Cisco CCNA exam: Are you ready? Take this 10-question quiz to find out

This 10-question quiz will help you prepare for the Cisco CCNA exam.

Achieving your Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) certification requires more than just studying. It requires a true in-depth understanding of network fundamentals and network-security technologies covered in the CCNA curriculum. Our updated CCNA quiz has been completely redesigned to reflect the new CCNA Routing and Switching (200-120) requirements and to help you test your knowledge and understanding of a variety of CCNA topics.

With the new 200-120 CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum, Cisco has made some much-needed changes to steer the exam away from topics covered in other CCNA certifications (e.g, wireless, security) and focus more on the routing and switching technologies. 

A few of the major changes include a noticeable reduction of emphasis on IP subnetting coverage -- a very important section in previous CCNA Routing and Switching exams -- and a significant increase of emphasis on IPv6 topics. There is also complete absence of any wireless topics, which are now covered in the CCNA wireless exam.

The new CCNA Routing and Switching exam now focuses more on routing (mainly EIGRP and OSPF) and switching technologies (VLANs, STP), while high-availability technologies such as VRRP, HSRP and GLBP have made an appearance, as they are now frequently used in today's networks and also occupy an important portion of the next certification level, CCNP Routing and Switching.

The quiz questions increase in complexity, so we recommend answering them in the order presented here.
