RFC, or Request for Comments, are documents published that describe various items surrounding computer networking. Generally, these are memorandums published by the Internet Engineering Task Force.

RFCs can be a great resource. For some unknown reason, most candidates preparing for the CCIE don’t take the time to review these documents, which can be very helpful in assisting with understanding the how and why of various networking components. Perhaps the language is a bit dry, or they prefer books with shiny covers.

Question: What is the recommended way to use the product?
Answer: We recommend at the very least doing a four-question simulation each day during your studies. The simulation should quickly pinpoint your weak areas that require additional reading/study.

Question: How many total questions are there?
Answer: We are adding questions every day initially, and then we will add to the database at least every week. We will always offer a method to view all questions no matter how big the database becomes.

We thought we would let our “blog faithful” be the first to know about our new CCIE R/S Core Knowledge Simulation.

Use this tool to help pinpoint potential weaknesses in your knowledge of the vast scope of the R/S blueprint. As you might guess, this tool also helps in overall lab preparation as well, especially with the more vague lab tasks that require quite a bit of implied information.

No matter when your lab date, this query database will continue to grow – so be sure to visit it often. Enjoy your studies, and try not to let two short answer questions ruin your whole day. ☺

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 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!

The Internet now has a new location for knowledge sharing when it comes to anything related to the CCENT Certification from Cisco Systems. Whether it is general questions or comments about the certification itself, or technical questions related to any entry-level networking technology, these forums are for you!

Just like our expert-level forums, these electronic collaboration areas are a friendly and fun way to have your questions answered anytime 24×7. Remember, the only foolish question is the one you do not ask.

If you are new to the forums, be sure to explore all of the features of the IEOC. For example, you can subscribe to forums and have posts sent right to your e-mail inbox.

We sincerely hope you use and enjoy these new forums; our staff of CCIEs and your enthusiastic study peers anxiously await your posts!
