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.

Used:
ICND2 Odom book
CCNA Lammle Guide
CBT Nuggets
GNS3
real hardware

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


score
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?

    Thanks!

    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.
