Well two years after first passing my ICND1 exam I have finally found the time to study for the ICND2 exam and as I passed I am now very happy Cisco CCNA certified IT Professional. After working with Microsoft technologies for so long I felt it necessary to branch out and get some experience working with other vendors products and I am now certified in two of the other major players Citrix and Cisco.
For study material I used the excellent CBTNuggets and the CCNA Study Guide book from Todd Lammle. Both are highly recommended and gave me the information I needed to pass and to feel confident about working with Cisco routers and switches in any size network.
For those of you still studying for CCNA dont give up its definitely worth the effort!
