FINALLY!!!

Passed my ICND2 exam this afternoon with a 916 :D

ICND1 was last month, jammed an 899 on material i wasn't even studying for lmfao!

This has been a very long road, literally 2+ yrs ago i started the self-study with CBT videos and Lammle's book; then signed up for official classes at my local community college, did that Jan thru August last year; took the composite exam shortly thereafter and (sniff) failed icon_sad.gif

No joke, i was shocked/gutted/stunned/po'd for a few months afterward. Rededicated myself back in April, got Odom's new books (just in case lol) and studied studied studied! It's funny, but the best thing to have happened to me was getting laid off in June. Now i had hours upon hours at my disposal to get sh!t done, and i did icon_thumright.gif

I have to crow, I need this release, this is a huge accomplishment for me with all the family/work/school juggling. Im just so damned pleased, so thanks for putting up with my exuberant exaltation icon_cheers.gif

Carry on lol

    Congrats, now remove the "CCENT" from your profile.
