Final Study System and Scheme!!!!

Okay, I have finally made up my study system. I have been racking my brain to figure out how to systematically study and cover as much material as I can for the 802 CCNA exam this 7 August 2008 that I have bought and paid for. Technically it is my first exam since my actual first 802 exam froze on me and Cisco gave me a voucher for this new 802 exam. I am going to (upon failure–I am not stupid!) take the option to do the 2nd SHOT!!! It is free and I would be stupid not to take it if they are offerring a free retake. I would take it like 1 week close to end of the 2ndSHOT avail period so I can get more study in. But damn it I think I will have this one… I have been racking my brains to find a system that will work. I believe in studying a certain way. I believe that we have certain types of memory.  For example math is in your hands. I had a civil engineering friend tell me math was in his hands. I laughed and started to use his technique. I realized maybe it is in my hands.. I try to break my studying into these blocks. I also believe we are creatures of habit and learning and remembering is nothing more than “habits of the mind!”

My CCNA 802 Study Schedule/Scheme!

1. Labs – (done Monday – Friday from 7pm to 11pm)based off of my list of topics I made!  I combine labs with smaller skillsets mixed in like Banner MOTD type commands, etc…made my own labs)

2. Cold Memory – (done weekends.) Anything I need to remember cold (AD of EIGRP = 90 or 2^5=32)

3. Quest/Answer Drills – (done weekends) practice exams (Bryant Exams bought his entire ICND1/2 course)

4. Hard CCNA TOPICs (watch CBTs) to Notes to Blog.     (done weekends)Stuff like (EIGRP,OSPF, STP, IPv6).Other stuff ACLis just lab practice till I puke but these are kind of complex dealing with timers, and unequal/equal cost load balancing and how the algorithms pick best routes.

5. Practice (done weekends).Skills like (VLSM, subnettings, supernetting, IPv6….)


Final week of exam (taking off 3 days(plus sat/sun = 5 days) before exam to practice all day and repeat all above (ALL of it)

Exam Date 7 August 2008 at 1:30PM at our towns Technical College (yeah baby! yeah!)
