First and foremost I want to state that I am currently a Network Administrator and previously I worked as a Network Engineer. I finally decided to attempt the exam due to the fact that my co-workers were constantly progressing themselves learning new things. The pool of staff is either CCNA or CCNP certified. So it motivated me to better myself and none the less I passed.

Now despite being in the field for a few years i found myself still having to study for the exam and throughout the process i did learn a lot of new things. The duration of study took a little less then 2 months.

Whelp just thought I announce this and now I am off to study for ICND2.

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    Yeah, they gave me a few pointers. Getting certified was definitely worth it. It gets a little awkward when you tell people you do not have any cisco certifications. People tend to question your knowledge...
