Hi everybody, me again !!

I just want to say in a couple of hours I´ll be taken the CCENT.....and I´m really nervous.

I read some tips and experiences from this forum....and I think that biggest enemy could be time.

I studied from the Cisco Press from W. Odom....and did the practice questions on the Boson Exam Environment.

Could you give me aditional tips, perhaps for improve my time for the exam...

Thanks for all your advices...

    Make use of the time you are given to read the instructions, for most people it leaves time to spare. Take that time to jot down things you are weak on for a reference on the test. Like common subnets, and binary to decimal conversions. Slashdot the subnet mask conversions, etc. That will help you with the time issue if you can get the hard math done before you officially start the test.


    Oh, and Good luck! I wish you skill and competence!

    Keep track of the time but don't rush. I know I missed at least one question because I was rushing through because I didn't want to run out of time but I ended up with more than 20 minutes left at the end.

    Good Luck!! icon_thumright.gif

    Don't spend more than 10 minutes on a SIM. If you've done enough lab practice you should be able to do easily do them in far less than that -- but if you do get something "strange" you can hope it's one of the ungraded "beta questions."

    Good luck on your exam!

    I just passed mine yesterday with 8 minutes left. I remember I rushed during my first attempt and failed with about 15 minutes to spare. I skipped the simulator. The simulator got me good the last time, but I managed to face it this time. You do need to know other possible commands to find clue to the answers if the command you try does not work.

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

    hahaha...I don´t feel well to celebrate, it seems like i´m getting flu !! icon_cry.gif

    anyway, I should start tomorrow with ICDN2 like you said.

    I have a doubt. I don´t have a mailbox here in Panama, Will Cisco send the certificate to my email ?

    another question...do we receive a CCENT certification or just for the CCNA? This is my first certification and I don´t know how it works..

    again guys...thanks for your support...

    As I recall you can just download the PDF version off their website, seems like it was $15, just print it on a good laser printer and it looks just as good as the one they mail you.

    Yes -- you should get a Certificate for your CCENT Certification.

    There used to be instructions on the score sheet -- and a follow up email with the same information. In a day or two (or more depending on the holiday here in the US) you should be able to log into the Cisco Certification Tracking System (and create your account if your a first time Cisco Certification earner).

    You'll get a chance to verify your information and select your free copy of your Certification -- either the paper certificate via snail mail or an electronic version (PDF). The PDF is probably going to be faster, but you don't get the laminated wallet card or congratulation letter from John Chambers.

    I always selected the free paper copy -- and paid the $15 for a 2nd Electronic copy for some instant gratification. They might still have an option to pay an expedited shipping fee for the "free paper copy" if you wanted it sooner. Back in the old days those would ship via DHL.
