    Check out the Cisco website for info on this:

    I think they have a few press releases there that talk about it.

    You can find the exact statistics, per country, here:

    I read somehwere, some time ago though, that 80% does not pass at their first attempt of the lab exam.

    thanks guys!

    damn 80%! that must be some tough lab. They require 5 years experience just to take the exam.

    Actually they don't require five years experience to take the lab. Cisco strongly encourages you to have 3 to 5 years experience, but don't require it.

    Cisco's view seems to be that "hey, it's your money." The lab portion is something like $1200+ to take it. The written is $350, I believe.

    There are actually multiple labs..

    Routing and Switching
    Security
    Service Provider
    Voice
    Storage area networks

    All of them are hard. Some people take them and never pass. One guy I work with, got his on the 4th try...another guy I work with took it for the 6th time, last week, and still did not make it.

    And others are correct...there is no "requirement" on time. I know of one person that got their IE with under 1 year experience...so, it can be done.
