Question on BSCI exam content

Unanswered Question
Jun 3rd, 2008

I had heard recently that the content of the BSCI exam was the same content that is in the CCIE R&S exam. For example if you study EIGRP you may as well study it like you're taking the CCIE exam because the difficultly of the questions and possibly the format will be the same on the BSCI.

any truth to this?


I have this problem too.

Hi Eric,

After going through the Blue Prints of both exams I find that CCIE RnS Written (350-001) is more complicated than the BSCI.

The 350-001 really drills deep into the theoritical and the practical aspects of the technology, where as the BSCI mostly talks about the practical i.e. implementational aspects.

Hence, to consider BSCI as tough as 350-001 wouldnt be a very pleasant experience, though one has only to gain with that aspect and nothing to loose.

All the best for your exam.

Same technology pool, but at very different depths. On the other hand when I was studying for CCNA, I studied CCNA & CCNP materials. When I was studying for CCNP, I studied CCNP & CCIE material. I'm always looking one level beyond when studying. I'm sure it's all psychological, but it's what works for me.

Thats pretty much what I am doing now, Ive read all of the BSCI official exam guide but I am also reading Routing TCP/IP Vol 1 and 2

Id actually be ok if it was just as hard, I just like to know what I am getting into. :)

thanks guys.
