Status Update: 10 – 16 September

Last week was a good week as I got back into my study routine.  I concentrated exclusively on OSPF.  I reviewed the IEATC week 1 videos for OSPF as well as read the Routing TCP/IP chapter on OSPF(v2).  I then completed most of the Volume I OSPF labs.  I tend to grumble about the inconsistent quality of the Internetwork Expert Volume I labs, but the OSPF labs are excellent.  Each lab has “Ask Yourself” questions that concentrate your efforts on the aspects of the technology that the lab is testing.  Each lab also has a very well written “Breakdown” section that explains the technology used in the lab.

Here’s a review of my goals from last week:

16 hours of IP Services/OSPF/NAT labs with 10 hours of OSPF reading/videos.

I came pretty close to meeting my labbing goal (14 hours) and met my reading goal.

This week I will concentrate on finishing the last few OSPF labs.  I’m then going to work through the security labs as well as get a good start on the NAT labs.  Whatever I don’t finish, I’ll put on the back burner because next week is going to be all about BGP.

My goals for the week: 30 hours of OSPF/Security/NAT labs.

Days Until Lab: 196
Readiness (1 to 10): 1
Lab Hours This Week 14
Study Hours This Week (estimate): 12
