SNAA Tomorrow!

powerfoolpowerfool Senior MemberMember Posts: 1,658 ■■■■■■■■□□
Tomorrow is the big day, SNAA tomorrow which will give me some a week of wiggle room in the unlikely event that I do not pass. I feel pretty good about it based on my level of experience with the PIX and ASA (over eight years). After that, I will be a Cisco ASA Specialist and I will have only the IPS exam to complete CCSP/CCNP Security.

I will be have a decent amount of time (around two months) to prepare for the IPS exam, which is good because I do not have any practical experience with any IDS or IPS, although I have researched and studied them for my graduate school work. Then, the certification break comes for the Summer.

After the break, it is PMP and the CCIE Security written exam so I can spend the better part of 2012 preparing for the lab, and getting two shots in. If I cannot get the lab done in two shots, I will push it back until 2013 for the third attempt. I think two attempts will be adequate, however. I want to get that done before I begin my MBA. The MBA will be good for Group B CISSP CPEs and PDUs for the PMP, so that will be good.

    I usually hang out on 224.0.0.10 (FF02::A) and 224.0.0.5 (FF02::5) when I'm in a non-proprietary mood.

    Knocked that one down, which will give me the opportunity to do some working ahead on the CEH before my class that is coming up, rather than studying for this again. Honestly, it seems rather straight forward with my experience, as with all of the Cisco exams; Microsoft tends to have at least a few questions that have no good answers...

    Anyhow, a little break from Cisco for CEH, and then diving right back in for IPS!

    Thanks for the kind words all.

    I used CBT Nuggests and the Cisco curriculum (not a book, but what is used in official Cisco courseware).
