January 2016 Online CCDE Bootcamp

I have just decided to schedule my next online class for the February 2016 CCDE Practical exam preparation because of three reasons. One is the high level of demand for my early CCDE bootcamps; the other is the overwhelming number of students pursuing the CCDE; the last is the high numbers of students who passed the exam from my class.

Click here for an overview of the students who have passed the latest (October 2015 ) CCDE Practical exam.

This class will not only include an overview of the technology concepts needed to pass the exam but also include several mini and full design scenario that mimic the structure of the CCDE lab exam.

Russ White – Orhan Ergun CCDE Practical Exam Scenario

I am glad to announce that Russ White and I have been preparing a CCDE Practical Exam ( Lab Exam ) Scenario. This is the most realistic scenario available anywhere. Why? Because it is not only prepared by a CCDE but also by one of the exam founders!

Disclosure : This is not asked in the CCDE exam , but the structure and idea is very similar to what would be found in the exam.

Russ White is one of the CCDE exam founders and the Author of Optimal Routing Design, Practical BGP, Advanced IP Network Design, and many other network design and architecture books. Russ and I have put much effort into preparing this scenario.

I will first present this scenario for the first time in the July CCDE Training class. (You can see from here the topics which I will talk about in the class as well.)

There are already more than 20 people in the class and multiple people will attend the CCDE Exam in August. I am sure this scenario will be an excellent resource for the CCDE candidates.

If you want to be a good network designer as well as a CCDE, it is not enough to understand the technologies alone, but you also need to understand how business intersects with those technologies.

You need to understand how business drives the network, and how the network can drive the business.

How can you analyse the network ? How can you prepare an architecture ? What are the attributes of good design? What are the most important tradeoffs? All of this will be discussed and more!

This is the ONLY CCDE Design class offered online. Travel and time away from home is null thus saving you not only time but money!

This class will not only help CCDE students pass their practical exam, but also aid CCIE candidates fill in knowledge gaps and further their understand of technical concepts and theory.

This is to allow the student to digest the information as well as work through the topics presented.
This approach not only aids in your retention of the information presented, but is also HIGHLY cost effective since ancillary training costs (travel and lodging) are nil.
Students may also take future CCDE offerings free of charge until they pass their CCDE.
