    I know the feeling! Try to keep calm and get good sleep / eat well before going into the exam.

    I am not going to lie, it’s far from easy but if you know your stuff well enough you will do fine.

    Also, don't get discouraged from a fail. It's a great learning tool to come back stronger!

    Good Luck!

    If you were nervous for CCNA then watch out..because CCNA is kiddy poop in comparison. CCNP being kiddy poop to CCIE

    You either know it or you don't at this point, final prep is always good but it's go time. Good luck!

    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?

    Good luck mate! Make sure you really really know redistribution between the IGPs. It makes sense that Cisco would ask a lot of questions regarding redistribution because they can test a candidate's knowledge on multiple technologies at once.

    That rush you get when you sit down for the exam is intense! I remember I had to remove my earplugs cause my heartbeat was so loud. Good Luck with Route! I just recently passed switch and starting on route and feeling alittle intimidated with it.

    Is there a new certification called "CCNP Switch"? How do I get that? You have it listed so it must be a cert right?

    Must be on the same track as the CCWKIA.

    The same place you earn your CCIE-Written certification :)
    Back in my day we used to route packets on 56k lines, through the snow, uphill both ways.

    Very true! The CCNA exams were a cakewalk compared to this beast of an exam. I passed though!

    So I'm pretty sure there was one simlet with requirements that were impossible to meet. I can't really say anything about it here though since it would break NDA. I know there is a place for comments on the exams but I didn't want to waste anymore precious time and took a chance completing the work. Should I let this go or should I mention it to PearsonVue (who would report it to Cisco)?
