Can I take the ICND2 before ICND1?

Unanswered Question
Mar 11th, 2008

I know this sounds like a stupid question but here's the story;

Several days ago I scheduled the 642-802 exam for this Friday (three days from now). I now realize that I'm not nearly as prepared as I thought I was so I'm thinking of taking the two ICND exams to obtain my CCNA.

I've checked the links on Career Certifications as well as Cisco PEC and I think the ICND2 exam should be easier to pass. Which brings me to my question.

Any information is appreciated,


I have this problem too.

Apparently Not:

This is from CiscoCert Customer Help:

Is a passing score on the ICND1 640-821 exam a prerequisite for ICND2 640-816?


No. You are not required to pass ICND1 to take ICND2. However, performance in the ICND2 course depends on the knowledge and skills taught in ICND1.
