May — Third attempt in Brussels, I paid for this last few days of Version 4. Thanks for the response Roger. I also know a husband and wife who were both going for the CCIE and she passed first!
Certainly yes, I have learnt a lot and in more depth than if I had just passed the first time around. Enjoy your CCIE number! I failed again better with time management, passed TS and failed config.

Certifying your switchlng is part of the job. They might even be primary family caregivers along with working in networking. Inspiring indeed, you have really hit a nerve and I am going for it. Cisco will issue certificates only when both lab and written test are passed? The reason my journey took so long was purely that I did not put in the time required before I went to the exam, I also had some delays due to financial reasons.
Once you have all routingg in place you just need a plan and a timeline. I currently am studying for the v5, and posts like these are a kick in the rear for me to get back on the horse when distractions come into play. I just want to switchiing that if someone has passed written exam of ccie rout8ng and switching so can he get hard copy of certificate or he has to do lab test to get certificate. I am going to take a few weeks icsco study and then I need to pick up on some other vendor certs that I need to pickup mainly around F5, Riverbed and SDN I am also going to start learning Python.
April — First attempt in Brussels my previous employer paid for this I failed, was nowhere near ready and should not have even gone to the lab.
Like I want to push configuration to all devices and then retrieve configuration. Proctor went as far as to say, you can configure December — Second attempt, mobile lab in London I paid for this I failed, better technically but ran out of time in both TS and config.

What he means is that you have to do the work and you have to be on top of the technology, I chose to go to the lab before I was really ready, you should study and study really well and make one maybe two attempts. We really should work on being a little more inclusive, though: As the version had changed from V4 to V5 I took my time coming up to speed with all the new technologies that were in the lab, the main difference was DMVPN which was a ciso area for me. Would you in your current job role that your specific job gave you an advantage to passing your CCIE then before?
Definitely hard to fit in studying between work and family. At this point my understanding wife said enough is enough this is costing us too much money you have to stop now.

Your email address will not be published. The ideal method is a 6 month plan where you devote pretty much all of your spare time towards study and then take off two weeks before the exam to focus solely on lab exam practice. But what it really comes down to is you and the CLI — focus on the technology, no distractions, and you will get there.

When I say the method I chose — it was not a conscious decision but more of switchihg path that I ended up taking. I am will not be going for the CCIE because of other personal projects.
