Hi Everyone,

    Awesome!! thanks for the updates…Does this mean that the new LAB2 VOL5 will be updated for the new 4.0? I am taking my test in JULY and have went through all VOL2 ver 5 labs and was wondering. thanks

  2. Barooq says:

    I am hoping, it doesnt slow down security updates?
    Those were supposed to be all done in late June/early july ?:S

  3. Dragons & Faeries says:


    Fantastic job on this…Thanks!

    I’ve noticed that this list of 61 labs is different from the original list posted here: Specifically, these labs are missing:

    BGP Bestpath Selection – Deterministic MED
    BGP Bestpath Selection – Cost Community
    BGP Bestpath Selection – RIB Failure
    BGP Local AS No Prepend
    BGP Timers Tuning (Scan/Advertise Interval, Keepalives)
    BGP Neighbor Fallover
    BGP Maximum Prefix
    BGP AS Override
    BGP Policy Accounting & Propagation
    BGP Match Source Protocol
    BGP Traffic Index
    BGP Remotely Triggered Blackhole
    BGP QoS Policy Propagation

    Is this the final release of the BGP section? If so, could you please provide some insights as to why the aforementioned topics are left out, other than the fact that the final product is slightly different from its original goal?

    I am reading the Security VolumeI vpn section, they are very nice!
    Thanks for your great post!

    Please don’t delay Security Updates for SC-Vol1 and Vol2. We are still waiting for Sec ATC CoD to be released.

  6. John says:


    Does this mean that wbI v5.0 for exam version 3.0 has been finalized in regards to the number of topics that was planned to be included in this workbook?

    • To: All

      With respect to BGP, our task list has changed a little bit. I’ve decided not to cover the complex scenarios such as QPPB and RTBH for a moment (they are more likely to be SP or SC topics); They are still on the todo list though. So far, VOL1 looks about 95% complete; there are still some “to be done” labs in a few sections, and we plan to add those along with the new Cisco RS v4.0 blueprint updates.

      Right now, the focus is on the new updates for R&S, SC and VO tracks. As you can imagine there is a ton of work to do here, and we’re getting 100% busy with that :) Not to mention the classes running in between. No matter what though, the incremental updates are to appear periodically for all tracks.
