So, you finally decided to obtain your first Cisco certification. Like many candidates, you had your eye on getting a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). You explored your options and decided you wanted to test the waters by plunking down the money for the Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1) exam and obtaining your Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) credential. Then you can use that credential as a stepping stone to your CCNA by taking ICND2 later, presumably after you spent some time studying for it.

Test takers who sat the original proctored paper-and-pencil version of the (ISC)2 Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) exam might identify with the following nagging thoughts chewing at the minds of candidates as they attempted to center themselves for the long haul in what was most likely an unfamiliar environment:
Various application layer protocols listen on specific ports. For example, when you want to visit a website, the HTTP request that exits your computer is destined for TCP port 80 on the remote server. The source port on your computer is an arbitrary ephemeral port. The request is processed on the server, and data returns to your computer destined to the previous source port where your web browser (probably Chrome) is ready and waiting.
With CiscoLive 2017 quickly approaching, I'm looking ahead and reviewing my notes from last year. One question we frequently receive throughout the conference is, "What makes NetSim different than ____?" or, "I have real equipment, so why would I use NetSim?" We enjoy answering this question because people normally walk away with a better understanding of our product and plan to use it for themselves or for their students. My goal is not to knock the other options, because there are a lot of great resources out there. Instead I aim to be as informative as possible to help you make a smart buying choice.
Just like the Robert Frost poem, two paths diverge in the thicket that is your study for the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching certification. Along one of those paths, you first earn the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) by taking the Interconnecting Cisco Networks Devices 1 (ICND1) exam, or exam number 100-105. After more study, you can then opt to take the ICND2 (200-105) exam to earn the CCNA certificate.
