This weekend I have finished reading over EIGRP (more study notes to come) and started to lab and put into practice the theory.
I have at my disposal the GNS3 Labs from CBT Nuggets ROUTE track, the Network Academy ROUTE Lab book.
These two resources provide a solid foundation to my practical studies. I have found that they give me directions when trying to lab a new concept. This then gets me rolling and then I can make my own to ensure the topic is firmly embedded in my brain and not leaking out my other ear.
I believe the best way to make it stick is blog examples of my configurations with an imaginary company.
Not sure of the name just yet but I do believe it will help.
