How do ppl study for the STP questions?

How does everyone suggest studying for STP questions?


My thought is to set up 4-8 switch combos in Packet Tracer.  Use "sh ver" on each switch to find out the base MAC address, then work out on paper which switch will be root, which ports will be root ports, and which ports will be designated ports, then check my work using the "show spanning-tree" commands.


Then - on the bigger ones, setting link costs and/or root elections and determining what the new topology will be on paper, then - again - checking my work.


STP seems to be the ICND2 equivalent of Subnetting on the first exam - kicks your **** if you don't get it down right.  So I welcome any and all suggestions on study techniques.
