Just passed ICND2!!!

The test was tough, I barely scraped by with a 846. I'll admit I underestimated it, it was a lot more difficult than ICND1. I finished ICND1 with like 25 mins to spare, I barely finished this exam with 3 mins left, lol.

I honestly thought I didn't pass because I didn't complete one of the sims about halfway through the exam. This started messing with my head and I started thinking about rescheduling another exam for next sat, etc. But I forced myself to stand up, stretch my legs and take a deep breath and focus on the last 30 questions. :)

Thanks for all the advice and posts on this forum. It was encouraging to read stories by other people and of course the advice was invaluable. See you guys on the CCNP side!

    Yep -- that's why I say to "kick it up a notch" for ICND2. Want to take a guess how many notches you're going to have to kick it up for the CCNP exam? :D

    You're probably going to want to spend lots more time on lab work -- the more rack/dynamips (or simulator) time you get, the more a lot of things will make sense.

    Good Luck on the CCNP! icon_cool.gif

    Well, it obviously makes sense for the ICND 2 to be more difficult than ICND 1! There is no way it can be easier. ICND 2 builds upon what you learned in ICND 1. icon_wink.gif
