I got a chance to try out a Poly-lab over at Graded Labs this weekend. So if you curious about the labs themselves I will be posting up a review on that. I booked back to back sessions so I didn’t have to be up at 6:00am on a Saturday. Estimated time to finish was listed as four hours, but this is me we are talking about. So I am thinking maybe six ;). Either way it will feel good to be labbing for four to six straight hours again this weekend.

    I’ve done 3 of the poly labs so far, and I’ve found the time estimates to be pretty generous. I did back to back rentals on my first go and have since moved to single session rentals. Though I have generally started my reading/planning before the lab, or during the rack setup process.

    FYI, if you do find that you finished with 3-4 hours to spare on your rental, you can always create another poly lab and do a second one. If you are a CCIE 2.0 customer, it won’t cost you anything extra. You’re not limited to one poly lab per rental.

    Have fun!

    Thanks for the heads up Jeff. I would have just stopped at 4 hours thinking I needed to spend another 25 tokens…

    I’ve done several as well. The “timer” is there only for reference. The lab won’t end when the time concludes, only when you click the “end” button. Then the SAGE will work its magic. The good thing is, if you have time remaining, you can log back in and look at your routers/switches as you review the scoring. I found this to be valuable. I also like to “swipe” the configs when I’m done for my reference files.

    One thing to keep in mind is there is no human grading, so there could be cases where you are technically correct, but it is scored as incorrect. But generally speaking it has been pretty good.

    Good luck with it!
