DrethylDrethyl Member Posts: 121 ■■□□□□□□□□
Hey guys today was my first attempt at the ICND 1 and I got a 894/1000. My main two resources were the Odom book as well as CBTNuggets which is absolutely amazing. If you find any of the books hard to get through like myself I suggest checking out the CBT videos they are amazing and easy to follow.

Also a big thanks to kMastaFlash for getting me a good deal on a voucher, it really got me into gear to study.

    Hey Cisconoob2,

    In total I had 50 questions 3 of which were simlet questions. If I had to guess I'd say around 7 questions were subnetting related. My time was pretty good I believe it took me around 40 minutes to finish the test. The questions that took me the longest were the subnetting ones because I was writing them down and doing them.

    I studied for about two months. I started using CBT Nugget videos the last week before I took the test. I am going to take ICND2 this weekend and hope for the best. All together I would say I put a solid two months of studying in for the test.
