According to Cisco Press, if your ICND book is printing 7 or greater, you
have up to date information for the exam.  If not, you can go to their
website and download the updated Appendix F and a replacement chapter 6 for
OSPF / EIGRP information.  The website also has an updated test engine that
is closer to the real exam.

I took the exams separately and found the INTRO exam a bit challenging, but
easily achievable with the information from the Cisco Press book (I scored
930).  The ICND exam was more difficult and the Cisco Press book did not
cover all the material on the exam, causing me to fail on my first attempt
with a score of 837 - you need 849 to pass.  My ICND book is printing number
3, November 2003 and I found out about the website updates after taking the
exam.  If I had to do it over again, I would take the single CCNA exam.

If this is your first Cisco exam experience, or if you have taken Microsoft
exams in the past be warned - Cisco exams are sneaky and more difficult by
design.  Make sure you FULLY read every question and know exactly what it is
asking.

Anybody else want to add advice / experiences?

Re: CCNA test & Cisco Press books


How can I identify what printing are my  books?  INTRO and ICND? theyr
both Feb 2004.

This is my first Cisco Experience. I have been practicing with BOSON
Tests but they are very far from reality.

I have tried the Cisco Prep center and still have problems with in
depth concepts.

Thank you for your advice.

Any other suggestions?
