Sitting CCNA Security on 16th January

Been studying this only for 2-3 weeks. Though a lot of the content of this exam seems to be what I did way back in 2010 when I did the ISCW exam for CCNP.

Hasn't felt like a massive step in difficulty. It also helps that I am now 2nd line Network Support and have been since October '12 and so getting daily exposure to most things on the curriculum.

Material - CCNA Security Cisco Press guide, CBT Nuggets, GNS3...

I did buy an ASA5505 but I really haven't done much with it. I've done more in GNS with a virtual ASA than anything else, but as I intend to do the CCNP:Security straight afterwards then I haven't wasted any money in buying the ASA. I fully intend to use it in production at home :)

    Good luck with the exam - be sure to let us know how you get on.

    I'm thinking of doing CCNA:Sec shortly - what would you say has been the most difficult part of the curriculum for you?

    None of it has been difficult at all, though a lot of it has been review for me...

    Weee exam in the morning. Looking forward to getting it out of the way now so I can get on with CCNP:S

    Assume that SECURE is the next best exam to take as it looks remarkably like CCNA:S but in more depth.

    How would you rate the cbt nuggets from a scale of 1 - 10?
