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!
Well I was doing some digging and I came across this thing called The Bryant Advantage. Chris Bryant is a certified CCIE and he created his own study material which is 100% legit and is great for studying for the exam. He also provides rack time if you need it.
So I figured I’d take the plunge and I bought the Bryant Advantage materials with the rack time. I have to say the material is just great! I’ve been reading his ebook and he really does a great job of explaining everything. Also Chris is extremely helpful for any questions you might have. I can highly recommend buying his material to prepare for the CCNP.
