    I started off with the OCG and videos from Kevin Wallace and Jeremy Cioara. Then about mid way through my studies I was given access to switch vids by INE and I just can't recommend those enough.

    I have nothing on TSHOOT just the OCG but that should be enough for going over any switching topics there for filling in any cracks in my knowledge.

    Multumesc Will post back once I've sat the exam no matter the result.

    Looked through your blog and I like your style.

    Might try to start one when I begin ROUTE studies etc. What I liked about this forum is the fact that people can participate so in the event that I run into a snag or anything, there's a higher chance someone could step in & help out.
    I'd definitely suggest a separate blog or webpage to demonstrate your studies and problem solving, I've had employers (hiring managers) read mine before they even looked at my resume, then finally spoke to me. If you can write formally, explain breaks and fixes through brief explanations and router output, they eat that stuff up.

    I never figured anyone would give a crap about me linking to it on linkedin, but if you can present it semi professionally, you can turn a web page into a portfolio / organized set of notes.

    I'd give you more rep for checking out my blog but it says I already got ya Hope you enjoy it and it helps out any struggling CCNP candidates (and to hold myself responsible for studying).

    3 mode days to go.. starting to get a little anxious. Been reviewing topics (structured and at random), drawing flash cards, watching vids and labing stuff up. Really hope to bag it on the first go.

    And we have ourselves a pass! (860 out of 1000)

    Some thoughts about the exam:

    - Some questions (just a few) are very oddly worded; I feel like they've been written by someone who's native language isn't English or simply wasn't sure about what he/she was asking questions about

    - Passing score is pretty high so you can't go into this one without either having years of experience in switching or doing some serious studying (or both)

    - I got a whole bunch of f'in trivia-like questions. I sat my share of Cisco exams until now but this one takes the cake..honestly, I understand sneaking one or 2 in there to confuse the candidate etc. but some of the questions I got really went deep into some topics that neither the OCG, INE course, CBT course or Kevin's course covered.

    - The sims were a blast (really enjoyed them). Very good / concise wording and requirements. Commands are limited but enough to do what's required of you. Tip my hat to Cisco for these.

    - I got an additional 30 minutes extension because English isn't my native language but I clocked out just when this extension period started (nature started calling ruthlessly so I had to wrap things up quickly either way ). If you're not too good with English you'll find yourself struggling with getting all of this done within the existing time constraints.

    I'm very happy to have managed a pass on this one On the other hand, I'm a bit concerned about ROUTE and the quality of the questions / wording seeing how ROUTE is almost twice the size of SWITCH (material wise)..

    Thank you!

    I'm really happy to have passed this one. Don't know why but I felt a lot better after passing SWITCH than I did any of the Cisco exams I took so far. I think mostly due to the fact that I feel as though switching has always been my weakest area.
