    Three months is how long Cisco is giving their scholarship awardees to go through the material. If you have a background in security, such as experience, training, and/or certifications, then it shouldn't be too difficult to accomplish by the end of July. What resources will you use?

    4-5 hours a day? I'd have to assume in 1 month you could probably knock it out.

    Can you explain what degree you have? I'm a little confused on how you have a degree in Networking which would require a lot of Networking classes & labs/projects but yet say you don't have any experience with it? (I have a degree in Networking)

    Seriously, if you already got a networking degree and understand basic networking concepts, I'm pretty sure if your actually putting in 4-5 hours a day and you can get this in one month.

    If you can knock it out prior to returning to school, I would recommend it.

    I am finishing my AS in Network Infrastructure next week, and Cisco Academy classes were part of the curriculum. I kept telling myself I would find time to really study and take the exam while everything was fresh, but with the amount of full-time school work, I haven't been able to do so.

    Once school ends, I will have time to review topics and take the exam.

    Your situation may differ, however.

    Good luck.
