Hello. I am Larry Hadrava, CCIE #12203. I earned my number on September 4th. 2003. When I was studying there was only one main vendor of CCIE study materials with another one just beginning. At that time there was only written labs available with no explanations – just the labs and the pre and final configurations.
Today there are a number of quality companies offering CCIE training materials in many different forms. I have done work for a couple of these companies developing and supporting the materials and have reviewed the materials from other companies.
This blog is created with the CCIE candidate in mind. It is a VENDOR NEUTRAL place where you can openly and honestly exchange ideas about CCIE training materials available. Feel free to ask questions of current users BEFORE you invest your hard earned money.
