CCNP exam content
The CCNP certification exam – 350 601 DCCOR Training contains 3 exam subjects. Take the CCNP routing exchange exam for example, the data communication directions are: 300-101 routing subjects, 300-115 exchange subjects, 300-135 troubleshooting subjects, namely ROUTE, SWITCH, TSHOOT, each exam time is 120 minutes, each exam cost is 300 US dollars, a total of 91-130 questions, the full score of the three exams is 1000 points, and the PASS score is 790 points for each subject. The CCNP certificate can only be obtained after all three exams are passed. However, the certificate is not permanently valid. The CCNP certificate is valid for 3 years, but re-certification can be carried out. Re-certification must pass any of the three subjects of the CCNP level examination within the validity period of the CCNP certificate, or pass the existing CCIE written exam. And pay attention to the CCNA certificate must not expire!

CCNP exam preparation study time: there are many subjects in the CCNP exam, but they are all theoretical exams and there is no LAB exam. There is a question bank service for theoretical exams. Although it is said that brushing the question bank can improve the pass rate, the necessary study and preparation time are also required. Generally speaking, the preparation of the CCNP test varies according to the individual learning progress. The self-study CCNP question bank preparation takes about 2- 3 months.

From the perspective of the learning cycle and planning of CCNP in SPOTO, it takes about 18 lessons to complete all the content of CCNP, 4 times a week, 2 to 2.5 hours each time, so that you can complete the CCNP study within 35 days. Candidates can also freely choose the class time according to the arrangement of the class.
In addition, the 2020 version of the CCNP course has been optimized. In terms of cloud laboratory, the hands-on practice part keeps pace with the times and is synchronized with the current network. Candidates can study anytime and anywhere. There are more small experiments and a more reasonable range of experiment difficulty. After each knowledge module is completed, troubleshooting experiments are added. More troubleshooting experiments are being added; in addition, the teacher will provide thinking guidance maps make learning simpler and more systematic, and improve learning efficiency; after each lecture, SPOTO will provide study notes and in-class notes, and there must be exercises after class to test whether candidates have learned or not, to consolidate and deepen memory; At the same time, candidates can watch the live video of the classroom within 24 hours through Tencent Classroom.

Why is it recommended that you take the CCIE directly? Because having a question bank, it will inevitably lead to easier access to the CCNP certificate. At present, there are many people who have passed the CCNP. Compared with the CCIE expert-level certification, the gold content of the CCNP is much worse.
For we to obtain certification, of course, the most important thing is to improve ourselves and bring better salary. Generally speaking, a fresh graduate with a CCIE certificate can get an annual salary of about 14930 US Dollars in first-tier cities, and almost 11940 US Dollars in second-tier cities. The CCNP certificate should be a lower grade correspondingly, and the salary increase is not so great.
Therefore, we still suggest that you should directly take the CCIE certification. The salary gap between engineers with CCIE certification and engineers without certification is 5%-9%.
In terms of cost performance, it is the most cost-effective to take the CCIE directly! We SPOTO provide you with a through train service from CCNA to CCIE, no need for you to bother, and if it fails once, we also provide free repair service until it is passed!
