    Great news. I’ve got the R&S package and passed the lab using IE products. I’m going to study for my SP CCIE, but I want to do my CCIP before. I will definately be using the new V5.0 BGP section for my BGP exam coming up soon!!

    @Colin West

    This will be overkill for the BGP exam, just took it, it was pretty darn easy. I kept rereading the simulation q’s because they weren’t asking enough, I thought I was missing something. If you are already a CCIE in R&S you should just go take the exam.

    This is great thanks IE.

  13. Colin West says:
