Hello Guys,

I just got my CCNP this month (last exam passed) and I'm slowly thinking about elaborate a study plan for my CCIE journey, probably next year. My gf and I just bought a house and we'll renovate it for the next months so it wouldn't be now.

However, I don't want to waste my time and I will first take the Wireshark cert (WCNA)

I followed a one week training and I found it very interresting, even if I don't use wireshark on my position and it's not realy demanded on the market, but it's a very interresting way to force yourself to deep understand how some protocol work.

Did some of you take this exam already ? I just orderd the official book

Any advises ?

    No, I haven't taken it, but I believe it would serve as a great cert to get. Udemy has a few courses on Wireshark too.

    That cert always looked interesting. I only know one person personally who has gotten it (Network Engineer at a previous company) and that person now goes out to the Wireshark conventions... Assuming he must be a fan of it and getting some use out of it.

    I took the exam about 3-4 years ago...it was probably the easiest exam I have ever taken. I believe my test was 50-60% T/F questions. The book is pretty large and you'll learn a lot of information...if you're wanting to knock out the exam quickly, just knockout the chapter summary.
