JNCIS-SP Passed

It's been a while since I've taken an exam and with my JNCIA about to expire next month I decided to give this one a shot. Just like the JNCIA I think this was an over all easy exam assuming you have studied properly. The questions are definitely not on the level of complexity of a similar level Cisco exam. The only place I didn't feel 100% on is the switching sections as I really don't have much experience with switching on the Juniper side. I have a good handle on STP and switching theory, but not really with the implementation on the MX platform. The score report reflects pretty well my comfort level with the technologies.

I used the official course material for the JIR, JMV and JSPX to study and it covers everything you need to know!

Scored 94%.

VPNs 100%
Ethernet Switching and Virtual LANs 71%
Spanning Tree 100%
Protocol Independent Routing and High Availability 80%
OSPF 100%
IS-IS 100%
BGP 100%
Tunnels 100%
IPv6 80%
MPLS 100%

    Congrats on the pass! It may be time to start working on JNCIE-SP. A close friend of mine just took his exam over in Amderstam.

    What is the JNCIS-SP equivalent to on the Cisco side?

    I don't know if there is a straight equivalent on the Cisco side, but its a mixture of the CCIP and CCNP topics.

    Excellent, congrats!
    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?

    Thanks everyone.

    I'll probably try to knock out the JNCIP-SP by the end of the year or early next year after a read through the advanced level materials (I took the courses last year so a refresher will be in order). After that I need to do some sort of Cisco pro level exam next year to recert there, maybe ROUTE. After that hopefully the JNCIE-SP if I have the time and motivation!
