So I took the exam back at the end of 2011, and failed. Decided I needed more time to get in depth, didn't try and rush it took my time studying each domain in depth! Passed with an 888 this time around! Im sure my score was affected by the fact that I second guessed myself a few times due to nervousness!

My study materials:
Todd Lammle Seventh edition CCNA
CBTnuggets
Boson Sims
Packet Tracer
Home Lab

My advice to anyone else taking the exam is to take your time, learn the information completely, don't short change yourself know the concepts inside and out. Last time I took it I rushed and was unsure of my answers, this time it was easier to determine the right answer due to a deeper knowledge of the concepts.

    I stayed away from Odom his content was way to dry for me, some people love his books, I just couldn't get into them. Todd, and Jeremy from CBTNuggets explained it very well for me. I just kept reading and re-reading the book. I watched quite a few youtube videos for subjects I was struggling to grasp. I just didn't move from a subject until I felt like I knew it inside and out.

    Congrats!

    I liked your approach of figuring out how things really work, which made it a bit easier.

    I believe that I once heard someone say that they'd made the CCNA into a minimum admission test. If you couldn't clear the bar, then you weren't in the club.

    I guess this means you're in the club now. :D
