CCENT Tomorrow

EdificerEdificer Member Posts: 185
I have read pretty much anything I studied several times over, spent countless hours in regards to subnetting and understanding OSPF, since both of those two make up half of the exam I read on topics covered. With all that I am not feeling any better and in fact freaky nervous! Have been told I will get a 30-minute extension because English is not my first language. 140 minutes in total. So, time is really not of concern for me, I think. The conditions of the testing center is great and isolated too.

I wonder if people really twist themselves into knots and overestimate the first part of the CCNA. Does anyone have any advice on what I should try to understand more and fit into my brain quickly. If you have taken the ICND 1 what question category has stumped you most? If any.

    From what I have seen if you covered all of the material then it is usually time that gets you.
    I don't think you should focus on cramming in more data. Get a good rest and eat something light before you take the test. Whatever you do to relax try that today.

    Good Luck!

    I personally found EIGRP more difficult to pick-up than OSPF. To understand the topics more for the CCNA I recommend Packet Tracer, CBT Nugget videos and lots of note taking. Good luck for your exam tomorrow and the rest of your stuides.

    So if you take the exam in the non native language, the benefit is that you gain extra 30 mins?

    Thanks for all the congrats, I really appreciate it. I have already cracked open the Wendell Odom 200-101 book. Loving it! It's 100 pages shorter than Wendell's 100-101 lol.

    My full exam allowed time was 120 mins, not 140 mins.
    30 mins + if English is not your first language.
