Passed JNCIA-Junos

Passed this exam this morning. Was a nice change from the Cisco and Linux track I was recently on. I used the FastTrack program that Juniper is offering to get a 50% discount voucher and study materials for the exam. I have to say that the study materials that FastTrack provides will give you a good foundation if you have never worked with Juniper before, but aren't really enough to pass the exam. I think that the Routing Policies and Firewall Filters topics are really confusing if you have never worked with Juniper before and may take a few reads + additional materials in order to be able to understand correctly. All in all I thought that the exam was fair and with almost zero surprises.

Next up is the JNCIS-SEC exam. icon_cheers.gif

    Did you use any hardware or Olives?

    Congrats, btw.

    Thanks guys icon_smile.gif

    No Olives...we have a ton of Juniper gear in our internal company lab so I had access to an SRX240. I'm planning a run to the top of the security track and trying to decide if it is worth trying to find a virtual rack to rent and use or if I should beg the boss to through some more Juniper hardware in the lab.

    Congratz on pass!
    Pardon my ignorance, but Juniper gear cheaper than Cisco gear generally?

    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?

    Congrats! For theory portion, which study guide did you use? Have you used any practice exams, or juniper network simulators?

    I used everything in the Juniper Fast Track program, including the study guides provided, SRX documentation, and practice exams provided. I also did some labs on real equipment as well.
