Thomas Fischer, CCIE #26636 – Routing & Switching

I am proud to let you know, that I passed my CCIE R&S Lab in Brussels on Aug. 5th. This was my second attempt. I want to express my deepest appreciation for your Products. I am a self-paced student, using Vol1 (*****), Vol2 (****) and Vol4 (***). Thanks INE, it feels so good to have a social life again :-) )

Matthew Ayre, CCIE #26654 – Service Provider

Big shout out for INE and their OEQ / lab preparation resources! I just cleared service provider on second attempt finishing about an hour and a half early. Was ~7% of passing the first time using INE 1 & 2 as my primary material then just drilled down on the finer details reading theory. The workbooks really developed the speed and confidence required to beat the exam!

Prateek Madaan, CCIE #26772 – Security

Had been a long and tough journey. Would really like to thank INE from the Core of my heart for facilitating in imparting the skills required not to just pass the exam but to DESERVE it as well…

There are many workbooks available which I prepared along with INE , do not want to name or list any one of them…or make any comparisons…But in comparisons INEs Security Workbooks may sound tough as compared to others BUT once you go through these workbooks is when you actually feel DESERVED the tag rather than just passing it.. Each of these workbooks and the tasks test each and every technology in detail and till the dead end….

In my last attempt on Version 2 I was deprived of the number by 1%, still followed and trusted INE workbooks and finally it helped….Today I am more happy not to procure the number but to actually have the feeling of confidence that ‘YES this time I deserve to be a CCIE’ and all due to the exhaustive INE workbooks….

Olusegun Olurotimi Medeyinlo, CCIE #26683 – Routing & Switching

Congratulations to everyone who passed the CCIE Lab Exam. Our instructors, authors, and staff have been committed to helping you pass your exam for the past seven years and we will continue to make your exam our number one priority. Only at INE.

RFC, or Request for Comments, are documents published that describe various items surrounding computer networking. Generally, these are memorandums published by the Internet Engineering Task Force.

RFCs can be a great resource. For some unknown reason, most candidates preparing for the CCIE don’t take the time to review these documents, which can be very helpful in assisting with understanding the how and why of various networking components. Perhaps the language is a bit dry, or they prefer books with shiny covers.

Question: What is the recommended way to use the product?
Answer: We recommend at the very least doing a four-question simulation each day during your studies. The simulation should quickly pinpoint your weak areas that require additional reading/study.

Question: How many total questions are there?
Answer: We are adding questions every day initially, and then we will add to the database at least every week. We will always offer a method to view all questions no matter how big the database becomes.

We thought we would let our “blog faithful” be the first to know about our new CCIE R/S Core Knowledge Simulation.

Use this tool to help pinpoint potential weaknesses in your knowledge of the vast scope of the R/S blueprint. As you might guess, this tool also helps in overall lab preparation as well, especially with the more vague lab tasks that require quite a bit of implied information.

No matter when your lab date, this query database will continue to grow – so be sure to visit it often. Enjoy your studies, and try not to let two short answer questions ruin your whole day. ☺

There is a new Class-on-Demand for Understanding the Cisco Documentation available for public viewing. This CoD covers the new format of the documentation that has since changed from the old format. Understanding how to navigate the documentation is a vital skill to passing the exam, so if you haven’t spent much time with the new format I would highly recommend you take a look at this CoD.

Happy Labbing!
