Just clarifying something, i have enough background and experience to quickly go over the subject matter on the ICND1 (640-822) and have a pretty good chance of passing it, which if i am to understand correctly would give me "CCENT" status.

The syllabus of the ICND2 (640-816) i have done in bits and pieces and i will need to do a far bit of learning, particularly the parts with regard to spanning tree etc

If i sit my ICND1 exam and pass tommorrow for example, i become a CCENT - if six months down the track i sit and pass the ICND2 exam, does that then qualify me as a CCNA ? (ie can the exams be taken a few months apart)

If someone could clarify this for me, it would be much appreciated

I have this problem too.

In short yes, you can split the exam times up.

I am unable to verify the exact length of the CCENT certification, but most of the non-IE certs are 3 yrs. You could take the ICND1 and be CCENT certified, and then in 2.5 yrs take the ICND2 (which will recertify your CCENT) and give you the CCNA.

Yes, as long as your ICND1 is still active and you pass the ICND2 exam you will become CCNA.
