Cisco Networking

I have not added to this blog for a while and I thought its high time I did. as you know I had my TMA from TM257 back and scored 99%, I ended up completing the Introduction to Networking and passed that with merit!

I started Routing and Switching and to be honest it has been interesting and not boring as I predicted it would be. I needed to finish chapters 1 - 4 so I could answer question 1 on TMA2 it was just to calculate my average score for the chapter exams, that was the last question I had to do as I finished the rest of the TMA a while ago.

I have now submitted my TMA nearly 2 weeks early which will give me time to concentrate on TT284, I am a bit behind with that now as I've been concentrating on TM257, but should not take me long to catch up, I will also need to start the TMA number 3 as that needs to be handed in on the 14th March. I find TT284 harder than Cisco Networking, I really don't know why I have to do this course as art of my networking degree. I don't want to become a developer my brain does not really think that way. So I need to spend more time on the TMA's for TT284 as they are harder and involve a lot of coding, or to be honest just amending code the OU have written and I need to make it work.

I am still waiting for the result of TMA 2 for TT284, I hope I have done OK I was not impressed by my report to be fair, report writing is not my forte. I will of course let you know my score good or bad.

On a personal note, my partner, our friend and I have booked tickets to go to New York in July 2019, I can't wait and I'm really looking forward to it. it would have been the first time I have been out of the country in over 20 years! so I'm a bit apprehensive but excited at the same time.

TM257 Cisco Networking

I've spent most of today studying the Cisco networking module, and to be fair I am enjoying it, I have explored the netacad site and there are some useful resources that help me to learn. such as flash cards, and quiz's (which you can take as many times as you like) for me, it is such an invaluable teaching aid.

I did the practice quiz for Chapter 1 and I got 27/30 so I thought I would do the exam next, as there are online exams for each chapter. I went onto the exam page and it says that you have 1 hour to complete the examination, so I was thinking how hard is it going to be and how many questions are there?. I started the exam and to be honest, the questions were quite easy, I finished the exam in about 15 minutes and scored 93.9% so that's good news!

I am going to spend the day tomorrow on TT284 and try and complete week 2 of that in one day!
