17  Cisco / CCNA / Cisco Releases New CCNA 200-125 Version 3 on: October 03, 2016, 06:57:43 AM
As you might be aware, the old CCNA (200-120) 2013 (version 2) has retired effective from 20th September.
The new exam is 200-125, CCNA Version 3.

There are some notable changes from the old CCNA, including removal of Frame Relay and inclusion of RIP v2. Note that RIP v2 was removed from 200-120, and has been reintroduced in the latest version, a welcome move.

There is more coverage on Cloud concepts, and wireless controllers.

Overall, there is not much of a change as far as the core Routing and Switching are concerned. Peripheral topics such as Cloud, Wireless, and a few others have been added. As they are not in depth, it is not going to take much time to prepare if you are going to recertify.

The objectives may be viewed at the official page here:

For exam info., and practice tests, you may check the link below:

Basic concepts on hierarchical networking architecture and collapsed core design have been included in the new CCNA from conceptual point of view.

Of course, the constituent exams have also been updated as below:
Old exam number: 100-101
Net exam number: 100-105

21  CompTIA / A+ forum / CompTIA Released New A+ Stream of Exams, 220-901 and 220-902! on: January 27, 2016, 04:21:08 AM
CompTIA has recently released new A+ exams,

220-901 A+ Essentials and
220-902 A+ Practical Application

The exams were released on 15th Dec 2015, and are now available for candidates across the test centers in English language. Other languages are going to be released over the due course of time.

Check out the official CompTIA website for more information:

Though most of the topics are same as that of previous version, the first impressions are as below:
1. XP has been retired, no more questions on XP OS
2. Expect Windows 7,8,8.1 based questions
3. Windows 10 is not covered explicitly in the syllabus, however, it is better to have some working knowledge on the same.
4. Device security, particularly mobile devices security is included
5. Topics on iPhone, and Linux OSes has been included (prilimimary CLI - type commands). As you might be knowing, Android topics had been already covered in the previous version, and the same have been retained or expanded.
6. Network topologies seems to have become obsolete, particularly, Star, Mesh, and Ring topologies.

The current exams 220-801 and 220-802 are going to retire by June 2016. If you already passed one exam (say 220-801, you need to pass the other by June 2016. You can't mix the streams. i.e. you can't take 220-801, and 220-902, etc.

All the best!

25  General discussions / General Discussion / Microsoft Windows 10 .. Will it be a success like it's predecessor Windows 7? on: August 02, 2015, 06:35:36 AM
MS has released Windows 10 OS with much fanfare. Will it be a success in the market? What are the big differences between Windows 7/8 and Windows 10? Will it support things like LTE, etc.? Is it worth to upgrade the existing Windows 7 OS to Windows 10?

However, one thing is clear. The hardware requirements are going up, and the existing hardware is getting obsolete with every release of Microsoft OS. One wonders whether it is necessary to have OS upgrades so soon and so fast? In turn, it is increasing the cost of ownership.

Checkout this article on new features with Windows 10 (not very innovative, though):

Going by the indications, it may not be very different, and an average user will continue to used Windows7/8.1 and probably will not upgrade any sooner!
