am starting out on the CCIE Security track and seen that there will be a new lab exam for CCIE Security from Aprtil 2009. I dont see any information on changes on the written exam.
My question is if i sit and pass my written exam before April 2009, will i be forced to sit the current lab before its expiry or can i go ahead and do the lab in its new format without my written results being affected ?
Also, any must reads recommended as I start to prepare to take the written exam ?
If you pass the written then you have 18 months to take the LAB. You don't have to take the LAB before April.
Some of the info you study for the written will be useless for the LAB though as the Concentrator will be removed among other changes.
