    Just done today semester one exam got my a$$ handed to me with just over 60% score ,how likely im to get screwed when doing routing protocols.Since i lack any intelligence in understanding vlsm ipv6,switch functions,and even random class c subneting questions at this point.Does it come to a point where one comes to revisit same terms or im i in a boat just gonna slowly sink downwards as progressing further ?

    Did you take ICND1 or the whole composite test?

    You shouldn't be so hard on yourself because of what happened. Try to think about this as a learning opportunity. At first, I was in for a rude awakening when I saw my score and I was downright disappointed and feeling down that first day, but eventually I started feeling better about going through my weakest areas and wanting to try again. Cisco makes their exams difficult for a reason and looking at it that way, it will make getting them more of a meaningful achievement.

    doing just part time course in college for ccna,that was first netacad semester exam,covering basics.So sort of bumped up about scoring so low,as ipv6 and subneting didnt sink it at all besides subneting class c and some basic vlsm.
    To say the least with speed course is going and amounts to read,every time i am left with more questions then answers doing chapters.And difficulty seems to increase twin fold every time.

    Only regret i have that didnt do proper look into course material and what depth it goes into/amount of time needed before starting it.thus while did binary and some classes on youtube before starting but when got 1000+ pages book and equipment that that seen in couple servers rooms and never thought as it much as being something more like hub,its like getting bricked you get labs assignments most times with everything put down and just to practice commands,yet if someone asked whats the difference between one router or another/switch answer would be maybe more interfaces on one then another.

    To date: OSPF is far and away the hardest topic for me. I'm a little surprised that it's not on the vote. Okay, I can see that 'Routing Protocols' are, but RIP is a walk in the park when compared to OSPF (I.M.H.O).

    Spanning Tree was one of my weakest areas followed by Frame Relay.

    IPv6 and all associated protocols and 'ng' (OSPFv3, RIPng...etc) + all changes which came around ithas always been a type.

    In the old program CCNAv2, there was a section on fine tunning OSPF (timers, redistribution, LSAs)

    Troubleshooting layer 2 problems....

    From ICND2 v3 I've found PPPoE and SNMP config to be the hardest to absorb. I've gone through the offical cert guide twice now and I'm comfortable with everything but I've got a bit more work to do before I can configure and troubleshoot those topics without any help.

    I'm glad I don't need to do frame relay however I still see it in the CCNP exam topics.
