CCIE Voice Written Exam 350-030 Expanded Blueprint

I am getting ready to start my CCIE Voice Written (Exam 350-030) preparation and hoping to gain a ton of knowledge throughout this journey. I was hoping to purchase the CCBootcamp Voice Written guide but they displayed the WORST POSSIBLE customer service so I have decided to only rely on Cisco Documentation for my CCIE Voice Written prep.

To start off, here is the expanded blueprint for CCIE Voice Written customized to my needs. I will be following this blueprint while updating my notes throughout the journey.  My goal is to attempt the CCIE Voice Written exam by August 2009. I know that is an aggressive timeline but I have no other choice due to the load at work.

    I’m starting the IE Voice myself, aiming for taking it in Sept. Best of luck to us both.

  2. CCIETalk says:

    Welcome to the blog! Are you aiming for the written or have you already passed it? I would like to know about your plans.

    • ErikP says:

      Aiming for written. I’d like to pass the current written blueprint so I can focus on new lab blueprint. I have the ccbootcamp written guide, and my Cisco Press collection.

  3. CCIETalk says:
