Indianapolis, IN–March 12th Cisco Press announced today the development of the first complete and timely suite of CCNA self-study learning products available for the new Cisco Certified Network Associate Exam, CCNA #640-607. This product suite was created in conjunction with Cisco Systems to provide a comprehensive self-study preparation track for the new version of the CCNA Exam. As the first publisher to provide such resources, the Cisco Press CCNA self-study products are the only materials that are approved and recommended by Cisco Systems.
The new exam is called CCNA #640-607. With this new exam, Cisco has introduced performance-based testing elements that will measure a candidate?s ability to accomplish certain tasks in a time-critical setting. Cisco Systems? goal is not to make the exams more difficult, but rather to present a testing environment that assesses both a candidate?s practical and theoretical mastery of CCNA objectives.
With CCNA #640-607, the multiple-choice question type remains, yet new experience-based, interactive question types have been incorporated that require cut-and-paste solutions, IP addressing input, and networking simulation comprehension. And although the objectives have not changed from those on the #640-507 exam, the multiple-choice question bank from that exam has been fully retired and replaced with a new question set.
Now more than ever, the key to CCNA success is experiencethe kind of experience that one can get only from Cisco Learning Partners, schools within the Cisco Networking Academy Program, and the official publisher for Cisco Systems, Cisco Press.
Cisco Press meets the demand for new self-study exam preparation materials with a comprehensive variety of CCNA products. New features of the updated Cisco Press products include revisions to established best-selling products with new sections that assist novice networkers in understanding concepts, lab scenarios for mastering CCNA concepts on actual hardware or simulators, and the ability to prepare for the CCNA Exam through multiple formats.
?Cisco Press CCNA products have always focused on teaching networking concepts, not on test-taking shortcuts? says John Kane, Cisco Press editor-in-chief. ?With the announcement of the #640-607 exam, Cisco Press presents a comprehensive variety of learning products to the self-study market that have been planned and developed over the past year. From the official Coursebooks to flash card test engines
that can even be used on handhelds, Cisco Press?s goal is to meet any networker?s unique learning needs and study practices.?
As Cisco Systems continues to test candidates for their comprehension of networking technology, Cisco Press continues to provide the resources and the self-study tools to master the technology. Cisco Press has developed the following four brand-new products for the #640-607 exam.
