Exam Number: 640-822 ICND1

Associated Certifications: CCENT and CCNA
Duration: 90 Minutes (50-60 questions)

The 640-822 Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1) 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:

  • Describe the operation of data networks.
  • Implement an IP addressing scheme and IP services to meet network requirements for a small branch office
  • Implement a small routed network
  • Explain and select the appropriate administrative tasks required for a WLAN
  • Identify security threats to a network and describe general methods to mitigate those threats
  • Implement and verify WAN links

I
would strongly recommend you take the 640-822 exam if you are just startng out or are intimidated with taking the 640-802 exam. It is less intense and much easier.
