Michael Osman, CCIE #28109
I'm glad to report that after a long, arduous journey, I passed the CCIE R&S lab exam at San Jose on February 1. This was my second attempt. My number is 28109. I would like to thank everyone at INE for their excellent workbooks, classes on demand, and live classes. I am especially grateful for Petr's invaluable assistance and guidance since we met at the live class in Tampa in November. The quality of the class itself was top notch. I had been studying on my own for months and had a ton of questions "bottled up" that needed to be answered. Petr of course was able to answer each one of them in a very clear manner. We stayed in touch after the class and Petr continued his support of my studying effort. I sent him 2-3 e-mails per week and Petr was always very responsive. In addition to the technical aspects of my training, Petr also helped with strategy. For instance, after my first attempt in December, Petr helped me put together a detailed schedule to prepare for my second attempt. It's been a great experience. I will relax for a couple weeks and then decide what my next challenge will be. If it is CCIE-related, I will certainly be in touch.
