Taking QoS tomorrow.

We will see whose QoS'ing reigns supreme! :p

I've read the QoS Certification Guide minus the Catalyst chapter, watched the INE videos, and read bits of end-to-end QoS. I feel better prepared than for most exams. But.. I don't know.. so many tools.. so many chapters.. and so new for me. I hope all will be well.

    I'd wish you luck but I know you won't need it. You're going to knock it out of the park

    Booo yahhh...let me be the first to tip my hat and offer congrats!
    Cisco was my first networking love, but my "other" router is a Mikrotik...

    Thanks, vinbuck. :)

    Score: 881
    Min Passing Score: 790

    86% - IP Qos Fundamentals
    100% - IP QoS Components
    90% - Modular QoS CLI and Auto-QoS
    89% - Classification & Marking
    75% - Congestion Management Methods
    64% - Congestion Avoidance Methods
    86% - Traffic Policing & Shaping
    100% - Link Efficiency Mechanisms
    50% - QoS Best Practices

    I only skimmed Cisco Best Practices and 2950 Congestion Management so I'm not surprised I lost points there. A solid performance elsewhere, except for WRED (review time!).

    I thought the test was straight-forward, up-to-date, and fair. I caught and reported three errors, but those did not affect which answers were right or wrong. :)

    Nice work. Hopefully I can finish my CCIP as well before the deadline. icon_neutral.gif

    congrats dude!

    In regards to the material, does it go into more than the average engineer to know or is it a must have for any engineer?

    Im very weak at QoS and are looking to improve. People have mentioned that QoS in the CCIE R&S is only skimmed in comparison to this so im not sure which would be more appropriate for me. i rarely work with QoS but feel i should gain a solid understanding of it, however, the QoS exam maybe overkill for my situation.

    I wouldn't say the material covered by the exam is essential for an average engineer. Then again, one reason to earn certifications, is to outperform the average engineer! I think the sections on classification, marking, and the interaction between various system queues and default queuing methods are the easiest to put into practice--even if your role doesn't include implementing fancy queuing. I've certainly found ways to apply that knowledge. I also like that I can talk intelligently about single-rate, three-color policers and know when/why shaping would be better. :)

    For me, it was an objective, well-aligned milestone between CCNP and CCIE.
