How realistic is it to try and study and pass the CCENT exam in 5-10 day. I have very little background in networking and just some basic knowledge. Do i even have a chance to pass or will this require much more time.

not very realistic if you've never done networking before. you need to be able to master subnetting, understand routing principles, and know the command line. not having ever touched cisco IOS will probably hurt you. give yourself at least 2-3mns.
think of certifying things as building a soild foundation. they didn't build the pyramids in a week. getting your certs should be no different.

Example - I worked with a CCNA who couldn't explain to me how a linksys router worked, claimed since it wasn't Cisco he shouldn't have to know... After I/other co-workers cleaned up several of his messes when he couldn't get subnetting, DHCP scopes, exclusions, HA setup, basically he was worthless. Kind of like those advertisments for Bing! "search overload" - a bunch of crap you don't want. He was let go within a few weeks
Cisco Networking isn't just a job, it's a Lifestyle.
