Expanding skill set to SonicWall.
Well, I was taking a SonicWall class last week, and finally got around to taking the certification test earlier this evening. It was a 60 question exam, and I passed the exam with an 88%, not perfect but the passing score was an 80% plus I didn’t want to go back and double check all the questions I marked. Since the voucher code I was given provided me with 3 attempts I was not feeling the pressure. It wasn’t a very complex exam it had a mixture of basic IPSec, NAT, VPN functionality, but still not as in depth as what is covered in the CCNA/CCNA: Security exam if you’ve debugged a few IPSec VPN’s on a Cisco device you can definitely read the logs on a SonicWall device. The other half of the test was all related to SonicWall functionality its routing, security, & wireless features. If you’ve got some good security experience and can navigate your way through a SonicWall like the back of the your hand then I’d say go for it. Of course considering my existing number of certifications I have yet to find out if adding SonicWall to my credentials will pay off, only time will tell.
Now back to the 642-642 QoS Exam (Which I was studying for in the middle of the SonicWall class), let’s see if I can take & pass this exam by the end of the year!
