Passed VCP4

Finally after almost a year since I took the class, I have passed the exam, I failed by a slim margin on my first attempt. The test is pretty challenging, I had the most trouble with things I don't work with everyday, for instance all my environments use NFS, so I don't have alot of hands on with ISCSI and FC, one frustration for me is some of the questions being on very obscure things, and several questions that seemed to have two correct answers, but I guess these complaints are no different than the ones I had from Microsoft's tests.

I am hopefully going to be taking the CCNA bootcamp in Jan or Feb, and also I will be concentrating on upgrading my MCSE in 2012, I'll need to slip in 40 CPE's some where and hopefully some Netapp study.
