CCNA:RS passed!

Hi All,

I am happy to say I have finally passed my ICND2 with a score of 825 (811 pass). For those of you that saw my older thread, I passed my ICND1 on Jan 23 and I pretty much started studying right after getting my CCENT. Luckily, I was able to pass the ICND2 on my first attempt, as I failed the ICND1 the first time. I must say, I took considerably longer studying for the ICND1 than I did for the ICND2. The ICND1 is most definitely the easier exam, but the climb from zero knowledge to ICND1 is far more daunting than the jump from ICND1 to ICND2.

For those of you out there who are struggling with the CCNA, my best advise to you is not to give up! Stay discipline and you will pass! I have to say that studying for the CCNA really taught me to change my entire process for learning. It is almost like I had to forget everything I thought I knew about studying/learning for a cert, and basically teach myself proper study habits and techniques.

Here is what I used to prepare:
Odom Cisco Press Book
CBT Nuggets
Chris Wallace Videos
Boson & Pearson practice exams
Packet Tracer (Primary)
GNS3 (Secondary)

    I actually found when I took it before they made the completely new version, the ICND1 was almost harder than the ICND2, because it contained many more obscure questions whereas the ICND2 was almost like the real CCNA for me with heavier weight on routing protocols configuration / behaviors.

    I know the INCD1 and INCD2 are much harder now than they were back in my day, very big congrats to you sir!! :D
