    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    Congrats!

    Would you say ccentquestions.com is a 'good' resource? I'm able to easily answer most of those (90% my first time through, flew through it) but don't feel anywhere near ready for the exam yet

    For 'select one' type of questions on ICND1, ccentquestions is a good website to practice.

    so i'll be planning for my ICND2 studying from next week and was wondering what material to choose. Do you guys think i should carry on studying from Wendell Odoms material, which i did for ICND1, or is there better material out there for me to try?

    What current edition is the Wendell Odom ICND2 book?

    Also, i used CBTNuggets for ICND1, should i add Chris Bryant videos to the mix too?

    any advice will be appreciated

    Chris Bryant goes in way too deep and you end up wondering "do I really need to know this?" Jeremy is the opposite - you won't fall asleep but he does miss out quite a bit. Good for a broad overview.

    Wendell's book is the best IMO. Get s it spot on and seems to miss nothing. Bit heavy but I think it has to be

    For me for ICND2 I used the following in this order:
    - Jeremy with CBTNuggets
    - Read Odem's ICND2 book
    - Took Chris Bryant's course at udemy.com

    Of the 3 I think Chris gave me the most useful info. I say start with Jeremy as he does a very good job of explaining things, but lacks some details. Chris does go into detail, but some of that detail was on the exam. Odem for me was last, as its just dry to read, but is needed.

    Good luck :)
