    I'm gonna wait on the ICND2 and focus on a microsoft cert right now I think.

    We have the same certs, haha.

    What is your work experience like?

    I work for ISP. My experience is much higher than Certifications - I would say I work on CCNP level experience wise. I'm taking exams just to make my market value higher...

    Hi Melhiore,

    Im very much interested in working for a ISP one day as im studying for CCNA and also plan to take CCNP however not before i can get myself at least a junior role in networking otherwise i feel it might be a waste of time..

    how did you manage to find yourself in that type of role.. how did your career start off and how did you get into networking with a ISP?

    Im currently doing 1st/2nd line support but networking is a dream... do you have any advice how someone can get into networking or what ISPs typically look for when recruiting?

    Thanks! :)

    @Adzmobile. There is not solid recipe on it. I have started as a Field Engineer installing equipment on customer premises. From that position I have advanced to Support as I had massive experience with live networks, Customers and I had very good idea how all this works etc. I have been given opportunity to take part in couple of projects, some provisioning etc.

    Funny enough - company does not give a monkey about my CCNA and anything else. All I have learned is for myself and for my benefit only...

    By the way - ISP is a LAST place you want work for... Believe me...

    congrats on the pass, i also passed the icnd1 just over a month ago, thou i have covered 3/4 semesters during my hnc way back in 2003, i hadn't used any cisco kit since then.

    Thou overall i thought the test was easy (not trying to be little your pass), going back over using cisco kit has been a nice experience.

    Thou i recommend your carry on with the cisco icnd2, rather than chopping and changing, otherwise when you come back to this you will need to go over a load of old stuff

    I got laid off last july and was able to get funding from the state to take classes. I studied at a place called New Horizons computer learning center. They provide materials, classroom instruction and computer simulated labs. Took me about 3 months of study to pass it.

    The materials you are using are known Braindumps. Try their web site in the certguard web site.

    I have edited your post to reflect the braindump site.

    I passed ICND1 with an 850 out of 1000. What worked for me was purchasing some routers and switches off of auction sites nd using GNS to simulate labs. I suggest that one sets up a lab for each test question to fully understand the labs and sim modules. What did not work for me was marking questions for review on the test. I ended the test and was unable to review the marked questions. Time was quick, do not putter around with a question, if you do not know mark it and answer it with a best guess. Im not sure ow the question marking works if you cant go back......

    You can't go back. I never noticed any checkbox to mark questions for review, but I knew I couldn't go back so I wasn't looking for one.

    I was sacked in July last year and was able to get support from the state to take over. I studied at a place called New Horizons Computer Learning Centre. They provide materials, classroom and laboratory computer simulation. Took me about three months of study to pass it.
