In CCNA exam there will be 50 to 60 questions, generally around 55.  Questions will be of different types including multiple-choice questions, drag and drop questions and Simulations (hands on LABS). Its very important that you prepare the technology well and make sure you have good knowledge about practicals, because you can’t afford to miss even a single simulation practical, if you really want to pass. Wrong configuration to any simulation will lead you to fail in the exam as you need 82.5% marks to pass and Simulations weigh heavy in terms of marks in the CCNA exam.


The CCNA Routing and Switching certification proves one's skills to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot networks of medium size that are routed and switched. The certification will also prove the IT professional's skills and expertise concerning Cisco Systems. However, on February 24, 2020, the CCNA r&s certification was replaced by the new CCNA, which includes a little of everything of the tracks that used to be offered individually. This means that the assessment will be on routing and switching, security, data center, collaboration, and other areas. There are now only 3 exams for CCNA, 200-301, 200-201 and 200-901.
