So I am finishing up CCNA2 in the CNA program, and I must say,

I thought I had respect for CCIE's before...

You guys are flipping crazy....

    Wait till you get to the NP. When I started studying for my first Pro exam I thought my head was going to explode.

    Yeah, its pretty crazy what a jump it is from the NA to the NP. Its funny though because when I was initially studying for the NA I thought it was crazy how much material was covered in that track.

    On a side note, congrats on passing the written Colby.

    Congrats from a non Cisco certified noob. (Might change after I finish WGU)
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    My first exam was BSCI, so my head exploded as I read through the first question. Freaking crazy hard!!!

    It's all relative. I vividly remember sitting in the parking lot after getting my CCNA and explaining the Cisco roadmap to my wife, how I might go for the professional level and there was this mythical thing called a CCIE but there was no way in hell we'd ever be able to go for it :).
    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?

    Ha, I did this too! I didn't plan on the CCIE at all, and wasn't sure about the NP. It just kind of happens.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys.

    The NP has not felt that difficult, just really time consuming, more so than Microsoft/CompTia by far. I still think the level of familiarity you need with the concepts involved with the IE LAB makes me feel dumb at the NP level.

    Lab, sure. But for the written, as far as I can tell, the NP was a great investment of time and money. I feel like i'm at least familiar with all of the topics thus far and that the NP helped tremendously with that familiarity.
