I sat the CWDP exam today. I didn’t really expect to pass, but I felt like I should give it a shot to keep the momentum going, and I was pleasantly surprised to walk away successful!

I was due to renew my CWNA in June, so this is a better refresh than doing the CWNA again. I had to make a conscious effort to step away from Wi-Fi for a while to complete my CCIE (R/S), but I am glad to be back on wireless.

If you’re working on completing the CWDP certification, I highly recommend the CWDP study guide from the PW0-250 version of the exam, from 2011 (Amazon: here)¬†This is the second newest version and includes a much higher level of detail than the current book. Frankly, I didn’t feel like the current study guide covered nearly enough info to feel like I would have earned the cert.

So… onto CWAP! I think CWAP will help fill in a lot of the gaps I feel like I have in my understanding; and I think it will align well with the way I think and troubleshoot. I’m looking forward to spending more time with some PCAPs!
