Got that CCNA again...finally

Hey folks,

I'm glad to say I just passed the Cisco CCNA 200-125 exam. The last time I held the CCNA certification was after passing the ICND1 640-822 and ICND2 640-816 exams way back in September of 2013.

Just to recap:
I started dabbling in other technologies after that first CCNA then started my Networking career in 2014 and was constantly in and out of certification studies.

Anyway started to get back to focus solely on networking technologies and Cisco again in 2016 to try to renew CCNA. I attempted the CCNP ROUTE exam, failed, and I did not recertify. Got into VMware, and went up to VCP5-DCV. I starting learning and implementing alot of Fortinet Firewalls as well (didn't go for certs), but now back to the Cisco route and switch track.

I meant to take this exam back in September, but then hurricanes Irma and Maria demolished us here in Puerto Rico, so couldn't take the test up until today.

I'm back at it and I'm going to continue on to CCNP Route next. I hope to contribute more to the forum as my studies move along, maybe even create a thread on the CCNP forum, I know many people including myself enjoy those threads.


Good luck to all of you on your studies and happy labbing!!

    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.

    Congrats! I found CCNA Security to be an easy one to add on top of CCNA R&S when it comes time to renew.
    Up next: On Break, but then maybe CCNA DC, CCNP DC, CISM, AWS SysOps Administrator

    So I've heard. I actually thought about doing that before going for the CCNP ROUTE exam. Can't remember why I decided against it, maybe because I was just more excited for the ROUTE material.
