You should know the Boson software is programmed so much better than the Pearson/Cisco version.

I was sorta surprised Cisco lets there name be put on a product that was tbh, so bland and somewhat buggy!

I was afraid the software was gonna crap out on me.

The Pearson version has worked well on multiple computers for me, but I haven't really gotten into studying deeply enough to know any better.

Can you expand on how the Boson software is better?

[–]OhComeOnKennyMayne[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

It worked fine, but it was just slow and sorta buggy.

It entirely could have been the computer I was on, but still. I was more impressed with the visuals of Boson.

Boson imo, was harder than the actual test too.

IF you get it, save one of the FOUR tests boson gives you until you're ready for the actual exam. Then, take that one and for EVERY question you get wrong, read all the answers as to why they were wrong. Hell, I read every question, for all four tests and the explanations as to why they were wrong.

Yep, this is exactly the way it should be done - save one exam for your final assessment to see if you're ready, and read EVERY explanation, even for the questions you can answer correctly.

Congrats, what were you scoring on the boson exams? :)

[–]OhComeOnKennyMayne[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Constantly FAILING but right around 81%

[–]Naksoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah nice, 81% is still pretty good for boson xD

[–]BosonMichaelSenior Content Developer, Boson Software 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Thanks for the praise, and I'm glad we could help. :)

I'm going the full KIT route for ICND2, fyi!

Great product, very reliable.

[–]BosonMichaelSenior Content Developer, Boson Software 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awesome, thanks!

[–]rrtorres1991CCENT 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Congrats! Are you going for ICND2?

[–]OhComeOnKennyMayne[S] 7 points8 points  (1 child)


Probably do that, and then do CCNA Security.

[–]modsega 2 points3 points  (0 children)

hardcore bro

[–]kapache33 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's no such thing as overkill, but over prepare. I bet the same equipment will help you for the ICND2 and possibly CCNP. Good investment.

So youre saying boson is totally worth it?

[–]DingleTheDongle 0 points1 point  (4 children)

how much hex was involved in icnd1?

[–]OhComeOnKennyMayne[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I'm not comfortable answering SPECIFIC questions about the test. Sorry!

Just, study what is on the guide and you''ll be good.

[–]DingleTheDongle 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Lol, I meant like should I learn to do complex maths on it or should I just get comfortable with translating from one base to another

[–]OhComeOnKennyMayne[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Oh sorry, but yeah, just get comfy with it.

At most 2 digits, tbh.
