So many students that pass on a first, or subsequent, attempt of the lab exam emerge to profess the importance of a complete "mastery" of the documentation that is available during the lab exam.


The Version 4.X CCIE R&S Lab Exam places greater pressure on students than ever to be able to rapidly find potentially obscure features in the DOC-CD. This free, interactive lesson will guide you through the use of four critical DOC-CD resources you can access in the actual exam. Enjoy, and as always, thank you so much for choosing INE!
