Instant Command Recall (ICR) - has been designed by Network Engineers to speed up your rate of learning dramatically.
Gaining the depth of technical expertise needed to pass a CCIE exam, comes down to having the commands in your head. ICR forces you to commit what we call "code blocks" to long term, instantly available memory, using "spaced repetition" techniques.
Instructions: Click The "Winning Difference" Link Above To Go To The Instant Command Recall Demo.
Enter the commands laid out below in "Task 1.1 Instructions" into the Putty terminal window (Below). So Command 1, below is "verify the correct VLANS are traversing the VPC".........if you know the command....click in the terminal window to activate Putty, next to the prompt, and hit the enter key. ICR will tell you if the command is correct or not.
For those commands you don't know...simply hit the "Give Me the Answer" button (after an incorrect entry) and get the right answer.
Hit the Reset button, Rinse and Repeat.....It's Intensity and spaced repetition that deepens and speeds your code retention powers!
Below is a sample diagram, to demonstrate in the Full CCIE DC "Instant Command Recall" Course, how we use diagrams to give the overview of the configuration task, which provides the overall concept and allows you to "Peg" the code blocks into the scenario. This closely replicates the low level configuration demands that are set in both the Lab exam and in our day jobs! In this demo the diagram is for demo purposes only, and is not trelevant to the commands....but in the real course the diagram, is the method of pinning our configuration to our scenario, and is vital.
Use full syntax only - so #sh ip int, must be entered as #show ip interface. because, knowing the syntax means you can always shorten it.
Remember to click in the Putty terminal window to activate Putty and tell it where you want your typed command to go.....there is a quick support video (link above) if you need it.
