any investment now is worth it if you pass the CCIE.
I have about 9 years of experience, with switching and routing. However I have never gone after any of the other Cisco certs. If you don't mind I have just a few questions.
1. What path did follow? Did you get other certs and work up to the CCIE or did you just go for the CCIE
2. Would you suggest renting a lab or buying one.
3. What tips do you have for the lab test?
4. How much time did you allow youself between the written test and the lab test
Again thank you for you time and response.
