Jncip-sec pass!!!!

took the exam this afternoon. I'd say I studied enough but could've focused on some exam topics in more detail. I actually went in to this exam with another voucher available if I failed. So this was my "lets see how I'm coming along" attempt; which was a first. I was planning on taking it 3 weeks later, but I figured why not try now and see how I do. Did well enough, and I am absolutely elated. I was caught off guard because there were some topics that did not appear to be in the objectives. My experience in the field helped me answer most of those questions, while the others I took an educated guess.

I have been studying for this thing for 6 months. Heavy studying for the last 2. Other than some of the items that I wasn't expecting to see, the exam was fair overall. I used the official juniper courseware and the O'Reilly book, along with my experience in the field. I also used my lab and tried to mock up all the scenarios.

I am so glad this is done. I will either try for the JNCIS-ENT, or just take the rest of the year off studying. I have to get some personal projects/goals taken care of now. Talk about a great birthday present icon_cool.gif

WOOT!

    Way too go man!! Definitely deserve a break, but I kinda agree with Murph81 there ;) The level of prep you have been documenting makes me think you'd be pretty close to attempting the lab. Seriously. But anyhoo, enjoy the feeling, it's quite the accomplishment!!

    Thank you everyone for the kind words!

    @aldur and @Murph81, If I had a higher passing score, I'd agree with you :). I'm tempted to just start building my study guide or researching any study guide companies have already made. However, I feel like if I don't take a break and get my personal goals going, I will burn out. Got some big things planned for the family, so I have to shift focus to that.
