Patrick Nda, CCIE #23526
I started my preparation using some routers I bought from ebay and other and some random support from an vendors. I failed once at the lab. Then I discovered IE Workbook and Online Bootcamp. This drastically changed my learning curved and made me realized that I had been wasting my time before. IE has a wonderful WB which helps you get above the crowd and reach a the right level to pass the CCIE Lab and go beyond. Any one, CCIE candidate or not should, use these IE materials as guide in the networking industry.
