Did the sims okay, for a change, but way too much emphasis on ipv6 multicasting and isis, where I spent the bulk of my study time on OSPF BGP and EIGRP.
Personally I have performed in this business for 25 years and never needed to know much about any of those others...
I wish they'd break the CCNP down into tracks releveant to people's particular jobs. BSCI is too much material for one sitting anyway but a lot of it is just plain not worth the time it takes to memorize if you are never going to get to use it on a daily basis.
Novell MCNE used to have like 5 or 6 tracks. The advanced cisco certs, like CCIE also have various specialties. CCNP should do likewise. After you get past the fundamentals of CCNA you should be able to get advanced certs but specialize in areas your employer will actually use....just a thought. General info on MC, ISIS, etc is understandably expected but the details I had on my exam were really ridiculous considering my job requirements will never use them.
