HTH is "hope this helps".
Without going into too much opinion-related stuff here, I think you'll find
the differences between MCSE (which 'E' is Engineer, by the way) and CCIE
(where 'E' really is Expert) to be significant.
Take a look at some practice labs, and perhaps the Cisco Press books by Karl
Solie or Maurillio Gorito would be a good starting point.
At least these would begin to give you some perspective on the rash of
differences between the two certifications. I think you'll find that life
does exist beyond the /24 boundary, and you should be able to embrace those

Subject: Another New One
I just complete my MCSE+I and now I have need for CCIE. I have joined group
because I must have CCIE in 30 days, maybe I can wait for 45 days, but no
longer. I want to finish before May starts, for I have futbol league to play
in then. If I get the CCIE in 30 days, then maybe I try for a second in the
next 15 days. I need to get CCIE so I can make a bigger money. I hear this
is a good group for to join.
The MCSE have many more tests so I think CCIE may not be as difficult as I
hear. One day I pass two exams, one right after another for the MCSE. This
is also "Expert" level certification, just like CCIE. Some people may not
know this, but a Windows server can be setup like a router. I have done this
many times. I have very high IQ and can study sometimes 2 - 4 hours without
I see a question about a subnet mask. Is it necessary to know the subnets
other than a 255.255.255.0? I have set these networks up many times, and am
almost an expert with them. One time there were 4 of these networks all
working through a windows box, and I did this in less than 2 hours, and this
include time it take to reboot servers.
I have bought a router on ebay for to help study with. I want to use web
browser for to configure this router, but I cannot seem to get it to come
I use the telnet program (From a Windows Server :) to log into this router
but all there is a command line. It look almost like an old DOS program. I
hope Cisco does not still emulate DOS when Windows has been around many
years. This could a big mistake for them.
If anyone need help on setting routers, let me know. I will be willing to
help. Also, it seems Cisco allow test taker to look at website during CCIE
exam. In the MCSE program there is no help available. You must not look at
any material while taking exam. I think it should be fun to have a book open
Do you think I should get a Voice CCIE, or a Security CCIE for the second
CCIE I get. I am not familiar with the differences between them? I did
recently set up Security for Microsoft Vista, so maybe Security should be
the way to go.
Also I want to say to Darby. You seem like a nice man (i hope you are man,
not woman. if so i apologize). You should try for to relax a little more and
take care of your health. If you can't get CCIE this week, you will be able
to get it next week. I know sometimes you get in a hurry, but your health is
more important than passing exam this week. Just make up study on the
weekend and take exam the following week. You should trust yourself more and
not spend so much money on instructions. Do you have relationship with your
instructor? You seem very close.
One more question. What does HTH mean?
