To help prepare for the current ICND1 (CCENT) exam, the following self-study Cisco Press book is recommended: CCENT/CCNA ICND1 100-105 Official Cert Guide
However, please note that it's highly recommended for candidates to use more than one learning source to help study and prepare. In addition to the Official Cert Guide, you may consider using additional learning material to broaden your understanding of the exam topics and help fill in the gaps. You should understand all of the ICND1 Exam Topics before attempting the exam.
For your reference, supplemental resources are available in the ICND1 Study Material page, where you will find a list of content organized by exam topics.
An on-demand e-learning course is also available and you can try it out for free via the trial version. For more information, visit: Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0 E-learning
In addition, here are some practice tools to consider - ICND1 Cisco Learning Labs, which are virtual practice labs that run on actual Cisco IOS software OR Packet Tracer, the network simulator that is available as a free download at the completion of an online self-paced course. See: Packet Tracer and Alternative Lab Solutions. Also, the ICND1 Certification Practice Exam gives you a significant amount of questions that are mapped to the exam learning objectives.
Lastly, I would recommend joining the CCENT/CCNA R&S Study Group for guidance on study tips/methods and ask questions to help with your learning experience.

Good luck on your studies and exam preparation!

Thank you Rigo. Another question if you don't mind. With the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0 E-learning course, are there labs included and are they the same one in the lab package, https://learningnetworkstore.cisco.com/cisco-learning-labs/for-icnd1-v3-0-60-hour-180-day-cll-icnd1-v3-0-60h180d-020210 ?
I used Packet Tracer at a Cisco Networking Academy course several years ago and found the labs to be a significant portion of the learning process.
Thanks again for your assistance.
I have the e-learning course 'Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices , Part 1' and this has a total of 32 Discovery Labs and 17 Graded Labs which is slightly more than the number of labs listed in the 'Learning Lab' course. The lab titles are pretty similar but I can not confirm whether the content is the same, similar or different....
I would try and direct your question at the sales people or if they cant answer it tryCertification & Communities Online Support using the following link - https://ciscocert.secure.force.com/english/MainPage
Hope this is of help to you.
