I am soooo happy that I passed the CCNP Switch exam! Thank you to all those who answered questions that I posted on this study journey!
As someone who came upon my Cisco path with little to no computer experience, I want to share a little about the things that I have encountered so far to encourage individuals that are at the beginning of their testing and career. I definitely needed the inspiration and I am always looking for more!
I am going to keep it as short as I can and straight to the point by addressing these topics in separate posts. This one is just about my personal study plan for certs. Next post will be about my Cisco career experience (https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/message/351160#351160).
Please note, I have often borrowed from the study plans of others so chew up the meat and spit out the bones.

How long it took to prepare for the Switch exam?
All my best to you!
Thank you! Everyone here knows the work it takes to gain command of this material. I am happy to celebrate with you.
It took me around two months of self-study along with on the job training.
I studied between 25 - 35 hours per week. I read the 642-813 CiscoPress Cert Guide and practiced w/the CiscoPress Lab Manual on 3600 and 7600 switches,also read CiscoPress BSCMSN (I keep forgetting the acronym- the Cert Guide from the previous Switch exam), the CiscoPress Switch Quick Reference, videos, etc.
Would you be so kind as to put together how you obtained your switch pass using the template on the following document? I would like to add your story to this document to assist others in their future cert endeavors.
