Here is the post from Narbik in groupstudy on CCIE studies.
I personally do not agree with time tables, things happen and sometimes we
can not adhere to that time table. You see…everyone has an approach and i
am sure Anthony gives one of the best recommendations, i have heard what he
recommended to some of my students, and i totally respect and agree with his
approach. But the following is mine:
Divide the blueprint into chunks, this is what i did when i was studying for
Switching – Let’s say you are doing vendor xyz’s work book, go through the
switching section and do it couple of times, once you are totally
comfortable with all the switching labs from that particular vendor, you
should do the same labs one more time, but this time you will look up every
command in the DOC CD, and go on from command/section by section until you
are totally comfortable with all aspects of switching. This may take 2 weeks
or 3 weeks, DO NOT set a hard time table, setup a comfortable time table,
one that you can repeat without jeopardizing your family life, and other
GO through the entire blueprint in that manner and summarize what you
learned from a given section/lab, lab it up, remember the three golden
rules: 1) Configure, 2) Verify, and 3) *TEST*.
Let’s say your lab is on Monday, take off the Friday before, get up 6:30 AM
and go through the same routine, Shower, Shave, Sh%$, Shampoo……etc….
7:30 AM start a mock lab, stop 11:30 for 30 minutes lunch and start back at
12:00 and stop the test at 4:30.
Saturday, Sunday you should go through the same process, Monday your body
has adjusted to that routine and it will be just another day, you will be
able to sit and focus for 8 hours without any problems.
and always remember QUALITY BEATS QUANTITY.
Just my 2 cents.
