Hi folks, I wrote the BSCI 642-901 exam (one of the exams for the CCNP) and I passed it today!!!! YAY! I can’t tell you how happy I am that I was able to nail this exam! This exam focused on routing and boy was it hard. This now stands as the hardest Cisco exam I’ve ever written!
Ok I obviously can’t divulge any information about the exam but I can tell you that my study focused areas really paid off as I had mentioned before. I actually found the SIMS easier than the actual questions. It seems the multiple choice questions were really geared to trick you. There always seemed like there was two really close answers but only one was right.
Make sure you know all your routing protocols really well and make sure you practice doing lots of lab sims. I used the Boson netsims to simulate it combined with rack time and that worked really well for me. Also I know I said this before but the Bryant Advantage was a huge help.
