Re: Full CCIE education value question
If you're already 4 years in the world of networking, I would think
that $500 in books and sample questions, combined with about 500-1500
hrs of study, you could get your CCIE in a much shorter time.

Plus, once you have your CCNA, you should be able to command at least
$50K/yr, and a lot more with your CCNP, which depending on how quickly
you get your CCNA, could be within just a few months.

Best wishes,
