CCIE

I began my CCIE journey in July 2013. It took me almost 2 years but I finally made it. I would like to thank INE for all their study materials which helped me in getting my dream certification in my first attempt. INE's study materials helped me a lot to understand the technology. It would not have been possible getting this special number without INE?s workbooks, videos and rack rentals. The most valuable resource I found was Brian McGahan?s video lectures. As I had All Access Pass (AAP) membership, I was able to watch pretty much everything about the Data Center track. I had a decent Nexus experience from real life but Storage was still my biggest weakness as historically, network engineers have never managed it (it is generally associated to dedicated Storage or Wintel teams) but INE?s study material along with the Storage videos really made this possible for me. The Storage videos brought me from ZERO SAN knowledge up to being able to pass the exam. AAP is probably the best investment I have ever made in my career. The membership costs less than a cup of coffee per day and I would highly recommend it. I have already started studying for my next CCIE (R&S) and will be using INE?s workbooks, videos and rack rentals for the next 18-24 months. Finally, I?d like to thank my wife, and 2 sons for sticking by me when everyone else including myself gave up. I was ready to give up on the CCIE dream more times than I could count. I'm a true example what an average person can do if they put their mind to it. Never give up!! Farzad Cheema CCIE #48921 - CCIE Data Center
