    Default INE Practice ROUTE exam just smoked me like a rolled blunt!

    I couldn't believe how gigantic the topologies were for this exam, and was completely fried after it and got up and let my brain defrag a bit, and came back to go through each question answer explained.

    After a few of the explanations by Keith Barker, this is like study gold. He does a flawless job of pointing out gotchas, introducing different ways of doing things, and how to zero in on what is important with the questions / answers.

    I think I am going to hit this exam daily, study any topics I am rusty on until go time a week from tomorrow, if you didn't know this existed within INE (must have all-access pass?) than you should check it out!

    Yes, their practice test is very good, probably harder than the real exam, at least I'm hoping. LOL

    I am glad at least one person got the reference! And yes, Keith Bogart is correct, I myself was just fried from work and a practice exam so for some reason I thought of Keith Barker

    I've come to terms with the fact that I can't transition from intense foundation studies to exam room with ROUTE, there is going to need to be a period of exam preparation / review, and it needs to be less intense than bull rushing my way through the initial video series.

    So I am going to push exam date out, slow it down a bit so I don't feel like I'm in a haze every day from constant work / study, and continue to hit practice exams and review topics I fall short at.

    That practice exam gave me a whole new respect for those who legitimately passed the exam, and whole new disdain for the coworker who puts CCNP R/S in his email signature when he never held the certification at any point in his life


    @ shortstop I sure as **** hope its easier as well, if Keith gets to draw traffic flows and circle routers we need to focus on in his practice exam videos, I should be able to draw on the monitor in the exam room!

    Hey have you went down the blueprint and gauge your knowledge on each section and subsection yet? How do you feel you stand so far? If you don't feel comfortable yet I'd say reschedule and hold on to your $300 a little longer lol

    In life you have to make your own opportunities. Don't let anyone stop you from your dreams to many negative people want you to fail because they can't succeed.
