Very nice. Congrats! The skin of your teeth provides a greater margin if you forsake brushing them in lieu of study time, I find. :D

Congrats! I'm currently in the middle of Odom's book for the ICND2 and am wondering aside from the NetSim labs I have, flashcards, and videos if there was any more I should do in order to prepare. The only thing I don't enjoy about Odom's book is it gets so technical and so dry that sometimes it can be extremely hard to remember everything. Especially after a full 28 chapters of content. Any advice? I'm to sit on the exam in about three weeks.

Yeah, Odom's book gets WAY to technical with stuff that is not even in the scope of CCNA. That is why I loved Lammles book so much. To be honest, I would use Lammle instead. Odom's book is very hard to understand at times.

I agree that he goes off on tangents for things way beyond what I would consider to be the scope of the exam involved, and while it is great to learn about everything going on under the hood, he gets way too involved and presents so much information that it becomes hard to sift through. I would love to use Lammle's book, unfortunately though I was given Odom's to study and my job is expecting me to take my exam the first week of October, so I don't have much time to wrap up Odom's book and finish studying. I will definitely look into his books for future reference though, thank you!

Odom's book is very good, I would say it definitely goes over all the objectives. The thing is, there is so much that is not on the exam that he covers. It can be counter productive. I still read most of his ICND2 topics. It also might be unwise to use so many sources because it can get confusing. I used CBTNuggets/Odom/Lammlee for ICND2.

Nice work, think I'm going to re-study CCNA after my next two MS exams. I originally covered Richard Deals's book about five years ago but never took the exam.
