Need not to mention....I too have 1 year old son....very naughty....When
ever I open my laptop to study, he will come and start playing with
Laptop keys. I usually study and practive for 3-4 hrs everyday
(10:PM-2:AM) but out of that ateast 1 hour is sucked up by my son :-(

But, I would admit that he is also an inspiration to me to pursue my
CCIE....and that's what I am doing. My wife helps me a lot...I hope one
day I will also pass this exam which is my ultimate dream.

Hello group,

I still don't believe it !!! I arrived from Brussels 2 hours ago the
e-mail was already there !!!

Special thanks to:

- Mr. Bruce Caslow who showed me how important it was to join a study
group and fortunatley i found Group Study.
- Mike Kraus for being my study partner these last weeks.
- Erik Vangrunderbeek for clarifying everything i asked him during the

I started this long journey in early 2006. Then i failed my 1st attempt
in September 2006. Then due to the lab blueprint change in November
2006, i decided to start all over again. Joined this fantastic group in
December 2006. Made again the 350-001 in March 2007. Finally i was
successful after
18 months of hard work and sacrifices. It's not easy when you have a
wife and a 4 years old kid.

I have 10 years of experience and made my CCNP in 2002 and CCIP in 2005.

I used Internetwork Expert and NetMasterClass products.

I will be here to help others achieving their goal !!!

Thank you,
Antonio Soares
