Hi folks, great news! I passed the Cisco ISCW(642-825) exam!!!! I am so happy to have that one behind me! As some of you may know, I’ve been studying for this one for quite some time now. I’ve had a lot of projects going on so I really haven’t had the time to buckle down and get this one done. But now it is!
I have to say I really hated the material in the ISCW exam. It was really basic boring stuff (with the exception of MPLS). It also focused a lot on the SDM mangement tool to configure routers which is an old beast that just needs to die already. There are much better ways to configure a router as I’ve said before, and including this on the exam just made no sense.
There was lots of questions on areas such as PPPOE, VPN, network security etc. Now that this one is done it’s on to my last exam in the CCNP series, the ONT(642-845). I’ll keep you posted!
