Hi guys,

I passed ICND1 with 890 out of 832. Below are my study resources. I plan on immediately studying for ICND2. If I can do this, you can too!!! Work hard and stay motivated!

-Wendell Odom's ICND1 100-105 book.
-Chris Bryant's CCNA 200-125 Videos.
-Ranet's packet tracer labs.

What do you guys recommend for ICND2? I already have Wendell Odom's ICND2 book and can use Chris Bryant's videos. Will Ranet's packet tracer labs suffice for this exam? Or should I seek other labs for this exam?

    Great job!

    I am not familiar with the labs you used but I had great luck with Odom's books. I personally had trouble listening to most of bryant's videos. The material was covered but the format put me to sleep. ICND2 builds on 1 so definitely keep going. I would not take a break between them of more then a few weeks.

    Thanks man.

    Yeah I listened to most of them on my commute to and from work. My drive is an hour to and from work so I took advantage of that.

    Congrats! Personally I found the CBT nugget videos to be pretty good along with the Odom book. If you can afford it the Boson practice exams and sims were pretty helpful too.
