Passed R&S Lab on first attempt
I want to inform you that I've passed the R&S lab exam on friday 6 feb
on my first attempt.
I used IE Volume 1, Volume 2, Mock labs, Poly labs, Rack rentals and
I started to prepare for the lab on January 2007 and 3 weeks before my
lab I prepared 12-13 hours/day( doing labs, reading doccd and watching
video materials at home without any pressure or disturbance).
I considered the lab at a rate of 7.5- 8 comparing with the difficulty of the IE Labs.
2 of the Open Ended questions was not so easy and made me think verry carefully about what they want from me and the other 2 questions were verry easy if you know the staff.
The diagrams from IE are very nice comparing with the diagrams from lab and I make my own diagram with colours/pencils.
I finished the lab in 5 hours and 30 minutes and I had enogh time to recheck all tasks twice and I found two faults and I corrected them.
I want to say that IE COD materials were great and helped me a lot(I
watched 4-5 times all materials) .
I've done VOL2 1-20 labs 3 times (2 times using dynamips and one time
using IE Rack Rentals) ,Mock Labs 1-7 -2 times (the average score was
between 80-90 %) and Vol1.v5 1 time using dynamips and read it 2 more times.
I used also Open Lecture series (Video Materials) -watched them one time.
I could't made it for the first time without IE materials.
