Ok, well tonight I finalised by strategy both for prep and for the lab itself. I am going through various vendors workbooks and focussing on each technology. I have created a document with a table with 2 columns and multiple rows. The column on the left is possible questions and the column on the right is solutions & gotchas.
I got a copy of the internetworkexpert R&S v4 [oldish?] workbook lab and simply restricting myself to labs 1-10 went through Frame relay tonight. Switching tomorrow. The end game? A master document that will go everywhere with me with the majority of the possible questions and solutions that I may face in the Lab. Obviously going through documenting and verifying is cementing the knowledge. One thing from tonight’s work is that interpretation is key, not so much in FR itself rather in FRTS. If they simply said assign this cir, mincir, bc, etc to this interface well and good but when a scenario is presented you need to interpret exactly which interface on which router the FTRS goes. Once that’s done then the question is what is the CCIE way? What are the scripts the proctors use looking for? Do we proceed down the map-class route and assign to the DLCI like IE and Ipexpert? Anyway this section is only a couple of points, let’s not dwell, if Scott Morris & the two Brians say map-class then map-class it is!
