CCIE RS Lab – Week 8

Hours Studied: 11

This week got delayed some on the amount of studying due to life. It’s a bit light, but at least I got some done. I’ll make up for it week 9


INE Full Scale Lab 3 – this lab was a bit of a struggle for me. I was exhausted going into this and made a lot of reading mistakes. I did not complete the lab due to the rack giving me issues and hitting a bug that would not allow specific tasks to be completed. I took down a bunch of notes on what I need to make sure I read the specifics on to not get tripped up on wording


I researched further on studying techniques. I setup my phone to be more study friendly by putting education in it’s own page and bringing the flashcard app up in front.

For labbing I worked on EIGRP filtering techniques. I’ve been putting a focus on filtering because it gives me additional practice with ACL’s and prefix lists along with reinforcing some subnetting which I’ve found has taken me longer to figure out than in the past.

Listened to the podcast episode Art of Manliness #385 – Learning how to Learn

I took notes from this to see if there is a new strategy I need to add to my studying habit. I’d highly suggest people listen to this and get a different perspective on how to study.

I’ve also started putting notes on my desk that I can easily glance at throughout the day


Posted my study material and strategy video.

Labbed QOS, I did not get through a bunch of the labs, but more focused on the math of finding the Burst comitted rate and understanding how to get to the correct numbers. I also looked at the different ways to change the quueuing type and how to validate the configuration.


Got to some videos, INE ATC OSPF still with a focus on authentication


More INE ATC videos, focused around redistribution


Took the day off, helped my brother get stuff ready for his move
