    Hi,

    I have booked this exam for middle of next month. I was wondering if anyone has taken this exam and have some tips for me.

    Thanks in advance

    Yep, I have... I'd recommend studying the Cisco Press ICND1 book. Not sure if Sybex has an ICND1 book out yet.

    If you do not yet have hands-on experience with Cisco devices, do so. You will absolutely need it.

    Don't just memorize a bunch of information... figure out HOW and WHY things work the way they do.

    Best of luck!

    Hi,

    Thanks for reply,
    I have studied the book you have mentioned and revising now. I have an old router at home which I usually play around with. I am hoping that would be enough.

    Thanks again
    Hoss

    BosonMichael,

    The "Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices, Part 1 (ICND1): CCNA Exam 640-802 and ICND1 Exam 640-822, 2nd Edition" book from Cisco Press is the Self-study guide for the ICND1 exam and will be available December 21, 2007. The "CCENT/CCNA ICND1 Official Exam Certification Guide (CCENT Exam 640-822 and CCNA Exam 640-802), 2nd Edition " book is currently available but since it's the "Exam Certification Guide" it designed to be a self paced boot camp to prepare for the exam so it isn't designed to teach you the material with the depth that you need to know.

    I'd have to disagree with you regarding your comments about the "Exam Certification Guides". I've got both the ICND1 and ICND2 ECGs right in front of me, and they go into quite a bit of depth. In fact, the ECGs tend to have MORE pages in them than the non-ECGs from Cisco Press do.

    All that said, if I had to choose to get either the ECG titles or the non-ECG titles... I'd probably have to choose the non-ECG titles. :)

    Hi Hoss

    I took the 640-822 yesterday and passed (relief!).

    I studied with the Cisco press CCENT/CCNA ICND 1 Official Exam Certification Guide 2nd ed by Wendell Odom.

    To be fair, I already had binary skills and basic network knowledge from previous studies but the book is excellent at covering exactly what you need to pass the exam. I could never understand how to work out subnetting before but now I've got it nailed, which is essential for the vast majority of questions in the exam. The included exam sim is worthwhile practice but remember to reconfigure it to simulate the exam options rather than 'study mode'.

    I would definitely reccomend you get another router or two and maybe a switch, so you see what is happening and how it works, plenty of cheap bargains on ebay.

    Good luck
