Chad Stambaugh, CCIE #45506
CCIE has been a life goal for me for the last 10 years, since I started into the professional world of networking. Recently in the last year I really started to go for it. I passed my written the same month of Cisco LIVE (25). I attended Cisco LIVE and it was the perfect motivation to push as hard as possible to attain my goal.
INE played a definite role in my success. I am so glad INE decided to really make you a true expert in the field, not just chase after the lab alone. This is what helps separate the good and the great, and is why I was able to pass my lab attempt on the first try!
