As a side note a new highly successful approach that we (InternetworkExpert) are recommending to certain candidates is taking only 5 or 6 full scale labs but doing them 4 or 5 times each. Then during the last week or two before the real lab taking 2 or 3 additional full scale labs and doing them once or twice each. This approach should get you to the point where you can do any of the 5 or 6 labs within 4 hours and be able to complete the additional 2 or 3 labs within 5 to 5.5 hours. You would be amazed at the amount you can learn by doing a lab more than once. Plus one of the big benefits with this approach is that you gain speed and accuracy (accuracy = correct configuration the first time around) which is important in passing the lab.

The above passage was from Brian Dennis of InternetworkExpert posted on GroupStudy. I guess the key to this statement is where Brian say’s ‘for certain candidates’, I think it is an interesting approach and I may look at it for this next phase. As much as I would like to work through all 20 labs in the v4 workbook, Im sure there is a lot of repetition in some of the tasks, so concentrating it down to 6-7 may be a good idea. Having looked through the labs they seem to be a good mix covering lots of different topics – so will see how it goes. I still plan to do the core sections first on these labs to get my speed up in these areas.
