Congrats on the pass lid! Definitely a major accomplishment.....
Anyone have tips on finding an effective study group? I've done self studies for all my certifications to date, but the amount of information on those was far less than the CCIE. Been working on my CCIE Security (off and on) for the last 13 months or so. I think I read someone in this particular post mention taking time off. One of my time spans was almost 3 months. Even for just fundamental knowledge, it took a toll. My written is next week, but I still plan to target the lab towards the latter part of 2016/early 2017.

I started with volume 2 of the OCG, and am nearing the end of it. I think I will re-lab everything once complete before starting volume 1, and then I'll end up repeating the same process and moving on to the TCP/IP books. I refuse to make a thread, because I still can't believe I'm actually doing this. It's very real at this point though.
I struggled with multicast chapters. Not because I do not understand it, but because I am unsure of how to really lab it. I need to make multicast traffic, and I need a client to want it. Just not sure how to do that right now. Using real gear if it matters.

Anyone ever just go for CCIE and skip the exams (CCNA/CCNP)? I am not saying skip the studies at that level but don't worry about the exams.
