Nope. Taking the RHCE exam (RH302) doesn't necessary mean that you will
end up with RHCT - you still must be able to complete all the required
RHCT competencies in order to earn the RHCT certification.

Here's the typical route for an "experienced" or "good enuff" 
:: Attend the Rapid Track (RH300) and then take the RHCE Exam (RH302)
where the requirements of the exams are as follows:

The two parts of the RHCE Exam consist of:
Section I: Troubleshooting and System Maintenance (2.5 hours)
Section II: Installation and Configuration (3 hours)

In order to pass the Red Hat Certified Engineer exam under Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4, you must meet all of the following requirements:
a score of 80 or higher on Section I, consisting of five compulsory and
five optionals problems;
successful completion of the five Section I compulsory troubleshooting
problems within one hour of that section's start time;
70 percent or more on the RHCT-level skills in Section II;
70 percent or more on the RHCE-level skills in Section II.

These last two requirements enable RHCEs to demonstrate that they
possess both RHCT-level and RHCE-level skills, as well as enabling a
person who only has RHCT level skills to earn RHCT if they pass the
required competencies.

Candidates will be emailed exam results within three business days
following the exam.
