    Relax and read the questions! At this point you either know it or you don't. Good luck!

    Yep, just be calm and tackle each question. Good luck!

    I sat for the exam last month. I found it pretty straight forward.

    What I meant to say was that I'm going to take the Firewall exam soon. I have not taken it yet, I have no time to go into the City to take it (NYC). Busy with work and 9 month old.

    I will be going soon. I have to take time off work to take the test and I can't, too busy.

    I was just wanting advise. I've read the entire Cisco OCG Firewall book now re-reviewing book on NAT 8.4 and MPF. Watched the CBT Nuggets about 100x. I've also installed 150+ ASA firewalls in my previous job. I just HATE taking these Cisco test.

    Sorry about the wrong thread title...lol...

    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    Ahh lol. Well yea, like SteveO86 said, the test is pretty straight forward. I got hit with about 5 questions on a topic I skipped in the OCG because I thought it was a weak topic and I knew it well. I probably can't say because of the NDA but if you read most of the OCG you should be fine, especially since you've installed plenty of them in your past.

    The cbtnugget vids were great, compared to the other cbt vids i had for FIREWALL those were the best, they did miss a few topics though like QoS (or at least I didn't see it).

    Best of luck.

    I don't remember having anything that wasn't in the OCG, but I also typically read the offical documentation from cisco.com. Pay attention to key topics in OCG. If you come across something new put it to use somehow so your brain decides to spend the energy to remember it.
