Hi All,

Need your advise on where do i start my CCIE preparation from? Right now i have my CCNP which was taken 2 years back and i have working in the Networking field for the last 6 years working on BGP, OSPF, EIGRP and lot of other products like firewalls, VPN, cache engines and also Monitoring systems like HPOV, SOlarwinds and stuff.

Now as my CCNP is going to expire i taught of getting my CCIE, atleast give it a try. So where do i start from? Should i re-do my CCNP training and then do my CCIE written?

So can i just start on the CCIE self paced training from any of the 2 websites?

http://www.ine.com
http://www.ipexpert.com/

THe reason i choose the paid sites is because if i dont pay i would not study. I have to lose something to gain something back :P And also the ipexpert website provides a very organized way of learning things.

Thanks
Hari

Written paper is never an issue, isn't it? have seen people working as a Helpdesk Executive  with written cleared. Braindumps/bootcamps/Jeff Doyle,  so many options to pass the written. It's officially very hard if you want to read, understand and then pass. :)

Real concern is the lab. You should be purchasing second hand network gears from ebay or locally and set up lab at home to practice. Else it will be real difficult to clear the lab exam.

Lab requires knowledge and no nuggets/bootcamps/braindumps can prepare you for that. If you pass the written with understanding instead of short cut braindumps it will help you a lot in the lab.

I never preferred any site for learning, ahead of books. Learn first and then use the sites to enrich yourself. Join any instructor led course/online programe after you finish up the books.

Best,

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your message, really appreciate it.
And yeah, i have just picked up some books from the library. TCP/IP Routing one. I am planning to read up the basic books first and get a strong hold on the basics before i dive into the LAB.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
