Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom. To start off let us explain what is CCIE? Some say this is the doctoral of networking and for many of us who have attempted or have gone through this journey can testify to this fact. This certification not only proves your technical prowess but also adds prestige to your resume. It may increase your salary, and provide job security in today's environment.
It has been stated that over the past ten years, more than half of the engineers who passed the written exam did not pass the lab exam; and for the ones who attempted the lab it took at least three attempts to pass the CCIE lab.
After we completed two different CCIE lab certification tracks, we realized an important element the nontechnical aspects was missing in all of the training material.
This element has not been taught anywhere; until now. We have created this unique book to discuss the non-technical aspects of the CCIE lab.
This book is for anyone, who is either considering taking on the CCIE challenge, or has passed the written portion of the exam. We want to tell you at the outset that we are engineers just like you, and because of that, this book is short and to the point. In our experience, we have seen CCIE candidates approach the lab exam just like any other exam.
Due to the enormity of this exam, some get sidetracked or discouraged. In many instances, this is due to the non-technical aspects.
Here are a few common scenarios that we have seen. Scenario 1: You plan and set a target date for scheduling your CCIE lab and start studying very hard. As you approach your target date, you realize that you are not fully prepared and so you postpone scheduling the CCIE lab. After doing this a couple of times you stop trying. The problem in this scenario is that your target date is not planned well.
Either the date is too aggressive or you are not able to devote as much time for studying. Both of these are non-technical reasons that we will tackle in this book. Scenario 2: You start preparing after reading the Lab blueprint.
The sheer number of books you have to read tells you that this is difficult. After reading three or four books you realize that you have already started to forget things from the first book. When this happens, you may get overwhelmed and stop studying altogether. The problem in this scenario is that you need to change the way you prepare and study for the CCIE Lab. You need to be very specific about what training resources to use, and how to use them This is another nontechnical aspect.
We will give you guidelines on how to maximize your studying efficiency later on in this book. Scenario 3: For your specific CCIE track you may purchase training lab books which may have 20, 30 or even 40 labs to choose from. You soon realize that although you know the answers, you still do not understand why a particular task was completed in a specific manner. As you complete more and more of these labs you recognize there are many gaps in your knowledge and you have to start fresh by reading up on technologies.
This may cause you to postpone or give up on your CCIE quest. The problem in this scenario is that the candidate has many gaps in his or her knowledge. By jumping into the labs without proper planning and preparation, the labs become more daunting. This book addresses the gradual step-by-step processes you should follow in order to succeed and understand the lab. Scenario 4: You are a great engineer and are on top of your game. Because of this, you are always busy and have many responsibilities.
This leaves you with very little time for studying. You can spare two or three weeks max so you decide to take a one week CCIE boot camp from a leading training provider and schedule your lab two weeks after that.
After completing the course, you realize that you need much more time to study, a luxury you don't find yourself having. In this scenario, scheduling and planning study time while having a full time job is the roadblock, and we tell you how to get around that, and share our own stories. We can keep on going with many more scenarios; these and many other pitfalls are addressed in this book.
This guidebook gives you the strategies that have been successfully used by us for both our CCIEs, along with real life examples. We tell you:. The three essential keys to unlock your success. How to effectively utilize your training provider's resources. The four step process that will help when using Video on Demand. The necessary preparation to start your hands-on labs. How to speed up learning using a partner.
