Passed today with 948.
Having access to real equipment helped, sure, but the single best resource I used was the official CCENT/CCNA ICND1 book by Wendell Odom.
I studied and practiced alot before the test, the last week before the test, I could not find the drive to put the hours in, I'm glad that didn't have a negative effect.
The test itself was cake, only one question I didn't really understand. The hardest part was keeping focused before and during the test.
I guess the best thing about passing and scoring well is knowing your self-study methods are working, thats a relief, 'cos you don't *really* know, until you take the test.
Thanks to all those who've shared their experiences in these forms good and bad.
ICND2 in about 4-6 weeks!
