As many of you hopefully already know, the CCIE Routing & Switching certification blueprint is changing from version 4 to version 5 on June 3rd 2014. As this date quickly approaches, and as the last of the v4 lab seats are fully booked, it’s time to start planning your attack on the RSv5 blueprint.
While Cisco’s official blueprint for v5 is now more detailed that it has ever been in the past, it still lacks some details in certain areas, for example “Implement, optimize and troubleshoot filtering with any routing protocol.” Additionally it would be difficult to use Cisco’s blueprint for a study plan as it stands in its current linear format. For example “Layer 3 multicast” is listed before “Fundamental routing concepts”, which from a learning perspective doesn’t make sense, because you must understand unicast routing fully before you learn multicast routing. To help remedy this we’ve re-ordered and expanded Cisco’s blueprint into INE’s RSv5 Expanded Blueprint, which you can find below after the jump.
Our CCIE RSv5 Expanded Blueprint is meant to be used as a checklist that you can use as you go through your preparation. This way when you’re finally ready to attempt the lab exam, you can be assured that you’ve at least heard of all the topics in the scope, regardless of how obscure some of them might be. Additionally note that some topics listed below might appear only on the written exam and not the lab exam, such as MPLS Layer 2 VPNs or RIPng, but are still included in our content and the outline below.
The below outline will continue to be updated, so check back periodically during your preparation to see changes, adds, and removes. Good luck in your studies!
