Bollocks. If you have _any_ hands on networking experience at all, you cam
buy an $90 book, and sit a $190 exam to get it.
It helps if you have a little experience with Cisco kit, but it's not
really required if you read the book properly.
The CCNP and CCIE require _much_ more hands on experience, and are not for
the faint hearted.

Tells you everything you need to know.
The exams are run by Sylvan Prometric, who also do Novell, Microsoft, and
just about everything else.
