Hello Gajanan,

Welcome! Only 6 weeks left. Exciting :slight_smile: is this your first attempt?


Hello Rene,

Yes i am really excited and scared at the same time. its my first attempt and this is the first time i was able to study it consistently. In 2017-2018 i studied CCIE R&S theory [ right after my CCNP- took me 3 years to pass all three exams ] part for about 8 to 9 month [Completed Routing TCP/IP volume1/2 and other books ] but could not go for lab study due to some commitments. This time i put my all efforts on just lab practice and on some theory.

Your writing and crystal clear article really helping me to revise the things. Thanks a lot for that.


Hi Gajanan,

I am glad to hear my work is useful to you. CCIE is scary. You study for so long and then you have to prove it. The passing score is high and it’s not an easy exam.

At the stage you are now in I can only recommend to lab, lab, lab and lab until you can dream any command and can convert any lab task requirements into configurations in notepad without blinking an eye.

When you have your configurations in notepad, paste them on your devices, do a quick check and move on. When the entire configuration is complete, go through the task requirements again and verify everything.


Thanks Rene for the tip. thanks for ur support
