The Cisco CCNA Competition Events

On Line Exam

Competitors will be required to take an on-line exam that mimics the actual 801 exam.  They will have 60 minutes to answer 75 questions.  All questions will be of multiple choice nature.  Scoring will be done on a percentage basis.  This activity can earn two awards: for the highest single score and second as a team score (each team members scores will be added up and the highest team score will win the overall team score).  Questions will be similar to those seen in the Cisco 801 practice CD, Troytech, and Techmindworks.  There will be a total data base of questions in excess of 400 questions that each competitor will  random draw 75 questions from.

Jeopardy Game

Competitors will compete in a Jeopardy like game.  There will be 4 competitors playing at one time.  They will have the opportunity to answer questions from a single board containing 5 categories, each category having 5 questions. There will be one opportunity for a double Jeopardy question.  The competitor that has the greatest point total overall will win the individual category and once again the total point values of all four members will be added to determine an overall team score.  

Hands on Cabling Activity

Competitors will compete against the clock to make three cables: a patch, a roll-over, and a cross over.  Each cable must be a minimum of 2 meters in length and follow all IEEE specifications.  All three cables must pass!  The competitor who completes all three cables in the least amount of time is will the individual category and total team time will win the team category.

Team Networking Activity

Competitors will compete as a team in this activity.  The team will be given a set of routers, cables, switch and tools.  Each team will be given a scenario and be required to perform it.  This activity will directly follow the Semester 2 hands-on activity.  A stack of routers will be pre-configured for the team.  These routers will be incorrectly configured and be unable to communicate with one another.  The task of the team will be to get all five routers communicating with one another.  The team will be scored on time.  Each team is given a maximum of 60 minutes to complete the task.
