Dave's Study Tips for CCNA Exam 640-801

Cisco has done a major upgrade to the CCNA certification, calling it the CCNA 3.0 certification. There are two exam tracks to reach this certification. The single-exam track requires you to take the 640-801 CCNA exam. If you are somewhat new to Cisco networking, you can also achieve your CCNA by taking TWO exams - 641-821 ((INTRO exam) AND 640-811 (Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices).
If you have been studying for the CCNA already, you do have until September 30th, 2003, to register for the 640-607. After that, you will need to take the 640-801 exam (or the two-exam track), which, from a subject matter perspective, will be more difficult. If you do pass the 640-607 before it is retired, your CCNA certification will still be good for three years. So, if you have been putting off taking the 607 exam, you'd better get on the stick!
I haven't taken the 640-801 exam yet. But, I am beginning personally to prepare for it, and hope to pass it before the summer of 2004. But here are some of the new topics that may appear on the exam:
Cisco has published some fairly vague exam info on their web site.
Todd Lammle has put together a great simulator and study guide called Virtual Lab Platinum Edition for the 640-801 exam.
If you have ever been enrolled in a Cisco networking academy, you are considered an alumni, provided you have taken an assessment exam at one point. If so, you still have access to Cisco curriculum at http://cisco.netacad.net. You can access the CCNA 3.0 curriculum there to help bring yourself up to date.
Once I do more studying for the 640-801 exam, I'll post more study tips here!
