    Default charging ahead.

    work has me sitting one more juniper exam (jncia-ssl) which i hope to have out of the way in the next few weeks. after that i decided its full steam ahead towards the ccnp: security with SECURE up first. i used some of the ccie level books when battling the ccnp and was wondering if there are ccie security books out there that would be a good second reference for any of the exams?

    I haven't finished the exam yet but I think these will be good additional reading:

    LAN Switch Security: What Hackers Know About Your Switches
    http://www.amazon.com/Cisco-Router-F...0297966&sr=8-2
    http://www.amazon.com/Router-Securit...ref=pd_sim_b_1
    http://www.amazon.com/Network-Securi...0298013&sr=1-7

    Of course the Cisco SAFE guides are good as well. The ASA book won't help you on this one.

    When do you plan on going through the CCNP:S track? It would be nice to get some people around here going towards this cert.

    I really considered buying those (CBTs). Hopefully I can make due without them....

    no date in mind yet i am about halfway through IPexpert's videos for this course and a lot of it is a rehash of the ccna: security with more depth so i'm feeling a lot more confident about it.

    the local testing center (a technical school) is on winter break but i'm looking to sit this exam next week or the week after if possible. spending the rest of the week labbing and reviewing some of the topics i have never touched (IOS IPS specifically).

    Good luck. Bring home a win. Did you do any 802.1x labs? I am thinking of taking this exam on the 14th.

    I am going to sit this cert next. I am probably around 98% ready for the FW test. I think my route is FW->VPN->SECURE->IPS. After I knock those out I will probably sit the CCNA:S just to make it official.

    sure did, no real 802.1x experience here but the theory and configuration is pretty straight forward so i don't think it'll be an issue.

    and SECURE is now finished! scored 928/1000. this exam was pretty cut and dry and didn't have nearly the depth the cert guide had me believe. looking forward to jumping into the FIREWALL exam.
