The Cisco CCENT ICND1 100-105 Program

This comprehensive program brings Cisco CCENT exam topics to life through the use of real-world demonstrations, animations, live instruction, and configurations, making learning these foundational networking topics easy and fun. From the start, the content walks through the full range of topics on the CCENT ICND1 100-105 exam, including fundamentals of networking, LAN switching, IP routing, network services, and network management. This unique product contains multiple types of video presentations, including live instructor white-boarding, real-world demonstrations, animations of network activity, dynamic Key-note presentations, doodle videos, and hands-on router and switch CLI configuration and troubleshooting in real lab environments, enabling Learners to understand both the concepts and the hands-on application.

Further, this program explores essential information about the exam, such as what to do if you get stuck on a question, what to expect in the testing facility, and how to manage your time. Then the course dives into helping Learners preemptively learn about common misunderstandings people have about the exam and focuses on commonplace mistakes that people make. Finally, this content will take a deep dive into the types of questions to be encountered for each domain in the exam. In this section, Learners will have the opportunity to assess sample questions and see firsthand how the author solves each one while detailing why the right answer is correct and how to avoid pitfalls. This program is meant to help Learners prepare for the exam and identify areas of weakness, while improving your conceptual knowledge and hands-on skills.
