I am very glad today to declare I have finally passed my CCIE Certification after a long journey of continuous efforts
The CCIE means and brings a kind of self satisfaction to me, and in fact, it kept me waiting before achieving it just to look for the second career path quite enough.
I share my success today with the people who used to answer and solve the Posters enquiries and resolve it, the people who share their knowledge and expertise, with the Cisco Employees, Hall of Fame people, Cisco Designated VIPs, and with all of the Community members. The Cisco Support Community and the Cisco Learning Network are great tools to help candidates and raise their knowledge.
I now have to decide what is my next certification path will be, Service provider, Security, Or CCDE. As I have gained some of experience on all of these tracks. I need to do proper self evaluation on the subjects and would therefore decide.
I would like to share some of the recommended books that I have used through my study for CCIE:
1- 1- CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide.
2- 2- Internet Routing Architecture Volume 1 and 2.
3- 3- MPLS Fundamentals.
4- 4- Routing TCP/IP volume 1 and 2.
Thank you all and I wish all of you the best.

Any valuable advice plz..!!
Thank you all,
Yes, for my lab I have primarily started with INE workbooks and then I also did the Cisco360 Program practise workbooks. It was covering huge and a lot of number of different scenarios and technologies. So for Lab preparation, I would recommend focusing on one product , but also navigate and practise different products as possibly can. this will give you an idea about differenct lab scenarios and solutions.
As for the LAB topics (Questions), I am afraid I can not disclose specific questions and answers as this violate the NDA, but I can tell you that the LAB simly covers every thing. Most of the Blue brint listed topics are covered in the exam. you may find different questions on different areas. You may also find questions in the troublshooting section not listed or covered in the Scenario and vice versa.
So, I would recommend well preparation and do a checklist according to the blue print topics one by one. while on the same time spend determined time for practising LABS.
for the other question, there are no pre-requisite for the CCIE Certification, however, if you are a bigginer, I would higly advice going through the CCNA, CCNP up to the CCIE. this will solidfy your knowledge and provide you with basic and strong foundation for the CCIE certification.
If you feel the CCNP curriculum is some thing you already mastered and familiar with, then you can do it. but it needs some dedication and time spending and efforts throught the way to your certification. Nothing is immpossible, every can be done with proper dedication and planning.
I hope all of you the best.
Assalaamualaikum Mohamed Sobair,
