I’m still having ups and downs with my studies. I am at the point where I am able to recognize what technology solves each core task, but I’m still missing bits of configuration and making dumb mistakes. I am also still pretty weak in BGP. My time is horrible as well. Some of that is due to me typing notes as I lab as well as searching for everything in the DOC. Next Wednesday will be my first simulated lab (I’m doing Volume II lab 1). This will give me a better idea of how slow I really am.
I don’t know if it’s the weather (it’s been under zero here for over a week – that translates to “insanely cold” in Celsius), but I’ve been a little disappointed with my progress lately. I’m probably going take a week off pretty soon. By “a week off”, I mean that I will not be labbing but I will still be reading and watching some IEATC videos.
Here are my goals from last week:
Do Volume II lab 6. Do Volume III lab 4. Do 4 random labs from each of Volume I OSPF, EIGRP, RIP (12 total).
I finished Volume III lab 4 and I did my 12 random labs. I only finished the first three sections (through IGP) redistribution of Volume II lab 6.
Goals for this week: Finish Volume II lab 6. Redo Volume III lab 1. Do the Volume I BGP labs.
