Am I a Florida Cisco Certification Junkie?
I’m wondering if I’m becoming a certification junkie. After studying for the Cisco CCIE lab exam ( and failing ) I am just in the habit of studying now. While I want to attempt the lab exam again, I need a bit of a break and so some ‘light certifications’ seems to be just what I need.
I took the CCNA Security exam today and in conjunction with the work I do on Cisco ISR routers ( 2821 or such ) I found it pretty easy after the lab attempt. I’m thinking I’m going to follow up with CCDA -> CCDP since they are one exam each. Then maybe hit CCNPx2 with a CCNP security.
After this I want to attempt the CCIE practical exam again for routing and switching. I am confident I could pass the CCNA voice/wireless too, but it’s a matter of dollars spent for now.
Must. Check. All. The boxes!
