A couple of weeks ago, Cisco released CCNP v2 exam. It will replace the current 642-xxx series exam by the end of January next year. Those who are currently finishing the series like me, don’t have to worry since everything maps out to v2. For example if you have done v1 of routing, you can still complete your CCNP by doing v2 of Switching and Tshoot.
This week is assessment week for my cisco students, I wish them all the luck. They’ll be going through assessment covered in book 1 ICDN1. The exams are pretty full-on starting off with a 2.5 hours practical build, followed by the theory and troubleshooting exam the following week.
As for me, feeling a little confident with my studies and may decide to take my Tshoot (final exam) really soon. If that happens it will be way earlier than my target date. The next 2 weeks will be pretty slow since its assessment week so it will give me time to push for some review time.
