CCNP Enterprise 300-410 (ENARSI) Exam – Created new category for exam topics, got about 50% through the Blueprint!

CCNP

At a high level view of all CCNP Enterprise Specialist exams I figured the 300-410 would be my next Cisco exam to sit, I hadn’t set a date to begin studying for it at all, but in looking at the Blueprint tonight I found the last month of studies in VPN Technologies has covered 20% of the exam Blueprint already (VPN Technologies).

Note – This exam is inherited if you pass “TSHOOT” as part of your CCNP R/S certification, so I am not going after this exam to pass, but did categorize topics properly so people looking to sit this exam can find some topics covered!

After a decade of Route / Switch labbing, I’ve decided to go full on ENAUTO 🙂

The actual Blue Print in the topics below will be covered topics, I have a few I won’t bother to revisit as I covered them beyond thorough for TSHOOT, however anything not marked as “covered” will be covered again on here to knock the rust off.

Section 1 appears to be ROUTE all over again, back on the Grind already! 🙂
