After careful look at JNCIE-DC exam objectives, I finally decided to go for it.
Planning to take the lab in August.
Why so soon? It’s simple. I just really want 2-digit number 🙂
In truth, the deciding factor is the size of DC lab blueprint – not so many new areas to study for me (given that I’m only recently passed my JNCIE-SP lab and therefore pretty confident in my knowledge of BGP, MPLS and QoS areas). And I already has some theoretical knowledge of DC topics after studying for JNCIP-DC exam (I will write sepparate post about my experience with this exam soon).
So I have just three big topics to study for lab:
The most complex thing about this exam – no dedicated study material is released yet (there is no bootcamp material, no iNETZERO workbook), so first thing that need to be done – collect all useful links to config guides, feature guides, whitepapers, etc for every topic in the lab blueprint.
In the next post I’ll write about the materials I have already read preparing for JNCIP-DC, and also will try to collect all useful links to documentation for further reading.
