Cisco CCIE Exams, How To's

By gordy17_9 ·
Hi,

I am in need of your help, I am intrested in doing the maximum Cisco certification the CCIE, but I'm at a loss as to which books I need to buy, as well as how to go about getting to do the exams, or what are the requirements to reach the CCIElevel. There is a lot of info on MCSE which is pretty easy to follow, is there somthing similar for the CCIE course?
Are the exams done at a centre or online?

Cisco CCIE Exams, How To's

by Some Guy in Seattle In reply to Cisco CCIE Exams, How To' ...

The exams are done onsite at cisco training centers, of which there are only a few worldwide (more details on the certification site of cisco - http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/625/ccie/certifications/routing.html (no spaces)). The exam consists ofa written test of approx. 250 questions and a practical exam lasting two days, not necessarily taken at the same time (unless you're a masochist :) ). The first day is spent building a network to cisco's specs given the equipment. The second day is spent fixing the network you built the day before after cisco's engineers go in and mess it up. The exam is not easy by any means and there is a high failure rate.

Cisco offers the CCNA and CCNP certifications as beginning and intermediate level certs on routing and switching but these are not a prerequisite for CCIE. As far as study materials, you can't go wrong with cisco press stuff. Look for the CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE logos on the spine. Some people complain that these books are too complex, particularly for CCNA and CCNP certs, but you will need to know the info anyway for CCIE anyway.

Hope that helps-
