CCNA Study Resources

Passing the CCNA exam can be a big challenge for many candidates, as the minimum passing score is 825 out of 1000. That means a passing grade requires 82.5% correct answers. In the CCNA exam, candidates are presented with approximately 60-70 questions to be answered within 90 minutes, and the questions are of following three types:

  • Multiple choice questions (approx. 40-45 questions)
  • Drag-and-drop questions (approx. 5-10 questions)
  • Lab simulations (approx. 5-6 questions)

The above questions do not have equal weight – lab simulations have the highest weight in terms of marks. (Please note that this is empirical observation,per my and other candidates’ exam experience.) However,Cisco never shares the specific worth of individual questions.
