    Congratulations to INE's latest success stories!

    Posted byPetr Lapukhov

    Hi guys,

    Before we do any more technical posting, here is a list of the lucky folks (well, some of them), who got their CCIE numbers recently! Those must be the last ones who have taken the "old" CCIE blueprint. Let's hope the new lab blueprint will not be a problem for those of you who are still preparing. It's our mission to make sure it is not! ;) Now for the list and the success stories!

    tough week, been testing and releasing the new updated mock labs!. Now working on the detailed usage guide for IEWB-RS VOL1, to allow people get the most use of their limited study time!

    • Ricard Badia, CCIE #25480 (R&S)
    • David Bluett, CCIE #25437 (R&S)

    Hey All,

    I actually got the news less then 3 hours after my lab last Thursday, but
    the celebration was ongoing :)

    GS is a pretty cool resource, Darby and Nimmers from here helped me out with
    a book list for final OEQ / LAB preparation and cheers to the people who
    helped me out with the odd question I posted.

    Like a lot of people I was fairly overwhelmed originally with Internetwork
    Experts 5.0 Volume I workbooks but I worked on through it all (QOS broke my
    brain, but im glad I covered it in that detail) and then reviewed when
    required after seeing the scenario in a slightly different way which didn't
    make sense or I got the scenario incorrect(or different) in their Volume II

    Going through the Volume I workbook, reading about each of the variations
    and the core technologies in the book and then on the DOCCD was a great

    The extra info I got on here and on IEOC (and via the Mock Labs - if you
    were thinking of doing these but aren't sure if they are worth it, do it)
    from the entire INE crew was absolutely incredible, Larry Hadrava, Petr Lapukhov
    (Brain busting blog posts) and the Brians (COD videos) really gave me the
    extra detail and info required to understand each technology down to the
    expert level.

    The lab proctor Scott was a really funny guy, was there all day to answer
    questions (questions about the questions, not the answer), tell some funny
    stories at lunch and before the lab, I was pretty laid back and relaxed for
    the day, in part because of the atmosphere that he helped to create.

    Thanks to all people who take the time to post up informative and on-topic
    posts and _massive_ thanks to the Internetwork Expert guys for the
    incredible quality materials and the community participation.

    Martin Hogan, CCIE# 25636


    I wanted to thank Brian McGahan for sharing with us at the
    bootcamp so many tips and for explaining very well the technologies
    for RS. I also watched the Adv. Tech VoDs (invaluable), did 15 Labs,
    3 mock labs and the Core knowledge Sim questions. I was fortunate to
    pass the lab on the first attempt, thanks to all the great info from
    your products and the labs. I will definitely be using your products
    again for the next CCIE.

    Hi Internetworkexpert,

    I'd like to let you know I passed my CCIE Routing and switching exam
    on the 16th of September 2009.

    My study materials included your DVD Class on Demand, and 3
    workbooks. Without these materials preparation for the lab would have
    been far more difficult.

    Thank you for your excellent products.

    David Bluett CCIE #25437


    I passed my CCIE R&S on the first try. I took the test because it was
    my last chance before the new version of the lab came out. I really
    did not think I was ready for the lab yet. However, I still passed.
    The ATC course and the Mock Labs definitely prepared me for the

    Thank you,
