The 640-816 Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (ICND2) is the exam associated with the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification.

The 640-816 Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (ICND2) is the exam associated with the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician certification. To achieve your CCNA you have two options. You can take ICND1 640-822 and ICND2 640-816, or just the CCNA 640-802 exam. Most of the people in the industry choose the one test option. If you would rather study less material at a time or are new to the field I would recommend the two-test option.

The knowledge required to pass the CCNA certification exam is among the most valuable skills required in the networking field. The topics covered by the CCNA certification exam are the building blocks of all networking topologies and protocols.

The CCENT certification provides validation of your skills, but is more reflective of a junior or entry-level network technician.

Cisco’s market share for routers is around 60 percent. Juniper is second with around 30 percent in case you’re interested.

Cisco lists the following exam topics:

  • Configure, verify and troubleshoot a switch with VLANs and interswitch communications
  • Implement an IP addressing scheme and IP services to meet network requirements for a small branch office
  • Configure and troubleshoot basic operation and routing on Cisco devices
  • Implement, verify, and troubleshoot NAT and ACLs in a medium-size Enterprise branch office network.
  • Implement and verify WAN links

I would strongly recommend you take both the 640-822 and 640-816 certification exam if you are just starting out,  or are intimidated with taking the 640-802 exam. It is less intense and much easier because the information is more specific to the exam.
