How do you use our new CCENT materials in order to ace your exam? Here is my recommended study approach…

Step 1: Read the CCENT – General articles at our blog site, blog.internetworkexpert.com. These articles include important information about the exam you are going to face.

Step 2: Enjoy the Class On Demand modules of CCENT. If you struggle with the review questions of a section, be sure to watch the Class On Demand lessons as many times as you need to in order to ensure retention of the materials.

Step 3: After each module is finished, return to blog.internetworkexpert.com and read any articles that are relevant to the section you just finished. For example, after finishing Module 1: The Operation of Data Networks, read all of the blog articles in CCENT – Operation of Networks.

Step 4: As you watch the Class On Demand modules and read the blog, record any questions at all you might have. Visit ieoc.com and post your questions for our online community.

Step 5: Once finished with all modules of the course, it is time to work through the Hands On Labs. Again, be sure to ask any questions you might have at ieoc.com.

Step 6: After finishing the Hands On Labs, move to the Practice Exams. You should take the Practice Exams as many times as it takes to pass them. You may need to revisit sections of the Class On Demand if you find you have weaknesses in certain areas. Questions? You know where to go – it is the ieoc.com!

Step 7: Schedule the exam and pass it!

    Hi there,

    I just finished going through all the modules but I have to say a few things so you can update them.

    In the slides, there are serious grammatical and spelling errors.

    The practice exams is incomplete for Practice exam 3.

    The answer to the question about what is the broadcast address for host in wrong . It should be, .99 .

    Network: 11000000.10101000.00000001.01100 000
    HostMin: 11000000.10101000.00000001.01100 001
    HostMax: 11000000.10101000.00000001.01100 110
    Broadcast: 11000000.10101000.00000001.01100 111

    And the correct answer is not even an option in your practice exam. Unless I read the question wrong, it should be corrected.

    And you missed on some serious points such as bus topology, atm cell byte size, SDM and subnetting without the binary math like Wendel Odum example would be really great here.

    Here is a link to the ICND 1 objectives:

    If you compare the syllabus to your slides, you are missing a few areas that you really need to hit on for this to be a complete online CCENT training. Of course I’ve read ICND 1 book already and CCNA flash cards.

    You guys have great content but I’m afraid it falls short of the Cisco requirements per the above link.

  2. Thanks for the feedback! We are updating the course this week, and will implement your suggestions.

    Thanks again!
