In this review session, we will be going over the earlier lessons to cement in hands-on knowledge. I know you have been choosing which labs to follow, but I’m going to suggest which ones to do here. Whatever you do, don’t keep repeating the same labs once you have mastered them. Mix up the IP addresses and the router interfaces and do it all from memory.
If you have to look up commands to remember them, you won’t get through the exam, so, as fast as possible, commit the configuration commands to memory.
