does anybody know in detail the differenced between the both DESGN exams?

I already studied a lot of material concerning the 640-861 but now I found out that's already retired.

Many thanks,

It's a VERY different test. If you thought the old one was bad...just wait, you're in for a treat. I actually think the friggin DESGN exam is harder than a CCIE written because it's so "Cisco" centric vs. technology centric. It's Cisco's way or it's wrong!!! :)

Good luck with this beast. I had to take it 4 times before I passed...and it only took me twice in the CCIE lab to pass the R&S lab exam (and only once for security).
