Your first task will be to create a network to specification. This will take up all of the first day and half of the second. Halfway through the second day, while you are out of the room, the exam proctor will insert faults into your network, and you will have to find and fix them-as well as be able to document the problems and their resolutions.
There are a total of 100 possible points on the exam. To pass, you must achieve a score of 80 or better. You must achieve a passing score on each section of the exam to be allowed to progress to the next. For example, a perfect score on the first day would be 45 points. You have to earn at least 30 of them to be allowed to return for the first part of day two. Table 1-1 shows the scoring breakdown.
The lab starting time varies depending upon location, but will be somewhere between 8:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M. each day and run for 7 1/2 hours. There is a half hour break for lunch. A proctor will be in the room to clarify questions and handle any emergencies that may arise, but basically you are on your own....
...The failure rate for this exam is high. According to Cisco, only about 20 percent of the candidates pass it on the first attempt. On average, CCIE candidates require two to three lab exams before they earn a passing score. Think of your first time through as a learning experience, and if you manage to pass, that is a bonus. There is no limit on the number of times you can retake the exam.
As with all certification exams, lab exam content and structure are subject to change, so when you are ready to consider taking the lab exam, it's best to get the latest information from Cisco. Cisco's Web site contains specific instructions about how to prepare for each of the CCIE lab and qualification exams.
It cannot be stressed enough that you must get lots of hands-on practice if you hope to pass this exam. If you do not have equipment to practice on at work, you will have to set up a home lab or find another way to gain access to the equipment.
Students studying for their CCIE will find the 119 sample labs and over 350 router configurations a valuable study reference. Those people that are fortunate enough to have access to several routers will be able to actually go through each lab step by step.
All of the 119 labs in this book are self-contained with fully debugged configurations and stepby-step instructions. All of the labs were tested, and the output shown in each lab was actually taken from the working configurations.
Each lab was created using the least number of routers possible, so the reader who wishes to actually go through each lab can do so with the least amount of equipment.
1. Each chapter starts with an introduction section, outlining the topic to be discussed.
2. A detailed technology overview of the topic is then presented. Readers should read through this overview to make sure that they have a thorough understanding of the topic....

I just purchased the The All-In-One CCIE Lab Study Guide, and I am very pleased with the format, and the content. Unlike many of the Cisco Press books, the AIO CCLSG is thorough in content, without being so incredibly dry as to be prescribed as a Rx for insomnia. The book is very well structured, and follows very carefully all of the requirements laid out on the new R&S Lab Blueprint, to include VoIP, MPLS, and MCast. Each lab focuses on a specific technology which can be configured often with a minimal amount of hardware, while maximizing the actual lab scenarios. This is a no frills, cover to cover Lab scenario book that leaves the Cisco Press wondering why they would ever choose to print books in which the author's sole purpose is to extol the virtues of their own genius. The All-in-One Cisco(r) CCIE(tm) Lab Study Guide has been tailored to the CCIE CANDIDATE already well versed IOS and enterprise networks.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
