The first of the new “Foundation Labs” in our CCIE RSv5 Workbook series is now available on the members site, as seen below:

These Foundation Labs are designed to refine your configuration skills on the core technologies used in the CCIE lab exam. Each lab guides you through the critical steps necessary for building and verifying a working networking topology. The labs are designed to increase your speed and refine your task-management skills, capacities that are crucial when working in a timed full-scale lab environment.

Currently Lab 1 is still in Beta, as there are some other topics I’m going to add to it. I figured I’d post it now anyways, just in case you have the day off today because of the long Memorial Day weekend, and you wanted to get a head start on some new material. The rest of the lab tasks will be posted shortly.

Also don’t forget that tomorrow is the kickoff for the new CCIE Routing & Switching Advanced Technologies Class v5. AAP members can attend for free. It’s not too late to sign up for an AAP or buy the standalone download of the RSv5 ATC, both of which will get you access to the live class tomorrow. Class starts at 8am PDT and will run just a few hours, as mainly I’m going to be talking about what the overall scope of the new class will be, and other key changes with new technologies, the new topology, etc.

Everyone is welcome to attend the class tomorrow even if you don’t have an AAP, so if you have any questions that you’d like answered in real-time then I would highly recommend attending.

Hope to see you there!

    Hi Brian,

    Are these foundation labs similar to the previous Vol. 3 labs? Just testing core technologies and speed?

    Regards,
    Marc

    Brian,

    Does the “CCIE RSv5 Workbook Foundation Lab 1″ represent a fair cross section of what technologies that I can expect to see on a full lab exam?

    It seems to be more of a lab tailored to core tasks to establish connectivity throughout the topology. Is this an accurate assessment?

    If so, when can I expect to see practice labs that will be adequate to gauge my readiness for the v5 lab?

    Thanks!
