When I feel a bit washed out with lab preparation I try to fill in the gap with scouring the web for additional resources, PDF’s, white papers, MP3’s, AVI’s, blog’s, etc. Anything that can expand my knowledge – I have blogged a lot of these links in previous entries – including NANOG, Blindhog, Packetlife, 7200emu.hacki.at, All the vendor’s support forums, etc.
In coming up with my assault plan with 85 days to go I began to feel annoyed at the lack or non-existance of CCIE SP Mock Labs – reading R&S Lab Candidates feedback post passing, it is obvious that a critical factor in succeeding is the use of mock labs to identify your weak areas. There are none available anywhere! I could take some RS Mock’s and simply not do IPv6, etc but that may break other sections and not give accurate feedback.
Nevertheless I am treating this like it was 2001 and there were no mock labs – candidates still managed to pass without them so that ‘s the way it will have to be with SP.
Finally whilst scouring the web I came across the following SP Lab Pass Feedbacks, some are more useful than others.
