Passed ICND1 ... 950!!

bout2kbout2k Posts: 28Member ■■■□□□□□□□
I passed my exam this morning with a 950! I received a 0 for the WAN category. I had 30 minutes remaining when I finished. Here is how I passed . (With my recommended order)

1. CBT Nuggets - Jeremy is the man!!
2. Lammle Book - My favorite
3. Odom - More detail
4. Boson Exam Prep (Amazing)

After going through steps 1,2, and 3 I took the Boson exams. I ended up getting between 65% and a 75% on the exams. This allowed me to concentrate my studies on certain areas. Before I took the actual Cisco exam I was getting between 85% and 95% on the boson exams. The boson exam prep was much harder than the actual exam. I HIGHLY recommend the boson tests. (I hope this all makes sense)

    I am purchasing the Boson exams today. I keep hearing about how good they are. My test is scheduled for 4/13.

    Congrats on the pass. Was this your first Cisco exam/first time at this exam?

    Congrats mate, I passed it today as well, although my score wasn't nearly as good xD
    I got a 0 in the WAN category as well, I don't think it's anything to worry about. I don't remember being asked any questions about WAN technologies.

    Congrats! icon_cheers.gif I took the ICND1 yesterday and received a 899. I got a 0 on the WAN category too. I sat there trying to figure out where they asked about WAN technology and couldn't think of anything. Weird stuff.

    Is it possible you guys are getting a set of test questions that somehow don't include WAN technologies? You lucky dogs! Anyway, congrats on the pass(es)!

    That's weird when I took mine about 8 weeks ago, I got a 0 on WAN too. Still passed though.

    Congrats on the pass!

    Op - congrats! Do you honestly think bosoms are needed if you have gone through Lammle/Odom books + CBT review?

    I guess I'll find out, by just going with Lammle/Odom books + CBT access/lab. BOSOMs are just as much as the test itself cost wise :/

    I think that you can definitely pass without Boson. It just made things much easier for me because it allowed me to focus on my weak areas. I also liked the fact that the Boson exam was much harder than the ICND1 exam. I honestly felt that the ICND1 exam was easy. As I was going through the exam I was waiting for things to get harder and they never did.
