Hi RB,

After doing Two CCIE's I realized that besides knowing all the technologies there is a huge non-technical aspect of the CCIE lab that is not there in any book.


After talking to a large number of CCIEs and months of work I am pleased to announce that my first book "Your CCIE Lab Success Strategy the non-technical guidebook" is listed on Amazon now. (Search for CCIE Strategy on Amazon.com) This book covers the non-technical aspects of the CCIE Lab exam like


How much time does it take to do a CCIE?

How can I do a full time job and still study efficiently?

A Timetable to follow

The dos and donts and much more.


You can also preview this book at www.2doubleccies.com.


I am an engineer like you and welcome your comments. So check it out and let me know what you think.
