I can't believe how much more enjoyable it is to study than CCNA. Interest in cisco renewed. icon_cheers.gif

    Oh you just wait..CCNA is like swimming in the kiddie pool.

    CCNP is going to drop you off in the Bering Sea and the sheer depth is an eye opener. Good luck! :)
    Modularity and Design Simplicity:

    Think of the 2:00 a.m. test—if you were awakened in the
    middle of the night because of a network problem and had to figure out the
    traffic flows in your network while you were half asleep, could you do it?

    LOL this must be common because I was so shocked how much I enjoyed studying for Route in the beginning. I also saw someone else mention it in another thread even. Let us know how you feel in a few weeks ;)

    LOL! So true....it's all good until you cracking the book and you turn a page...then turn another..turn another..never ending while the depth is staggering. CCNP is a serious certification and not for those with no enjoyment or love for networking.

    It gets easier with time and repetition. Strong comprehension of the concepts and understanding the "WHY" and not just the "HOW" behind various implementations were key for me when I started.

    I need to get back on the ROUTE horse myself - been through the entire curriculum 3 times but man, it bores the crap out of me!

    haha, read like 5 chapters... watched the first eigrp video from cbt nuggets and it kind of just blew me away... basic configuration? I was only expecting to run the protocol and advertise networks... maybe no auto-summary statements.... boy oh boy was I wayyyy off
