CCENT Odom book

At the end of the book it says that:

Now that you have finished the bulk of this book, you could register for your Cisco ICDN1, ICDN2 or CCNA R&S exam.

I am confused. The whole book just prepares you for ICDN1 exam right? or does it prepare you for the whole CCNA Routing and Switching exam?

You will need to provide more information on what book you're talking about.

ICND1 is 100-105. ICND2 is 200-105. The CCNA composite exam is 200-125, which is both ICND1 and ICND2 in one exam. You could still register for the ICND1 exam while reading/learning the ICND2 textbook. It would be unwise to schedule the ICND2 exam when you only finished the ICND1 book though. If you are going for the CCNA, you will be reading both books regardless.

It litereally says CCNA ICDN1 100-105

Your textbook is only for ICND1. I advise you to take and pass ICND1 then ICND2, instead of the more expensive and difficult CCNA composite 200-125. Two exams = more questions but lower chance of failing. You would only save yourself like $5 USD by taking the composite which isn't much of a monetary difference.

Edit: I noticed that you misspelled the acronym ICND 4 times now. It's Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices. ICND. When you go to register for the exam on PearsonVUE, you will not see ICDN in the search results. Just FYI.

Ah thanks, still don't know why they put that info in that book if you can only take ICND1.

Both of Odom's book contain an identical final chapter on exam prep, strategy, etc. It probably just got copied verbatim into each volume and that little bit regarding ICND2/composite probably just got missed in editing for the ICND1 book.

Thanks for explaining :)

I'm guessing it's for the folks going for the composite exam 200-125. They would need both Odom books to pass the exam.

I came from the era of one exam = one certification ala Security+ so certs like CCNP and MCSA with multiple exams confused me at first.

Most people buy both books in a bundle as it's cheaper than buying individually. Definitely misleading, just a random thought on why the book says this

Thanks, I was a bit confused at first.
