CCNP Bootcamp – 2nd Day of class (Part 4)

First a recap of the studying/homework went. Spent about 4 1/2 hours going through the material supplied by the instructor for the class, Jeff Ratchford. Some of it I recognized from my previous studying for the route exam, some was new territory. A couple of times during the reading, I had to get up, stretch my legs and give my eyes a break for a few minutes.

For those of you who havent already guessed, I am taking the CCNP Bootcamp with CCBootcamp in Henderson, NV. I have used them in the past and was pleased with both the instructor and what I learned. Passing the test helped too !

With the level of intensity that you can expect to be going through with the material, when you get a break class, get up and walk around. If you have more than a few minutes, step outside and get a breath of fresh air. In a slight departure from what I did at the first Bootcamp I attended, this time although I brought food with to me to help control costs and to eat a little healthier, I found a nice salad bar type restaurant just around the corner from CCBootcamp. The price of the meal is responsible, it gets me out of the building for a bit and the walk doesnt hurt either.

Something to check on the laptop that you will be bring to class is your DNS settings. I had hardcoded my laptop to my IPv6 Tunnel Broker DNS settings at home and forgot I had done that. Had problems in class getting to the local terminal server used by class. After checking several things, I took out the manual DNS settings I had entered, refreshed dhcp and I got in with no problems.

Spent the rest of the day working on OSPF. If you havent dealt with IPv6 to any degree, it will help a lot to have some familiarity with it before you come to Bootcamp. Have several more hours of studying tonight and then back to class tomorrow.
