    I was looking up information about inter-site ASA cluster yesterday and came upon Iris's networking fun blog. I was like, hey, I haven't been to techexams in a while. Anyway, on to status update.

    Some things I have hoped for didn't come through or came through not the way I expected in the new year. My current contract was extended by one more year so that's good. I started my own company and became Cisco partner. In the past few months I had to learn AWS to setup my infrastructure instead of renting a rack in a colo and learn a lot about 802.11. The company development process is slow and time consuming. If it starts going strong one day, than hopefully, I will switch to work for myself full time.

    You have one year after the first lab to try second time or your written will expire. I started reviewing two weeks ago and currently planning on late September/early October dates for the second attempt; haven't decided either NC or CA locations. Does anybody know how much it costs to reschedule the lab date if you already payed and it is less than three months left?

    To answer my own question. If you are within 90 days and want to reschedule the lab: 90 to 45 days - the fee is $350, 44 to 2 days - $500.

    So far reviewed the ASA and Firepower sections of my notes from Z2H class; watched Lab Minutes videos about FTD 6.1 and started going down the list of recommended articles and presentations from Cisco Learning study material (https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/co...study-material).

    In the first section, Perimeter Security and IPS, I haven't finished watching all presentations but would highly suggest to watch these two so far:
    1. Troubleshooting ASA FirePower. Seriously. This video is a gold nugget.

    2. ASA Clustering Deep Dive. Very good info and presentation on ASA clustering.

    This week was VPN review and started reading "IKEv2 IPsec Virtual Private Networks" to catch up on IKEv2 and FlexVPN. My gut tells me FlexVPN is like EZVPN all over again.

    I move through this book with the speed of old people fu... If you are like me, this Cisco Live video talks about the main features covered by the book - https://www.ciscolive.com/online/con...8&backBtn=true (1.5 hours). I will still finish the book in due time; just want to finish my review with AAA and infrastructure next week.

    Hey Kreken, that IKEv2 book was pretty hard for me to sit through too. Give the labminutes Flexvpn videos a try and lab it up while watching them.

    Good luck!
