Hey everyone,

It's been a very long day, I had to drive a couple of hours each way to get to my testing center this morning. This is after my first testing center's network was down on Tuesday.

ICND2 Odom book
CCNA Lammle Guide
CBT Nuggets
real hardware

about 300 hours or so I would say since Oct 1 2008 went into this and ICND1

970 with 20 minutes left (surprisingly I had time remaining, it was really short it seemed)

    Congrats! That's a great score!

    Are you going to be doing more Cisco certs?

    I think I might start on the ccna:voice or ccna:security.

    Is there a certification that focuses on the ASA or PIX? We use both products frequently where I work, and training on them would help.

    I believe CCSP focuses on ASAs. CCNA:Security is the prerequisite for CCSP, so that would put you on the right track.

    CONGRATS on the pass! Thanks for listing your training setup/material, I plan on starting Cisco after I finish up my MCSA ( 291 test next week). Any comments on the GNS3? I know a lot of people recommend it, I have downloaded it but haven't installed it for my lab yet.
    -WIP- (70-294 and 297)

    Once MCSE 2k3 completed:

    WGU: BS in IT, Design/Management

    Finish MCITP:EA, CCNA, PMP by end of 2012

    After that, take a much needed vacation!!!!!

    Congratulations! icon_cheers.gif

    The Cisco Specialist Certifications are nice since you get something for just a couple exams. The down side is that they expire every two years. You either re-take the exams or do a CCIE Written Exam to recertify them.

    The Cisco ASA Specialist (dang! I don't have that one!!) requires CCNA:Security as a prerequisite and the 2 CCSP ASA Exams.
