Passed QoS and got my CCIP!
Well after 7 months of studying and 2 exams later I’ve finally obtained my CCIP! When I initially thought about going after my CCIP I said this shouldn’t be too bad after going through Routing TCP/IP Volume II, BGP Design & implementation, and half way through MPLS fundamentals (See my Library page on the left for links) I was really starting to feel it. I kept moving along and passed the 642-691 I got a little bit of hope and jumped right into QoS. The funny thing about QoS was I didn’t realize how much I really new about it, nor did realize how much more I could do with it. QoS certainly was an interesting topic to learn, and I am sure I’ll be learning even more about it as time goes on.
Now that I’m done with my CCIP, I think I am going to take a small break from studying. I am going to focus back on my blog (So hopefully I will get some more updates out) and I am going to start building my own home lab for whenever I decide to start studying for my CCIE (not sure when but I will pursue that eventually). Not a bad way to start the new year right?
