Senior instructor and best-selling author Wendell Odom shares preparation hints and test-taking tips to help you identify areas of weakness and improve both your conceptual and hands-on knowledge. This new edition is organized in a modular fashion, segmenting larger chapters into smaller, more easily digestible components. Material is presented in a concise manner, focusing on increasing your retention of exam topics.

CCNA ICND Exam Certification Guide presents you with an organized test preparation routine through the use of proven series elements and techniques. “Do I Know This Already?” quizzes open each chapter and allow you to decide how much time you need to spend on each section. Chapter subject lists and Foundation Summary tables make referencing easy and give you a quick refresher whenever you need it. Challenging chapter-ending review questions help you assess your knowledge and reinforce key concepts. Scenario-based exercises help you think about exam objectives in real-world situations, thus increasing recall during exam time.

The companion CD-ROM contains a powerful new testing engine that allows you to focus on individual topic areas or take complete, timed exams from ICND and unified CCNA test banks. The assessment engine also tracks your performance and provides feedback on a module-by-module basis, presenting question-by-question remediation to the text and laying out a complete study plan for review. The CD-ROM also includes a wealth of hands-on practice exercises and a copy of the Boson NetSim™ for CCNA ICND, Learning Edition, network simulation software that allows you to practice your hands-on skills in a virtual lab environment that has been customized for the labs in the book. The supporting website keeps you fully informed of any exam changes.

Well-regarded for its level of detail, assessment features, and challenging review questions and hands-on exercises, this book helps you master the concepts and techniques that will enable you to succeed on the exam the first time.

CCNA ICND Exam Certification Guide Enhancements
Updated Chapter 6: OSPF and EIGRP Concepts and Configuration (PDF)
Author Wendell Odom has added coverage of these topics to match the degree of depth addressed on the exams.
New Appendix F: CCNA ICND Exam Updates (PDF)
This document provides new materials clarifying and expanding upon topics that give readers the most problems when taking the exams.

Updated Test Engine/CD-ROM Patch

An additional 100+ CCNA practice questions follow a more challenging, interpretive multiple-choice format to make the practice test more like the real exam.

The patch will update the content on the CCNA ICND Exam Certification Guide CD-ROM test engine and NetSIM for CCNA, Learning Edition to the most current version of the software. If your CD-ROM is labeled version 1.7, there is no need to download this patch; you have the most up-to-date version.

For the test engine patch to take effect, you must have the previous version of the software installed on your computer. The patch will update this software first, and it will then attempt to update the NetSim software. If the NetSim software is not installed, you will receive a message stating that you have to have this software installed for the patch to be applied. This will not impact the installation of the test engine patch. If you are only interested in updating the NetSim software that came on your CD-ROM, you will still need to have the test engine software installed for the NetSim patch to take effect.

ICND Patch [Please note: This file is 77 MB and takes approximately 8 1/2 minutes to download when using a T1 connection.]

Please contact information@ciscopress.com with any questions about the patch.

CD-ROM fixes

The 6th printing of CCNA ICND Exam Certification Guide has a known problem with the CD-ROM in a limited number of copies that were shipped from the Cisco Press warehouse. Though labeled as CCNA ICND version 1.5, the content on the CD-ROM is actually that of the CCNA INTRO Exam Certification Guide. If you have a CD-ROM labeled as CCNA ICND version 1.5 for which the content is actually CCNA INTRO, please contact Cisco Press at information@ciscopress.com to request a free replacement.
