A little about this page.
In the future I hope to have some usefull information reguarding study
material for the CCIE and other Cisco certification tests. I have also
written a few "learning exercises". These are written to encourage you
to read and learn before answering the question. These are not meant to
be practice tests for the CCIE.
A little about taking the CCIE test.
Taking the CCIE written test will require you know not only Cisco
specific commands and features, but know networking and protocols very
Taking the CCIE lab exam will require a great deal of
familliarity with the IOS interface, and indepth work with all of the
protocols and features supported by Cisco. You will possibly need to
know how to use switches, and ATM devices. Time and being nervous will
kill your chances during the lab exam. All of the Cisco documentation
and many Cisco Press books are available to you when you take the lab
exam, but if you need to lookup more than 2-3 things you probably won't
have enough time to finish the test. You should be very familliar with
the Cisco documentation CD, and how to find things quickly. You
will need to look something up.
Until I get more info here, take a look at this.
CCIE info at Cisco
I have recertified twice since I got my CCIE. I took the IP routing test
the first time in 2000 and the Optical test in 2002.
