  1. If anyone wants to undergo CCIE expert level training they can go for CCIE DC, CCIE Security, CCIE – R&S, CCIE SP, CCIE Collaboration. CCIE Collaboration is one of the most sought after courses.

  2. I’m sorry but I’m going to disagree. I paid close to $350 for a cmltoepe set of Microsoft Office 2007 training CDs from K Alliance and I am not impressed. I thought it would be a great way for me to learn and it had potential but I can’t simply watch someone perform an action and retain it. I needed the opportunity to also perform similar actions to review and retain what I was supposed to be learning. I read that the CDs came with Hands-on labs and I contacted the company to specifically ask this same question, to see if it would be enough for my needs. They assured me that they had very good labs with their lessons. These labs are so simplified that they are a joke! Furthermore, if the manufacture had simply provided their CDs with copies of the examples they used for lessons, there were things I could have quickly learned just by imitating some of the on-screen lessons. Instead, I had to either watch or waste valuable time trying to creating a similar document to practice with. Additionally, I really wanted to beef up my Excel skills. My package has levels from beginner to intermediate. However, despite going through the whole package, I don’t feel much more advanced than a beginner. WHERE are the CDs which show me how to create and use various formulas? This is skimmed over, as is macros and pivot tables, etc. For all this money, couldn’t they have provided some real hands-on labs, copies of the documents the teachers were working with and, what would have truly sealed the deal for me, a workbook to practice with?When I bought my Microsoft Office 2007 software I also bought a training program with it called Total Training Getting Up to Speed. This package was under $100 and I didn’t think this would have enough information which is why I also purchased the K Alliance software. Now, having shelled out the money for both companies products, I can honestly say that I feel the Total Training software packs a much, much greater value for the money. Hands down. If I were to do it all over again, I would only buy the Total Training Getting Started product because it gives almost the same information for less than $100 than the K Alliance one does for almost $350.

    1. Hello Prashant,

      I think Cisco Phones are more widespread than the ASAs. Because of that Voice is very important. Don´t forget the Security track has the ASAs (very popular) but also IDS/IPS and (i think VPN aplliances) that are not that used, at least here in Portugal.

      I also have

  5. Hi,
    I have done CCNA and CCNP V6.Now I am looking for doing CCIE, but I do not have any practical Cisco experience, please someone tell me if its possible to pass CCIE without any prior experience.

  9. I don’t think the CCIE is the “highest level of technical networking certification offered by Cisco.” ever since they came out with the CCDE.
