1. Ask your self what’s the reason to become CCIE
It’s a very tough challenge, candidates must sacrifice social life, time, and money, so there must be a good reason to do it
No need to impress others with the reason, just find it and believe it since it may be the only one that keep you going
Himawan’s Steps to CCIE
Use the mid-level certification
For R&S track, learn CCNP. For SP track, learn CCIP. For Voice track, learn CCVP. For Security track, learn CCSP.
You don’t have to pass the exam, but use the material
Passing the exam can help as checkpoint to see the progress of your study, and to get small reward during CCIE journey
