For those of you who have certified as CCIE could you discuss your opinions on how the learning curve from the CCNP to the CCIE compares to that from CCNA to CCNP. Is going from CCNA to CCNP just as challenging as going from CCNP to CCIE, or is one of the learning curves tougher than the other.  Please share your thoughts.  Thanks.

it does not; or hard to compare; both ccna and ccnp exams come with books written for those exams; concepts are somewhat limited; there are several books one must have for ccie plus other sources like cisco documentation, workbooks, etc.  there are many ccie topics that are not on ccnp or exist in workplace.  some of ccie topics are seldom if never implemented in real world; some complain that ccie is too academic and not based on real world implementations of networking.
