In fact, the experience of so many ancestors' posts over the years has already made CCIE RS Lab's preparations clear, but everyone's preparation methods are different, and I will not describe them in detail here. I am only here to provide some non-technical issues for your reference because, in this SARS stressful moment, the pressure you face is not only the exam but also the environmental threats around you. CCIE RS Lab one month before the exam:
The lab is preparing for the week before the exam:
1. Collect Pre-Lab archaeological questions from various educational centers. When you get to this section, K information is also limited. It is better to look at the direction of the questions in the archaeological questions and some IOS features. Maybe you will not be able to get it!
Lab prepared the night before:
1. Go shopping in the local city, or go to the movies to relax.
2. Don't go back to the hotel too early. Few people take the exam for the first time. The lab can fall asleep very early. Most of them will not sleep well. Go back to rest before 12 o'clock, take a hot bath or drink hot milk. Maybe Can help sleep.
3. Try not to eat too much oil, so as not to affect the physical condition of tomorrow.
The lab is preparing for the day:
1. If you are in a position where the testimony is unclear or you are not sure, ask questions immediately. If you don't ask, it is your loss. Don't forget your registration fee. (Hong Kong's production is good, very patient, and people are very good, I ask More than 10 questions, he is very patient to answer me, even if I can't answer my question positively, I will remind me of the general meaning, I found two problems.)
2. At noon break, eat a five-point full, drink plenty of water, go to the toilet to prepare for the afternoon!
3. Try to complete most of the config before noon (at least the part you will be. I spent more than two hours in the config this time, more than three hours of debugging)
4. After completing the config, review the topic at least three times, carefully compare each routing on the router and test whether it can be pinged. Try not to make major changes in the last hour (especially ACL and Filter). Try to check and match the question as much as possible to meet the requirements until the end of the exam (but I will hand over to 3:00 pm because I have been inspected for four hours and I am very tired...)
As for the preparation of the book, Cisco Press's CCIE Practical Studies, Volume I is, of course, a must-see (if the book is clear, plus every case has a real machine practice, I think 60 points is not a problem), other The theoretical basis of the book I think is not ready for this Lab stage. It should have been prepared before CCIE Written (eg Routing TCP/IP Volume I, II). If there is a way to get NLI or expert boot camp handouts are the best, anyway, it is best to touch the router every day to test a variety of Lab topics, the main purpose is to familiarize you with various instructions and various conditions, it is best to practice without having to fight? You can know the content of the instructions you want to make.
"All roads lead to Rome", and Cisco likes to restrict you from using this or using it in the Lab, so you must know at least two solutions in each case (eg no sync or IGP redistribution in BGP) Confederation to solve the problem of BGP table synchronization), it is best to practice the Lab, ask yourself in addition to this way there is no other way to achieve this same result.
I personally would recommend
The IGP aspect focuses on:
. Comparison of operations between RIP V1/2
. OSPF NBMA/Virtual-Link/Authentication/NSSA/stub, loopback interface type
. ISIS L1/L2 over frame-relay(note interface type)
. IGP mutual redistibution(route-map or distance)
. Distribution-list filter(acl or prefix-list, it depends on question's hint)
The BGP aspect focuses on:
. RR/Confederation/no sync.
. Aggreagation/route-map filter/prefix-list filter
. Peer-group(use minial config)
. IBGP/EBGP different configure notice
The QOS aspect focuses on:
. Ip precedence setting(num or expression)
The ISDN aspect focuses on: (keep it stable)
. No peer neighbor-route
. Ppp multilink
. Ip ospf demand-circuit/dialer-watch/backup interface(it depends on lab limitation and IGP interaction)
The Multicast aspect focuses on:
. Dense-mode/igmp join-group/ip multicast help-map
. Sparse-mode/sparse-dense-mode/Static RP/Auto-RP/sink-RP
. Any kind of filter
The ATM aspect focuses on: (My experience is that the proportion of ATM seems to be getting smaller and smaller)
IOS feature : Cisco Document CD is familiar!
. VLAN MAP
. MAC related setting(like port-security)
. Spanning tree
If you can pass the CCNP/CCDP written test first, it is much easier to prepare for the CCIE written test, because you have already read most of the basic textbooks.
My experience is that it is easy to get insomnia the night before the first test. I think there may be many people with the same experience (after all, the cost of going abroad for exams/friends and relatives are expecting a lot of pressure); but the second time I did not test before What it feels like to go back to the next day after the test is very nervous.
Maybe you don't want to write a book or Lab for the day before the test.
