Hi,

I was reading a thread `how hard to become a CCIE` and notice you mentioned
the following

If you understand (and I mean REALLY" understand) all of Jeff Doyle's
book (both volumes) and Kenedy/Clark's book, then you're in good shape.

Now having both CCNP and CCDP with most of the salse crap and other
specializations in voice mainly, not to mention the experience aswell are
you saying I could attempt the CCIE written and potentially pass with these
three books? This is not to say I am looking for the easy way in just I
really didnt fancy reading 20+ books before attempting it. Whilst I have
read several books and use the experience at work I dont want to prolong any
further. To date I have not sat it in fear of not knowing if I know enough.
Confidence lacking I think. I have read so many threads saying how hard it
is, and everyone is suggesting books so I will go buy it and read it to be
prepared. Actually I think I now own cisco press.

Anyway I have read the 3 books and I do understand them so the question is,
whilst probably impossible for you to answer. Will I be prepared for any
question given?

Many Thanks
Tony

I really don't think that "you're in good shape" means that you're actually
ready to take the exam. In fact, Hansang has posted his recommended reading
list in the past... hmmm... I think it's here somewhere... aha!

*******************************************************************
1. Jeff Doyle: Routing TCP/IP (both volumes).
2. Tanenbaum: Computer Networks.
3. Caslow: Cisco Certifications (bridges, routers and switches)
4. Donald Lee: Enhanced IP Services
5. Nam-Tan Kee: Configuring Cisco Routers for Bridging DLSw+
and Desktop Protocols
6. Slattery/Burton: Advanced IP Routing in Cisco Networks
7. Rudenko: Cisco Routers for IP Routing
8. Clark/Hamilton: Cisco LAN Switching
9. Perlman: Interconnections, Second Edition, Bridges/Routers/Switches
10. Willamson: Developing IP Multicast Networks: Definitive Guide...
11. Comer: Internetworking with TCP/IP.
12. Halabi: Internet Routing Architecture

to start...and no, I'm not joking.
***********************************************************

So again, it looks like the answer to your question is no.

For the written? Absolutely. For the lab? You have to read a few more
books. Like Halabi, Caslow etc. And of course, lots of experience!

Thanks Hansang. Fortunately I have read several books including the ones
mentioned. The only reason I asked is so I can some what reassure myself I
am ready as oppossed to finding excuses not to do it as not being ready etc.
I have now continued to book the exam for 4 weeks time and hopefully will
have good news.

Many Thanks

Oh just to let you know this is not a paper certificate and have been in the
industry for the last 7 years from level 1 to design currently, and have no
plans to discrace the credibility of the cert. LMAO which is probably why I
fear it so much because I respect it so much.

You're on the right track. The '4 weeks time" is for the written or the
lab?

Cor blimey- 4 weeks for the lab...By now I would be s***ing
myself...fortunately it is the written. Have read most of the books and
worked on most of the kit, lol, but still dont feel confident. Still I guess
I will find out in a few weeks huh. Do I really know what I think I know or
am I still stupid? hmmm one would hope the first. Anyway lots more reading
and time and a good set of questions with about 95% luck and I guess I could
be a tenth of the way there.
