Alright! Just excited to post my success yesterday. Nearly 3 years in the works and I passed my 70-298 exam! I am officially an MCSE with Security specialization. I know it’s an old cert. But really it was soooo much information and it took years to get the experience in ISA, VPN, IAS, Security Templates, Services optimization, Exchange, PKI, IPSec so on.
But I got it! Next step is to get more Cisco. Hoping to knock out CCNP’s Route exam by the end of the year. I’ve already put 200+ hours into studying last year. I quit when they changed the exams out. So hopefully 3 months is enough time. Anyhow, 3 months, 3 years. Keep moving forward and hope it pays off someday.
