Andhi Indarto, CCIE #23647
I started my CCIE Service Provider journey back in 2012 when I bought the CCIE SP Bundle. I started out using Advanced Technologies and there was a lot of important information that I learned. I then continued with mastering the Cisco Doc for all possible commands and technologies in CCIE SP. I am handling the MPLS Network in my job so I had quite enough basic knowledge and after I got a more in-depth understanding of MPLS Network stuff, I was starting to do INE Workbook volume 1 for each of technology lab. I usually studied for 3 or 4 hours every 01 - 04 am early morning and continued for a whole day in Saturday and Sunday. The time was ticking very fast and I realized that I only had 2 months left, and started to do INE Workbook volume 3. My first CCIE Lab booking was on 10 October 2012 but unfortunately I could not attend the Lab exam. I thought positively so I could learn more and try to study INE Workbook Vol 2 and again studied INE Workbook Vol 3. My second attempt was on 9 October 2013 but it was not my luck, I almost passed the CCIE SP based on my score report. So once again I studied INE Workbook Vol 2 and 3 and also I watched CCIE SP Lab Preparation Bootcamp videos. I booked my 3rd attempt on 3 April 2014 and It was my day, I passed CCIE SP on my 3rd attempt and it was great feeling since I have been through a long and winding journey. Thank you INE for your great study resources.
