Well I took a little over a week off since passing the written to finish some stuff up around the house like our roof! Some break I had! Well tonight I am hoping to get started with the Internetwork Expert Class on Demand material with the switching segment. With my Dynamips Mac Mini setup to the real switches running smooth I am hoping to work with WorkBook I as I work through the COD’s themselves. I have a Cisco doc dvd yearly subscription at work so this will help as well. This is where my studying and lab time will become methodical. I need to get everything to sink in and stick with me. With Cisco bumping up the lab fee to $1400 per attempt along with the six month wait time for a open lab slot this makes the first attempt become ever more important.

Here is the way I am looking to tackle this:

This came from Ethan Bank’s blog site. I have been looking for a path to take once the written was finished and I believe this will be the one.

“Here are my 10 CCIE R&S commandments for those taking the same path…..1. Internetwork Expert Class on Demand, view all 80 hours and take extensive notes2. Read through entire DOCCD relevant to R&S, and take extensive notes

3. Internetwork Expert Workbook – 30 Labs – go over anything you got wrong or did not understand (I am planning on starting with Lab Workbook I as well which breaks labs down to the topic level – Sunpenguin)

4. Internetwork Expert Core Lab Workbook (this was really good…. get it)

5. Internetwork Expert Advanced Technologies (just read through)

6. Internetwork Expert Class on Demand – second viewing, and take extensive notes (you will be surprised what you missed)

7. 2x Internetwork Expert Mock Labs 1 month before your Lab date (if you get 80% or over on both, you are ready)

-I have credit for four graded mock exams so hopefully I won’t need all four and will have some credit with IE at the end. Sunpenguin

8 Cisco’s online Evaluation Lab (this is also good for feedback)9. Take the real thing10. If you fail, never give up, because… if it was easy, it would be worthless……Andrew Radford
