INE’s CCIE Routing & Switching v5 Workbook is the definitive resource for mastering the technologies covered on the CCIE lab exam. The workbook follows a structured design that covers not only the necessary topic domains, but also lab strategy and other key test-taking skills. The workbook is divided into four main sections, as follows.

Advanced Technology Labs

The Advanced Technology Labs are one of the first steps toward CCIE lab preparation. This section consists of nearly 500 hands-on labs that walk you through each and every technology and provide in-depth explanations of how their configurations work. Topics are presented in an easy-to-follow, goal-oriented, step-by-step approach. These scenarios feature detailed breakdowns and thorough verifications to help you completely understand each technology at an expert level.

Advanced Foundation Labs

In the Advanced Foundation Labs, the overall pieces of the puzzle start to fit together. These labs are designed to refine your configuration skills on the core technologies used in the CCIE lab exam. Each lab guides you through the critical steps necessary for building and verifying a working networking topology. The labs are designed to increase your speed and refine your task-management skills, capacities that are crucial when working in a timed full-scale lab environment.

Advanced Troubleshooting Labs

The Advanced Troubleshooting Labs present you with pre-built network topologies in which you will resolve various problems that have been introduced. This section will help you develop a structured troubleshooting approach and improve your time-management skills; as a result, troubleshooting will become second-nature. Improving your troubleshooting skills will not only help you pass the CCIE lab exam, but also help you with real-world job scenarios, which often require timely and accurate troubleshooting.

Full-Scale Practice Labs

The Full-Scale Practice Labs are the culmination of all your preparation as you ready yourself for the actual CCIE lab exam. The full-scale labs are designed to simulate the CCIE Routing & Switching Lab Exam, while still illustrating the principles behind the technologies. Building upon your expert-level understanding of the fundamentals, this section teaches you to predict advanced and sometimes subtle interactions that occur when multiple technologies are combined together. When you have fully mastered the full-scale labs, you’ll be ready to take and pass the CCIE lab exam!
