Reviews and Testimonials

cciein8weeks reviews review legit

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.

Kendal Gabel

The best material available today for CCIE Written preparation!

Ronaldo Cesar, Analista de Redes
TECHNET-WIFI TELECOM

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.

I am an CCIE R&S. This product really helps me re-certify my license. The product has very realistic problems with links to useful documents. It lists a lot of problems that cover all necessary topics. In short, studying these materials really make me study and well prepare me for the test!

Beomsu Kim, CCIE #16814

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.

Kenny Keefover

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 well put together, and thought out, Move along a good pace, and explains exactly what you need to know. Great refresher for those that have already passed, but are looking to pass again for re-cert. I would recommend this guide!

Excellent for people who don’t want to read the whole book and also quizzes are very useful to practice.

Christian Guzman, CO-Founder/COO
One Consulting S.A.S

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.

Austin Okpaleke, Network Engineer
Vodafone

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

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).

Dionne Danvers, Consulting Engineer Unified Communications & Collaboration

Great Study Guides!

Jose Venegas, Computer Engineer Integrator

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!
