Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Don’t train to take the test. You may pass, but your cert will be hollow and almost worthless.

    Brain dump sites are not the way to go, but don't take my word for it. Take Cisco certification expert David Minutella's in his advice on which brain dump sites will help prepare for the CCNA exam. If you want real advice on how to study for your CCNA, I put together a contest on SearchNetworking.com to see who could offer the best certification advice. The product of that contest can be found in these advice columns fromSearchNetworking.com members who have obtained their CCNA: I hope they help!

    I completely agree about NOT doing braindumbs, you might learn the answers to the questions but you will not learn the concepts that you need to actually perform your job. I have had good luck with different CD programs but nothing beats getting your hands on some old switches and setup your own lab to practice your commands and concepts.

    "You may pass, but your cert will be hollow and almost worthless.", that means, CISCO does not have expertise to measure the candidate's ability. The certificates they provide is almost worthless according to his / her comments. I think the above comments totally baseless and worthless !

    The phrase "You may pass, but your cert will be hollow and almost worthless" is right on - Sure, you can pass the test, but can you DO the job the cert says you can?
