It has been 3 days since I have passed my CCNP Route exam. I still haven’t recovered from the stress that it has brought me but here I am at school already hammering through CCNP switch materials. The goal is the get switching within 60 days assuming nothing unexpected happens like flooding in the Philippines or something. Here are the materials and gear I will be using for this study:
- CISCO press CCNP Switch book
- CISCO Netacad lab book
- CISCO Netacad power point materials
- CBTNuggets CCNP Switching with Jeremy Cioara
- Chris Bryant CCNP Switch Boot Camp
- 2×2960, 2×3560, 1×2911 (voice)
Early observations, going through the materials I noticed there’s really not much different from the new CCNAX that Cisco just rolled out a couple of months ago. New stuff included Private VLANS, VACL, PACL, RACL and a couple of security and VoIP stuff. Honestly if I can do this within the month, I will take the exam as early as possible and move on the Tshoot. I just want to get my CCNP R&S as soon as possible.
The plan for now is after finishing CCNP I wanna get MCSA for Windows 2012 just to balance me out. I am really passionate about learning and teaching all these stuff to students. Of course the end goal is to get my CCIE no. and maybe have my own consultancy company.
I just received an email from a training organization in the city offering me a casual position teaching weeknights and a couple of weekends. According to the CEO classes might start in a month, I am so excited.
