Is this CCENT Exam Level?

I just finished studying and re-checking everything for the ICND1 exam. I only studied the Wendell Odom ICND1 book, and labbed a lot (boson, packet tracer and GNS3). I can even build my own networks implementing everything tat is covered by ICND1 without help. The Wendell Odom came with 2 ICND1 exams (for the Pearson IT Certification Practice Test software) and since I bought an e-book version as well, I got 4 ICND1 exams. I did one of them for the first time and got 933/1000. It took me 50 minutes to complete.

Is this really what I can expect, or is the real exam more difficult and with more questions? My exam had 45 questions. I seriously doubt this can be so easy... icon_sad.gif

    Yeah you're definitely ready for this. It's not that hard really, but Cisco exams are known to be upsetting at times.

    Be sure to know how to subnet like a champ. I might have failed if I didn't get 100% of the subnetting questions right.

    Good luck and don't stress out!

    ICND1 was much easier than I expected. ICND2 was more difficult than expected, especially the time crunch.

    From what I remember the tests in the Odom book and the section reviews were more difficult than the real exam. Sounds like you're ready, good luck.

    What techfiend said. ICND1 was way easier than I thought it would be and the ICND2 was harder. I'd say spend a good 50% more time studying for the ICND2 than the ICND1.

    Thanks for the replies. I couldn't believe I was so well prepared. I guess I will have a few more days of checking everything again, more labs and go for the exam.
