching. There are two options for you to get the Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing and Switching certification. You can opt to take a single exam, which is CCNA 200-125 or take two exams, which are ICND1 100-105 and ICND2 200-105. The difference between the two options is that the 200-125 test covers a wider range of topics that are covered in both the 100-105 and 200-105 exams.

Overall, the exam is made of about 50 to 60 multiple-choice questions. The set passing score for the test ranges from 800 to 850 points out of 1000. The exam’s duration is 90 minutes and you are required to answer all the questions by this time.
