Having completed my CCNA and all my classes (and then some) at WGU I decided to jump in on my CCNP studies. For those of you that don't know, the CCNP consists of three exams: CCNP ROUTE, CCNP SWITCH, and CCNP TSHOOT. It's common practice to start with ROUTE/SWITCH and the do TSHOOT last.
I decided to start with ROUTE. Why? Because a friend of mine posted a pretty great OSPF topology he was running in GNS3 and I wanted to try my hand at it. Here is my study plan so far:
- CBT Nuggets Videos for CCNP ROUTE
- Cisco Press CCNP ROUTE Book, by Wendell Odom
- GNS3 Labs
- Online Research
That sums up my current plans for Cisco Certifications. I have around 40 days left in my college semester and after that things will be hectic for a while as I try to get another 20+ credits out of the way.
