Passed CCENT Today!!

dpsdps Posts: 116Member
So I took my first Cisco exam this morning and passed it! This is my first certification ever and I'm glad i got it.

I used the CBT Nuggets, CCNA by Lammle, CCNA Intro by Odom, and the TestOut Navigator. Did a lot of subnetting practices and used the Cisco Exam Prep Center.

I was scheduled at 10:30AM and I got to the testing area around 10:15. There were a lot of buildings there so I kinda got lost in the area. Good thing I saved their number and called them up for directions. Started on time and ended 19 minutes earlier. I thought I'll run out of time because of some SIMs. Time management is the key.

Anyway, it's a good start for the long weekend and I'll prolly hit the books for ICND2 next week.

Thanks for the help. This site really helped me a lot.
Focused and Steady.

    Thanks.

    Oh man. I've been studying on and off for months because I was busy with work and family life. I finally drilled down and studied for about a month. I went online and scheduled the exam and really focused on it. I recommend scheduling the exam so you have a deadline to beat and not putting it off.

    I'm excited for the ICND2. I want to get my CCNA before the Cisco 2nd shot offer expires.

    Yup, took mine there and on a weekend too.
    They have good PC's with flat-screen monitors which is good. I've heard some stories about testing centers that have computers and monitors that you have to "fight" along with the exam. :D
