    I took the 642-902 today after 8 months of (on and off) study, and passed with 871/1000.

    This was by far the hardest exam I ever took, and I could have sworn I failed before getting the results...

    Now time for a week of rest before I try to tackle SWITCH :D

    Well Done Simon, the ROUTE is a fair exam, tough but fair, one of those exams which is well written with questions that do make you stop and think about the possible answers.

    Definitely tough. As said, I really thought I didn't make the 80%.
    Five labs in total and the first one took me 25 minutes. The other ones were fairly straightforward.

    Thank god I get 30 minutes extra for being a non-native English speaker :twisted:

    Wouldn't have made it without the CCNP course at commsupport! :biggrin

    Having a deadline is a good motivation to get on with it yes, :)

    Yes, make sure you know your EIGRP and OSPF and redistribution between them :) And don't forget about the VPN topics, I'm sure it cost me a few points...
