Several Stages of the Preparation for CCIE


    Ten minutes on the stage and ten years off the stage, no one can casually succeed. Many people say that CCIE is now everywhere. Don’t listen to these stupid people. They don’t know anything. It’s not easy. Now that you have passed the test, you may think about the hardships of preparing for the test. The certificates you gained from your efforts in that period are still worthwhile. The purpose of taking an CCIE test is not just to gain the honor of a network direction, but the affirmation of your hard work, I believe that you can.

    There are three stages in preparing for CCIE. The first stage is to become familiar with the version and accumulate basic knowledge. The second stage is to become proficient in the version and consolidate the basic knowledge. The third stage is to become proficient in the version and master the basic knowledge. The foundation is very important. Don’t blindly believe that you can pass the CCIE exam by reciting the version. Even if you pass the exam, you still don’t know anything. I suggest that you should lay a good foundation and be familiar with the route, so that the third stage is efficient and accurate.

    In the first stage, you can learn from the CCIE video. After watching the video, you can then read the exercise book. It is not required to be fast at this time, but it is better to be familiar with the CCIE version and take notes. Otherwise, after you have read all the versions, you will feel that you has no impression on the previous version when you review the first version. Therefore, in the first stage, take notes frequently, and ensure the accuracy rate when you finish reading. The time can be slower, but you should be accurate.

    In the second stage, you are already familiar with the version. At this time, you don’t need to refer to the answers. You can check the answers in this part after finishing reading. If you find any mistakes, you should immediately record them. If you don’t understand them, you must make them clear. You can discuss them with your classmates to help improve the learning efficiency.

    In the third stage, we should pay attention to efficiency and speed, but the error rate should be low. Every time we make a mistake, we must write it down. The second time we make a mistake, we should punish ourselves. We should not make more than two mistakes in the same place. In this period, you should know how the route is transmitted, who gives the default route, what we choose when we trace from one device to another the detailed route or the default route, and what method is used to achieve this. At this time, the version map should be in your mind, and you should have a certain ability to troubleshoot your own mistakes. Let’s put it this way. If you have any symptoms, you might be able to pass the exam. If you have no symptoms, you can’t pass the exam. Don’t decompress yourself. Don’t think that it is just fine to have one or two phenomena wrong.

    Finally, although your version is well prepared, you must not use your notepad in a wide range in the examination room. In addition, don’t look at the first part and directly type the solution of the last part. If the examiner finds it, you know it. Don’t be nervous in the examination room. If you are ready for the version, the time is enough. There is time to check three times. You must be careful when doing the questions. Make a record of all the common mistakes in the version that you usually type before going to bed the night before the exam. This is very important. For TS, you must make clear the route. Remembering the wrong points will greatly save you time for troubleshooting in the exam room. If one or two questions are not listed, don’t panic. Don’t casually drop the configuration of others. Even the garbage configuration has nothing to do with you. As long as it does not affect the phenomenon, don’t worry about it.
