Failed ICND

With 837. Not happy with the questions, at least 1 must have been faulty. Does Cisco actually look at the comments you are able to leave? A few were obviously INTRO material, not sure why they were on there. Lots of detailed EIGRP questions, which I need to brush up on.

Passing INTRO so easily gave me a false sense of security on this one.

    at least you have an idea of what to expect now. Don't wait too long to take it again. I personally would recommend studying for the next 5 days hard, and take it again as soon as your able to, on that 6th day when the time limit runs out.

    It's understood that if you're taking the ICND that material also covers the INTRO. You can't really get by without the INTRO knowledge. That's a great pitfall of the two-test route, and I noticed it greatly when I took it. I felt that there was an excessive amount of INTRO material on the ICND exam myself, but after reflecting on it, I realized that the INTRO comes before the ICND for a reason. Taking the two test route isn't a free pass to forget the INTRO material once you've passed it.

    Keep your chin up, brush up on material you were weak on and take it again. I think I would have passed my test last week but the test either never got sent or was corrupted so I'm taking the ICND again next Friday myself. I was suprised myself at the questions, I expected them to be much more in depth than they were.

    Yeah I'm going to take ICND again on Saturday as well . I'm beginning to have a love/hate relationship with Cisco. One thing I can say about failing this damn cisco exams though, is believe it or not I'm really learning it. When I took my first cisco test I didn't even know how to change the hostname on a router, now I feel I can at least do Basic CCNA stuff. Keep studying and I'm sure you'll pass

    I experienced the same false sense of security for a few days after Intro. I told myself that I'd take two weeks to continue to study for the ICND before taking it. In those two weeks I realized how much I had not learned in the first wave of study. Ended up covering almost all ICND material a second time before taking the exam.
