Recommended order of studying

Post by daniel.larsson on Fri May 08, 2015 12:02 am

I will here create a list of all the CCIE RSv5 Blueprint topics and in which order it's recommended to study them for optimal Learning.
The Cisco website lists all the Technologies that you need to master, but are extremely vague in some areas. And it's not listed in a very good order, so this list is basically the CCIE RSv5 Blueprint re-ordered by Brian McGahan (4x CCIE + CCDE) to cover all the RSv5 topics from the basics up to the most advanced stuff.

I am personally using this order of studying and i find it to be very excellent and it makes sure I don't miss a thing.

The list may be updated but you can view it at INE along with some user comments here:
