So, I just completed the new CCNP Cisco ROUTE exam while preparing to create the next CBTNuggets series...WOW! What a test. Simply put, if you don't really know what you're doing, you won't pass this test. What Cisco has been able to do with the simulation engine is amazing. Typically, the simluation engine for testing is limited to basic objectives (set the password to such and such, change logon banners, etc...). In this world, you'll experience powerful, multi-path simulation engines. No more bullet list of objectives to accomplish - you've got to pull your requirements out of a (fairly complex) scenario and put your ninja configuration skills to the test.
