It's Official

I'm taking the ICND1 exam on Friday (Jan 3rd). I can do subneting in my head, for the most part, and going over practice tests and official Cisco flash cards. Any last minute advice before the test?

    Good luck! Make sure you give a day or two for that New Years hang over to settle!

    Thanks. I don't drink, so I will use that time to study for the exam.

    Make sure you do some last min labbing. Go over all your show commands. Know what each one does, what they're used for, & how they differentiate between each other (show interfaces status vs show interfaces vs show ip interfaces brief for example). Know all the output for all the commands.

    And take a few mins to take the Cisco Exam tutorial featured on their site. It'll get you more comfortable w/ the layout of the actual exam UI.

    Good luck!!

    I can't speak to the content on the exam but as someone mentioned before, be sure you are familiar with the commands in their original format

    i.e.

    Instead of "wr" you will most likely be required to use "copy running-config startup-config"

    Instead of "sh run", you will most likely have to type it all out "show running-config"

    show ip interface brief
    show ip protocols
    show interface F0/1 bla bla

    Good luck!
    Modularity and Design Simplicity:

    Think of the 2:00 a.m. test—if you were awakened in the
    middle of the night because of a network problem and had to figure out the
    traffic flows in your network while you were half asleep, could you do it?

    I don't have any great advice. I think labbing is probably better then last minute memorization.

    Good Luck!

    I second that. It gets me too nervous doing that. Trying to cram something in my head that I couldn't get in there in the first place... not good.

I hoped to take it sometime in Dec 2013..But got busy with stuff,and haven't finish reading Odom's book (now i finished it and watched CBTNuggets vids,and practiced labs in Packet Tracer) so pushed on my original plan of January. Now no turning back and nervous as hell lol. Goodluck to the both of us! icon_thumright.gif

    Blessings rembot! Speaking of objectives. I looked at them last night, and I can't figure out what they mean by "Upstream routing" (Objective 4.8b).
  • sspazyysspazyy Posts: 1Registered Users ■□□□□□□□□□
    Hope this helps...Quote from Odom's Official Cert Guide 100-101, pg 390:
    "Finally, for those of you paying close attention to the exam topics, note that the subtopics
    about inter-VLAN routing and ROAS mention “upstream routing.” This topic refers to a basic
    concept: The router that uses ROAS might only need to route between those subnets off the
    VLAN trunk, but more than likely, the router will also need to route packets to other subnets
    in other parts of the enterprise network. This “upstream routing” topic simply reminds us to not
    forget about the need to configure other router interfaces, static routes, a routing protocol, and
    so on, so that the router can forward packets to other “upstream” destinations."

    Congrats and well done guys. a Pass is a pass and remember Cisco exams require a pass mark of 80% so I recon any pass score is good.
