I have decided to pursue the new CCNP Service Provider certification as one of my goals this year. I have worked in the service provider space my entire career, but often in the transport and access layers rather than in layer 3 design and operation. Because I someday want to have a high level architect or engineer position I think it would be worthwhile to study and gain the certification. Even if I don’t make it all the way, I am sure to accidentally learn a lot along the way.
I have found that one of the best ways to learn is to take in information then do my best to share it with others. For that reason I decided to post my learning here for any interested parties to follow along. Hopefully you can glean some useful information as I learn and compile information here for studying. My strategy will consist of the following:
- Avoid paying Cisco thousands of dollars to take a class for this test
- Base my study around the exam blueprints as much as possible
- Utilize free Cisco documentation as much as possible
- Document as much of my study as possible on this website
My next post will be to begin picking apart topics from the SPCOR 350-501 test which you can find information on here.
