I'm sure this has been asked before...
I am taking my exam on Tuesday the 29th at VUE testing facility.
In the Labs...are you permitted, encouraged, or prohibited from using abbreviated commands?
Some of the lab sims I have done, have marked the lab WRONG because I use "conf t" instead of "configure terminal" and "show run" instead of "show running-config" and things like that.
I'm doing great with subnetting and binary/hex/decimal conversions, I have STP and access lists pretty well figured out, and I am now in the middle of setting up a frame relay network on one serial port and a PPP network on the other. I am using a set of (3) 2610 variety routers, each with 2 serial WIC's and a E0 port for my lab practice...will these be enough for the CCNA? The bummer is the two switches I have here are Cat 1900's (24 ports each)...but I think MOST of the switch labs work on them...will the 1900 practice hurt me? Should I do some study with the simulated 2950's?
My son is a CCNA already...and he's been a big help...like when I blew away the IOS on a couple of the routers, he simply refused to help, and only giggled at me while I sweated out the repair process....being around IT for a couple decades, I had backed up the IOS within seconds of getting the routers turned on...boy did I look smart.73
