Narbik Kocharians's Advanced CCIE Routing & Switching 2.0 Workbooks Update #2

I just woke up, my iPhone beeped telling me of e-mails from GS and one particular mail caught my attention and here's the mail.

From Narbik Kocharians's own words in Group Study,

*Advanced CCIE R&S Work Book* - Version 1.0 is the OLD "Advanced CCIE R&S Work Book" and its been sold for $150. There will be no updates to this work book.

*Soup-To-Nuts*, this work book was what the students used to get when they signed up for a boot camp. Basically it prepared the students for the BOOT CAMP and NOT the lab. This work book is being sold for $35.

*Foundation 2.0* - This work book replaced the old soup-to-nuts, and when you register for a boot camp, you will get an E-copy of this work book, its designed to prepare you for the boot camp ONLY. Its being sold for $100.

*Advanced CCIE R&S Work Book 2.0* - This work book covers everything in the currect version of CCIE R&S + version 4, which is the new version of the test that will be enforced starting Oct 18th. This work book will be sold for $350, and covers things like LDP/MPLS L3VPNs, an updated section of IPv6 to include Eigrp, OER, and many more. This work book is almost finished and should be ready for purchase starting Monday 24th.

*Boot Camp 2.0* - A work book that will be ready by Oct, this work book can NOT be purchased, you can ONLY get this work Book if you attend a boot camp, it contains some serious labs on all the items and i mean on ALL items in the blue print.

*The SP work book* - This work book is finished but i need to go through it one more time to see and fix the typos and add more explanation. Real quality work book, probably the BEST one for SP.

*The Class On Demand series* - The OSPF Filtering is already added and you can download the FREE sample from the website and the complete version of this product can be purchased for $50, i will be adding more CoDs to the list, my goal is to have a complete selection of R&S, SP, Voice and Security. We will be adding things like CCNA, CCNP, CCSP, CCIP, CCVP stuff there as well.

I hope i answered all questions. Once again i am very sensitive to people's money, i WILL NOT PUSH THE PRICES HIGHER, but the quality will be the BEST I CAN PRIVIDE, as far as content, it will be the most complete CoD.

That's a huge update if you ask me :-). Narbik now is finally going to offer a whole range of CoDs and also his updated 2.0 workbooks. With his outstanding bootcamp, I'll say things are going to get pretty interesting in the CCIE world.

Which country are you from?

nwachonky said...

i am from nigeria and live in lagos

AFAIK, Narbik had some Nigerian students before and the best way to beat around the "no paypal in Nigeria" situation is to do wire transfer. What I can strongly suggest you to do is to e-mail and tell them of your situation. They will be able to help you and you will have Narbik's workbooks pretty soon.

Today is August 24th and still the Advanced Workbook 2.0 is not available for Purchase at the price listed in the blog post.

Please let us know if there is any further delay to the release of the workbook.


Nickelby said...

To be honest, Narbik has set the date to officially launch his work books.

However that being said, we need to keep in mind that he is a one-man army trying to release every single bit of his work in its full glory.

I would expect an announcement from him soon and I will update it here the moment I get it.

Like you guys, I am also waiting patiently for the best of the best to appear. But one thing is assured. This is NOT vapourware. I am putting my reputation on the line so I don't make up stuff like these :-).

Hi Guys,
I am as well waiting patiently now, just wondering if anyone know is "Advanced CCIE R&S 2.0" going to contain "Advanced Troubleshooting 2.0" section as Narbik mentioned somewhere on his post earlier?


Nickelby said...

Yes it will contain the troubleshooting workbook as well.
