  • Gentlemen,

    Any specific good books for open ended questions CCIE-SP

     

    No offense, but I always wonder why people ask such questions... It like asking a question "Any specific books on how the world goes round?", where I would advice reading tons of books on chemistry, physics, sociology, culture or religion... So the same story when it comes to CCIE: currently I have 32 books on my shelf that I use for SP preparation, approx 3000 pages of printed documentation and a couple dozens of interesting bookmarks in a web browser - and I am quite sure it is not a 100% recipe for passing OEQ section.

    Regarding the question: OEQs are about underlying concepts, not about working recipes (this is what I believe in), so my rule of thumb is: the less IOS CLI code in the book, the better the book for understanding concepts. Looking at my bookshelf: "Fault-Tolerant IP and MPLS Networks" (CiscoPress, no single line of IOS CLI command!), "Complete IS-IS Routing Protocol" (non-Cisco Press, rich in protocol details, both Juniper and Cisco examples), or "Interdomain Multicast Routing" (again non-CiscoPress, lots of details on PIM mechanics and forwarding rules you won't find elsewhere ).

    And last but not least complete off-topic: I personally think that OEQ was a very good move from Cisco (which can very likely kill me on my lab attempt :-). You can probably teach the monkey to configure BGP route-reflector, but you probably cannot teach the monkey to tell which router is the IS-IS DIS looking at the wireshark output...

    mikrobi,

     

  • read and read and read again is the solutions for OEQ :)

  • Hi,

    Well, I am reading the following books-

    Cisco_Press - Mpls_And_Vpn_Architectures vol 1

    Cisco_Press - Mpls_And_Vpn_Architectures vol 2

    Cisco.Press.MPLS.Configuration.on.Cisco.IOS.Software

    Jeoff Doyle - routing and switching book

    like you said (read)^n

    thanks

    GP

     

  • Guys, take my word for it; don't worry too much about the OEQs. I will see it as a VERY unlikely scenario that a person who

    a) Is active on these forums

    b) Is able to pass the lab portition

    would fail the OEQs.

    First hand information: They really are SHORT questions. Answers are mostly one word, at most 2-5 words. They ask things like "how big is John's penis?". I loved them, they didn't leave any space for intepretation or excuses, simple facts.

    (cant resist)

    that's not a good example of a question that doesn't leave space for interpretation .... [:P] [:$]

     

    but on the rest of your post--yeah i agree....short, sweet and simple

    It all depends how well you know John, doesn't it :) ?

    So putting "He has one?" really wasn't the answer they were looking for?



    ;)   Sorry, couldn't resist.

  • too bad you can't run any "show" commands during that section...... [:O]

  • why you are assuming that John is a man?

  • why you are assuming that John is a man?

    Heh... if it was a real Cisco OEQ question, I would assume that given no other constraints John must have been a woman, and I would obviously answer "zero" [H]

    Every Cisco question is a tricky question...

  • any feedback or experience of OEQ ??
