In this ongoing series here at blog.ipexpert.com, we are going to answer the most common questions CCIE instructors hear. Here is the latest:
Question: Is There Time to Use the Documentation in the Lab Exam?
Answer: The answer is YES, but this answer holds true only if one considers what we would term “appropriate” use of the documentation CD. A story that I often tell in CCIE bootcamps is one of the ways I can tell a student IS NOT ready for the exam. It is when they are using the DOC-CD for configurations that they should ABSOLUTELY have memorized. An example I provide is routing protocol authentications. This is an example of a configuration that we should have practices so many times that it is like our own middle name to us.
