So I have been putting it off for a while now, but my last bunch of text books arrived in the mail last night so i have no excuse to put it off any longer.... Officially began studing for my CCIE last night.
My only goal at the moment is to have the written exam passed by the time my CCNP expires in mid 2012. A long way away i know but i don't get to much spare time.
So, diving straight into routing, BGP first as its on the cards at work at the moment. Will use the office exam cert guide, along with TCP/IP routing 2, and also the BSCI book which has some great info.
Last night was a bit of a review on basic routing, principals, Classless vs Classfull, VLSM, CIDR, summerization etc etc. I'll be using dynamips fairly heavily for the routing stuff, as its just nice and easy and i can run around 10 routers on my PC.
So thats it for now, I'm at work and should probably stop laughing so hard at this youtube clip 'the day the routers died'
