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 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…………………….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
