I just got back from my TSHOOT exam. I got a score of 876 and I honestly think I would have done better if I had actually taken the test RIGHT after the Route exam but I passed and I'm happy. The only thing I really used to study for it was the TSHOOT Simplified book but even that was overkill. I think anyone who legitimately studied for the Route and Switch exams could pass TSHOOT in their sleep.

I set out about a year ago with the goal of getting my CCNP by the end of 2013 and I'm happy that I finished it before the end of the year. I learned a lot that I was able to apply to my job.

So what's next? Unfortunately, I can't take the weekend off because I have my (hopefully!) last exam for my last class for my MS on Monday. I'm going to study all weekend and hope I pass it. After that? I'm hoping for my CCDA, CCDP and CCNP Security next year. It might be too much for one year but we'll see.
