CCIE Routing and Switching Study GroupWelcome to the CCIE Routing & Switching Study Group, the place on the Cisco Learning Network where you can ask questions and share ideas with other members as you prepare for your Certification. This page has been completely redesigned to help you quickly find information you are looking for by organizing discussions into categories according to the exam topics.
General discussions on exam policies, best practices, and other "uncategorized" CCIE Routing and Switching topics.
Discussions on the written exam study material, preparation strategies, scheduling logistics and written exam format.
Discussions on the lab exam study material, preparation strategies, scheduling logistics and lab exam format.
Discussions on the lab exam hardware, virtual and software equipment.
