Self-studying can be so difficult and frustrating at times! I’ve been trying to configure one of my Cisco routers (aka networking computers) and it’s taking me a long time to get it done. I typed in one dodgy command (just ONE) and the router decided to crash! I hate computers! 😀 Well, I don’t really, but they can be very tricky at times. I’ve managed to bring it back to life, so hopefully I can finish the configuration sometime soon.
Studying by yourself is a great way to learn because you can do things in your time and from the comfort of your own home. However, you do need help from others, and I am very grateful to all the people who post their questions and answers on internet forums.
There are no new problems in this world; there is always a solution out there. I’ve read through so many networking websites since I started my studies, and I have always found an answer on one of them. Thank God for the internet!
I’ve finally chosen the date of my I.T. exam. I kept postponing it and postponing it, but I can’t put it off for much longer. This exam (Cisco CCNP Switch 642-813) is only the first of three exams that I have to take.
Once I pass all three exams, I will move up the certification ladder (from my current CCNA certification to a CCNP one). Basically, I will learn how to configure the equipment that is used to connect large organisations to the internet.
I feel a bit silly, to be honest. I remember having to take so many exams at university, and here am I, making a big deal over ONE single exam! Dear oh dear!
Anyway, I’ve now chosen the exam date and I went for September 27th, which is exactly a month from now. It’s also the birthday of a close friend of mine, so hopefully it will be a day of double celebration.
I’m glad that I now have a deadline that I can work towards. I definitely achieve more things when I set myself goals and targets. I’m going to have to start writing a daily to-do list to get myself more focused on the things I want to achieve.
