passed JNCIA JunOS yesterday

I didn't do as well as I expected (a pass is a pass though), but this past week was busy and did not get as much time to study as I usually like, so a couple of topics I wasn't too well versed in for the exam.
However I setup a small Juniper routing lab in my virtual environment that I will keep running so I will continue doing Juniper related material.

I really enjoyed learning about Juniper, I learned a lot about Networking in general, I've always been a Server/Infrastructure person, and my networking skills were enough to get a router/switch/firewall connected and running, but ended beyond completely basic configuration.

I am thinking of doing JNCIS-Sec in the future, Juniper obviously doesn't have the market share or name recognition of Cisco, but I really enjoy using it more than I do Cisco, if I was going to move into networking I'd definitely prefer it to be Juniper.

    I'm looking to take this sometime in the next few months, what did you use for study material outside of your own lab?

    Used the CBT Nuggets videos for it, I read online quite a lot also but did not purchase any books.

    If you have your CCNA you will not have any problems with this exam.

    Is juniper similar to CCNA? They seem to be the next big network company

    Great work!
    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?

    I can't comment too much as I have not done CCNA.

    From what most people say JNCIA is an easier test, I hear CCNA is a bit more theoretical.
    I did not find JNCIA super easy like for example ITIL.
    Maybe because I had a solid knowledge of networking already the main subject I needed to learn was JunOS so I found the test easier than some.

    If I had 0 networking fundamentals I think it would of been a bit more of a struggle to pass.
