For someone who went the self-funded way the self-paced products are quite simply the best complete set of training tools on the market. The Class-on-Demand was so resourceful and entertaining that I took a total of 4 weeks off work just to watch it twice! The volume one labs cemented the skills learned in all that book reading and the COD. The Core workbook did exactly what it was supposed to - increased my speed and accuracy on the core topics. The Volume two lab workbook, what can I say, it's the devil's work for sure, but it really took me over the edge and beyond in terms of truly understanding the protocols and their interactions and caveats. Once again, a big thank you to all the team at IE for delivering (and supporting) such great products and helping me on my journey towards internetworking expertise.
