Hi folks, so I passed yet another Cisco exam. This is the 642-383 exam. This exam is specifically written by employees of companies that are Cisco partners. It is the Cisco Express Foundations Field Engineer exam and is a requirement for certain levels of partner status.
The exam was infinitely easier than writing the CCNA and anyone who passed the CCNA should have absolutely no problem writing this exam.
There are two other exams that a company needs to write as well, the similar one for sales people and there is another one for system engineers. All three exams together are part of a partner level requirement for Cisco.
On the bright side of all this exam writing, I like these requirements even though they are a chore to get through. Why is that? Because it validates a companies ability to provide Cisco services to the industry. It’s a great idea! Now if only they got people to double check the mistakes in their exams…. 🙂
