I've been an assistant net admin for the last 6 years. I'd like to expand my knowledge, highten my job security and, yes, increase my marketability. The shop that I work in has Cisco products(Catalyst 5509 and a PIX Firewall), but we outsource all of our support. They have no interest in paying for my Cisco training. Is it possible to attain CCIE through self study and practice alone? Has anyone here done that? If so, can you give a poor guy like me some tips? I'd appreciate any info.. Thanks.
