Passed BCMSN

This was a very odd exam and there were a few things I would have never guessed would be on there. I wish that I had given myself a couple more days to reinforce many of the topics, but I passed and I can always go back over my leak areas later.

The Cisco Press books seem to be for some other version of the exam objectives, which was kind of annoying. The necessary information was still there, just between unnecessary stuff. For anyone else studying for this exam I recommend you carefully look over the exam topics and focus your studies in those areas of the books.The extra information is good to know, but I wouldn't spend a lot of time in those sections.

Looks as though there is some ISCW material in my future, or perhaps I'll do something unexpected tonight and relax a bit.

    Congrats man

    Well written opinion of the exam

    I'm one of many who thinks that Cisco needs to stick to what they teach in their books

    Because it looks like they scared away the competition when it to comes to books about the BCMSN

    Of course a lot of books are only available in digital these days so maybe I'm missing something

    Anyhow, nice job on the pass!

    I think Cisco is pushing us to look beyond the written text, and to leverage our research skills.
