    Passed this today. Thought the exam was easier than expected, although I know I messed up the first few questions (stress!).

    I'm sure I did well on all the sim questions and that's probably what recovered / boosted my score.

    Passing score: 804
    My score: 883

    On the my Cisco score sheet, it says that (Cisco Policy) you need to wait 180 days to retake the same exam! Is this just a UK thing? Very happy I passed, did to not want to wait all that time to try again.

    A few days rest then start on the ICND2.

    Congrats on the pass :)

    It's a Cisco policy not just a UK thing :)

    You only need to wait 180 days to sit the same exam if you pass:

    But if you fail the exam the waiting period is only 5 days:

    Hope this helps :)

    Ok, but why sit the exam again if you pass?

    Hi, if you dont mind me asking what revision materials did you use?

    Also without trying to give too much away did you do the use cisco press book and were the questions in that 9for each section) relevant?

    If so i should be reasonably confident lol

    deadzebra,

    The reason why you need to wait 180 days to retake the same exam is because some people may need to retake the exam for a higher score to become eligible Cisco Certified Systems Instructors. The passing score for Cisco Certified Systems Instructors or candidates are higher than Cisco Career Certification. Therefore, they may need to retake the exact same exam for a higher score to either become eligible or remain a Cisco Certified Systems Instructor.

    My revision stuff:

    Books: CCNA Official Exam Cert Library - ICND1 + ICND2. I have only read ICND1 (twice) so far.
    Free with books - Boson (Cisco) Exam on CD. (Very useful)
    TestOut CCNA training DVD (lots of video training + includes a number of simulators to learn IOS)

    +other info found on Web.

    Took me about 3 months to go through all of the above. I already have Comptia Network+, but this first exam (ICND1) is much harder, a lot more stuff needs to be learned.

    The questions in the book are very simple, but the questions found on the free exam (Boson/Cisco) are very relevant and much more challenging - a great learning tool.

    Nick.
