    Thanks.

    I'll do up a review of Richard Deal's ASA book too next week (an earlier request), I used it for the ASA side of this one and it's definitely my go-to ASA reference now.

    Dusting this off as I'm getting ready to re-certify again...wow....time flies. I've been focusing mostly on Juniper for about the last year so my Cisco Fu is getting weak, I'm kinda glad for the excuse to prioritize catching back up again but it is putting some other study plans on hold. Anyway my aim is to get the written done before the end of October (got the CEH to knockout too so that will get in the way). I've started (about halfway through now) with Richard Deal's ASA book again, as I've mentioned many times I like his writing style so it's a good way to ease back into the flow.I picked up the kindle edition of "CCIE Security V3.0 Quick Reference" so that will be next. I know my specific knowledge is not as good as it was when I first did this but it's so much easier now to absorb the information again (a few things that I just memorized previously now make more sense and click into place), I guess those braincells aren't completely dead....yet .

    Thanks.

    About 3/4 through it now focusing more on principals than exact config since that's where the written lies. last night was primarily over things like Remote-Access VPN since I haven't done one outside of a lab for oh...about 4 years. I still hate the way they laid out SSL VPN configs, I've seen the same mentality with the way they changed NAT etc. for 8.3+ in that they're kinda looking at grouping config now for objects and functions (which is a good thing) but haven't gone far enough to actually modify the CLI and heirarchy to really leverage that. So you end up using a CLI with commands and options built for a flat config navigating around subsections that really work best as heirarchical/stanza based. Ah well.
    Spent some time on MPF again, I have worked with that more so not as steep a hike as the first time around. I should have that book finished this weekend then onto I might go to Richard Deal's Router Security book instead and keep the flashcards and quick-notes until last.

    Well had to postpone the exam due to some family issues (it has not been a good month) but I'll try to finish it off this or next week at the latest. The cutoff for the current blueprint is right around the corner so I don't really have much choice, besides I need to get back to the CEH and JNCIE-Sec so it's annoying me I've had this drag on. Anyway. I've been through the latest Cisco Quick-Reference (3.0) a few times and am on the 2nd run through "Network Security Technologies and Solutions", interspersed with trips to the Cisco online docs. I ended up getting the Ucertify package also (kind've an impulse thing) but tbh have not been overly impressed, there are whole segments missing from the course material and what there is is extremely sparse. The exam questions aren't bad though, some weak and badly worded scenarios/questions in there but overall so far they've been reasonable.

    Have to say I'm really loving having the Kindle client on my phone. Very handy for filling up free time bubbles during the day. I think I'll cave on Black Friday and finally buy a Pad, then pop it on there too. I think I'm okay on the core technologies so I'm going to focus on the peripheral stuff like MARS, CSA etc. today.

    You might want to look at the Surface, for a tablet.

    The reviews of the RT model look great. The Pro model is what i'm hoping for - mmm, programs I need on a tablet. yay.

    Aye Surface does look good but I ended up getting an Asus Transformer TF300 instead. It'll do what I need and I got a good deal on it, plus I like the crossover between my Phone and the pad, I don't need that so much with my Desktops since I plan to just RDP to them for apps that are Windows only.
    Anyway coming down to the final stages, orderly study has gone out the window in lieu of hunting down specific topics from the blueprint.

    Passed again, so it's down for another 2 years. It remains the worst security exam I've ever sat, I never come out of it feeling like it was an achievement, just a hurdle. Pointless questions on areas that are way out of scope for what they should be covering. Absolutely written by folks who do not, or likely never have, worked in a production security environment.

    Here are the resources I used this time (in order of usefulness):

    Network Security Technologies and Solutions (definitely the central source for this exam).
    Cisco ASA Configuration
    The Complete Cisco VPN Configuration Guide
    Cisco Router Firewall Security
    Lan Switch Security
    Security Monitoring with Cisco MARS
    Cisco Online DOCs, Wikipedia and other Internet sources for hunting down specifics from the blueprint (management systems in particular are not really covered very well in the preceding books, online was better)
    Cisco Security V3.1 Quick Reference (really not very good a all, no real detail).

    Ignore the spammer. I messaged him this morning to try to see what this "training" involved. Claimed in broken english to have the "real lab workbooks" for the all low price of $1500 and he accepts Paypal! Oh of course he has a CCIE (according to him) but he won't provide the number :P

    Idiots like this will never get far in the professional world and I don't think anyone on this forum would be dumb enough to send $1500 to some random guy on the internet
