I wrote my Juniper JN0-101 exam on the 3rd of October. A very different experience to the cisco exams.
The exam was rather easy. But there are a few things I need to note.
It consisted of 65 Questions and I had 90 Minutes in which to complete the exam. I had a total of 4 questions relating to Basic binary conversion. Like what is the decimal value of 1100100. The majority of the exam was about juniper operating system (JunOS) theory. Like root authentication, what the % symbol indicates.
After the Terms and Conditions, you go straight to your first question and the timer starts. That took me slightly off gaurd. I’m used to a 15 minute window with practice exams. So be ready!
I found that the JN0-101 Exam was focused on routing. OSPF, BGP and RIP in particular. The exam assumes you know the basics of networking. I would highly recommend doing a Network+ or CCENT course before you attempt the Juniper JN0-101 exam. Make sure you understand how networks work.
Be careful when you right the exam, as some of the questions answers are Cisco commands. So if you come from a Cisco background, your first instinct is to go for the Cisco command. The commands are different for Juniper. Make sure you know and understand the syntax.
Exam Length: 90 Minutes
Questions in the exam: 65
Required score for Passing: 66%
The Juniper JNCIA exam is marked in % and not out of a 1000 like cisco. That is a nice Change. A very cool thing in this exam was the ability to mark questions for review, go back and forward in the exam. If you mark a question for review or leave the question un-answered, you can go back to those questions and redo them.
You can take the JN0-101 exam (JNCIA Certification) in South Africa with a Pearson Vue testing center. I use Torque IT.
