  Passed ICND2 - now I have CCNA!
Posted by: toko - 04-10-2009, 10:04 PM - Forum: Exam Experience - Replies (2)

Smile ;D

Thank you how2pass.  I normally don't write these messages but I'm very happy. I used how2pass to practice for both ICND1 and ICDND2 exams where I got 950 and 930 respectively.

Definitely for me ICND2 was more stressful as I'm more familiar with subnetting than routing but it turned out ok.  I finished with 8 minutes to spare but I was super stressed halfway through as I got a bunch of difficult questions right at the start.  The last 10 were a breeze.

The practice simulations were helpful.  I ended up getting an OSPF sim in the exam and it was not exactly the same as in the practice sims here but I knew enough to figure it out obviously from studying here.

Thanks BATMAN!  8)

  Question QID:N514
Posted by: taetak101 - 04-10-2009, 07:45 PM - Forum: Answer this question - Replies (1)

The answer for this question has a directly connect port being blocked. the connection from sw1 back to the root switch sw3. I thought each path from the root switch that is directly connected to the root is marked as a root port, and the election for the other ports of the non root switch would make a selection to forward or block. what am I missing?

I don't understand this one.  Why do you have to allow ICMP to pass to the inside interface?

  Passed April 3rd 877
Posted by: segesublime - 04-04-2009, 06:18 PM - Forum: CCNP ENARSI 300-410 - Replies (2)

I had three Labs and one Simlet:

Labs -
ISIS/EIGRP Redistribution
IPV6 Virtual Links

Simlet -
EIGRP Topology Output

This is the first time that I have ever taken a certification test and in the first 10 minutes thought I would fail.  I had about 20 questions I had never seen before, tons of multicasting. I got so shaken in the first 10 minutes, I didn't even answer the Virtual Links lab-just completely skipped it cause I was stressed and didn't slow down and think.

This is also the first time I had not checked these forums prior to my test - big mistake but my fault.

But, I somehow passed and the ospf and redistribution labs were easy along with EIGRP sim. All I did was read the Cisco Press book and H2P. This was the hardest test I had to take so far.

Make sure you know the theory and it does help to know how to read the command outputs!

  Passed BSCI today April 3rd with a 833
Posted by: ciscomon - 04-03-2009, 10:33 PM - Forum: CCNP ENARSI 300-410 - Replies (1)

Passed BSCI today with a 833 for my second time recertifying my CCNA/CCDA/CCDP/CCNP.

This is the second time I used HOW2PASS and it didn't disappoint. The forum is a big assist to.
I bought the current 4th edition Cisco CCNP BSCI Exam  Certification book to. 
Also used all the free testing engines I could find on the internet but only paid for HOW2PASS since I used them the first time I certified.

Had 3 labs and 1 simlet same as "BAMF"
  OSPF Stub
  ISIS/EIGRP Redistribution
  IPV6 Virtual Links
  EIGRP Topology Output.

Thanks to the posting by "BAMF" to look out for the IPV6 Virtual Link lab.
I found a link which is all you need to understand to configure it.

Seemed also to have allot of questions on BGP and multicasting.
Spent two months studying. I suggest take the exam in the afternoon and cram for it in the morning, thats what I did.

  Just passed
Posted by: Random73 - 04-02-2009, 05:53 PM - Forum: Exam Experience - Replies (3)

Today I just passed the CCNA exam getting 916 which is roughly about 94.5%

I would say that knowing your sims are going to stand you in good stead (don`t forget the Nat sim in the hands on labs) I had the Nat sim , router settings ,frame-relay and switch simlet

There was also 3 ipv6 questions but 2 of them are covered on here and the other you can learn from reading up on ipv6

this site has been a great help in prep but I also completed the instructor run exploration course

stick at it and remember that if you are feeling the pressure on a question take a sit back for 5 seconds

oh and also you can use the ? in the exam simlets not like on here  ;D ;D

good luck everyone
