Should I take it as a whole or in 2 parts?

Ive taken the 4 courses through my local comm. college and believe I am knowledged enough to take the test.

Anyone recommend some good free sim tests?

Mind asking me some odd ball questions so I can answer them?


I am currently going over previous chapter quizzes, just to get things fresh!

    I would recommend grabbing the CCNA exam certification library if you don't have it. You can purchase it for $38.00 from Amazon. The reason I say that is because you can get the Boson exam software, to take practice exams. They include sims as well. The best thing you can do in addition to that is just lab EVERYTHING and ANYTHING you have covered.

    I have access to all the books/labs provided by Cisco (Will have access for another 6 months).

    So I can look at routing, switching, wans.. etc ...

    I might spend 2-3 weeks pounding out labs to get everything fresh again. Choose 1 lab from each chapter, from each sections ( So like 30 labs all together).

    That's what I would recommend. I wouldn't take too long, that way you don't lose anything you have learned. But I would recommend that and I highly recommend you labbing all types of NAT configuration. ACL configurations, VLAN, and STP configs, etc...

    Agreed, what helped me was making a reference chart for the possible subnets and multiples of 2's. This saved me a lot of time and prevented the errors that usually happen when I try to solve subnetting problems in my head lol.
