I’m a little late on this status update, but I don’t want to stop posting these updates. They serve as a combination carrot/whip to keep me on task for the week.
I scored an 89 on the mock lab which is far better that I had hoped for. For those of you who have been following these updates, you’ll have noticed that I have been stuck on a readiness level of 2 (out of 10) since I started posting these updates. That level has been my subjective perception of my ability to pass the lab. I’ve decided to quantify that value a bit. My ideal level of readiness will be achieved when I can score a 90 or above on an IE mock lab with a difficulty level of 10. So I should be able to figure out my readiness based on the following equation:
(((Mock Lab Score/10) * (Mock Lab Difficulty/10)) + 1) = Readiness Level
So my current readiness level is (drum roll please):
(((89/10) * (6/10)) + 1) ≈ 6
That seems a bit high to me (I’m a ‘glass half-empty’ type of guy if you haven’t guessed) but at least it gives me something quantitative for judging my readiness.
Here are my goals from last week: Redo Volume II labs 3, 8. and 9. Review the IEATC videos for Multicast and IP Services.
I did manage to redo labs 3 and 8. I’ll hit 9 again this weekend. I went through the basic multicast video as well as two of the IP Services videos.
Here are my goals this week: Review the IEATC IPv6 and BGP videos. Redo Volume II lab 9. Do Volume III lab 6.
