passed my Intro 3 weeks ago, and i will have my icnd on 12. june

my CCAI said the icnd exam will be easier than the intro, but i always read that the icnd is much harder.
Whats true?

And what are important things i have to know for passing icnd ?
Do they also ask a few questions from the INTRO exam ?

Sorry for my bad English, iam austrian.

    Were both in the same boat, im doing my icnd now aswell!!

    I obviously cant be specific about the exam coz I haven't seen it but from what I hear there is a lot of focus on subnetting and acl's. With a possibility of some wan technology and vlan's. But if I were you I would just study everything covered in the icnd blueprint


    It's better to know a bit more than miss out questions that you didn't study for, right? The exam might just surprise you!
    If my answers frighten you then you should cease asking scary questions.

    Both! The first vendor exam is always the hardest because you don't what to expect. If you pass the first exam with no problem, then you'll be more relaxed for the next exam. Plus you'll be able to alter your prepartion better to match the intensity of the exams.

    The bad news -- the questions do get harder. icon_lol.gif

    So it really depends on how you look at it.

    I have my ICND exam next Monday (19th) and I really don't know what to expect. The 2nd book has been a whole lot more challenging than the Intro book.

    I passed the Intro back in Jan with a 914 and I didn't think it was that bad. Someone told me I should just go in and take the full CCNA exam and it would be easier but I'm skeptical. icon_confused.gif
