    Default ARCH scheduled for Tuesday...EDIT #PASSED#

    I don't feel 1000% about this one, due to impending baby arrival I haven't been able to study as much as I would like. Still hoping to pass though, I have done a fair bit of study doing/reading all the student guides, reading quite a few networkers presentations, and reading through the best practice design guides posted by packetlife.

    Wish me luck, I think I might need it!

    Oh and when is the new baby expected? Don't say Tuesday.

    Good luck man. I am working on this one along with fighting off "minor" distractions from work, lfe, etc.

    I hope you nail it and it would be interesting to see if your "little" distractions affected you in any major way.

    Good luck with the exam and the soon to be released, addition to the family!.

    Well I passed, with a score over 970, not too shabby. I think I was unsure about 5 questions on the exam, not too tough after reading the student guides and doing all the case studies.

    I did really like all the material, I was re-reading some of the student guide and I think they will become a great first step when I need to look at best practices for designing something. I already have a full access layer redesign planned for work. It will tie in with a big NAC deployment we are doing, so might as well do it right!


    Thanks for the support,

    dynamik: I have made a commitment to do no "structured" study until January, but the goals are CCIP, then hopefully onto CCIE. I still haven't decided which exam to do, QoS/BGP/MPLS. Any ideas?

    I would hit QoS first and then think about whether to do the composite or separate BGP and MPLS exams. FWIW.

    Good idea about no structured study till January as you will be probably busy with diaper duty!

    No way! End with QoS, so you have three years from that day to wrap up the VP

    I thought about mentioning that option too but I don't think voice is his thing.
