Yes! I finally knocked one pin down! This one definitely felt good. I struggled through Pearson Vue practice tests for a few weeks prior to the test. That definitely helped. I personally thanked Mr. Wendell Odom himself on Twitter for putting out his books and study materials.
What’s next? Good that you asked. I have just completed studying for my first chapter in CCNA Voice. I can dual track CCNA Vocie with ICND 2 all before September. This is definitely exciting. I always felt as if I somehow just took that first step and passed one certification, the rest would come flowing in. I now have a method and mechanism for coping with this madness of Cisco testing. That is,
- Read chapter through once and highlight things to commit to learn.
- Then, re-read chapter but making flashcards of all the highlights.
- While making flashcards, take screenshots of diagrams and drawings with my own annotations on PDF. Clip these into Evernotes and carry them with me everywhere in the Cloud.
- Finally, get some sort of lab running because I struggled with a simlet question on the CCENT and it can get harder when the voice test comes around.
When I was done with my CCENT, I saw another person behind me typing furiously into a simlet CLI on some kind of voice configuration. It feels so good to see I am part of a group of people so dedicated to improving and learning.
Please look for a blog post from me with my Quizlet flashcard links. Everyone can use them if they sign up for free I was out on Saturday night and was studying for my CCENT on my iPhone. Super nerdy!
