Ccna Testing Centers: What to Expect (info Includes All Exams)

By: Georgia Stath

Getting yourself to your choice of CCNA testing centers is the second step after visiting prometric.com or vue.com and registering for the exam. This information isn't exclusive only to the ccna exam but to all. The procedure is the same...

You will be asked to show 2 forms of valid ID, one of which has to be a photo id. When you register for your exam you will read exactly what is accepted. Passport and driving licence is always accepted


You will be asked to sign the log book when you arrive and when you leave


You have to sign the agreement that you will follow the rules


You may be given a sheet of scrap paper and pen/pencil if it's needed for your exam.


They will ask you to leave any personal items with them. You can't for instance take your bag, phone etc into the exam room.


You will be shown into the exam room where your test would have been preloaded ready for you to start.


Some ccna testing centers will inform you that the exam room may be audio or video taped. Most of the ones I attended didn't, but 2 of them did. So don't naively try to talk to someone else taking the exam.


After the initial screens where you may be asked for some information about yourself or to read some other stuff, you click when you are ready to start your exam


Relax. Understand you have plenty of time if you don't panic. Concentrate only on doing the best job possible. In the time you are allocated for the test, nothing else matters. Just the test. You will have questions that are easy. You will have questions that throw you. And you will have questions you absolutely for the life of you have no idea how to answer. Relax. There is a pass and fail mark.


If something goes wrong in the exam (the computer dies on you) inform the ccna testing center immediately. Don't try to fix things. You are there to pass the exam, not to prove your skills!!


When you finish your exam, the screen will let you know whether you passed or failed. Take any scrap paper you had taken with your into the exam and hand them over to the exam coordinator. They will give you a printout of your results. MAKE SURE YOU GET THIS. Besides the score, the printout shows you areas you were strong in and weak in. In case you didn't pass, this is valuable information of what you concentrate your studies on to take the test again.


If you didn't pass the test, most governing bodies will not allow you to retake the test unless a number of days have passed. You will need some time to brush up on your weaknesses. Check each vendors website to see when you can sit for the exam again.
