CCIE Command Memorizer

First things first, for those of you who remembered Mike Down, he is now back at . The man's back. Period. Welcome back Mikey! :-)

I recently purchased the CCIE Command Memorizer from and also subscribed to their top notch newsletter. Now what made me purchase this e-book? It was down to a few reasons. For the screenshots and description of the product, I suggest you visit and check them out. Caue's blog has also screenshots (not to forget Richard Bannister's blog as well).

1. It is rather a unique tool that actually helps you (or rather forces you ;-)) to remember commands which you will likely use in your CCIE lab (that's the point of the product name). For example, it will give you are scenario e.g. configure eigrp using AS 1 so you will need to then type "router eigrp 1". WRONG! In fact, the CCIE Command Memorizer takes the full approach by putting you in the enable prompt and waits patiently for you to put in "configure terminal" before adding "router eigrp 1". Now this is good as it mirrors the exact config style of the IOS. So in case you didn't notice, it is a simulator.

2. The price and the freebies. Ok you get the e-book with free updates for a year. Granted they do tell you you get another free e-book (Cool IOS Commands) and a free newsletter (really top notch) but these are available even if you don't get the CCIE Command Memorizer e-book. The point is at USD $99.99, you get a good CCIE product. As all of us CCIE candidates know, USD $99.99 is kinda cheap for a CCIE product.

3. Last but not least, it has been tested and used extensively by a few excellent CCIE candidates. The product has also contributions from Richard Bannister, a cool guy so that speaks for itself. Caue has been using it and I believe a few others are using it as well.

As of now, I am happily memorizing a few commands from the first few chapters of the CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide 3rd Edition and testing them on this new tool.
