Unanswered Question
Jul 12th, 2009

What would you all recommend - the 640-802 or the Dual exam method? I am a Cisco noob but I do have years of experience working with general networking concepts. Thanks in advance!!

I have this problem too.

I, like yourself, have years of networking background behind me (not particularly on Cisco equipment) but still have managed to fail the single exam twice.

I just passed the CCENT exam today and will start hitting the ICND2 material after a few days' break.

Personally, I've found a lot of discrepancy in the content of the various ICND1/ICND2/CCNA texts. Buy a CCNA book and the author will tell you it also covers CCENT content - but won't tell you what content is necessarily what.

Obviously, I preferred to go the 2 exam route. It's twice as expensive - unless you fail the all-in-one exam.

Correction - the all-in-one exam is $250, same as taking the 2 exam ICND1 and ICND2 track.
