What is the canceling policy for Genius? I am in the process to start preparing to take the JNCIP, and aren't sure if the training content here is sufficient.

Preparing for the JNCIP exams is tough.  The topics and questions are the harder ones.  And in the Juniper certification process the only 100% complete single source of information are the courses that are associated with each exam on the exam outline pages.  Basically these courses are specifically written to cover the topics in the linked exam.


Naturally, taking the course or purchasing those courseware books is too expensive for most of us.  So we have to find other options to get the material.


The outine of what we need is there on the exam page origanized in topic and sub-topic.  From here we need to hunt down the information.


I use Junos Genius in two ways.  Naturally the sample exam helps me get a feel for where I am weak.  I'll take that after some brief study to get a feel for the focus I need.

The second way is to search out the videos posted relating to the other topics on the exam list.  This provide good detail of the concepts.


The rest of the material I get from the documentation are by topic.  I use google for the topic with a restriction of the site.  Then add to the topic the work example to get find the configuration examples.

isis example

These will then fill in the remaining details I need to cover the topics in full.  I use the example pages to create my own labs using virtual router routing instances on my SRX devices.

And there is a free tier on Junos Genius so you can sign up and confirm if the red restricted sections are enough value for you to want to unlock them with the subscription.


I wish the coursware was more affordable.  Or that real study guides were created out of them to prepare for the exams.  But I do find that Junos Genius is a help over and above the documentation.

Thank you, Steve.


It's also important to note that we recently made all of the Learning Byte videos free within Junos Genius. A Junos Genius Plus subscription will provide you with practice tests that will help you to gauge your understanding of the topic matter, but you should also expand the number of resources used as Steve suggests.


We will soon be adding additional exam prep resources to Junos Genius that will be of great value to our certified community.
