Passed TSHOOT, got CCNP!

I passed today with 937. This was by far the easiest of the 3 tests, but I do feel like if you weren't experienced at troubleshooting networks it could be difficult.

The abort button was very useful. I ended up with 50 minutes remaining at the end.. The first few tickets were stumping me, so I aborted them, then the next few were super easy ones to solve that took only a minute, and was able to catch up on the hard ones later on!

Happy to get CCNP, I think I'll relax for a while and decide if I want to pursue a RHCE cert, another language, or maybe some security certs. Maybe I'll even get the crazy idea of going for CCIE..

For non-cert related studying there are some more labs I'm interested in doing for fun:

Try using Yersinia to do some attacks, then shut them down using ip arp inspection. This was really fun with Cain & Abel.
Finish all of the CCNP lab guide book labs for interesting topics.
Gain an even more in depth knowledge of BGP.
Learn TCP troubleshooting in Wireshark as well as I know VoIP troubleshooting.

Keep Learning! Good luck to everyone studying for CCNP!

    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.

    Congratulations, and enjoy! The CCNP-SP/CCIP track goes into more depth with BGP. Of course, one of the nice things about a new certification, is often it comes with new responsibilities, and hopefully you'll get to play with these protocols plenty in the field. :)
