If I were to study the ICND2 book, Can I pass the 640-802 CCNA?

I have this problem too.

CCNA 640-802 contains subject matter from both ICND1 and ICND2, so probably not.

To Clarify:

CCENT is from passing the INCD1 exam. CCNA is obtained in one of two possible ways: You can take and pass the CCNA exam, or you can take and pass BOTH the ICND1 and ICND2 exams.

I took the ICND1 and ICND2 courses. I passed the ICND1 exam. I am now studying for the ICND2 exam, and am finding that the information taught in the classes (and the info in the book they gave us in class) will NOT be enough to expect to pass the exam. The level of detail isn't enough.

I took the ICND2 test, but wasn't able to finish due to an interruption in the test (facility issue). I saw that the questions look for details that aren't in the book. The way to prepare for these is to do the labs, find other sources of info on these topics, etc. I saw that there were detailed questions on VLANs, Implementing WANs, Frame Relay, STP, IP management (VLSM, IPv6, masks & wildcards, etc.). Also, there were sims which will require you to be able to find details, and to configure services & protocols (like VLANs, STP, Routing Protocols, Frame Relay, etc.)

PacketLife.net has some really good information, and a lab system to use (you have to register and play by the rules). Also, FreeCCNAWorkbook.com has some great study material, and tons of practice labs (designed for GNS3, but can be adapted to "real" lab...).

Hope it help. Good Luck!
