Passed SY0-401 today. Just a little background on me. I passed the old SY0-301 in January 2012. I let it lapse. This exam was more in depth to me. The sims were a little tricky too.

I may try to knock out CCNP Switch just to get my CCNA R&S to extend. Then push on to a higher level security cert.

    Congrats! So I have heard the 401 is a more of a beast.

    I used the Darril Gibson book and Skillport. 401 is a bit of a beast compared to 301.
