Don't bother remembering things for the lab that are on the written?
My favorite part is when I'm watching one of these videos and it says don't bother remembering X because you can look it up.
But those are the type of questions that are on the CCIE written exam.
I'm not sure why the exam seems to have become more about memorization of items than actually understanding how or why things work.
It's very frustrating that the exam seems to have stepped away from grading based on skills in understanding and has defaulted to who can memorize the most. My job is not about memorizing, the smarted people I know look things up everyday.
