Andrew M Still, CCIE #6974
I began studying for my CCIE back in 1999 whilst working for a national Insurance company. I used the INE Routing an Switching workbooks and mock labs. I was lucky enough that my company sponsored equipment purchase to build out a real lab and that coupled with the excellent INE resources enabled me to pass the lab exam in March 2001. I further purchased the INE Security workbook and mock labs to begin studying for the Security CCIE, however soon after I changed jobs and did not pursue this cert. However I did still make extensive use of the INE workbooks as reference material for various deployments. Thanks Team INE!
