Passed the BCMSN today

Took the test this morning and passed. The test was a breeze compared the material on the BSCI. Had a tense moment in the testing center when the screen would not format correctly to allow me to view all of the material I needed to see. Had the coordinator come in, and she reboot the machine twice (as I held my breath, hoping I would not lose all of the progress I had made to that point.).
But it finally formatted correctly, and she said she had seen the problem before and had reported it.
On to the the ISCW after a week of vacation.

Bryant Advantage CCNP material.

I don't claim to be an expert, but I sure would like to become one someday.

    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    Congrats man! nice one.

    Can i ask how you practiced the L3 stuff? dont mean to seem stupid there icon_scratch.gif ......just i figured i would need a 3550 or rack rental at least? but if i can practice with the routers i have that would be great. Or even if you can pm that would be a big help.

    I was able to test with 2950 switches for most of the switching functions. I also have a packet tracer which was good for quick configuration, but is limited in some functionality.
    For HSRP, etc, I used the routers I had to configure,debug.
    I have approx 15 routers that I have obtained during my studies.
    I don't claim to be an expert, but I sure would like to become one someday.
