    Default CCIE wannabees

    Well I thought I would put up a thread that may be a sticky. Essentially anyone with a written pass who is fully engaged in lab prep please let yourself be known here. This can be a good thread for those actively working on lab prep and to swap notes on workbooks, resources and general banter on lab preparations. It will also be useful for observers with CCIE aspirations. I encourage everyone to keep their own CCIE lab thread/blogs going. This will be an officers mess to exchange ideas, keep people motivated and workgroup.

    I can swap ICQ number to students if they send me a PM.

    Hola, folks.

    Passed the written last month and now using Narbik Kocharians Advanced 2.0 for
    my Volume I prep.

    Right off the bat:
    I have to go Ŕ la carte for Vol. II. I looked at Netmaster (Cisco 360), but I hear they're
    a little dated. Any thoughts compared to Netmaster vs INE vs IPX?


    Thanks in adv.

    haven't taken written yet, can you guys give some advice on study materials? Someone had mentioned to me that all I needed was the Exam guide for the written. In anycase I'm finishingup NP tomorrow(hopefully) with ISCW.

    Here. But not really. I check this site a few times a week and probably miss a lot of good material. I had to reschedule my lab exam to:

    Sept 27th, 2010 at RTP

    Due to my small business that I started. Now that it is in full stride and pretty much done, I am back to the trenches and almost done with INE Vol 2 labs. I hope to get all Vol 3 speed labs done before the test date and then go back over some IP Security features. I feel pretty confident in troubleshooting, so we'll see what happens.

    Speed is Key!

    Back to the grind...

    Very true. You need to get the hours in, regularly and almost every day. Particularly the 3 - 4 hour sessions if you can find the time. That's always been a struggle for me. Good luck with it.

    Turgon,

    Is the 7/9/2001 date of your CCIE written pass date a typo?

    I think he means he's done the written in 2001, 2007 and 2009.

    That's right I have cleared it three times. After the 2001 pass in November I studied for the lab on and off until March 2003 but work and life got in the way. I have been steady on lab prep since May 2007 although usually didn't have enough time to put a lot of rack hours in each week. Getting there now though so should test late this year or in the Spring although work is taking all my time and energy at present.

    It looks like a couple of CCIE threads on the boards are dying now so it will be good to have some company. Finding the hours is a killer though. Tough track..tough track.

    I'm still reading my stack o' books for the written. That recommended reading list is bananas.

    But I'm hoping the more time I put into the written the better the knowledge will translate to the lab.

    Thats why its one of the most dumped tests out there. Fierce time pressure. You must get through the first half of the exam economically on time or you have too much to do. Its a hard test but doable, stick at it.

    I likely won't ever do the CCIE Voice lab to be honest. The written would just be if I felt more comfortable than R&S written, since I have not touched MPLS, IPv6, etc, in so long.

    But, on that note, I will be doing the CCVP this winter I think.



    Sitting in the CCIE voice bootcamp with INE this week. Day one over, very well setup so far, and lots of great engineers in the class. Really wish I took something like this before going into the R&S lab, phew! Considering the bootcamps are hardly much more than an attempt at the lab, and is easily 'worth' the same as sitting the lab once (maybe more?), I really suggest going to one if you can.

    i'm here and was putting off the CCIE for a long time now. I now have plenty of funds to put towards funding my CCIE and have given up all of my hobbies to be able to do this. I know the commitment it takes by reading posts and now Turgon's posts. I bought a Tripp-lite rack and started piecing together the routetrs, cabling, and switches. It has been fund thus far but am seriously rusty with the technologies as I do not use them at work.
