Prep for Lab Exams

Starting 2017-Q4 we now require that all students show that certain labs have been completed in their lab workbook prior to starting their lab exam.  This helps students prepare for the lab exam.  It also helps provide some guidance on what to expect during the lab exam.  We don’t want you to show up for a lab exam without CLI experience.  Below are the list of labs that must be shown to be complete for each course.  If you have completed more that’s even better.  The list below are the minimum requirement.

Instructors reserve the right to refuse to allow students to take their lab exam if they cannot show that they have completed the specified labs.
