Passed BGP

Hey guys, I know CCIP is not that popular these days, but I passed the BGP exam!

Results: 862/1000 - passing score 790

BGP Overview: 80%
Route Selection Using Policy Controls: 80%
Route Selection Using Attributes: 33%
Customer to Provider Connectivity with BGP: 100%
BGP Transit Autonomous Systems: 89%
BGP Route Reflectors: 78%
BGP Confederations: 100%
Advanced BGP Configuration: 71%
Scaling IGP and BGP in Service Provider Networks: 100%

As for the test, it was not one to take lightly. My main study technique was labbing in GNS3 and playing around with all types of BGP commands. As for reading it was mainly IRA, which didn't cover everything but was a great foundation.

Bring on MPLS

    Nice! I am studying for this one now as well and using IRA, Internetwork Expert's BGP bootcamp COD (which is pretty good for anyone thinking of purchasing), and GNS3.

    Congrats and good luck on the MPLS

    CCIP is definitely still popular for the SP jobs.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    a little late on the celebration I know but CONGRATZ!!! I plan on pursuing IP after I'm done with my NP.

    I think “very senior” gets stuck in there because the last six yahoos that applied for the position couldn’t tell a packet from a Snickers bar.

    Luck is where opportunity and proper planning meet

    I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
