31 Days Before Your CCENT Certification

 

Scott Bennett

 

A day-by-day ICND1 exam review guide for the

CCNA Discovery student

 

After you complete the first two courses of the CCNA® Discovery version 4 curriculum in a Cisco® Networking Academy®, you are ready to officially demonstrate that knowledge by getting CCENT™ (Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician) certified.

 

The CCENT is a new entry-level certification that validates to a potential employer the practical skills you learned in these courses, which are required for entry-level network support positions.

 

31 Days Before Your CCENT Certification offers you a personable and practical way to understand the certification process and commit to taking the 640-822 ICND1 certification exam while the course material is fresh in your mind. Sign up for the ICND1 exam and use the book’s day-by-day guide and checklist to organize, prepare, and review. Each day in this guide breaks down an exam topic into a manageable bit of information to review using short summaries from relevant parts of the CCNA Discovery courses.

 

The features of the book empower you to fit exam preparation into a busy schedule:

 

  • Visual calendar summarizing each day’s study topic
  • Checklist providing advice for preparation activities leading up to the exam
  • Description of the 640-822 ICND1 exam and how to sign up for it, including how to use a course voucher
  • Strategies to be mentally, organizationally, and physically prepared for exam day
  • Conversational tone, which makes your study time more enjoyable

 

CCENT certification is open to everyone, but this book is specifically designed to prepare the Cisco Networking Academy CCNA Discovery student for the exam.

  • A way to review key points of the Networking Academy information with a specific focus on CCENT objectives
  • The only CCENT exam preparation resource to address a student CCENT exam readiness gap
This book is intended for the student who will soon complete the first two courses in Cisco Networking Academy CCNA Discovery curriculum and will be ready to test for their CCENT Certification. The book will include: — Visual calendar summarizing each day — Checklist for the CCENT exam providing advice for activities leading up to the exam — Description of the CCENT Exam and how to sign up for the exam including how to use a voucher — Description of exam day and important strategies to be mentally, organizationally, and physically prepared for the exam The daily sections of the book will be organized around the CCENT objectives, yet explained using information summarized from the Academy Curriculum courses (Networking for Home and Small Business, and Working at a Small-to-Medium Business or ISP). Each day focuses around the knowledge needed to accomplish the objective. These sections will not be comprehensive, but rather provide a good key CCENT exam related points summary for review. The success and uniqueness of this book lies in the fact that it is a link between the Cisco Academy Curriculum and the actual CCENT objectives.
