The (e)scape goat


I will use the Rants category and  the EoDT (End of the day thoughts) label to vent some of my frustrations while I am learning.

In many cultures and religions confessing or venting has curative value, releases the stress and calms down the spirit. I think it is better to do it here on my blog rather than agitating the calm waters of various professional discussion boards. My rants will be related to life in general, learning and Cisco in particular. So watch for the above two categories.

A draft for the design of a **certification name here** study group

“No SOUP for you !”

These are my quick notes on the topic in the subject line. I just saved them here hoping that I will have time to implement this strange idea Smile

With this approach, if the group reaches a critical number of members, the study will be greatly accelerated by collective effort. Personally I find difficult to properly study a topic for two reasons:

  1. -lack of clear and concise materials
  2. -lack of clear list of items that have to be studied

A group effort might accelerate and help with these. The below are fragments of a larger design that I have had in mind [ the domain 1001qa.net does exist for a reason :-) ]. If I manage to get myself over this hump (for me) called CCIE R&S written, I might get to implement these other ideas, it depends on how the things work out for me in the next 4-5 months.
