Build the lab topology as per Figure 1-1 and Figure 1-2.
Configure your chosen Frame Relay switch router to provide the necessary data-link control identifiers (DLCIs) as per Figure 1-4 or load the Frame Relay switch configuration from the CD-ROM.
Configure the IP addresses on each router as shown in Figure 1-9 and add the loopback addresses (do not configure the Frame Relay or ATM IP addresses yet as you will need to select interface types within the lab beforehand); alternatively, you can load the initial configuration files from the CD-ROM.
Configure passwords on all devices for console and vty access to "cisco" if not loading the initial configuration files.
If you find yourself running out of time, choose questions that you are confident you can answer correctly. Another approach would be to choose questions with a higher point rating to maximize your potential score.
