Joseph Bigelli, CCIE #20854
Dear Brian, Brian, Mike and everyone at Internetwork Expert.... It is with great joy and jubilation that I make the announcement that I have successfully passed the CCIE R&S lab on Friday May 16, 2008 and I am proud to wear the badge of Cisco CCIE number 20854, after a number of attempts(too many for my liking)!!! It has been a huge learning curve for me throughout this whole process and I can say 'thank you' for providing me with the complete tools for acquiring the knowledge and understanding of this broad topic. Without the great teaching and explanations in depth of all the technologies required for the lab but also furthermore for the opportunity to face real world application, situation and scenarios and to be equipped with a foundation of information and technical understanding that I could find nowhere else. You Brian's are the number one instructors out there and the service, advice and consultations provided by Mike and his crew has been top class from the beginning. I am planning to make use of the COD course's for my future endeavors as a reference tool as I continue to expand my current level to a professional scale and I know that I will make use of the other products that are available, some of which I already have been a subscriber to, namely, Voice COD and Service Provider COD. Once again, thank you for conveying your knowledge and experience to us but moreover for maintaining the highest standards of teaching and having the best possible information and quality delivered to us regularly!
