Passed 642-611 (MPLS)

I passed the MPLS exam earlier today. It was the most difficult exam I have had to do yet; not because of the content, but because of all of the glitchces. I literally finished with 15 seconds left because every sim I got ended up freezing for 20 to 30 seconds at a time. I must have lost about 10 minutes just with these three issues.

Anyway, MPLS was a blast to study for so I am bummed it is over (until CCIE that is!!). Now I am trying to determine if I should do ROUTE or QOS. I am pissed at myself though because it has been just over three years since I took and passed the BSCI for my CCNP so I could have been able to not take ROUTE. Oh well, it will only add a month of time onto the clock.

Onward and upward...

    Right now I know nothing about MPLS, but I can't wait to get into it after my CCNP! Something just spikes my curiosity about it. And now you saying how much you liked it makes me want to order some books right now lol. I know what you mean by difficult, but a blast to study for.. that's how I felt with the Route exam. I really enjoyed it. In a way I'm glad to cover new material now with SWITCH, but I think I just enjoy routing more.

    Since you already had BSCI nothing will really be an eye opener for you. Good luck with your next one!! (be it Route or Qos)

    Hey man congradulations on the pass. What did you use to study?
    I passed my Route Switch and TSHoot, with full CCNP I can't find a job. So I want to do CCIP before CCIE

    Please advise on the material used.

  • unclericounclerico Member Posts: 237
    I used a bunch of different materials:

    Configuring MPLS on iOS
    MPLS and VPN architectures vols I and Ii
    MPLS fundamentals
    INE videos
    IPExpert audio books for when I'm in the car
    Cisco docs

    I would highly advise you to take either the BGP exam first or go for the composite exam.

    As for why you cant find a job, what kind of experience do you have?

    I work as a tech support for a VoIP provider.

    I was hoping this would change after doing CCNP, I have tried to polish my resume. However I am not having any luck finding a better job.
