On last Friday, I passed both my final papers of 642-691 BGP+MPLS(1000/1000) & 642-871 ARCH(955/1000) for the CCIP and CCDP certifications at first attempt!! The feeling was just awesome for me to get Cisco certified for two titles within the same day! It took me five months to prepare for both certification studies with many hours of heavy reading (CiscoPress books) every day and lots of hands-on lab practices too. It was not an easy task for me, but with persistent hard work, self-discipline and self-confidence, I passed all the CCIP and CCDP exams in the end.
My next step is to look for a new job that matches my current qualifications before going for the CCIE written and lab-based exams.
Anyone who has questions about their CCNP/CCIP/CCDP studies, feel free to email me at
