ICND1 Practice Labs

posted in Education, Training
by on February 2nd, 2011 tags: , , , ,

I’ve created a handful of configuration and troubleshooting labs to help CCENT candidates refine their skills in preparation for exam day. These labs cover a good portion of the core ICND1 IOS fundamentals and require a thorough understanding of the Cisco IOS to complete.  Some labs do present unexpected obstacles not covered within the lab objectives to help demonstrate specific networking theory under normal conditions.

All routers that do not require configuration changes are locked.  Some labs may also only allow for Telnet or SSH connections.  It’s up to you to configure each device as you would remotely in the field or on the exam to complete each of the lab objectives.  These labs can get a little tricky and were designed to give capable ICND1 candidates with reasonable IOS experience a headache, so be patient.  When finished with a lab, you may compare your results with the provided answer sheet.  Have fun!

I’ve decided to publish my notes taken while studying for the Cisco TSHOOT 642-902 exam. I’ll try to publish a new post every few days covering a chapter or 2 from the CiscoPress Official Certification Guide. I am also using the CiscoPress Cert Kit and the Cisco E-Learning CD procured from the Global Knowledge TSHOOT class.

As many of you may remember, we ran a giveaway in February that was sponsored by CiscoPress. They provided their new Cert Kits as the prizes and they also sent me a set to use and review. If you’ve been following my recert progress, you know that I recently passed the CCNA again and have started studying for the SWITCH exam so I am finally getting around to reviewing the first of the Cert Kits.

The CCNP SWITCH kit package contains:
