The R&S CCIE Volume 2 workbook has been ported to our new web format (see below). This format allows you to add bookmarks, add notes (both private and public notes) and ensures you always have the latest version. Additionally you can submit feedback directly to the Development and Editing teams from within workbook. We are also working on integrating our IEOC forum directly into the workbook and plan on having it available late October.
For the notes, we are currently implementing a rating system that will allow you to rate a public note posted by someone else. This will allow you to filter public notes that are not above a certain rating if desired. This new public notes feature will be really popular based on the feedback we have received from the beta testers. The R&S Volume 2 in the new web format will be released next week.
R&S Volume 3 workbook has been updated. This updated version will be available later this week in your members site account. This is the last major update to Volume 3 before it is retired and integrated into the new single R&Sv5 blueprint based workbook we are already developing.
Q - Will I automatically get the new workbook when its released next week if I have the current workbook?
A - Yes. The workbook will automatically show up in your members site account next week.
Q - Will I be able to view it offline?
A - Yes. A PDF version will automatically be generated when a change is made to the workbook.
Q - Can I view it on my tablet?
A - Yes the new format is pure HTML5 which is support by all modern tablet web browsers. This is the first step before we release it as an iPad/iPhone app and Android app. The tablet app will allow you to take the workbooks "offline" and still make notes, bookmarks, etc that will sync up when you get back online.
Q - Does this include new material?
A - We had to freeze any development while the workbook was ported to the web. Now that the workbook is up we'll start adding new content. We have 3 additional labs to add to the workbook now.
Lastly Volume I is currently being ported to the web and I'll release it in chunks as each section is finished. Currently the IP Routing section has been ported. I'm reviewing it before release and adding more PfR/OER labs.
