I am planning to take the written by the end of 2006, and the lab next year (probably more than once).

Who else is in?

    What is this CCIE you speak of.... and how can I get one?

    I guess it isn't official until you admit it..... but the "suspect list" is in this thread

    Okay. I'm in. If I get my CCIE Security this year, I can still play for the R&S next year, right?

    I saw the suspect list right after I had the idea for this thread, but I still wanted people to say so themselves :)

    What is this "if" you speak of? We all know you going for #2 next year :D

    Hopefully more than that, but win or lose this year.... I will confirm that I have no plan to do the CCIE Storage Networking next year.

    I put my pants on in the morning, just like every other CCIE Candidate -- one lab, er... leg, at a time. But I guess you could stand on a chair, hold the pants in front of you, and try to jump into them with both legs at the same time. But if you think about the most likely outcome of that.... then you reschedule one of the labs..... not that I will ever admit to having had 2 labs scheduled 1 day apart (hypothetically on a Monday and Wednesday) icon_lol.gif

    I wont see my NP until next summer most likely. I am trying to finish this coop workterm up with my CCNP half way done, then its back to school for me until April 2007, which then I will start the other half. I hope to get my CCIP after this to help me with the CCIE R/S. I have a long journey ahead of me, but I have the motivation, thats what sets most of us apart from others.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Darby - you are going to be a QoS beast by the time you are ready to sit for your next lab.

    Good luck guys...........i can't wait to retire lol


    First thought that comes to mind is xxxxxx.

    ? care to elaborate?


    Anyway If I can get a date Im going to take an initial run in April, I have worked through numerous books and 9 of the internetworkingexpert labs, alhtough worryingly Im improving on a lot of basic areas, but loosing more marks on the complex stuff, whereas 2 months ago I was taking the time on the complex sections but putting no time or thought into the base stuff. Now I just a balance I guess, and the Monitoring/NTP/Net Managment section I am weak on.

    Anyone going for the voice lab in 2007? I passed the Voice Written about a month ago and plan on sitting the lab for the first time in June.

    Darby has his home lab built up for it.... but he seems set on kicking some R&S butt first.

    I need to take care of business on my scheduled Security Lab this year & R&S lab early next year before I worry about any other CCIEs..... but I did price a 6500 a couple of weeks ago icon_eek.gif so I'd lean towards rack rental right now....

    Good luck with the security CCIE.

    I just stumbled on this forum. It seems like you guys are posting a lot of great info.

    Thanks! And welcome! I only get one shot at the Version 1 Security Exam, so I'll take all the luck I can get. Worst case, I call it a practice lab for my R&S attempt... and a recon for preparing for the Version 2 Security that starts next January.

    You can help out by posting your study plans for the Voice CCIE. With the Beta Voice Written Exams and the Voice software changing so fast, it sounds like a fun one to try and pin down! icon_lol.gif I do hope to do the Voice Written before they totally change it on me.... hopefully the 2nd Beta Voice will take Cisco as long to figure out as the 1st one did.

    I do have the home lab built up for SP.... so, hypothetically, that would be 3rd, and Voice would be a distant 4th.

    You are a god. You remind me of the Triple CCIE that teaches courses near me. Harith is 56 years old, has 3 CCIE's and is working on 4th CCIE Voice right now. He is brilliant.

    Damn, You boys have all inspired me so much bowing.gif

    I'm chucking my hat in as well, as it were. I'm gonna give CCIE a shot too. icon_eek.gif
    Damn you MrD - you started this icon_lol.gif

    I'm still deciding which track to take R&S or SP! I'm quite partial to the SP side of things, when I finish up on NP next year I will gonna go straight for it

    Best be hitting the books then icon_study.gificon_study.gif

    New guy here who just found this forum. First post as I have been trying to find materials, lab stuff, study forums, study buddies, yadda yadda yadda, to help me pass this humdinger of a cert. I passed my CCNP this past spring and work for a service provider currently so I am planning on sitting the serivce provder track written test some time in mid to late 2007.

    On a side note I am looking for study partners in the Raleigh NC area. I have not really started studying yet but am starting this week by re-reviewing my CCNP routing book and maybe do a few labs.

    You could always do the R&S first and call it practice!

    I'll go out on a limb here and show you guys some serious planning. I'm planning on doing CCNA before the end of the year. Reach NP by the end of 07. Then brace for sitting an IE written towards the end of 08 and nail a lab midway or towards the end of 09. I either own or have full-time access to every piece of equipment I'll need, so everybody get's to hear about the chronicles of someone going from CCNA all the way through icon_eek.gif . I'll be starting to spend more time with my Cisco guys over the next couple of years.
