The first step to take to pass the exam is to prepare adequately for it. There are two basic preparation methods, preparatory and in-services. In case of preparatory methods, you have to purchase the CCNA or any other Cisco exams books from your local bookstore or from the Cisco website. In case of in-services method, you should download the CCSP or any other Cisco exams book from the Cisco website and use it to study for the exam.
You can also download two free books from the Google Web fonts site – CCNA Tools and Exam Confidence Builder. The former contains a number of practice tests and answer guides, whereas the latter has a number of written applications that you can work on to prepare for the exam. These two books will help you learn all the important vocabulary, networking terms and algorithms, routing protocols, troubleshooting tips and information.
Once you are done with studying the books, you should set up a Google Doc file called Exam Confidence Builder. You can open the file and write any exam related questions and answers that you want to appear in the examination. Copy paste all these questions and answers into this document. Then you should save this file as a PDF file. Now, you need to import all this data into your Google Spreadsheet so that you can use this data when you do your preparation for the exam.
The third step that you should follow is to download the test PDF from the Google website. Open this test PDF and save it as a PDF. Now you should open a new tab and then import all the questions and answers from the Test Confidence Builder into the corresponding cell. Once you are done with this, you can easily modify the contents of the cells as per your requirements.
The fourth step that you should follow is to create a spread sheet from the Test Confidence Builder spreadsheet. On the first line you should enter all the names of the subjects that you have read previously so that you get a complete list. In this cell, you should also enter all the topics covered in the examination. You can use Microsoft Office to create a blank spreadsheet or use any other word processing application.
The fifth step that you should follow is to create a summary of the entire examination. You should write down your summary in the format of a checklist. You should add a couple of columns for each subject. You should also indicate whether you got a passing score for each subject.
The sixth step that you should follow is to search YouTube for a couple of videos that cover the Cisco exams. You should select two or three videos and copy the link. You should then download these videos and place these on the web pages of the review sites that are mentioned in the first few sentences of the article. The content should be composed with proper keywords. You can also insert your name at the bottom of the page to make it more personal.
