Round 2

Ok, so in the past 2 months I got married, went on a honeymoon and came back to a hectic work schedule, one thing I haven’t done much of is study.

However in the last two weeks I have gotten back into a groove and I have been pouring through ICND2 third edition by Wendel Odom.

I’m feeling better about the knowledge the second time around and this book is very good.  I decided to put my notes into “mind maps” and it seems to be working out well.

I am about halfway through the text and I am aiming to have the exam done by the end of November, I will be spending the next week or two finishing off reading the book/labbing so I can book my next attempt…I’ll post another update when I have confirmed a date.

Just in case anyone is interested or wants to take a look here are the “mind maps” I have created so far, hopefully they will make sense and maybe even help solidify some concepts for others as well.  Beware they were created in Visio and are in that native format.
