RIPv2 and EIGRP For CCIEv5 Lab Exam

RIPv2 and EIGRP For CCIEv5 Lab Exam

Finally we get to the fun stuff :) Routing Protocols. RIPv2 and EIGRP. I’m currently working towards the CCIE Routing and Switching Lab Exam version 5.0 and I’m following on from the Cisco provided blueprint. Below are a portion of RIPv2 and EIGRP sub topics I’m currently studying that align with the Cisco blueprint. I’ve also linked to the relevant page in the documentation. This is the same documentation available to exam candidates in the exam.

I’m often trying to find where each of the topics from the CCIE R&S Blueprint is within the Cisco documentation (aka Cisco DocCD) so I can quickly find what I need in the Lab Exam, some topics are pretty straightforward and some take me a while to find. I’ll outline more topics as I work through the Blueprint. I also plan to add my own studynotes to go along with the official documentation. Let me know if you see any errors or omissions.
