ICND1 Passed 978/832

I did not expect to score as well as I did since some of the questions felt as if more than one answer was correct, but I went with my gut and it paid off!

Resources Used

Chris Bryant
Chris is a phenomenal teacher and I will be using his videos again for ICND2, every word he says somehow sticks with me, how does he do it?!?!

CBT Nuggets
CBT Nuggets provides a great overview, but I feel as if the videos didn't go as in depth as Chris Bryant's, still a great resource to supplement reading.

I read maybe 6 chapters from the Odom book after identifying my weak spots. I later attempted all of the DIKTA questions and missed around 5 of them, so I read the chapters where I missed those questions.

Ranet Labs
Useful for helping commands stick.

Duck Labs
These can be found in the Discord, they focus on troubleshooting instead of configuration alone, which is what I felt the Ranet labs were lacking.

Personal Labs
I made my own labs, I'd just randomly build huge networks and apply what I knew to the networks using either Packet Tracer or GNS3.

Boson ExSim
This was definitely one of the most valuable resources, the questions prepare you very well for the actual exam, highly recommended.

I Googled a lot of questions I had.

Duck, Duck, Goose: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Waterfowl, Both Farmed and Wild
A phenomenal book, shoutout to Eaz in the Discord for the recommendation!

Thank you! I scored a 931 on my first Boson exam which gave me a huge confidence boost since people often say the Boson exams are harder than the real thing, and I agree, it also helped a ton with filling in specific details I didn't know thanks to the well-written explanations. With that being said, I will be purchasing ExSim for ICND2 as well when the time comes, keep up the great work!
