Tshoot/ccnp - done

I'm finally done with my CCNP! I took the TSHOOT exam this morning, passed 1000/1000. What a FUN exam, very real world. For those who are currently working on obtaining a CCNP, if you master SWITH and ROUTE, TSHOOT will be easy. Another tip, I would take the exams in the following order: SWITCH, ROUTE, TSHOOT.

I have most of the recommended CCIE books already so I'm going to dive right into it. icon_cheers.gificon_study.gif

    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    What books do you have? plan on getting for you CCIE:R+S?

    Congratulations, by the way!
    In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

    Thanks. I took ROUTE on 8/24 and I took TSHOOT today so it was about one month in-between the two exams. For TSHOOT, I watched CBT Nuggets, read the OCG, and spent countless hours on GNS3.

    Wow! Major congrats on that 1000/1000
    Modularity and Design Simplicity:

    Think of the 2:00 a.m. test—if you were awakened in the
    middle of the night because of a network problem and had to figure out the
    traffic flows in your network while you were half asleep, could you do it?

    Just passed my SWITCH on friday, starting to study for ROUTE. My company is all cisco all EIGRP. never have i had to do any bgp or vrf. i've only dealt with ospf that was already configured. and definitely no redistribution. seems like definite weak point for me, although i've heard on this forum that SWITCH was harder for a lot of people.. I think i'm going to do ARCH after TSHOOT and just knock out CCNP/CCDP at the same time. I have a goal of CCNP before I turn 30 in january.
