    Surely you should have gone via the CCNP route before going down the CCIE route?

    I am not saying that it's a pre-requisite, just that ideally you would have gained the knowledge and experience that the CCIE requires by already being a CCNP and using that in a day to day basis.

    Out of interest what's your level of experience with the Cisco range of products, how long have you been supporting\installing\troubleshooting the products?

    Or were you just braindumping? Because as a CCIE candidate you 'should' really know what you can and can't do with the CCNA\NP\DA\DP\SP etc.

    Of course. The CCNP doesn't depend on passing the CCIE.

    That said, I wouldn't recommend that you attempt the CCNP unless you've got a fair bit of experience administering Cisco devices in a real-world environment.

    I would say that depends where you live, for example I am betting that in India it's not that expensive.

    Ah I see, I didn't think it worked like that. Looks like this testing center is keeping up standards if this fella has failed. Whilst he's been able to take the lab exam, I've never heard of anyone going for the CCIE who isn't a CCNP :S

    Don't you have to do the ccie written exam before you're allowed to attempt the lab?

    BTW - I'm pretty sure the lab exam costs the same wherever you take it. I think its about 1500 bucks

    well - I was actually going to go down the same route.... I even started CCIE study, got about 3 weeks into it then got busy and it went on hold

    reason for this was at the time there didn't seem to be adequate training for the new CCNP track and I wanted to crack on..... now of course, there is some great training stuff for CCNP and that's the route I'm taking

    does seem a bit crackers to attempt the lab without going CCNP first though.... I mean if he'd prepared enough to do the CCIE written (which you have to do and pass before lab) it would've taken a fair ammount of time and the old CNNP stuff had loads of training resources....doesn't seem to be any real legit reason.

    but I've read of people doing the same simply because they're already at the level of experience to tackle the CCIE.....if you're ready, no point doing 3 extra exams to get there.....
