The time has come…

Well tomorrow I am taking the plunge and taking my ROUTE (642-902) exam.

I began to suffer from ‘keep-pushing-it-back’ syndrome where I kept saying to myself that I would do it next week, then the same would happen the week after etc etc.

I just have a few final points to go over and hopefully the different LSA-types will finally stick, I always manage to forget which way around they are, if anyone happens to have an easy way to remember them then let me know! 😛

Well I will post tomorrow with the big news, until then have a good day 🙂

  1. I always remember the LSAs from the perspective of within area, then between areas, then outside OSPF. Then for within an area, and outside OSPF, I always think router first, then networks advertised second, so…

    LSA 1 = Router (Router first, in area) LSA 2 = Network (networks second, in area) LSA 3 = Summary LSA (between areas, from the ABR) LSA 4 = ASBR-Summary LSA (Router first, outside OSPF) LSA 5 = External LSA (Networks second, outside OSPF)

    Then just think that LSA 7 is the same as LSA 5 except in NSSA areas.

    Still not exactly childs play, but I think of like that because it helps describe function as well as order.
