Passed CCNP TSHOOT today - Now a CCNP

I passed the CCNP TSHOOT today with 1000 out of 1000.

I thought the exam was pretty tough - definitely not as easy as some have said. There were several questions that I had to go to other tickets and see a working config and then go back. There were also a few where I would have never come up with the answer to the third question except I was able to weed all the other answers out. I then had to figure out why the last answer left would fix the problem.

To prepare for the exam, I read the entire OCG, watched all the videos on the CCNP TSHOOT cert guide CD, did all the Boson practice questions that came with the OCG and did all of the Boson ExSim-Max practice trouble tickets over and over until I could do them in under 2 minutes each.

I also wrote a configuration for the entire TSHOOT Topology, so that I could spot things in a config that were wrong.

So, the CCNP is finally complete. Now to convince my company to promote me from tech to engineer, or find another job.

    Awesome, congrats!

    I don't know if Cisco changed the way they're doing things, but I'm still waiting for my hard copy cert. However, about a week after I passed, I receive an email from Cisco with a link to a pdf version of my cert, as well as the wallet card.

    Thanks for the congratulations everyone!
    Yes, it feels great. I still feel stressed though. I may need another day to de-stress.

    I've had some great scores before, but never 1000 either. I think the TSHOOT exam is everyone's best shot at it though.
