Mihai Vasile, CCIE #25510
I just wanted to let you know that I got my CCIE R&S number yesterday in Brussels. My number is 25510. I started in early 2007 with the INE workbooks, complete set. At that time, it was still version 4.0. In the meantime version 5 came out. I also used a lot of rack time from INE in 12 hours sessions that started at 6:00AM until 17:30 local time due to the time zone difference. Then we moved to our own rack in the company premises and allowed me to work on it anytime and from anywhere, whenever I had time for this. I stopped counting how many weekends, vacation days I spent on this rack using the INE workbooks. The last 6 weeks for me were doing the INE R&S WB Volume1 version 5. This is a great source of information, very well written, with lots of details. I cannot recommend it strongly enough! Peter's 400 pages CoS section (but not only) is simply amazing. I must say that all INE materials that I worked with is simply awesome!!! I would like to thank INE for their products and great instructors. And I am glad to see that the team is growing with new expert names. Brians were great to listen on the CoD. I had to listen CoD 3 times in order to get ALL the details they talk about. Especially Scott, you were simply great during the boot camp last November in Reno!! Anthony was also special !! All this helped me during my preparation. Thank you again and all the best for you guys !
