CCIE™, CCNP™, CCNA™,
CCDP™ and CCDA™ candidates! You have reached the Internet's
premier study group for Network Engineering certifications.
We are a community of 30,000+ engineers studying various
topics related to network engineering and in particular,
the certifications in the industry. We have divided
into a number of GroupStudies,each
with a different focus and purpose.
We also have periodic online classes where a member may
elect to lead or moderate a smaller discussion about
an individual topic or subject. Topics can be a single
subject such as OSPF or a complete certification such
as the CCNA. As with all elements of this site,
the classes are FREE and lead by volunteers from one
of the GroupStudies.

Cisco CCIE Lab Toplogy Change
Cisco has changed the lap topology of the CCIE R&S to use
3560 switches intead of the end-of-lifed 3550's. Rumor has
it there will be four 3560's in the Lab!
Cisco CCIE Written waiting
May 13: Cisco has
announced a change to the CCIE written retake policy. A
five day waiting period has been instated when failing the
the same exam.
Candidates who pass a CCIE written
exam must wait a minimum of six months before taking the
number exam. Thus, CCIE recertification candidates
may no longer re-certify for four years by simply taking
twice in a row.
Higher Priority for TAC cases opened by CCIE's
March 2: Cisco will route cases opened by CCIE's to more experience
core team support, thus better matching the customer with
the TAC engineer.
Cisco releases two new CCIE exams
February 17: Cisco has
released two new exams for CCIE candidates - Metro Ethernet
and Storage Networking Certification.
Here comes IPv6
January 1: Starting January
1, 2005 Cisco will include IPv6 on the CCIE Routing and Switching
exam. GroupStudy members are discussing the necessary study
hardware and software upgrades needed to meet the new requirements.
Need hardware? Why not try the virtual pod system. By using the virtual pod system you can emulate Cisco
IOS hardware thus giving you an economical study tool. Go to VirtualPod.org for more information. It's Free!
We will be moving to a new co-location facility today.
Please excuse the downtime.
