  Georg,

     The link that Mr. Dennis provided you with (for IPexpert) is V5.  V6 consisted of diagram and technical updates - and config fixes.  We also developed a complimentary product called the "Proctor Guide" that was designed to provide our customers with instructoral and proctoral guidance while completing our scenarios.  The link for this complimentary product is: https://www.ipexpert.com/downloads/PG-Sample-1.zip.  It's quite a different approach than our competition went with - we don't offer "hand holding" for the entire workbook - we provide you with technical guidance and hints similar to what the real proctor will give you during the lab.  If you want hand-holding - we're not the vendor that will fit your style.  We have ran a special for the past 2 months where the Proctor Guide is free when someone purchases a 6.0 WB - and we'll probably be extending it for 2 more weeks due to the incredible response.  As Mr. Dennis states, be sure you do your homework when selecting a
product.  Success stories and testimonials are important, but make sure that the product fits your learning and preparation style.  Also, be sure you check out the additional services that all vendors provide such as online support, product updates and product enhancements.  Check out the product contents thoroughly - check out the design of the material, the number of scenarios and check to see if there is a structured learning approach that will assist you from beginning to end of your lab prep.  Some of the vendors out there have a product that was released in August or October 2003, while others are kept current.  Some vendors have a product that contain full 1-day mock labs - some vendors have a combination of both.  If you have any additoinal questions, please feel free to email me directly at wayne@xxxxxxxxxxxxx  If you really want to add to another thread on this list - feel free to join Kazaa and download all of the workbooks free of charge - Mr. Dennis thinks this is funny,
so I'm sure he won't be offended! ;-)

Thanks - Wayne
