CCNP Security 300-206 (SENSS) – The After Math of the Exam – Useful Links

I finished last year with an incomplete challenge and lots of things in my to-do list. This exam was one of them, so I ended up moving lots of my objectives to 2018

I presented this exam at the beginning of November-17 and failed with few or a lot of incorrect questions. It really took me by surprise some of the things that I thought I knew needed more re-enforcing on my end. It is also very important to understand that these exams are also created with technology in mind, and many of them get to be un-updated for a while, so I was also tested on things that are End of Life (which I think got the best of me)

Leaving all the venting and bitching aside, I learned lots of things from when I failed it to last week that I finally passed it.

I made myself a list, which I think will become some sort of multiple posts in the future, but wanted to include few things that made the difference for me while studying for almost 2 months on and off.

One more thing, before we get to the list, a lab was a big differentiator, get used to the CLI, get used to the different configurations, and more important, have fun doing it.
