I want to learn BGP in depth to crack interviews at big 4 companies. Where would be a good place to start and would be great if you can share some links.
I am all up to date with CBT, INE, Cisco Papers but in interviews they end up asking more, especially as the RPs are converging to BGP only, and I feel like it’s high time I master BGP.
We drew straws at work today, we needed an additional CCNP R&S for partner/contract compliancy.
Sadly, I lost and have accepted i'll go for CCNP. I've always appreciated the Reddit communities around Cisco certifications, so i'll definetly be lurking a lot and hopefully post occassionaly.
I know the CCNP ROUTE exam is a complete pain. I was therefore contemplating wether to start with SWITCH instead. I feel like if I got an easy win, it might further motivate me to study for the ROUTE exam. This is not to say that the SWITCH exam is a piece of cake, but it's arguably a lot better and practical than ROUTE in my opinion.
I am however not sure if this is a smart approach. I don't know if there are dependencies between ROUTE and SWITCH?
I've asked around but nobody really seems to know, everyone always starts off with ROUTE.
Does anyone have some experience with taking SWITCH before ROUTE?
