CCIE

I finally passed the Routing and Switching Exam and became CCIE #30864 !!! One of the happiest moments in my technical career :) This was my second attempt...
I mainly used Workbooks Volume 1 and 2. For candidates who are preparing, I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to master all the scenarios in Volume-1 workbook. INE material is excellent and essential for all candidates preparing for their CCIE
I want to thank all the INE Instructors including Brian McGahan and Anthony Sequeria. I watched the free vseminar on "Secrets to Version 4 Routing and Switching Success" by Anthony and really loved it.. And Brian McGahan's blog posts are really awesome...Thanks a lot INE for helping me achieve this milestone

Update! April 30, 2015: I finally became a 3xCCIE (R&S, DC and SP), the latest one being the SP Track. If I had to pick one star of the show throughout my journey, it is undoubtedly Brian McGahan. I've used his workbooks and videos for all my CCIEs. Being a Cisco employee, I did have the advantage of working with the technologies on a daily basis but it's because of the INE material that I was able to pass the SP exam after preparing for only 4 months !!! Brian's knowledge and experience is truly inspiring. I think this is probably my last CCIE and I want to say that Brian Mcgahan's and INE's material made the entire journey very enjoyable. Thank you so much Brian!
