I got my CCNA almost a year ago and had grand plans to take the CCNA Security right away, but then I got this super demanding job with no work / life balance and moved twice so everything got moved to the back burner. I finally finished preparing with Pluralsight, CBT Nuggets, lots of labbing in GNS3, the OCG, and Boson practice tests. I tend to over prepare so I eventually have to just schedule the test and go for it. Well today was the day and I passed!
It took a lot longer than I wanted but I'm happy to have it behind me. Next stop is the CISSP! In my new job I've sort of become the expert with our Cisco UCS so I may tackle the CCNA Data Center as well in the future.
Up next: On Break, but then maybe CCNA DC, CCNP DC, CISM, AWS SysOps Administrator
