Bgp+mpls 986/1000

I just passed this exam today. I am so glad I did the combo exam, thus saving the money. I definitely was prepared for this thing, but having about 5+ months of preparatory study for it, made a huge difference. If finances would have cooperated, I would have taken it sooner, but, alas, life is life...

Anyway, enough of the boring stuff. Here were my study materials:

Cisco.Press.Configuring.BGP.StudentGuide.v.3.2.Vol.1.pdf
Cisco.Press.CCIP.BGP.Configuring.BGP.on.Cisco.Routers.v3.2.Vol.2.2005.pdf
BGP_Design_-_Cisco.pdf
Routing TCPIP, Volume II (CCIE Professional Development series) (Kindle Edition).pdf
MPLS22_InstructorCD
Cisco.Press.MPLS.Fundamentals.Nov.2006.pdf
Cisco Press - MPLS and VPN Architectures(2000).chm
Cisco Press - MPLS and VPN Architectures Volume II(2003).pdf
The Foundation GAP CCNP to CCIE
norbik_Soup_2_Nuts
CBT Nuggets - CCIE R&S (BGP videos)
GNS3

This test definitely hit on the exam topics, while not hitting on others I assumed would get hammered. This was my 10th Cisco exam and I still wonder where they come up with some of the questions...

Cisco Test Writer 1: You think this is a good question?
Cisco Test Writer 2: I don't know. I've read it three times and don't know what the hell it's asking.
Cisco Test Writer 1: Perfect.

All I have left to be a full-fledged CCIP is the QoSimoto exam, which I hope is quick and painless to prepare for, being that I already made love to the Wendell Odom book a few times and watched the 642-642 CBT videos while studying for the ONT over a year ago. While the ONT was my closest touch with failing (passed by 1 question...), I did get a 94% on the DiffServ portion of that, which offset my wireless futility. Stupid damn wirelesss...

Anyway, good luck to all of those about to take this exam!

    congrats, as a question I passed it a week ago. I thought it was a fair test but I think it needs to be updated.

    lol now that's funny
    If you cannot express in a sentence or two what
    you intend to get across, then it is not focused
    well enough.

    I accept your snide remark as punishment for my inability to afford obtaining the resources needed to better myself in the eyes of Cisco. For that, I will always be a lesser man than you.

    I am extremely jealous of your self-righteousness, as I know people absolutely have to love being around someone with your moral center. When you're done reading this I highly suggest you rush outside and help that old lady across the street or save that cute kitty from being stuck in your neighbor's tree.

    Have a great day, kind Sir!

    Uhm, dude, we tend to keep things on the up and up around here. You really don't have a leg to stand on.

    At least you didn't post any filenames that were **** pdf's. That would have really set off a firestorm
