Well I just got back from Cisco Networkers. It was held in Orlando, FL this year. It was an excellent conference with over 10,000 attendees. I took and passed 642-892 CCNP Composite as well as 642-873 Designing Cisco Network Service Architecture. This gives me Cisco Certified Design Professional.
I was ecstatic when I passed 642-873. Exams are half price at Networkers and I figured I would check this exam out. I had read the 642-871 book and felt I had enough knowledge to give it an honest effort. I’ll be taking 642-825 and 642-845 in the near future to complete my CCNP. Next is either CCVP or possibly CCDE.
I managed to make it to some excellent sessions this year. One of which I was able to answer some questions for the session as well as get a book about ASA’s for free from the presenter.
