Just yesterday I succesfully passed the JNCIS-FWV certification exam, what a relief! 🙂

Now I’m a Juniper Networks Certified Internet Specialist for Firewall and Vpn products.

To who’s willing to pass this exam, I can suggest to stroongly study the 4 training course books:

  • INSG
  • NMTP
  • NAVI
  • INHN

And complete all the LABs… it’s very important.

But don’t sit for the exam before having taken the TestKing preparation exam:

JNCIS-FWV Exam preparation

I highly recommend it as it will give you much more confidence and it will possibly save you the money required to retake an exam just because of some stupid mistake.

Anyway, the exam is NOT easy.

There are many questions about Virtual Systems, definitely the hardest topic covered: practice helps a lot, especially with Admin permissions.
Some questions are related to debugging and troubleshooting, so be sure that you can read a DEBUG or a SNOOP output and understand what happens…

And be fast, I run out of time during the review of the marked questions, probably ’cause I’m not English mother tongue and I had to fully understand the tricky questions.


Good luck and let me know in the comments below how did it go!
