How long does it take to prepare for the CCNP by question bank? Cisco CCNP is Cisco Certified Network Professional, which is the intermediate certification in Cisco Certification. Obtaining the CCNP Certificate means that the senior network engineer has the ability to install, configure and troubleshoot the converged LAN and WAN with a range from 100 nodes to more than 500 nodes. They can also manage the routers and switches that form the core of the network, as well as edge applications that integrate voice, wireless, and security into the website.
The CCNP Certification Test includes three test subjects. Take the CCNP Routing and Switching Test as an example, the Data Communication Test Subjects are 300-101 Routing Subject, 300-115 Switching Subject, and 300-135 Troubleshooting Subject, namely ROUTE, SWITCH, and TSHOOT. Each test takes 120 minutes and the cost of each scientific test is USD 300. The total number of these test questions is 91-130. The full scores of the three tests are 1000, with a passing score of 790 points for each subject. You can obtain the CCNP Certificate only after you pass all three examinations. More information here.
However, the certificate is not permanently valid. The validity period of the CCNP Certificate is 3 years, but re-certification can be carried out. For the re-certification, you must pass any of the three subjects in the CCNP Grade Examination or the existing CCIE written examination within the validity period of the CCNP Certificate. Note that the Cisco CCNA Certification must not expire!
Although there are many subjects in CCNP Examination, they are all theoretical examinations without lab examination. There is a question bank service for theoretical examinations. Although memorizing the question bank can improve the pass rate, necessary learning and test preparation time are also needed. Generally speaking, the preparation for CCNP Test by memorizing the question bank for self-study takes about 2-3 months which differs from individual learning progress.
In terms of the learning cycle and planning of SPOTO CCNP, it takes about 18 classes to learn all the contents of CCNP, which is 4 times a week and 2-2.5 hours each time, so that the learning of CCNP can be completed within 35 days. Candidates can also freely choose the class time according to the class arrangement.
Moreover, SPOTO’S Course of CCNP in 2021 has been optimized. In terms of Cloud Laboratory, the hands-on practice part keeps pace with the times and the current network. Candidates can learn anytime and anywhere. There are more small experiments, and the difficulty span of the experiment is more reasonable. Error Elimination Experiments are added at the end of each knowledge module, and more error elimination experiments are being added.
In addition, teachers will provide mind maps to make candidates’ learning easier, more systematic, and efficient. After each class, SPOTO will provide study notes and notes in class, and there will always be exercises after each class to test whether candidates have mastered the knowledge points and deepened their memory. At the same time, candidates can watch the live videos of the classrooms within 24 hours through Tencent Classroom.
Obsessing the question bank will inevitably make it easier to obtain the CCNP Certificate. At present, a large number of people have passed. Compared with the Cisco CCIE Expert Certification, the value of CCNP is much lower.
The most important thing for us to obtain these certifications is to improve ourselves and get a better salary. Generally speaking, fresh graduates with CCIE Certification can get an annual salary of about USD 15000 in first-tier cities and about USD 12400 in second-tier cities. The CCNP Certificate should be at a lower level, whose salary increase is not so great.
Therefore, we still suggest that you should directly obtain CCIE Certification. The salary gap between engineers with CCIE certificates and engineers without certification is 5% – 9%.
In terms of cost performance, it is the most cost-effective to directly obtain CCIE Certification! We SPOTO will provide you with convenient service from CCNA to CCIE, which doesn’t need you to bother at all. Moreover, if you don’t pass at one time, we also provide all the service again until you pass!
