Cisco revises the ICND2 exam and training course updating it from version 2.0 to version 3.0 round the corner; to be precise, on September 24, 2016. A new exam available from Pearson VUE with the exam number 200-105 is a 90-minute, 45–55 query assessment that is associated with the CCNA Routing and Switching certification. This exam is intended for candidates with deep knowledge and professional level related to LAN switching technologies, IPv4 and IPv6 routing technologies, WAN technologies, infrastructure maintenance, and infrastructure services.
So what is the difference between these two versions of cisco certification exams?
First of all, it’s a period of time and number of queries. While 200-101 ICND2 exam lasts for only 75 minutes and includes 50 or even 60 queries, 200-105 ICND2 exam allows candidates to choose correct keys during 90 minutes, with the test consisting of no more than 55 queries. Another advantage of an updated cisco certification is the possibility not only for English speakers but also for Japanese IT professionals to pass the exam.
And finally, let’s look at the topics for a new version of the exam named Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (200-105 ICND2). Here they are:
- LAN Switching Technologies
- Routing Technologies
- WAN Technologies
- Infrastructure Services
- Infrastructure Maintenance
These topics are basic guidelines for the content which is suggested to occur on the exam. However, other similar topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam.
Here you can find the overview and study materials to prepare for a new exam.
