There is a new Class-on-Demand for Understanding the Cisco Documentation available for public viewing. This CoD covers the new format of the documentation that has since changed from the old www.cisco.com/univercd/ format. Understanding how to navigate the documentation is a vital skill to passing the exam, so if you haven’t spent much time with the new format I would highly recommend you take a look at this CoD.

Happy Labbing!

    I have just joined the COD and found out I should dedicate some hours on that new documentation format. We can really find interesting features that seem to be hidden.

    So, thanks again for the great tips and resources. This kind of things make the difference at the time of choosing where do we want to spend our money to get the best CCIE preparation. :)
