Looks like I will be taking my CCNA exam on March 3rd. While I have been reading the books and checking out an online interactive course for awhile, I still feel I have a ways to go before I am really confident and ready for this exam. I think I know the stuff, but I want to KNOW the stuff.
The drop-dead date gives me something work against. Just like in college when you have that test magically show up on the calender two days after it was announced. Drop everything, and start working hard.
This actually may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. I know the odds are against me to actually pass the test the first time around (everyone has told me this at work…hey, I believe them). However, I want to at least hold my own and who knows, maybe I will surprise everyone including myself and actually pass on the first try.
I am setting aside two hours every night from now until March 3rd for studying. Some days, I maybe able to put in more time…but never less. I am determined to do a good job on this one. I may not in the end or I may, but I am determined to give it my best shot.
