Well I just took the last of 4 exams for the NP today, which was the ISCW for me, and I passed 924/1000! Finally got it out of the way after a couple hiatus's the past 1.5 years (mostly work related).
Looking back, it seems like it wasn't all that difficult, and I should have pushed myself harder to get it finished sooner. But now I think I'll go for the CCIP, and I'll be sure to not give myself any slack going into it.
Once the CCIP is out of the way, it'll be time to climb the mountain that is the CCIE R&S!
