BCMSN Friday 12/12 **PASSED**

Hey guys, so I'm in my final review for the BCMSN as I have it set for 11am on Friday and was wondering if anyone had any final review pointers?

For study material I have read the Cisco Press cert guide, watched the CBT Nuggets videos, and have been reviewing Chris Bryants study guide. I have been studying on and off for the past 6 months but really focused over the past 2.

Here is what I have planned/been doing as part of my final review:
Monday: Went over Wireless chapters in cert guide again
Tuesday: Went thru the chapter summaries and questions in the cert guide
Wednesday: Final Lab time: going to focus on HSRP/VRRP/GLBP, VACLs, and Private Vlans as these are the topics I have little experience with.
Thursday: Go over Bryants study guides again
Friday: Wake up early, eat some breakfast and pass the exam =)

Any thoughts/suggestions regarding my final review?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.

    I'm feeling pretty good about my spanning tree, I really focused on stp during my study as I'm getting ready to add a couple of switches to our single switch network at work.

    I'll probably add MST to my lab review tonight just to be safe as well.

    I'd read up on wireless from sources other then the cert guide. I'm not sure about the Bryant material, but I know you can find all the information you need in the Docs.

    Good luck!

    They should outlaw bars within 1000 yards of testing centers..... so many people get distracted by their celebrations (or drowning their sorrows) that they don't post their results in a timely manner.


    Hope it's a celebrations!

    HAHA sorry guys got called into work on my way home from the test center.... Good news though passed with a 920. I got beat up a bit on wireless, and a couple of unexpected voice questions, but was pretty happy with the outcome. Also my BSCI books arrived yesterday, so perfect timing :D

    Some pointers for others, Cisco Press exam cert guide is not enough, between that and the Bryant BCMSN study guide I felt put me in a good position....the videos help as a quick brush over as well. Everyone talks about wireless being a killer, but honestly I felt Bryants study guide covered pretty much everything, I was just nervous and knew as soon as I submitted the question what the right answer was.

    Thanks for all the support guys, this forum has been a huge help even though I'm mostly a reader.
