Neil Briscoe, CCIE #48817
Glad to announce that I passed the CCIE R&S V5 pretty much off the back of INE material! I used the CCIE R&S V5 ATC to build on existing knowledge and go into the level of detail that I required, then moved on to the more exciting part... the labbing! Although, at first, I was not liking the idea of lab task numbering and an awkward looking PDF of the WB V5, I found that using the online GUI was the best thing ever and worth the money I paid for the bundle... the ease of use and lack of messing around when labbing each night meant that I was spending quality time using the WB. Everything in the lab exam was covered in the ATC and labs - no surprises. In some cases, the labs in the WB were harder than the actual exam in Brussels - this put me in good stead. I've had a week off from studying - a week at the beach - but now I am back, and because I enjoyed the INE R&S materials so much, I am now looking at the INE CCIE SPv4 track! Without INE (and Brian's interpretation of technologies), there is no way I would have passed my CCIE R&S or enjoyed the 9 month journey... again, thank you to INE for the standard & quality of material...!
