Opting For The 3560 Switch
"To prepare for my CCIE lab exam, I searched online initially to find out the switch that I could work with and it is also not expensive for me since I was building a CCIE home lab. For assistance I also consulted the tools provided by Pass4sure. I decided to purchase the 3560 Cisco switch because it could support IPv6 and I wanted to build my understanding on that concept. Thank God I did prepare for that because the final lab exam contained a lab on IPv6 as well and I was prepared to solve it.
Using Different Switches For Better Practice
"The CCIE home lab that I was building contained a combination of Cisco IOS software 3550 and IOS software 3560 because both the switches were part of the lab equipment required to be tested in the CCIE lab exam and I could be asked to configure any task using these switches. Although it became expensive for me since I bought these switches, if you can find them on rent that will be great. I also used Pass4sure practice labs to assist me with the lab preparation and it really helped me clear the CCIE exam.
A Proper Schedule For CCIE Exam
"Preparing for the CCIE exam was a lengthy journey and it demanded persistent focus. This was also because I was doing a job at the same time and hence I it seemed like a tedious task to me. Since I did not have the time or energy to look for sources for preparation, I initially settled on Pass4sure study guide and testing engine. Fixing a proper schedule and sticking to it had really helped me ensure that I complete the syllabus on time. Now I am building my CCIE home lab to practice for the CCIE lab exam.
Lab Manual And Pass4sure For Configuration
"The manual for router configuration that is authored by David Hucaby, Stephen McQuerry is a very helpful home lab configuration tool required for preparation of the CCIE lab exam. The major use of this manual was that it provided commands and steps which could enable the user to connect the switches and the routers with the IOS software offered by Cisco. Since the configuration section is about 6 hours long I wanted in depth understanding that could help me pass the exam. Since I did not want to use many preparatory materials, I opted for Pass4sure as an additional tool. I cleared the exam!
A Tip To Attempt The Exam…
"Once the set up of the CCIE home lab is complete, I advice the user to start practicing as if they are sitting for the real exam. Once a resource such as Pass4sure is consulted to learn about configuration or troubleshooting, users can move on the next step and draw the topologies. This is because during an exam environment a lot of tension is there which can create confusion for the candidate. As a result of this action, a user can view the network and be in a better position to solve its related issues.
