Hey everyone! So, I’ve been studying on and off for the CCENT for a couple of years now. I think I’m at a point where after taking and failing the exam twice, I’m ready to schedule it a third time and shoot for the moon. I feel like I’ve spent almost enough time on an entry level cert and it’s frustrating to a point.
I’m thinking of giving myself ~17 weeks to really focus on my weak areas and do a lot of review. In general, is this too much time? Am I dragging it out too far? I’ve set it at 17 weeks so as to take the exam the first or second week of August. This would allow for work projects to be completed during work hours and give me week nights and week ends to study and review, with a little bit of breathing room as well given I’m taking a couple of trips over the summer.
I also want to finish this so I can move on to learning other higher level networking concepts and dig into an AWS cert.
I’m kind of anxious and hesitant to try again out of fear of failing a third time and taking an even bigger hit to my confidence…on an entry level cert.
