Hi, I believe this is in reference to the fact that you could have completed a tonne of core topics (i.e. Layer2 and routing) then in the Security section applied an acl as per the lab and inadvertently broke routing from before and not noticed. If you do the IPExperts or InternetworkExperts lab strategy videos they cover this well. Also, both vendors lab books have labs where this issue shows up and you can learn from that too ...

   1. Read the entire exam first and check for addressing issues. Do
   skip any details or sections.

   2. Manage your time. Make a plan to cover all the sections in the
   provided. Work out how much time you will spend on each section,
 keeping in
   mind the point value of the questions. Don't forget to allow time at
 the end
   to verify your solutions.

   3. Clarify the requirements of each question. Don't assume
   requirements that aren't mentioned in the question. During the lab,
 if you
   are in any doubt, verify your understanding of the question with the

   4. Do each question as a unit. Configure and verify before moving to
   the next question. You may want to redraw the topology with all the
   available. This will help you visualize and map the network.

   5. Troubleshoot. You must know how to troubleshoot using the tools
   available. Although troubleshooting is important, don't lose too
 much time
   working on a 2- or 3-point question. If you're caught off-guard by
   unfamiliar topic, don't let it absorb too much time. Work on the
 things you
   are more comfortable with and go back to difficult items later.

   6. Keep a list. During the exam, make notes on configurations and
   settings as you move through the exam. Make a separate list for
 items you
   have not been able to address or where you have not achieved the
   result which you'll need to revisit.

   7. Test your work. *Never rely on a configuration done in the early
   hours of the exam.* *There is a possibility that an item you
   configured a few sections earlier can become broken and
   *. Keep in mind that points are awarded for working configuration

   8. Save your configurations often.

   9. Don't make any drastic changes in the last half hour of the exam.

   10. Speed is vital on the exam. Review and practice core material
   week before the exam to ensure you can move quickly through the less
   challenging questions.

Can anyone Understood what Cisco says on 7th tip

 Is it engage troubleshooting part  which fashioned by CISCO ?

People says you will analyze your configuration difference before BREAK
AFTER break ? Is it ?

I hope, by this email I am not going to break NDA rule.........
