With the help of the articles and comments posted here by Experts, and many proffessionals, I finally passed my first exam of the journey towards CCNP - ROUTE 642 - 902. It was awsome and very exciting, looked like the real environments specially the labs were really amazing. Those who are preparing for the ROUTE, I wish them all the best, just don't get hesisateted or confused, it's easy, you just have to work little harder :-)
It certiainly is an exam that rewards you with a sense of achievement when you pass! You feel like you've earned it. You may find SWITCH very different but well done on passing.
