JNCIS – Epic Win!
I quit my job…by design. I start a new gig on Tuesday and am getting back to the world of Cisco. As a last nod to Juniper, I decided to use an exam voucher I had and take the JNCIS-ENT exam. Easy pass.
The content was right along with the exam objectives, so there were no surprises. Most of the topics are things I’ve done a thousand times on the job. There were some things, though, that were beyond my experience. IS-IS was the big one. The very first question I got was about IS-IS metrics, and I had absolutely no clue what the answer was. Nor did I have any clue about the other IS-IS questions. I went 0-for-3 on those guys. The only other problematic topic was HA, which didn’t really surprised me. I was able to answer the VRRP questions, but I’ve never done any GRES, ISSUe, RTG, etc., at any point in my career. It wasn’t surprising that I didn’t do too well on those. Everything else was cake, and I only missed 6 questions in my comfort zone.
The exam was yet another top-notch effort from Liz and the group, but there was one questions that didn’t meet the standard set by the others. It was a VRRP question, but it used some awkward wording that that I read over and over. I just used the context of the questions to give an answer and moved on.
There was really nothing else to report. It was a great exam, so don’t be afraid to take it if it’s next on your list.
Cisco refresher courses questions my way.
