Take as many practice tests as possible. The test is predictive so if you are weak on a certain area it will give you more questions in that area than others. The CCNA is pretty easy just make sure you understand subnetting as this is usually the hardest part for test takers. I also suggest going through brain dumps (can't remember the exact website) and reviewing the latest dumps for the most up to date questions.

Study.
Read Todd Lammle's book...the only important part is his subnetting portion.
To ensure passing...

www.testking.com or pass4sure.com or actualtests.com

There is a forum out there that hosts that stuff for free too. Seriously though, you should be able to get any old study guide, study for 2 weeks and pass.

i did the CCNA combined test.. the less tests i have to take the better. Know access lists, and how to poke around a router to find basic shit like routes, gateways, etc.
it really wasnt that hard.

I'm going to take the combined CCNA if i fail the ICND test. I've already passed the first half that delt with access lists, subnetting and stuff. This one covers vlsm, ospf, frame relay, and switching (stp,vtp, and vlans). I go today at 2:30. Test anxity is a mofo!

Post up how ya did.

I've failed 2 exams out of the 12 or so I've taken. CCDA (the hardest test I've ever taken, to include QoS) and the Remote Access part of the CCNP track.

THANKFULLY for me I've failed both those tests by assuming I did not need to study X thing all that hard. Still though, with CCDA after studying until my eyes bled I only passed it by as much as I failed it. Around 9 points. (Got a 1000/1000 2nd time around on Remote Access) haha I guess my point is, just really take note of what tripped ya up if ya fail.

However, I'm pretty certain you're going to post up a passing test.

I need to go take the ccna exam. I had to do a light icnd test for some inhouse training at work. Is ccna worth it being in IT Risk Management with a CISSP already?

Short answer is no. You'd be more interested in the security track.
