Hi Joseph,

Your determination is just amazing :)

About the wording.  My feeling along my attempts was that the real lab
wording was more subtle than the workbooks wording: less
straightforward tasks, requirements hidden in other tasks or just
unverifiable tasks (think of optimization without specific target
parameters or something that you can verify only if you would have
access to the backbone).  My advice is never assume anything if you
are not crystal clear about what is required, read the entire section
before configuring anything and do not over think (tasks just seem
more complicated than they really are - the actual solution, if you
knew it, is usually simple to configure).  Anyway, ask the proctor for
task clarification without shame.

Of course, I don't say anything new, but I just can not keep myself
from saying how important time management and task interpretation
really are.
