    Will take ONT next week, then ISCW next month.

    I am using CBT nuggets, mindtechcom.com rack rentals, hands on with 4 routers (en route to the house now), cisco press books, and lots of caffeine. In about 2 weeks it's no more CCNP study for an hour a day..it'll be more like 4 hrs/day..gonna be brutal.

    Total immersion - the best method, IMHO!

    That def is the best method. I'm using the cisco library, the video mentor, and most likely Transcenders.

    just finished the BSCI Cisco press book, I'm trying to figure out what to do next for my studies. Going to buy CBTNuggets CCNP package, debating buying a real 2500$ lab or just getting a sim.

    Don't get a sim. Sims are not good for CCNP. You need all the debugs to get a good grasp on the material. Plus it sucks troubleshooting for an hour just to find out its a bug....
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    With a little shopping and some luck, and lots of time spent on ebay bidding, you could save some
    money by building your own. Or, for that price, you could toss in a 3550 and some Fast Ethernet
    interfaces for the 3600s.

    If you don't mind paying for the convenience of an all-in-one-kit -- it isn't bad.

    I got my 3750s from that seller and I'm quite happy with them (and the price was really good)

    Looks to be about $600-700 over priced for what they're giving you, and I don't think Internetworkexpert would be too happy about him giving out copies of their workbooks.

    I'd guess he is a "reseller" -- so his cost would be less than the $250 retail price.

    IE is good about tracking down the people who blatantly sell pirated copies, and this guy has been
    doing it for a while. But I would ask him if the workbook is covered under the IE upgrade protection
    plan.

    okay, ive started my purchasing:

    2x2950s
    1x2522(found this cheap!)
    1x2509(also pretty cheap)
    1x3640 w 1E2W and 4A/S and 12.4 Enterprise IOS(ouch, but found a cheaper source after I bought this one, hopefully want to get 6 total, 5 more to go)

    ccna - now forgotten; working on relearning it with BSCI
    #40
    How's everyone progressing given the end of the year is pretty close now?

    I've made zero progress. But now I'm finally in a position to start studying. Should have the rest of the years network optimisation planned soon. Then I'll just be making other people work and mostly studying I hope. Will set up the lab today.

    My plan is to take BSCI mid-December. Work are paying for it at least so that's something in return for being shafted for the last year. Then with study plan in place I hope to charge through the other exams and the CCIE written.

    With 2 exams already done, I will begin BCMSN next week, and after I will do BSCI. Maybe in January I will be CCNP certified. But also I want to do the CCNA:Security soon because after the ISCW and Security+ exams, a lot of study time would be reduced.
    So this spring, with CCNP, CWNA, CCNA:Security. Security+ and 3 years of experience in network/telecommunication will be a good time for change job and increase my salary.

    Good find, thread from the dead!


    Well I finished up my CCNP this year. Ended up being a solid 6-8 months total but well worth it.

    Heres to '09 CCIE or bust!

    I started studying in January, failed BSCI February, studied a bit more and passed it in March, then moved onto BCMSN and got that one in May, ISCW followed in July, and tomorrow I take the ONT.

    I said in another thred that I've found the ONT the most difficult to learn, mainly because I don't do a lot of QOS in my job, but the other exams covered topics that I work on every day.

    So Im sat here reading through the exam cert guide and hoping that tomorrow it's a good day.

    Starting CCNP Network Academy in 2 days, I've started building my home lab (matter of fact I just got through "breaking" my 3640 because the distributor left the config on it) and LOTS and LOTS of OJT!!! I might pick up the CBT Nuggets at a later point. Hopfully I can have my NP done by this time next year! I'm going to try and pass the tests as I pass the courses.
