Finally got my red wings

I finally rounded out my CCNP on 5/10/13, 2 years and 3 days after passing my CCENT.Instead of actually studying for the TSHOOT test, I pretty much just went head first into CCIE written studies after SWITCH and when I felt pretty good, I took the TSHOOT and totally aced it. I must have missed only one trouble ticket.

I've been studying for the CCDA for fun, was planning on doing the test first week of June but I found out I'm doing some travel that week so it may have to wait.

I am attending a CCIE written bootcamp the third week of October, and on the last day of it, I take the test. I have a list of 9 books I want to have finished by the time that class hits.

I've finished:
Cisco LAN Switching Conf Handbook
TCP/IP Vol 1
TCP/IP Vol 2
Internet Routing Arch ( half way through )

Haven't started:
MPLS Configuration on Cisco IOS Software
Cisco QOS Exam Cert Guide
Interdomain Multicast Solutions Guide
The 2nd Internet
CCIE R&S Certification Guide

    Yeah, I thought I had logged into the urban dictionary forums accidentally.

    Regardless, congrats on the accomplishment.

    Thanks guys.

    I'm going to try to finish the CCDA before the end of August, and do the second half of CCNA Data Center before October.

    The third week of October I have a bootcamp for the CCIE written where we take the test on the last day. Would be great to knock it out at that time, that would give me basically all of 2014 to study for the lab.

    That's a hectic certification schedule. Good Luck.
