CCIE Security v5 – Lab exam “Cheat Sheet”

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/app_ntwk_services/waas/waas/v623/configuration/guide/cnfg/apx_apps.html

Nobody can remember every single CLI command or feature tweak possible for every single Cisco product out there – neither should you memorize all of them for the lab exam.

One thing you should focus your memorization on; is how and where to find the commands needed for any configuration.

Welcome Cisco Product Configuration Guides
http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/psa/default.html?mode=prod

The “Product Configuration Guides” should be available during the lab exam and only that (No “Google Search Engine” and no “Cisco Technology Configuration Guides”)

My most used training list:

  • IOS and NX-OS Software -> IOS -> IOS Software Release 15M&T -> IOS 15.5M&T
  • Routers -> Virtual Routers -> Cloud Services Router 1000V Series
  • Security -> Firewalls -> Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) -> ASA 5500-X Series
  • Security -> Firewalls -> Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) -> ASAv
