Passed CCENT Exam

Hi guys,

I am new to the forum and thought I would introduce myself.

I have recently passed the ICND1 exam at the end of September and am now in the process of studying towards achieving my CCNA certification.

My exam experience was not the best and failed the CCENT twice before passing. I could blame a number of factors, but instead I have taken it on the chin and learned from it.

My advice is simply never give up.

    The foundation of my studies was a crash course paid for by my employer.

    In addition to that, I spent 1-2 hours per day (Not religiously) for approximately 4 months using study materials such as the official cert guide by Wendell Odom, videos, Cisco labs, and Cisco's study guide.

    I also believe my failures played a part in finally achieving the CCENT certificate as the exam results outlined the areas that needed more attention.

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    That is the plan. I have taken a couple of weeks away from studying to spend it with the family. I have resumed my studies this week and hope to be CCNA certified by Christmas.

    Good call. I took too many months off between ICND1 and ICND2. Made getting back into it kind of rough.
