Preparing for CCNA exam - is there anything new to cram for?

I went through the CCNA classes between Oct 2002 and February 2003. I have yet to take the exam but plan on doing with the next week or two. Has the test changed since then? If so, what's new so I can cram for the changes?
Last November was the last update to the CCNA exam, but Cisco is preparing a new set of CCNA exams (aimed at people with little or no networking knowledge, so this probably doesn't apply to you). If you studied for exam 640-607, you're still OK. If not, you'll want to visit one of the good CCNA prep sites like CramSession.com and bone up on differences between the 640-507 and 640-607 exam.

If you're on target with your dates and you did prepare for 640-607 (which you should have, given the November release date for 640-607,) you should be OK.

Troubleshooting IP Routing -- 'CCNA Official Exam Certification Library, 3rd Edition,' Chapter 7 This chapter from 'CCNA Official Exam Certification Library, 3rd Edition' focuses on troubleshooting the IP routing process. To that end, it begins with a section about two important troubleshooting tools: ping and traceroute. Following that, the chapter examines the IP routing process from a troubleshooting perspective, particularly focusing on how to isolate routing problems to identify the root cause of the problem. The final section covers a wide variety of small topics, all of which can be useful when you're troubleshooting IP routing problems. The chapter also includes a helpful "do I know this already" quiz, to determine whether you need to read the full chapter or can move ahead to the exam preparation section.
