    Default ICND2 Failed BLAH

    Failed 731 out of 811.

    LAN Switching Tech. - 63%
    Routing Tech - 53%
    WAN Tech - 80%
    Infra. Services - 63%
    Infra. Maint - 56%

    I felt very confident. Been studying since May every single day. Labbing non-stop. The exam didn't seem hard, but I know I need to really dig deep into PPP/CHAP Auth.

    The labs seemed pretty easy, I thought. But then again, I must have been wrong because my score reflects it. I'm wondering if it is worth taking the composite instead of the ICND2 - at least half of the questions will be ICND1 related and other half ICND2? (thinking via text)

    Study Material:
    ICND2 Book Todd Lammle
    Packet Tracer Labs
    Packet Tracer UDEMY Lab course.
    SkillPort 200-105.
    Practice Exams on Skillport

    Complaints/Rants:

    Todd Lammle's book doesn't put much emphasis on much of anything. He just goes over everything and it's up to you to figure out what you need to concentrate on. You would think the Exam Essentials would be a good place to start, but this is not the case. Obviously I am not stating there should be answers in your face.

    Labs have emphasis on configuring and implementation. This is pointless. CCNA is troubleshooting inconsistencies with the not so obvious. I can spin up an OSPF, EIGRP, eBGP topology in a few minutes (CCNA Level) but it doesn't do any good when troubleshooting GRE tunnels, PPP etc.

    There are a couple of really really dumb questions. Almost warranting a comment. Nuff said.


    I'm salty because I failed. Don't beat me up too much.

    I am going to get back to the drawing board.

    Sorry man! I'm taking the 200-125 in 2 weeks. It sounds like you know where your weak spots are so just get back in there and knock it out!

    Its ok.... You will pass next time.

    LAN Switching Tech. - 63%
    Routing Tech - 53%
    WAN Tech - 80%
    Infra. Services - 63%
    Infra. Maint - 56%

    Use that to go back over what you scored low on. Focus on that and knock a home run next time!

    Thanks everyone. So I went through Todd's book and I found the spots where I messed up and I am going to reread it. I guess when reading the book, I must have went numb during and critical parts. I will go through the stuff I missed and try to take notes. I think I am all done for labbing; just need to sharpen my sword. Highlighter and another 10 days!

    I am just getting started myself and went with Odem's books as I heard he goes into a lot more detail. Might want to pick up his ICND2 book to go over the parts you are week at.

    I went ahead and bought the ICND2 voucher again. I'm not going to take the suckers way out because then I feel like I gave up and that's a bad habit to start. I also bought Pearson's and Cisco's approved practice exams and ugh, it has been kicking my ass. The labs only give you a few commands for each scenario, and you can't abbreviate. Also, if the command doesn't relate to the scenario, it doesn't work. And they don't let you use "sh run" so I'm trying to remember commands. I guess it is helpful, but frustrating since I depend on "?" and "tab."
