    i rolled right into FIREWALL studies after passing SECURE earlier this month. this test is a little harder to judge my confidence level in the material as it all is very familiar in regards to past studying and hands on at work. i think another couple of weeks and i should be getting close to sitting the exam especially if i get in 3 days of good study at work this weekend.

    great discovery i found thanks to cbt nuggets is using the asdm demo modes (if you have access to the software) to practice the gui configuration of the FIREWALL topics.

    as long as the testing center is able to take me it looks like i'm going to give FIREWALL a go tomorrow afternoon. final brush up on topics this evening at work and playing around with ASDM demo mode to get ready.

    here goes nothing.

    I found it easier mainly due to the heavy use of ASDM and a decent portion of the chapters focus on what I would call ASA basics: naming interfaces, security zones, routing, etc.... where SECURE jumps right into the professional level topics.

    got a little sidetrack recently as the datacenter i work at is shutting down operations and i've been focused on picking out a new job and moving up to the Northern VA/DC area. i'm going to cram this weekend at work and do some final labbing and hopefully sit the VPN exam on monday or tuesday.

    864 and a pass. a lot of real out there questions in my opinion that weren't covered by the cisco press guide but obviously weren't terribly difficult to guess on. next up is IPS.

    Thanks, no experience with the Cisco IPS devices so I'm looking forward to diving in and see how they differ from the McAfee devices I've been using for the past year.

    Are you looking to rent rack time for IPS hands-on?
