Internetwork Expert, What a journey this year has been. I have been close to making a serious attempt at the CCIE R&S lab exam for the last couple of years but never felt like I was really ready. I used 'other' training materials from your competitors as well as training classes from Cisco authorized training partners but none of them prepared me for the lab exam like IE's products did. There are no shortcuts when it comes to passing the lab exam - hard work, self-sacrifice, study, and practice, practice, practice are the key. You provide a mountain of material to master and as you have said before - if everyone makes the effort, they will be rewarded by passing the lab exam as a by-product of their understanding of the technologies and how they operate together - not because they can deal with scenarios they have seen before in practice lab after practice lab. The real exam was a perfect example of this - it will test the limits of your fundamental knowledge, so come prepared and be confident in what you have learned. I passed my CCIE R&S lab in RTP on my first attempt and would be honored to be added to 'the list'! Sincerely,
