    Sweet. I thought it would be expensive though and at 79.99, its one of the last things that I could get right now. I think it'll be very helpful for the people who are new the tests that cisco have. I hope it's better than the boson exams that come with the Odom library set.
    Booya!!

    Yeah I just got the books that come with those tests but I haven't checked em out yet though, but I would imagine its better since the questions and setup are suppose to be writen by the same people who wrote the real exam.

    All I want to know is why they don't come with the, "official" certification guides?

    My 2 cents on the exams that come with the odom books are they are great, why would you need anythign else? His practice exams are harder than the CCNA exam itself.

    The exams that come with the Odom books are ones by Boson not Odom himself.

    Actually Odom (and Cisco press) did write the practice exams that came with the book(s). I submitted two corrections for the ICND2 'Simulation 1' and 'Simulation 2' and Bosom sent me this.

    Hello,
    Wendell Odom here, author of the ICND2 Exam Cert Guide. You wrote in yesterday about a possible problem with questions ICND2-SIM-1 and ICND2-SIM-2. You are indeed correct, the Sim is not accepting the correct answer as correct. We're posting this and a few other Sim-related problems to our Sim vendor today. The answer listed as "correct" in the explanation text is indeed correct in both cases. Our apologies for the problem.
    Regards,
    Wendell Odom
    Lab on!

    Ah interesting. I thought the practise test included was just part of their regular test engine product. Didn't know that it was actually specific to that book and written by Odom himself.

    Because the official certification guides come from Cisco Press, which is not actually a part of Cisco, despite it's name.
