Take ICND1 tomorrow

CodeBloxCodeBlox Posts: 1,363Member
Studied through Netacad and my community college with hardware. Used packet tracer a bunch. Book used was Wendel Odems. I've also used boson exam engine. And I've read the modules on netacad.

I take it tomorrow at 12pm. I'm excited because it's my first exam (related to certs). I'm just doing some final touch prep, can you guys tell me what you think the toughest part is? I can subnet very fast so that's not a problem.

    Thanks, I know this cert probably isn't a big deal to a lot of people but this is my first cert exam ever!!! I don't think I'm going to get much sleep icon_neutral.gif 12 hours from now, I'll be in the exam room! I don't really know why I'm nervous, but I am. I know the material, but can't help be nervous. Weird thing is, somehow this thought got planted in my mind while I was sleeping(last night) that I was forgetting something VERY IMPORTANT related to exam subjects. It was the first thought in my mind upon waking up. I couldn't think of what it was for the life of me. Turned out it was just a dream. -_- It's as if my mind was playing tricks on me.

    Make sure you read the exam question, all the answers, and then read the question AGAIN before you select the correct answer(s). You might have missed a word or misunderstood the question the first time you read it and you may be tempted to jump on the "right answer" to the "wrong question."

    Plus that focus on the "process of answering the questions" can help you power through the "during exam jitters." I had the pre-exam jitters for my first 15 or so Cisco Exams -- and the "during exam jitters" when I took the CCNA (which was my first Certification of the modern Vendor Certification exams at Prometric/Vue era).

    Good Luck! I know the one thing I should have concentrated more on was interpreting some of the show commands but I still got a good score - with the resources you used you should do fine!!

    PASSED! 899 / 1000

    The biggest problem I had was the nervousness. I knew the content but I'm not sure why I was nervous. The other thing that didn't help was the other candidate test taker who was in the room. That son of a ***** would not stop coughing and I couldn't concentrate. Every 3 seconds he was coughing and was there for most of my time there. I had 35 minutes left on the clock when I finished.

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

    I can't speak for CodeBlox, but for me the 640-802 felt pretty easy after completing the Network Academy classes.

    And congrats on the pass CodeBlox!
