Status Update: 20 – 26 January

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.

Days Until Lab: 123
Readiness (1 to 10): 2
Lab Hours This Week 12
Study Hours This Week (estimate): 3
