CCNP SWITCH v2

CCNP SWITCH 300-115 Exam Test Date: May 2015    October 17, 2015  November 2015 December 12, 2015, February 27, 2016, March 26, 2016, April 2, 2016

 

Mission Accomplished! 811/900

 

Strategy:

Review exam blueprint and I plan to read the chapters from the QRG on the topic, watch Udemy videos, and then do labs from the Lab manual related to those exam objectives.  I am going to use Cisco official documentation to fill the gaps. Using my training schedule below, I will assess my understanding a topic on a 1- 6 scale. The idea is to match the numbers for each section.

2nd round: Labs, Labs, Labs

3rd round: Practice Exam questions from Cisco(Measure Up) and Boson

Training Material:

CCNP SWITCH 300-115 Quick Reference Guide – Primary Text

Cisco SWITCH Lab Manual- Primary lab book

101 CCNP Labs by Paul Browning – Supplemental Labs

GNS3 Vault Labs- Supplemental Labs

Cisco Documentation – For technology deep dives

Udemy- CCNP SWITCH with Chris Bryant- Primary Video
