As of this writing, the written exams still allow you to move forward
and backward. However, it is best to always check the Cisco Web site
before taking any exam to get the most up-to-date information.
After you complete an exam, you'll get immediate, online notification of
your pass or fail status, a printed Examination Score Report that indicates
your pass or fail status, and your exam results by section. (The test admin-
istrator will give you the printed score report.) Test scores are automatically
forwarded to Cisco within five working days after you take the test, so you
don't need to send your score to them. If you pass the exam, you'll receive
confirmation from Cisco, typically within two to four weeks.

nations for any question you get wrong, and note which chapters the
material comes from. This information should help you plan your
study strategy.

the information and the test topics listed at the beginning of each
chapter. Pay extra-close attention to any chapter where you missed
questions in the Assessment Test.
Complete all hands-on exercises in the chapter, referring to the chap-
ter so that you understand the reason for each step you take. If you do
not have Cisco equipment available, make sure to study the examples
carefully. Also, check for a router simulator.
