Starting My CCNP R&S Recertification Journey

As I mentioned in a previous blog post before jumping into the CCIE studies I want to retake the CCNP Route & Switch exams. To refresh your CCNP you only need to take one of the three exams.

Here is the breakdown of the exams. Each exam is $300:

300-101 ROUTE Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)
300-115 SWITCH Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)
300-135 TSHOOT Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (TSHOOT)

My plan is to take all 3 exams. 1) to refresh the CCNP and 2) prep myself for the CCIE written exam.

Today I’m starting my studies for the CCNP ROUTE 300-101, I will be reading, “Official Cert Guide by Kevin Wallace.”

There is a total of 767 pages of material to go through which are broken down into 18 chapters. I am planning on going through 2 Chapters a week:

Chapters Weeks Dates Progress
Chapters 1&2 Week 1 April 9th – 15th
Chapters 3&4 Week 2 April 16th – 22nd
Chapters 5&6 Week 3 April 23rd – 29th
Chapters 7&8 Week 4 April 30th – 6th
Chapters 9&10 Week 5 May 7th – 13th
Chapters 11&12 Week 6 May 14th – 20th
Chapters 13&14 Week 7 May 21st – 27th
Chapters 15&16 Week 8 May 28th – June 3rd
Chapters 17&18 Week 9 June 4th – June 10th

I will have a separate post on labs and other material I will be using to for prep. Lets get this started…………………….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
