Question on length of a rack token

Hi,

I have purchased 1000 rack tokens for my R&S lab preparation from INE. I am new to INE and getting used to the members portal webinterface slowly. I have gone through some of the video on demand for rack rentals, they are extremely useful but still I have few questions to ask INE for clarification.

1. 1000 rack tokens would be sufficient to complete vol 1,2,4?

2. What will be length of one token? one session?

Reason is I have to figure out whether I have to depend completely on vracks or I should also find an alternate for hand on.

  • Each session is 5.5 hours.

     

    The amount of tokens you need per session is typically 30, however this value changes depending on when you book it, what session and how soon you book it.

     

    I’ve often got a session for about 17 tokens just by what time I book it for and how soon e.g. book the session an hour before etc...

     

     

    Many Thanks,

  • You will probably use between 20 tokens per session if you lab on weekends also. That would mean 1000/20 = 50 sessions. 50 sessions * 5.5 hours is 275 hours. Most people need somewhere close to 1000 hours preparing for the CCIE but that will greatly vary depending on experience. I don't think 1000 tokens will be enough to do all the volumes.

  • Take a look at the scheduler to get an idea of what current prices are.

    If you can do some study during the week, it's quite a bit cheaper.

    Luckily for me my Saturday morning is Friday afternoon in the US, and so prices are a lot lower than Saturday morning US time.
