CCIE

Passed R&S on my first attempt. I firmly believe that it was almost impossible without IE. IE is special in that its material actually TEACHES you. Unlike others, there is no cramming, lists of gotchas, watch outs and as Brian Dennis says, no stupid router tricks. I have attended a boot camp from an instructor and used lab workbooks from some other vendors. Although they are good but nothing matches IE in quality and continuous improvement. If you have only one choice, its InternetworkExpert. The CoD modules are thorough, explain the technology in great detail and do not cut on time. All backed up by excellent articles on the blog and clear & concise answers to the questions. I don't know if any other vendor has such excellent blogs where there are ONLY TECHNICAL discussions without any vendor war involved. Brians, Scott, Peter and Anthony are all eager to help you LEARN the technology and that's what has created a lot of respect for them. Thanks guys for your excellent support. To all R&S candidates, I will highly recommend IE. Do not go for your exam without attempting the Mock Labs first. They look simple and easy but really shock you when you get a 54 while expecting 80s. IE will be my definite choice for my next track.
