TVOICE complete [5/5] Now CCNP:Voice

Finally, the 3 year saga is over. Passed the final exam, TVOICE, now achieved my CCNP:Voice.

Materials Used:
INE videos
Cisco LiveLesson videos
CBT Nuggets
Troubleshooting Cisco IP Telephony (2002) - old, but if you take out all the CCM v4.x specific material, still handy
TVOICE Study Guide (2010) - badly scanned PDF found "online" (and in places illegible), but relevant to the exam
Home lab

Still need to go back over things I've rushed, and to fill in some blanks.

Not sure how I managed to cram in the last 3 exams in 4 months, and all without working with CUCM on a daily basis, but we get lucky sometimes.

New goals, after taking a well earned break that is, delve deeper into my recently purchased UC520W for the home network and take a look at CCNA:Security to broaden my knowledge.

PS: Must be time for pitviper to remind me of my tardiness icon_lol.gif again

    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 completely agree... the tvoice was the most difficult IMO!!! I took the full time alloted... scored in the 86x's. CAPPS remains!

    it is just capable of covering so many areas, anything from CVOICE, CIPT1 and CIPT2, makes it v.hard to focus your study on given areas

  • Why don't you achieve CCIE:V?
  • I meant why you did change the track to S? Why did you stop at NP level?

    Come on, it hasn't been a week yet. icon_lol.gif Before even considering continuing to CCIE level, I need a lot more practical real world experience.

    Plus its always good to broaden you knowledge base. Not really interested in the Sec track, but at least have a foundation level understanding of Site-to-Site and Remote VPN, ASA and also Nexus which I'm dealing with more. There's always more to learn.

    When I finish CCNP Voice I am doing the same. I've done a fair amount of ASA and VPN so it shouldn't be too difficult and will be a good refresh. Probably CCDA after CCNA Security eventually CCNP plus ARCH for CCDP as well. I don't enjoy complex routing so who know if I'll ever make it that far.

    I did CCDA after CIPT1, just due to being out on the road living out of motels for 6 months with work. CCDA will put you to sleep, very very dry subject...all theory and concepts, having done SWITCH (which I hadn't) would definitely helps.

    Well done Az :)

    Congratulations Fella. Hoping to join you in CCNP:V in 6 months or so, if the plans work out. Sounds like the printed resources for this exam are few and far between. I'll worry about that when it happens. I plan to do TVOICE last too.
    Going all out for Voice. Don't worry Data; I'll never forget you
