I am happy to announce that I finally made it, I passed my CCIE lab
in Bangalore on 2nd August, 2011, it was my 2nd attempt. Well It is
wonderful to see a "PASS" word on screen for CCIE RnS lab score. I do
remember when I was in the beginning of the trip which is the MCSE
course and there was an overview for the CCIE and the instructor said
that "you will know more if you will go for the CCNA" and I replied
"after 5 years" :" but actually I'm MCSE, MCTS, MCITP, CCNA, CCNP, CCIP
and now CCIE RnS after 4 years. My CCIE journey started after I have
cleared my first CCIE written exam on 7th of Sept, 2009 and than on
11th of JAN, 2010 Attempt made me realize how tough it can go.Than
After 17 months again i cleared CCIE written exam on 1st of June,2011
and now i passed CCIE RnS LAB on 2nd August, 2011. I felt more
relieved than excited. Reading other folks' experience, advices and
comments, it helps me to identify my weakness, where I went wrong and
need to work on. More importantly, I know that I am not alone in this
long and tough journey with countless hours of constant
reading/re-reading and countless practicing lab. For practice, I
used: INE WB Vol 1,2,3,4, Advanced Technologies VoD R&S Open Lecture
Series CoD, Mock Labs,Bootcamps, V-Seminars, Cisco 360 TS labs,
Narbik TS labs etc.

Little advice on the lab day:
Don't panic, Don't make any last-minute changes, Troubleshooing
section is challenging, Time management is the key, Read the "Lab Do
and Don't" section carefully.

Thanks to GOD, IEOC community,forums,instructors {Brian
