Joel Richard Brook, CCIE #46813
I began studying for my CCIE straight out of university. Armed with a lack of on the job and lab experience, I headed down the dark path of doom that is the CCIE non-the less. Luckily I was starting a graduate program at the same time for on the job experience. I have spent the past 18 months juggling this new role as well as studying 3-5 hours a day on average. Luckily these days the CCIE has a lot of resources available online such as INE. If these were unavailable to purchase I do not know if I would of been able to pass the lab, let alone on the first attempt. Thankfully at the end of it all I have my number. I attempt to have a life for a little time before hitting up the next project :) Thanks!
