I originally started my blog as a place to keep my CCIEW study notes. Since then I started blogging about the things I am learning in wifi space (though it is not related to CCIEW exam). Since I passed my CCIEW lab exam in Aug 2013, I have done lots of posts mainly focusing CWNP certifications. So if you are new to my blog it is very hard to find all blog posts related to CCIEW exam in a logical order.

CCIE-Wireless-LogoSo in this post I will list down all the related posts I have written related to CCIEW exam (I could not believe, there are 160+ posts 😯 ). I tried to map my post to the CCIEW_Lab_v2_Blueprint,  so you can  follow them easily. I used section 0 to any post related to planning/preparation work for lab exam. Note that all posts done using the software version specified in CCIEWv2.0 blueprint (WLC, ACS5.2)
