CCIE Wireless Study/Learn Preparation Materials
The materials listed below can be helpful in preparing for exams. The list is only suggested, however, and other books or resources may also cover the same topics.
Lab Exam Blueprint
Please review the Lab Exam Overview for general information about the CCIE Wireless Lab Exam. The blueprint is a detailed outline of the topics likely to appear on the lab exam. Knowledge of troubleshooting is an important skill and candidates are expected to diagnose and solve issues as part of the CCIE lab exam. The topics listed are guidelines and other relevant or related topics may also appear. In general, new product features become eligible for testing on CCIE lab exams six months after general release.
Lab Equipment and Software
The lab exam requires a depth of understanding difficult to obtain without hands-on experience. Early in your preparation, you should arrange access to the equipment and the Cisco IOS Software versions indicated.
There are no formal prerequisites for CCIE certification. Other professional certifications or training courses are not required. Instead, candidates must first pass a written qualification exam and then the corresponding hands-on lab exam. You are expected to have an in-depth understanding of the topics in the exam blueprints and strongly encouraged to have three to five years of job experience before attempting certification. You can review the exam preparation materials included on this page for more information.
