Passed today! Overall I thought it was a weird exam. I did not like the wording on a few questions. Some of the images were difficult to read as well. The sim intimidated me as it was my first time really working with SDM, but if you know the concepts you can power through them. Study material was the official exam cert guide (which i don't really recommend), self study guide, and Chris Bryant's videos.

    CCNP R&S. Started reading last night. I am not sure if I should start with the routing or switching first. I figured I would start with switching because to me its less complex and probably easier to retain while I read the other book. On the other hand, if I read the routing book first it will take me a small amount of time to finish the switching book lol. Not sure what the best approach is =p.

    I've gone the ROUTE way, only because I don't have physical switches.
    In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

    Good Luck either way you go.

    As I said on other threads here, the SWITCH exam was very difficult. ROUTE was much easier for me. I found the OCG for the ROUTE exam to be spot on, while the OCG for the SWITCH exam was lacking.
