But this would require to change the testing center rules. It would require that companys who run a testing center are not allowed to let their own employees take the exam at their own centers. I have seen to mutch people cheating in their own testing centers... funny that for example most of the time when the video cam had problems recording the exam location an employee was taking a test...
Don't let the CCIE level come down to a paper title!...



Just my opinion...

And....if they can do this on-line, then maybe they should think about
doing the real exam on-line and save everyone the travel, expenses,
scheduling, etc.

Hey - it is only $279 (Introductory Price) to Beta Test a 4 hour mock
lab
from Cisco!

What an absolute joke. Thanks for nothing Cisco.

I shudder to think about how many of these they will sell.

If only more people knew about InternetworkExpert.

one of


the most challenging parts of the lab for me.  Somewhere around 2PM is
where
I found careless errors start to creep in.

I did take several CheckITs before my actual lab. The scoring nailed
exactly where I was at the time and the feeback was extremely helpful.
Putting myself through the full 8 hour experience prior to the real


lab


gave
me a good idea of how prepared I was and where I needed to keep
working. If
you're interested in seeing where you stack up before you take the


real


thing I'd highly recommend a CheckIT.
