This blogpost is dedicated to provide feedback for the CWISA-101 used to be known as CWSA before.
Let’s begin by looking at the objectives of the exam.
Surely you’d see that there is some overlap of the topics such as Radio Frequency Planning, Wireless Technologies and Implementing Wireless Solutions with CWNA exam. If you are like one of me who have completed the CWNA and other CWNP (CWSP, CWAP and CWDP) exam this exam will be a lot easier. Having said that there were some topics completely new to me around the IoT, Cellular Networks, LoRaWAN technologies. There is some content around Programming and Scripting but only covers basics and an overview of API.
For someone who has not completed any CWNP exams and then preparing for this one, it may be a bit overwhelming. The exam dedicated 30% of its content to Planning Wireless Solutions which encompasses around 18 questions. You can visit this link for a detailed description of the exam requirements.
Resources for the exam
- CWISA (1/2) Practice Tests
- Be sure to get hold of the official study guide – Be sure to read the book and go through the exam tips carefully. The book is available in Kindle/Hardcopy at the moment.
- Cisco Live Presentation for IoT
The exam is now a requirement to fulfil the requirements to be CWNE, so if your aim is to achieve that title you are just one step closer to it.
Also, you can choose any professional level exam (Connectivity, Integration) to do next.
Also, there are new exams in pipeline going to be announced soon.
