Thankfully I passed BCMSN. Thank god. It was driving me nuts.
Passed with an 864, which im satisfied with.
I am thinking about my study technique for the ISCW. I need to see if I can structure it somewhat better than BCMSN, where I ended up reading some topics over and over again. I think one of the things I will do better is to lab every chapter out more throughly to get it under my nails. Security has not been my strong side so far, and I need to ramp that up for the ISCW.
Books are on the way, but for the ISCW and ONT there are no official study guides, which is bit of a bummer.
More on all this later
I am trying to get some reading done, even though its extremely hard when im still sick.
However, I only got about 5 chapters left in the examination guide. hopefully I can finish them soon, and do some of the last case studies in the lab book. I really want to get this BCMSN out of the way, its starting to get on my nerves. I dont feel prepared enough for the exam though, I dont know why. Ive read almost all the material available, and can sketch out switched networks and stuff. I guess there are just some details thats missing here and there.
I am going to try and finish up the security-in-campus part tonight. Hope is to be done with all the stuff by sunday. That is, if I dont have to many down times due to antibiotics and other medicine intake.
Sorry for the non-posts. I am quite sick at the moment. Some stomach issues that apparently takes its time to settle. I was hospitalized 10 days ago, but got out the next day. Since then, I have not been to work or been doing anything at all actually.
The only thing I have accomplished is watching alot of episodes of X-Files, but I would much rather be my normal self again, or at least not sick. The doctors say to give it time, but they will put me on antibiotics if it doesnt help by wednesday.
I will try and get some reading done when my state permits me.
