I apologize for not posting to the blog a bit earlier, but wanted to post and let you know that I have completed my journey back to CCNA certification. I learned several lessons along the way that I hope will serve me moving forward.
1. These aren't the exams I remember from long ago and as such I needed to study a lot more than I did in the past for the exam prep. I learned a lesson about skimming areas that I thought I was familiar with.
2. I found it helpful to study in different ways for the retest. I used some flash cards, practice tests, and I also used a sim environment to practice some things that I was less familiar with like Frame Relay.
Where will my certification journey lead me next? Likely back to the security space where I belong for now.
It's been fun, but CCNA-Security is calling...
