I am scheduled to take the ICND1 test on Mon. Dec 1st. I just wanted to ask if there were any tips on taking the exam. I have never taken a cisco exam before. I have take and passed the comptia security +. Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

    Passed today.

    NFLB everything.

    Know OSPF and how to trouble shoot OSPF. Know your show commands or be willing to use the ? feature.

    Know how a switch works: IE if a switch gets a packet that it doesn't know where to send to, it sends it out all interface except the source.

    Byronicbluez sums it up pretty well, but make sure that you had a good night sleep and stay relaxed, good luck :)

    Congrats! What study material did you use?

    Mainly the CCNA study guide from Todd Lammle and CBT nuggets. For practice I used packet tracer for switching and GNS3.
