Pay special attention to a cool/useful new feature, click on the "exam topics" tab, and you will find the percentages for each topic. This should help to decide how much effort you should put into each topic.

10%     1.0   Network Principles
15%     2.0   Layer 2 Technologies
40%     3.0   Layer 3 Technologies
15%     4.0   VPN Technologies
5%      5.0   Infrastructure Security 
15%     6.0   Infrastructure Services
