Week One Study Plan


  • Follow along with the videos for Week 1 & 2, using Cisco Packet Tracer.
  • Use what I create in Packet Tracer as the blueprint to develop an ICND1 environment using my physical home lab.

To Accomplish:

  • A fast-paced, in-depth review of what I learned when preparing for the ICND1 exam.
  • Get my physical equipment setup for ICND2 studies.

Notes to Self:

  • Answer the quiz questions at the end of the videos. That way, I have to recall the info I just watched, instead of answering the questions as things are said.
  • Use Notepad to keep track of the various commands entered for the different devices as I watch the video. I can use this to cross-check my setup in Packet Tracer.
  • Based on the videos and commands, I keep track of in Notepad – create a list of objectives/tasks I need to complete to create the ICND1 environment.
    • That way, I can configure the various devices on my own versus following along and typing in commands as they get displayed in the videos.
    • The goal is to be able to configure devices from muscle memory without any aids.
