On Tuesday 12th June this week I took the Cisco ICND 1 and managed to pass luckily. I was studying this on and off for a year! One thing I was mostly worried about was hearing other people’s stores about running out of time. I found I had 50 minutes left (this may be because of the intense studying I did) – I also have some Cisco experience.
I used the following materials:
- Trainsignal – There is additional content which allows you to copy the material to an Apple/Android device – The videos are reduced in quality – but makes studying on the go, listening in the car etc much easier. Every bit of studying helps!
- CBT Nuggets
- subnettingquestions.com – Free Subnetting Questions and Answers Randomly Generated Online
- Cisco Cheat Sheets
- Youtube for extra explanations
- Evernote – I found this useful to sync my study notes across all my devices (PC, Laptop, Android phone and Android Tablet)
There are some apps on the Android play store that can also help:
Now for the ICND 2 (CCNA), I ‘plan’ on doing this in the next couple of months.
