Hi folks! As you can probably tell from the title of this post, I passed the BCMSN! Yay! It was a hard exam but not as hard as the BSCI in my opinion. Before I had written either exam, I had heard that the BSCI was 10 times harder than the BCMSN. I don’t think that’s quite correct. It was probably more like 2 times as hard as it.
In any case, they both are difficult exams! The BCMSN had lots of different questions on redundancy, voip, wireless, STP, inter-vlan routing etc. Basically all the stuff they list on the exam guide in the Cisco exam curriculum on their website.
What did I use to study? Well I used what I learned from Bryan Baize at the Boson CCNP bootcamps and I also used the Bryant Advantage study guides again along with the normal Cisco self study guides. Combining all of that together got me the information I needed to pass!
Two more exams left in the CCNP for me. Next exam up will be the ISCW (Implementing Secure Converged Wide Area Networks) 642-825. Wish me luck!
