    Default Passed ICND2

    892/811.

    Had an email first thing this morning saying my exam was cancelled. (Apparently the test centre guy fractured his foot.) So I call Pearson Vue to see if any other test centres could book me in today. Nearest one was Wolverhampton. (I work quite a while away, so a bit of a drive :')

    So yeah, anyway. One of the most difficult exams I've ever taken. Really horrible experience. Felt like it was 50/50 by the end of the exam, but I made it. Scored pretty low on every domain besides routing and switching (which I got 100% on) so considering together they make up over half the exam, it was obviously enough to get a good pass mark. Elated at the end when I saw the score. 4-5 questions that I straight up didn't know what it was talking about (or even referring to at one point). So yeah. Big time relief. Very happy even after a long drive home.

    I used Todd Lammle's book, Packet tracer & Boson. Boson, again is what got me over the line. The simulations are just so good for prepping for that portion of the exam, and it actually gave me a few answers that weren't in Todd Lammle's book. The book as well was outstanding btw, mapped to almost every exam objective, although missed a bit of detail in a couple of areas. It definitely has enough CLI config in it. You don't need to go any deeper than his labs/instructions. Also, packet tracer is more than enough for labbing. Missing a few things, but they can easily be memorised. I always type them in anyway just to get the muscle memory going.

    Had a change of plan, and I'll be working on 70-533 for my mcse next, before finishing off the year with 3-4 linux exams.

    I'd say time for a beer, but I don't drink.. Time for a sparkling water haha.

    Thanks guys.

    @TheComputerPlumber - I highly recommend the Boson practice exams. They're well worth the money.
