I now have 132 study days left before my first attempt at the CCIE Lab exam in Routing and Switching v4.
I have started a complete study guide mapping out exactly what I am going to be doing between now and the big day.
This consists of ensuring I do every Vol II lab again, I also have a plan for mock labs starting in January and I also have a couple Cisco 360 assessment labs booked for next year.
I have ramped up my nightly study schedule and am aiming for 3 hours a night, and am also starting a full lab every Saturday morning. Then subject to family time I will either finish this in the afternoon or Sunday morning. I have all the Christmas period off so will be doing a lot more labs then and am also trying to plan how much time I can take off before the lab to do more back to back labs.
I will be posting daily as a way to put my notes from the day somewhere I can reference them, rather than on a scrap of paper that I will not look at again.
132 days left study notes
This afternoon I did INE VolII troubleshooting Lab 1. This hit on one of my weak areas which is Frame Relay.
I need to put some time in this evening on Frame Relay troubleshooting.
It also highlighted another issue with MPLS route leaking which I will be working on more this weekend and will probably do a blog post about that as it is something I need to get solid in my head.
