CCNA ICND Exam Certification Guide is a best-of-breed Cisco(r) exam study guide that has been completely updated to focus specifically on the objectives for the new CCNA ICND exam. Senior instructor and best-selling author Wendell Odom shares preparation hints and test-taking tips to help you identify areas of weakness and improve both your conceptual and hands-on knowledge. This new edition is organized in a modular fashion, segmenting larger chapters into smaller, more easily digestible components. Material is presented in a concise manner, focusing on increasing your retention of exam topics.

CCNA ICND Exam Certification Guide presents you with an organized test preparation routine through the use of proven series elements and techniques. "Do I Know This Already?" quizzes open each chapter and allow you to decide how much time you need to spend on each section. Chapter subject lists and Foundation Summary tables make referencing easy and give you a quick refresher whenever you need it. Challenging chapter-ending review questions help you assess your knowledge and reinforce key concepts. Scenario-based exercises help you think about exam objectives in real-world situations, thus increasing recall during exam time. The companion CD-ROM contains a powerful new testing engine that allows you to focus on individual topic areas or take complete, timed exams from ICND and unified CCNA test banks. The assessment engine also tracks your performance and provides feedback on a module-by-module basis, presenting question-by-question remediation to the text and laying out a complete study plan for review. The CD-ROM also includes a wealth of hands-on practice exercises and a copy of the Boson NetSim(tm) for CCNA ICND, Learning Edition, network simulation software that allows you to practice your hands-on skills in a virtual lab environment that has been customized for the labs in the book.

Well-regarded for its level of detail, assessment features, and challenging review questions and hands-on exercises, this book helps you master the concepts and techniques that will enable you to succeed on the exam the first time.

CCNA ICND Exam Certification Guide is part of a recommended study program from Cisco Systems(r) that includes simulation and hands-on training from authorized Cisco Learning Partners and self-study products from Cisco Press.
