    because the CCIE is near the pinnacle of of IT networking certs. It costs approx $1,250 (USD) to take the lab and only has a 20% success rate of passing the first time, not to mention a 7 month wait list. Also, iirc, the lab is a 2 day hands-on event that can only be taken at a few locations in the world. There are also only about 6000 CCIE pros in the world. This is why people with CCIE's can easily make so much money, they've earned it. They are the best.

    It's also worth mentioning that most people with a CCIE take the Routing & Switching track. If you were to take the Security track, for example, it would make you a rather rare commodity indeed and likely worth even more money.

    you don't need a book, you just need to experiment and tinker :-)

    personally, i find tech sites and forums a more effective way of getting your feet wet than heading strait to the local B&N. You may find sites like tweakguides.com (and it's forums) quite useful if you are just getting started, at least for the windows platform.

    Search around till you find a community you feel at home with and interact with it. Pick their brains, and your own, and you may be surprised how much you can learn in a relatively short time. The realm of info tech can be rather frustrating at times, but if you truly interested and fascinated by it, stick with it. The possibilities are literally endless.

    At 15, I knew little more than your average computer user.

    Then I came here. Now I'm 18, and I'm a certified IT professional and make about $500-$1000 a week doing various contract jobs. I didn't take any classes, read any books (except one book for my A+ a few months ago), or get any training. Visiting tech sites and these forums (when they were still alive), as well as working on family and friend's computer taught me everything I know. I'm not a genius, either. If it interests you, just stick around and pay attention, and you'll go places.

    Tweakguides is great, Beefysworld is great when we actually discuss technology, and Anandtech is great if you can handle the size.

    what are some other communities?

    IM really having a hard time deciding on a book. Seems like the michael Mayers A+ book gets the best reviews..

    Thanks you guys. I totally agree with the learning in a short time thing, just 6 months ago I had know idea what the difference between RAM and a CPU was. Now im analyzing RAM by the frequency and I know what makes a CPU good or bad. Just yesterday I bought a 19" CRT for 75$ and I had a 40 minute discussion with a real comp. geek about computers, I understood it all! I think I will read a couple computer magazines and read this forum. Thanks to you all for teaching me soooo much!
    Btw, I just looked at the new Core 2 procs, they blow am2 out of the water! AMD is gonna have to lower thier prices dramatically to keep up with Intel. Some of the Core 2's have a freakin 4MB L2 Cache!!! (My current proc has a 128 kb L2, quite pathetic in my opinion.)
