November CCDE Achievers

I am very proud to announce that Daniel Lardeux, Johnny Britt and Mohammad Haddad passed the CCDE Practical exam yesterday and they joined the CCDE Club, which is one of the most respected IT certifications.

Their CCDE numbers will arrive in a couple of days.

See the existing Global List of the CCDEs, their companies and numbers here. If you are not in the list, have changed your company or want to be on the list, contact me.

Daniel and Mohammad joined my July class and Johnny used the CCDE Practical preparation bundle.

I would like to stress that four guys from my class or using my preparation resources attempted the November 2015 CCDE Practical exam and three of them passed! A 75% success rate is not a small thing for this certification.

They all glad that they have not only learned the CCDE-related topics but also the real life network design.

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!
