cciein8weeks reviews review legit

Excellent material to study for CCIE Written. I recommend it to all who want to learn for CCIE

Urs Weber, Network Engineer
Swisscom

Excellent test prep for CCIE written exam. Really like that when you get answer wrong it has link to documentation with explanations. Also, a plus is the test questions are updated frequently!

Justin Priebe

Small investment for a larger return! The CCIE DC All In One Membership has been an essential resource in studying for my CCIE Datacenter Written exam. This product alone takes the abundance of criteria outlined in the exam blueprint and condenses the essential material into a Study Guide and Practice exams which provide a real-time experience in preparation for your exam. Highly recommended!

Benny Henderson, Cloud Platform Architect
World Wide Technology

Great Study Guides!

Jose Venegas, Computer Engineer Integrator

I highly recommend this study material. It helped me pass the CCIE Collab Written exam a few weeks ago. I agree with the other reviewers – it’s definitely the best study material out there (besides Cisco guides).

I am reasonably impressed with the content in this book, to help kickstart my certification efforts.

Alvin Aung, Senior Network Consultant

Great study materials. Very thorough and complete. Extensive coverage of the topics. There is a lot to review, and will take some time, but if you complete all of it, you will be well prepared. Well worth the price.

Very useful content

Prem Jeevarathinam, Associate Architect, Cloud R&D

The pdf is very helpful and contains a lot of knowledge that is not found in other products. The study plan and quizzes are excellent.

Guido Groeneweg, Sr. Consultant

I have used CCIEin8Weeks to prepare for CCIE CCIE Data Center 400-151 and I find the product excellent preparation material, highly recommend it.

Martin McGannon, VP Network Architecture
State Stree

I came across this site while preparing to sit for my CCIE R&S exam. I have studied the material in depth before, but needed something that would give me a concise overview and an easy to follow map to quickly find the content I need to review. The study guide material is put together very well and organized by exam topic, which is exactly what I needed. There are also links to documentation for further reading where necessary. The exam questions are also great to further your retention of the material. The study guide has been a valuable preparation resource.

Mark Bellville, Network Engineer
Hy-Vee

Very clear and concise content. I really appreciated the video content and how they understood that some of the material could be dry, so they tried to mix it up a bit by adding “fun facts” to the content. I would recommend and will be purchasing other material in the future.

Jeff Rapini, Sr. Solutions Architect
ePlus inc.

Study guide provides concise information for all areas of exam and provides a link to more details for each section. I would recommend to anyone that is ready to take the written but wants to review main points before taking.

Eric Schmitz

The study guide provides a nice breakdown of the blueprint with links to additional reference material which provides a good refresher. The study plans are a nice touch and help keep you on track when you have a busy schedule.

A very nice reference PDF for CCIE Security Studies. Hits all of the topics listed in the blueprint, and has become a helpful resource in my studies.

I stumbled on this site by accident a few months ago, and since then my study for CCIE Written for R&S has never been much easier. Of particular interest is the Evolving Technologies section. I am yet to come across any CCIE learning sites that have better content than those in this guide for the new Evolving Technologies. I would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to undertake the written exam.
