M. Kismayuwalla, CCIE #40215
I decided to pursue for the CCIE 2 years ago. I completed my CCNA and CCNP using the INE Videos. I then purchased the CCIE R/S Video Bundle and some Rack Rentals as well. After going through each Advanced Technology Class videos, i realized how much work has gone into making it. But it is those videos that shaped my path to achieve my CCIE. After 2 years of hard work, I have finally achieved my CCIE. Now i intend to move further with CCIE Data Center and i have already purchased those video class as well. My advice for fellow CCIE Pursuers is... 1. Don't rush, if you think you you are good at STP, go deeper, learn about a BPDU packet in detail etc etc...but DON'T RUSH. 2. Don't be discouraged. If you fail once, twice or thrice. Don't let it discourage you. If you know your stuff, you will pass. As for the study methodology, INE already has the best one in place with Workbook 1-5. But remember- learn the technology, master the technology, Practice the technology. Don't skip the Mastering in the middle. I would like to end by thanking INE for such complete and comprehensive material.
