Didn't think I made it when I pressed end exam. But I'm happy I was wrong.
Studied using Boson exams. First try I had like 300 score but didn't care because I use their explanations for studying. I recommend their product because it is quite close to the exam questions.
Sometimes Boson's explanations had me curious for a bit more details though. I recommend filling those gaps with the actual online Cisco documentation.
The last day before the exam I studied using a certain site which has questions even closer to the actual exam ;)
Didn't practice any labs except Boson's, but I have a few months of experience managing a nation-wide Cisco network. I think I got 100% on the 3 labs I encountered on the exam.
All-in-all it took me about a month of studying 1 hour a day on average.
Started studying for Route today. I installed GNS3 for some actual labbing this time, and just purchased Boson's Route course.
Oh and shout-out to you guys here at r/CCNP , everytime before studying I gave this sub a quick glance and it got me focused somehow.
Mostly used netacad for studying both theory and simlets. Have to say quite a few details are missing in that learning material. But it has some nice packet tracer sims.
Some CBTNuggets and udemy vids helped aswell for refreshing topics the days before the exam.
Haven't bought the Boson practice tests yet but I think I might need to since I think ICND2 might be a bit harder.
Shoutout to this subreddit for making me feel part of a clan of warriors all battling against the cisco monster exams :)
