Undecided? Get Started and Defer Your Choice

The only dilemma: Buy study tools now for ICND1 only, or for CCNA?

CCNA Certification!

Pass ICND2 200-105 Exam

CCENT Certification!

Pass ICND1 100-105 Exam

Go for CCENT, and Then Decide

The Big Issue: When to Buy Products

  • Content-wise, CCNA = ICND1 + ICND2
  • Cisco Press CCNA R&S products often include:
    • An ICND1 Product
    • An ICND2 Product
    • A CCNA Product
  • A CCNA Product is Equal to the Combined ICND1 and ICND2 Products
  • A CCNA product costs less than the Combined ICND1 and ICND2 products

Purchase Comparison:
Decide to Stop at CCENT

  • $30: Buy only the ICND1 Cert Guide, but nothing left to buy
  • $45: Buy the CCNA Cert Library up front, spent $15 too much

Purchase Comparison:
Decide to Also Get CCNA

  • $60: Buy the ICND1 Cert Guide, later buy the ICND2 Cert Guide
  • $45: Buy the CCNA Cert Library up front, saved $15

Examples use typical US retail prices: $30 each for ICND1 and ICND2 Cert Guides, $45 for CCNA Cert Library.
