New CCIE Security lab

Answered Question
Nov 10th, 2008

Hi,

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 ?

Thanks all

I have this problem too.

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.

CCIE labs changing from UniversCD to Cisco Documentation

22 AUG 2008: On Sept 24 2008 CCIE labs will no longer support using the UniversCD documentation for the lab exam.

All labs are migrating to Cisco Documentation only. For those scheduled to take the CCIE lab prior to Sept 24 access will still be available for UniversCD.

The Cisco Documentation pages have the same information that currently resides on UniversCD, please refer to the links on the CCIE web pages to view these pages and become familiar with the new format.

After Sept 24 2008 only the Cisco Documentation web pages will be available for CCIE labs.
