Network Associate Study Resources

The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification is an entry level (dubbed ‘Associate’) career certification from Cisco Systems.  CCNA was actually developed and introduced after Cisco had developed the Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert (CCIE) certification years earlier. The CCNA certification has changed over time; at one point Cisco introduced a number of associate level certifications in Cloud, Security, and Wireless (to name just a few).  In 2019-2020 Cisco consolidated all these back into a single CCNA certification.

The CCNA version 7 exam is 200-301 and available via Pearson VUE computer based testing. A complete description of CCNA and the CCNA v7 exam blueprint from Cisco’s website.
