BGP/MPLS 642-691 exam scheduled

Exam scheduled for 6 Aug 2009. This should wrap up the CCIP for me! Finally, it seems like it has been a long road for the CCIP.

Material studied for exam:

Knet BGP Videos
Trainsignal BGP Videos (CCNP level for review)
CBT Nuggets BGP Videos (CCNP Level for review)
Knet MPLS Videos
IE CCIE SP Videos
CCIE Exam Cert Guide (MPLS and BGP sections)
Routing TCP/IP Vol 2 (BGP section)
MPLS VPN Architectures Vol 1
Narbik Gap from CCNP to CCIE BGP labs
CCNP ISCW Lab portfolio (MPLS Labs)
And I made some of my own labs along the way.

whew, thats a lot of stuff. Anyway, good luck to all those studying.

    oooh Iḿ intrigued as well :) Good Luck!

    Going on your study materials, Iḿ sure you will ace the composite.

    I thought about the composite for all of 5 mins.... then decided to go the same path as Mike.....

    BGP did make me work for it as well, compared to other Cisco exams.... and I have a feeling the MPLS exam will do the same. Makes it all the more fullfilling, when we get that ṕass´ screen!

    cons to composite exams:

    -twice as much material you have to study.

    pros to composite exams:

    -possiblity of passing two cisco tests for the price of one
    -half as many questions they can ask as compared to taking the two exams separately. (1 exam = 50-60 questions, 2 exams = 100-120 questions).


    The deal breaker for me is the fact that I get reimbursed the cost of the test regardless if i pass or fail. So yeah, I'll give it a shot!

    Good luck CCIEWANNABE!

    I'm sure it will be tough, but killing two birds with one stone = win.

    bring it on is what I say, lol

    I've just realised that if I do the composite I can acheive this too.

    So will be hoping you do well and pass on all tips.

    I like the look of the study list icon_biggrin.gif

    passed yesterday. test was not as hard as i thought it may be. i guess the last couple months i have been drowning myself in the two protocols, so a professional level test didn't seem that difficult. i don't know. well, know its on to building my CCIE R&S lab and studying for the beast!
