Thoughts on ICND1

DeesielDeesiel Posts: 54Member ■■□□□□□□□□
I passed the ICND1 today. I studied for about a month. I used the Sybex CCNA book (640-802, I originally planned to do the 1 test route.), CBTNuggets, and CCENT ExamCram. I also read threads on this site and others. These materials worked well for me. When I took the test, I didn't think it was hard. I felt confident in the material.

Thank you all for contributing to the forum!

    Congrats! If you were able to go through ICND1 that quickly you should be able to do ICND2 just as quickly.

    Congrats, man!
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Thanks all.

    Now that I think about it, I actually studied for about 2 months. I originally planned to take it towards the end of June, but I didn't feel ready by then.

    Nicely done mate! Congrats.

    Now I need to do that. I'm still however reading through the 640-802. Up to chapter 9.

    I plan to get the CCNA out of the way in the next 2 months.

    congrats man... I hope to slay CCENT this coming month. I am still in link-state routing protocol topic though. GNS3 is awesome.

    It's refreshing to hear someone doing this. I've wanted to take 2-4 months and study for the test but thought it was unrealistic to pass. I am also working on my degree and working full time so we shall see!

    I'm also a full time student, have 2 young children, a pregnant wife in her third trimester, and began working full time in the beginning of July. If I can do it, you can too!
    I exaggerated when I said I only studied for 1 month (it felt like 1 month... time seems to be flying for me lately), but I definately didn't study for more than 2. I bought the Sybex book in the beginning of June, and that marked the beginning of my studies.
    I failed to mention that I also used Packet Tracer 5.3 and tried all the commands that were mentioned in the CBT Nuggets video, and several in the Sybex 640-802 book (I haven't read this entire book yet BTW).
