    Been through the first module of the INE videos, not too bad. The WLAN and QoS stuff was an easy review.

    Onward to to Module 2 and routing protocols! As I still work my way through the FLG book.

    I don't have work scheduled this weekend so I should be getting some good study time in this weekend!

    Working my way through routing protocols now. I'll probably be spending some extra time around IPv6 and multicast.

    Good luck on the ARCH exam! While you are going through the material remember to take notes on the best practices and design considerations as it'll help. Spend some additional time understanding the how and why of QoS and why one routing protocol may be better than another based on the technical design specification. I can't say much more without violating the NDA.

    FWIW Once you get done with ARCH you will see a lot of the material repeated through other design exams (partner specialization).

    Thanks for the tips!

    Yea I've had a rouh week (and next week won't be any better) but I'm still working my through routing protocols. SOme cool stuff in there. Due some experiences at work Ive already read the a bunch of the routing protocol design guides on Cisco sites many times already lol.

    OSPF Design Guide - Cisco Systems

    Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol - Cisco Systems

    Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN) Design Guide (Version 1.1)* [Design Zone for IPv6] - Cisco Systems

    You know, it's a good thing I enjoy this stuff or I'd be in trouble LOL.



    My company is working on building their partner relationship with Cisco so I might be going for some of the specializations in the future, but we will see.

    Spent the day going through Multicast, a very worth while refresher since I haven't really touched multicast since my CCNP studies.

    I definitely took some heavy notes on this chapter.

    Well I am just about finished ARCH FLG.

    Now I'm going to dig through some IPv6 stuff, review Top Down Network Design (again), and get lost in all the notes I've taken.

    I'm actually going to traveling this week for work (Off to Chicago I go!) So I should be able to knock out a lot more reading/review on the plane ride.

    I might actually make this arbitrary deadline I set for myself

    Still in review mode going over my Kindle books and evernote stuff... Off to Orlando tomorrow.

    Might try and tackle this exam in a week or two (depending on my work schedule and how much I get to review this weekend)
