Word of advice, unless you have a year of experience don't opt for the ccnp. You will be over qualified for entry levels, but not qualified experientially for the ccnp level jobs.

Edit: What you can do is get additional lateral certifications such as CCNA: Security and the like.

Thanks, I figured I would wait a bit before CCNP, as I've heard others say that as well.

Not sure what to do after CCNA. Was thinking Security or maybe a Juniper cert

All depends what you wanna do. If I was you I'd start learning to program. Or maybe learn wire shark, or Linux, or or or...

Do you think that Odom's book lacked some knowledge? Is there anything you would recommend others to take a look at, outside what is covered in the book?

No, the only question I saw on my exam that I hadn't seen in his book was one about 6to4 tunneling. Other than that, everything was covered. That might have been a beta question anyway.

On my CompTIA exams, there were like five questions per test that seemed to come out of left field while the CCENT was more straightforward

Hey CaiusBard, How many subnetting questions were asked of you? And what do you mean navigate the running config?
