JNCIA-SEC gone?

‎05-09-2012 09:05 AM

One of my colleagues passed the jncia security exam late last year.

 

In looking at the website I do not see any reference to a jncia security exam - just the jncia-junos exam.  While I am looking for certification re our Junos based SRX's the only certification i see described on the website is the jncia-junos test which covers many advanced routing topics.

 

Has the exam structure changed or is the web site just brain dead?

All of the JNCIA exams were combined into the same JNCIA-Junos exam as the first step.  Only at the specialist level do the track specific items kick in.  The JNCIA-Junos is a required first step for any of the Junos based tracks.

 

For the Security track this diagram shows the progression and supporting courses.

Sorry no written study guides for the resurrected JNCIA-SEC

 

The free resources would be the per topic items in Junos Genius online.  You would search for the topics listed in the exam outline like NAT and security zones and find the videos there.

 

Naturally the paid 3 day course IJSEC would cover it all but that is not free.

Actually this 3 day course is not covering most of the topics of the exam.

I've failed first attempt with 3% margin and I'd like Juniper take this post as a points to improvement of the course and preparation guide, not complains of a bad student.

1.  Course is specifically focused on J-Web, while the exam is focused on CLI.

2. Exam objectives is far from the exam, there are few question related to zones, policies, and, again, they focused on CLI. No questions regarding UTM features, VPN, IPS, Sky ATP,   Most of the questions related to routing, IPv4, IPv6 addressing. 

3. Available on Junos Genius preparation test has errors and it is mentioned by other students (PoE support in SRX series) as well. ANd it is one time test. Questions and order are always the same.

4. I have feeling that this exam is kind of fresh baked and this the reason why it has lack of comprehensive preparation guide. The best that exam creator can do just give clear exam objectives and, at least, list of documents for preparation.

 

To recap: test looks like simplified MX exam with some amount of questions about SRX. During preparation focus on CLI, routing with SRX (this is not covered with paid course at all), basics of networking (IP addressing, CIDR\VLSM). The small leftover covered by course.

Interesting feedback.  I am surprised a course is pure jweb.  I had the older version of this and while jweb was covered the labs and material also had lots of cli.

 

Also interesting that you have routing and subneting on the exam that I also don't see in the outline on the certification page.

I hope Juniper Education team could look into this. I am planning to take the examination by first quarter of succeeding year. Mind also if there could be free resources available, just like from the Open Learning.

Emmm...

 

First of all I am appologize for desinformation.

I've checked my records at VUE and it was my mistake. I've ordered and failed JN0-102, not JN0-230 which is SEC.

This explains everything and I am taking back my words and apologize once again if it was looked rude.

I'll take JN0-230 ASAP and post feedback here.

 

Second. Prep test at Genius do have errors. Pls fix it.

Third. I agree with Steve @spuluka - there should be more CLI in the course.

I passed JNCIA-SEC so I'm taking back all my words except error in mock exam.

 

Juniper's 3 day course is worth it and covers exam for 85-90 percent.

But you have to look careful in the TechLibrary and some Juniper docs for clarification.

 

And it's pretty easy exam.
