Correct, Cisco will only issue certificates when both the written and lab exams are passed. As the version had changed from V4 swtching 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 new area for me.

Getting your study time in will affect them. I just want to know 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.

Thanks for the response Roger. There are actually women studying for the CCIE. Certifying your skills is part of the job. I was very close to passing my Lab yesterday and even though I knew I had enough time, got stuck in one section in the Config that had me bogged down and loose substantial amount of time — which sapped away my validation times and that surely got me in the end.


Curious if the study process or method changed since But what it really comes down to is you and the CLI — focus on the technology, no distractions, and you will get there. Like I want to push configuration to all devices and then retrieve configuration.

Studying for this exam is going to take a lot of your time switchhing be prepared to put aside your social life for a good few months and dedicate your evenings and weekends to the command line. We really should work on being a little more inclusive, though: 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.

Does this plan is too short to take the lab? Would I do things differently for the next one? Inspiring indeed, you have really hit a nerve and I am going for it.

This is a story of persistence and no quit. Rouhing 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.

April — First attempt in Brussels my previous employer anr for this I failed, was nowhere near ready and should not have even gone to the lab.
