Cisco has announced some slight changes to all CCIE Written exams.

Effective February 17th, 2009, candidates will also see two other changes in CCIE written exams. First, candidates will now be required to answer each question before moving on to the next question; candidates will no longer be allowed to skip a question and come back to it at a later time. Second, there will be an update to the score report. The overall exam score and the exam passing score will now be reported as a scaled score, on a scale from 300-1000. This change will not affect the difficulty of the current set of exams and will assure CCIE written exams will be consistent with Cisco’s other career certification exams.

    I better move fast to take my security written before the change.


  2. Yeah – in this exam – some questions were answered by other questions – so this change will make it harder for sure!

    Well, I was working on IE Sec WB Vol-1 before going for Security Written exam. Now I have to drop everything and go for written first.

  4. Well – the good news is there is a bunch of carryover for the written and the lab. The only time I got really, really, frustrated in the written prep was when it involved technologies that ARE NOT in the lab. It is tough to feel like it is time well spent when that happens. Even though learning any technology is good – it is still tough. :-)

    I failed my first written attempt – Rosetta stone questions did not help. Only after my score report did I realize that I was fundamentally lacking in very basic protocol operation. On my second attempt, usage of the back button did not help that much. It was nice to review the questions again, but I didn’t change much.
