Purchase was finalized this morning and all R&S lab materials are in my INE account!!
350-001 is in a couple weeks and then its on!!
Good luck! What's your plan of attack?
Next two weeks is focused on the Written. After that I have to get my lab into shape. This will also be when i do a week by week breakdown.
Im going to follow the blog post published a while back on how to work through the work books. For schedule, Im dedicating 4 hours at night at least 3 days (aim for 4) during the work week. Weekends and the one weekday are family time. Sunday evening after the kids go down will hopefully be another 4 hours. Im extending betime here on out from 10pm to midnight.
Im also off every other friday so im dedicating another 4 hours if not more.
Im aiming for first quarter of 2014 as my first attempt and will hopefully get funding approved for a bootcamp by EOY 13.
Good luck with your studies!
Good luck and don't stop for anything! It's well worth it in the end
My best advice on going for any CCIE... keep a positive attitude and don't listen to the negative people!
sounds like you are in a similar place to me. I got all the materials I need for moment. I am building my lab up. Are you gettign 2x3560's ?
I am aimming for my written in march but I havent looked at bootcamps yet. Its something I want to try and get too. Being in the UK, I know for sure that my boss will send me to the USA ones. Something to do with miles and having "spare" dollars about.
I find at the moment I am reading a chapter, watching the written video, then the atc video. after that I try and make a lab.
Don’t have to purchase.
Free materials are on our side, as well.

Sorry for missing your reply David,
I think if I would have had the AT videos in my last months of study I would have faired better on the Written. The Written videos didnt go in depth enough for me.
If I can ever get the money to get a couple 3560s I will but for now I have 4x3550 and a crap-ton of rack rental tokens.
Also here is my post with my plan of attack if you (or anyone) are interested.
Build pretty much word for word from here
