Below are two things that can help you with taking your Cisco CCNA exam and that will make the exam less harrowing for you.

Jot down any important points prior to exam.

Before starting your test, ask for some scratch paper so you can write down the points you might have to remember while you’re taking the exam. This is permitted during the cert exam and many people find it really helpful. These things might include:
