INE.com CCIE Voice Rack Rental Service Review


   It's Sunday morning 10a.m.. I'm at my work since 7a.m. for another lab session using the INE's Rack service (or maybe not :-/ ). That means I woke up at 6a.m. instead being at the warmness of my home relaxing as normal people do. I'm here... Again... My every day life has changed since September (after the Bootcamp that is) doing these sessions every day in order to be prepared. Maybe you're wondering why am I blogging then instead of configuring my lab. Well... I think you understand where this post is going. I'll try to be honest and make a review for the service that INE provides adding a score from 1 to 5. I'll also share my thought on what you should do when it comes to rack rental. I'm close to the end now just 2 weeks before my first attempt for the lab exam. I'll cover some points in this post and I'll follow up with another post after the exam. Read after the break.

INE.com CCIE Voice Bootcamp Review

Hello again!
   I've finally managed to write a review about the INE.com CCIE Voice Bootcamp. I know that many of you, just like me, are trying to find information about the products that will help you to study for the lab exam. The truth is that there is not so much to discover especially reviews about 3rd party material and content. You may have talked to friends, colleagues or cooperators and have concluded that product A is better than product B. Or maybe you've watched some sample videos and presentations from various training vendors. But you're not exactly sure what is better for you. What I'll try to do is to write a decent review about the INE.com CCIE Voice Bootcamp exclusively based on my experience. Read after the break.

Booked for the CCIE Voice lab exam - Studying update

Hello everyone!

   It's been ages again since the last time I posted. But you see I'm quite busy for two reasons. The obvious first one is that I'm studying as a maniac to catch up. The second one is more of a personal reason that kept occupied for a couple of days. Didn't study as I wanted and now I'm running like hell to prepare myself for the lab exam.

Reading list for the CCIE Voice both written and lab exams

I've updated the Documentation page of the blog. I've added lots of URLs from cisco.com. Basically this is an exclusive cisco.com collection that I believe is a must read while preparing for the lab. Read after the brake.

CCIE Voice lab exam study progress

   It's been a while since my last post (again). To be honest I was planning to post frequent updates about my progress. Suggesting reading material, documents, generally what I thought that it would be worth-full to  study. But the truth is that this is pointless as I see it now after studying for about two months continuously for the lab and before that for the written exam.

UC System Release 9.0 Readiness (lab might change?)

Good morning!

   This is irrelevant to the scope of this blog but I thought it would be useful to know. The UCM Release of version 9.0 soon will be announced! But maybe this is not completely irrelevant concerning the CCIE Voice lab exam after all. Read why after the break.

I've chosen the INE.com study material

   Hello it's been ages since my last post. Of course this has nothing to do with boredom or something like that. The whole project was delayed for a month and a half because

I have to pass the exam in 2012!

Hello everyone!

My employer asked me two weeks ago to make an estimation on how much time do I need to prepare my self and pass the CCIE Voice written and lab exams. He took me by surprise to be honest. "well... I need a lot of time, it's not that simple, I can't do it in 2 moths!" was my first reaction. "maybe 3 then?" was his.
