SWITCH passed!

Hey,

I passed my SWITCH exam on Friday. Haven't really been on here much while studying for it.

I have to say, it's the hardest exam I've done yet. I really struggled with it, and was amazed and let out a whispered "YES!" when it said I got 847/1000. I was genuinely surprised. It was like chalk and cheese to the ROUTE exam, which I actually enjoyed.

I started with the OCG, but moved on to CCNP SWITCH Simplified which I bought on Kindle. By the time I did the exam, I'd read both of them front to back, and put a fair few evenings in the spare bedroom lost in my lab. I definitely found the Simplified book better than the OCG.

Just TSHOOT to go - supposed to be the easy one though, right? Going to build the topology at home and hopefully get it done in the next couple of weeks or so.

As always, thanks to all of you guys for any help you've given.

Nick.

    Congrats! You're pretty much a CCNP, TSHOOT shouldn't be that much of an issue.
    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.

    I think ROUTE is the hardest. SWITCH is all theory more than anything.

    Congrats! I passed SWITCH last week, one more to go.

    Congrats! I agree with you iamme4eva, I thought that switch was a tricky exam. If you're taking the exam soon I'd also watch the bull's eye strategy ccnp troubleshoot videos on youtube, it helped me a lot!
