    Got another Cisco Cert

    So if you've ever taken an IT certification test, specifically Cisco, you can understand how much they can suck.

    And to make matters worse, I was slated to take 3 tests and get 3 diff certs this month... nooot gonnnna happpen with the wedding so close. Anywho, Wednesday about 11pm I decided I wasn't ready for the vcp5, so I'm like, I'm a boss, I'll just do the ccda... I already have my other networking cisco certs, no prob.... yea...anywho, flipping out over trying to learn and memorize a bunch of crap in a day and a half....

    Needless to say, I am a boss, and passed that sucker.

    Huge weight lifted..... going to be happy in vherf tonight lol

    Nice Job Dan! I took a few certification tests over the years. I fell flat on my face with CCNA though. I was able to pass a Cisco partner course but even that was a challenge...Doing the networking stuff was easy, it was the tests that sunk me...

    Nice Job. I have MS MCSA, MCP under it, ya know, network+ CompTIA A+ Bla Bla .. Also did Novell CNA.
    I can appreciate your accomplishment, believe me. I was going grab the Cisco cert. But as an instructor, I just trained others. Strange huh ?
    I think a lot of people jump right into Cisco, it can be tough. We would stack nics in Windows servers and run RRAS. Then once they knew routing tables, filters/ports, subnets, DMZ's. Then all they had to know was how to tell Cisco what they wanted to do in "Cisco Language" with startup.cfg, terminal tool and editor.

    I don't use any of it much any more. I am in the technology field, but a different position. But I remember those cert tests, and they were nothing to laugh at. I used to tell my kids when they would ask about the tests " when you are ready , it will pass you. "

    So Congrats.Good Job,. If you didn't light up yet, what are you waiting for?

    I took Sylvan's TCPIP twice. Think I needed 650 and got 648 ! the first time ARGH !
    Blew it out of the water a few weeks later though.

    Thanks, Got my ccna years ago, along with my ccnp, recently was the ccna voice, hardest was the np, though trying to push something out in such a short period of time was the killer.

    I'm not sure what I'll smoke, though figure I'll make it fun and let others pick for me out of a baggie I fill up. After my daughter goes to bed.

    Depends what you like.... networking is it's own beast, as is, microsoft desktop, microsoft server, or unix/linux administration.

    Mind you most of those will require you to do weekend work to do patching and stuff, network doesn't usually, so that's one reason I like it. The best way to be awesome at what you do in IT is not just focus on your said field, but diversify into the others to give yourself a better understanding of all.
