Finished CCNP

Passed the TSHOOT today. Passed with a 794, just 4 points above cut-off. Probably could have done much better but I didnt really prepare well. Especially the network maintanance models and higher level management part. Spent the night before the test playing Starcraft 2 with some friends.

I really like how Cisco did it overall. It goes a long way towards preventing ****. I don't really know how much help it would be to have inside knowledge of the test like braindumps give you.

As far as materials, I got the Cisco press TSHOOT book which was helpful. Good read, and a pretty good reference for future needs as well. Other than that I just used google for stuff i forgot from the BSCI and BCMSN and built out the lab once so I would be familiar with the environment. Building out the environment once is probably the most helpful thing you could do.

    Congrats!!!

    It's excellent to hear the new tests are making it very difficult for the cheats.

    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Finish my bachelors so i graduate in december and look for full time jobs i guess. I scheduled the TSHOOT a bit earlier than I was comfortable with because I wanted to have the CCNP on my resume for the job fairs and whatnot coming up.

    Certification wise, I was thinking either go the CCIP route or maybe the CCDx certs. Probably will be a month or two before I start doing anything certification wise though.
