Congratz! Do you feel OCG Boson and Udemy's Chris Bryant's covers all the material in the exam?

Combined they do cover the exam... but you should really try to get all the sources you can. I don't think I could have passed with just those unless you memorize everything word for word. Even then, it might be a bit short. Diversify your materials and get as many points of view and contexts that you can to really get the information down solid.

If you had tot study it again what would you do differently?

More labs. More focus on ESA and Firepower.

When are you coming out with a CCNA-Wireless practice test?

[–]BosonMichaelSenior Content Developer, Boson Software 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We had one, once upon a time. There was very little demand for it, so we discontinued it when the exam was updated.

Congratulations! I'm just finishing up CCNA, testing icnd2 on Wednesday. If I may ask, how did you get to your current position working with Cisco routers, switches and ASAs in particular? Its something I've considered exploring but need to get my foot into networking first. 6 months in help desk now so hoping CCNA + some experience can get me closer to the equipment. Just wondering what your path was like.

To get the current position? It's been a long road of helpdesk jobs and pitching in with Networking whenever and wherever I could. Applying to a ton of open network positions available, even if just for the interview experience, and a stoke of luck.

How difficult is it compared to normal ccna?

[–]Tech_Guy_MattCCNA R&S, CCNA Security, Network+, Security+, A+[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The CCNA R&S is very clear on the objectives. The CCNA Sec is a bit more open ended so it adds quite a bit of extra material and study time to get such a broad scope of items under your belt.

Are you attending WGU by any chance? I'm working through ICND2 and will be taking this class after my Linux+ certification classes. Just wanted to know if you are taking it through WGU, if you thought the provided material was enough.

Congrats on your victory! I'm hoping I can pass my 2nd attempt in a week. I will have to check out the portable command guide. Thanks for the tips.
