CCIE Routing and Switching Practice Labs (Digital Short Cut)
Martin James Duggan
CCIE Routing and Switching Practice Labs (Digital Short Cut) presents you with two full lab scenarios in exam style format to echo the real eight-hour CCIE Routing and Switching lab exam. This publication gives you the opportunity to put into practice your own extensive theoretical knowledge of subjects in isolation to find out how they interact with each other on a larger complex scale.
An "Ask the Proctor" list of questions for each section helps provide clarity and maintain direction to ensure that you do not give up and check the answers if you find a task too challenging. After each lab, this Digital Short Cut lets you compare configurations and routing tables with the required answers. You also can run through a lab debriefing, view configurations, and cut and paste configs into your own lab equipment for testing and verification. The point scoring for each question lets you know whether you passed or failed each lab.
This extensive set of practice labs, which sells for hundreds of dollars elsewhere, helps you make sure you are fully prepared for the grueling CCIE lab exam experience.
