When I try to type the command into Instant Command Recall nothing happens why?

The Superputty emulator needs to be clicked in at the exact point where you want the type to appear. For example:
Click the window to the right of the # sign to tell Superputty where you want your command to go.
When you have finished the command hit enter….ICR will give you a result….correct or incorrect

If incorrect it will provide you with a button that says “tell me the right answer”
Hit that button to get the right answer.
Click in the Superputty window on the next line ….to try the next command or hit the reset at the bottom or top of page to try the same command again.

Why was ICR created?

Having studied both the CCIE R&S track and the CCIE DC track….and although it is possible to get access to labs in R&S, in DC it is very difficult
I felt we needed a learning process which taught us mastery of the commands, and in such a way that we could quickly fire up a webpage when we have 30 minutes to spare, and hammer them without having to set up a whole lab first.

But, even more importantly I could use a spaced repetition memory process on those commands so that I retain them in my long term memory and can easily recall them when needed in the exam.

In ICR why must you put the whole command and not the shortened command as you would in a Nx-os or IOS device?

Command line help features are not enabled in ICR, bit I have found that the full command is easier to retain in your long term memory, by assigning the different words of a long command to different rooms of your house, you create a link between something familiar and something you are trying to retain…..it works…try it for yourself!
In ICR, when configuring a technology, like for instance OTV…why do you say

“relevant southbound interface” or similar…instead of telling us what the interface actually is?
I have found that students (me included) get faster and faster as we progress through the different “code blocks”, and that means that if we don’t have to look up at the diagram to understand what we are connecting to and how…..we tend to shoot past it without keeping a mental picture in our head of what we are configuring…….I find this picture to be essential to good network engineering practice.
