Vakeesan Thevarajah, CCIE #43898
I passed my CCIE R&S lab in Brussels on 27th May 2014 (on my first attempt). This would not be possible without the INE workbooks. I used Volume I (I will keep this the rest of my career as a reference point), Volume II and part of III (it really sped up the core topics), Plus Brian's ATC videos. I learned most of the blueprint topics from it. I am regular visitor of the INE forum, where I got the idea and detailed steps to setup and configure my own lab equipment with GNS3 and real switches with break out switch (Hybrid topology). It was really helpful to me to get hands-on experience. Thanks a lot for everything.
